KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Leigh

  • Car hire in Leigh gives you enhanced flexibility with your onward journey, allowing you to depart at times that are suitable for you. You can also go direct to your destination, which isn’t always possible with public transport. For instance, you can drive to Wigan in about 30min. If you were to take a bus or train this takes around 45min and you would also have to abide by the timetables.
  • Liverpool J. Lennon Airport (LPL) is one of the most convenient terminals to get to Leigh. It boasts a selection of car hire offices to pick from, so it’s easy to get your ideal car. After you have landed and passed through customs you will be able to locate the branches with ease. For instance, Green Motion is in the arrivals hall, whilst Hertz is reachable via a free shuttle service. Your Leigh car hire provider will request payment, proof of ID and completion of paperwork before you will be shown your car.
  • Using car hire in Leigh, you’ll find it’s a busy town close to Liverpool and Manchester. Driving tends to be relatively relaxed here, which is good for those driving a hire car. Be aware that if you drive into one of the nearby cities the driving style will turn more impatient, so you’ll need to drive with confidence. As there are no jaywalking laws in the UK, you should watch out for pedestrians stepping into the road. Remember to check your mirrors as there are lots of cyclists in the UK too, so you must always be aware of your surroundings.
  • When driving a Leigh hire car you will notice it gets very busy, especially during rush hour when locals travel to and from work in Liverpool and Manchester. This happens around 8:00 to 9:00 and 17:00 to 18:00. If you prefer quieter roads, it’s recommended that you avoid these times. One of the roads that gets the most traffic is the A579, which goes through the centre of the town. An alternative road you can try is the B5215, which should be quieter.
  • Book your car hire in Leigh at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Leigh are around 56% cheaper than other car types, on average
