KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Salford

  • Car hire in Salford is a convenient way to get around as you'll have the freedom to explore on your own timetable. It's easy to access Manchester on the M60 highway if you want to visit the city for the day. There is access to public transport in Salford, but renting a car is much more comfortable. If you are city bound most of the time, you would only need a car to access the city and beyond.
  • The best place to pick up your hire car in Salford is at the main Manchester Airport, where you can choose from around eight major car companies like Avis, Budget, Hertz, Enterprise and more. Collecting a hire car at the airport is very convenient, as easy highway access takes you to Salford. When you arrive at the airport, you'll find the car rental counters in the main terminals, and they will then direct you to a free bus service where you will pick up your car from the rental car park.
  • Like any city, Salford roads can become quite congested, especially at peak driving times or outside tourist venues. You should also drive with extreme caution in rainy weather. Salford is surrounded by a network of motorways for easy access to Manchester and cities further afield like Liverpool. If you follow the basic rules of the road, you'll have a pleasant driving experience. Plan your trips for the day so you can decide what route to take and avoid any congestion. There are quite a few one-way roads, so make sure you have a working GPS or map system on your phone to navigate.
  • Besides the typical difficulties of driving in a major city like congestion, parking and avoiding peak times, when driving your hire car in Salford, be aware of the often rainy and misty weather. As it is known to rain a lot in Salford, ensure you drive with less speed and know where the demister is and how the windscreen wipers work. Familiarise yourself with these features before you take your Salford hire car out for the day to avoid being caught unawares in a downpour.
  • Book your car hire in Salford at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • What type of car do you recommend for driving in Salford?

    The best type of car to hire in Salford depends on what sort of trip you are planning. Still, if you will do most of your driving on tarred city streets and motorways, consider a compact car to navigate the city easily. On the other hand, if you want more interior space for luggage and to feel slightly safer driving on wet roads, you might consider a larger SUV or four-by-four for comfort and safety.

  • What’s the speed limit in Salford?

    Depending on the type of road, there will be different speed limits. The built-up inner city roads and neighbourhoods have a 40 mph (60kph) speed limit, but certain areas reduce their limits to 20 or 30 mph (50kph) to limit the number of accidents. When travelling on the motorway, there is a maximum speed of 70 mph (120km) when there are at least two lanes. Exercise caution in rainy weather and always reduce your speed.

  • Where are the best places to park in Salford?

    You can find some off-street parking in Salford, but generally, it is much easier to find a car park for the day. There are many Pay and Display car parks dotted around all the main areas. Look for car parks run by Salford City Council, where you pay per hour, and parking is free on Sundays and Bank Holidays. You can also find parking at Cleminson Car Park, Irwell Place, Radcliffe Car Park and Media City Multi-Storey car park. These are your best options if you want to leave your car in a safe spot for the day.

Pros:

The car was very clean and friendly service. A little over priced compared to what you can get at the airport but needs must.
