KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Halifax

  • Car hire in Halifax gives you greater flexibility compared to alternative modes of transport, such as buses, taxis or trains. This is because you won’t be reliant on public transport timetables, so you can depart at a time suitable for you and drive to your destination directly. For instance, if you want to travel to Peak District National Park, you can drive there in about 35 minutes. If you were to take public transport, not only would you have to abide by the bus schedule, but it takes close to 2 hours to complete the trip.
  • Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) is one of the closest terminals to Halifax and boasts a wide selection of car hire companies. Once you arrive at the airport terminal, you can walk to the Car Rental Centre with ease, where there are branches such as Enterprise and Alamo. This takes about 10min and is signposted well on Whitehouse Lane. Before you can get your vehicle, you’ll be asked to complete your paperwork and provide the necessary documents to your Halifax car hire provider.
  • Using car hire in Halifax, you will find that the town can get very busy with visitors and locals. As jaywalking rules do not apply in the UK, you can expect people to cross the road in areas that are not official pedestrian crossings – be sure to keep an eye out for this when driving. Halifax is also a popular area for cyclists, so you should remain vigilant and regularly check your mirrors.
  • When driving a Halifax hire car, you will find the roads can get extremely busy, especially during rush hour when people commute to nearby cities such as Leeds for work. Rush hour is normally from 8:00 to 9:00 and 17:00 to 18:00, so it’s best to avoid these times if you don’t want to drive amongst lots of traffic. The A58 is one road that can get especially busy, with it being a key road that links Halifax to Leeds and Bradford.
  • Book your car hire in Halifax at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Halifax are around 37% cheaper than other car types, on average
