KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Gloucester

  • Take in this cathedral city in the best way possible, with a car hire in Gloucester. Enjoy the flexibility and freedom that car hire gives you, so you can visit the top tourist sites at your leisure. Not only does car hire in Gloucester give you a great chance to see this charming city itself, but you can also explore popular sites outside of the city too, such as the picturesque Cotswolds. Be at one with nature and take a 20-minute drive to Crickley Hill Country Park, which is much faster and more convenient than alternative transport methods like the bus.
  • Around a one hour drive, or 60 miles, from Gloucester is one of the largest airports in England, Birmingham Airport (BHX). At this airport you’ll find a large selection of vehicles that you can hire from numerous rental companies. Well known rental companies, such as SIXT and Europcar, are easy to find inside the airport, as they are located in the Arrivals Hall. All you need to do is follow the signs to the car hire desks within the Arrivals Hall, which is inside the main terminal building.
  • Gloucester is a cathedral city in the south-west of England and is relatively simple to drive around, especially if you have the added benefit of a sat nav in your Gloucester hire car. An extremely popular city with tourists, you’ll find it will get very busy in the town centre, especially around Gloucester Cathedral, where it’s important to stay alert to pedestrians crossing the road without warning. Gloucester is also a cycle-friendly city, so there are often several cyclists on the roads. So, be sure to keep an eye-out for cyclists within your immediate vicinity and to give them a wide berth when overtaking.
  • A relatively peaceful part of the UK, Gloucester still has its busy moments on the road. Due to lots of locals commuting to work in Bristol, rush hour (between 8:00 and 9:00 and 17:00 to 18:00) can lead to the roads getting very busy. During these busier periods, it will take longer to get to your destination. Corinium Avenue can get particularly busy, as it connects Gloucester to the M5, which goes towards Bristol. Due to the popular tourist attractions, such as the cathedral and the nearby Cotswolds, you can expect an influx of people over the weekend, which makes driving and parking in the city harder than during quieter periods.
  • Book your car hire in Gloucester at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Gloucester are around 47% cheaper than other car types, on average
