KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Scarborough

  • If you opt for car hire in Scarborough, you won't be reliant on public transport to visit tourist attractions or go to the beach. You can drive to wherever you want, which alleviates the hassle of planning your activities around public transport routes and timetables. There's lots to see on the Yorkshire coast. You can drive to nearby Pickering to visit the Beck Isle Museum and watch age-old blacksmithery in action, or take the kids to Playdale Farm Park.
  • When flying in, you'll land at the nearest airport, which is Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA). Book your car hire in Scarborough for the most convenience – your vehicle will be waiting for you when you arrive. You'll have a few of the most popular brands to choose from. Their kiosks are located in the airport's Car Rental Centre. This is about a 10-minute walk from the terminal building. The route is clearly marked. If you prefer, you can take a free shuttle from the terminal exit.
  • If you're thinking of booking car hire in Scarborough, you can look forward to a pleasant driving experience, no different to other smaller UK cities. As always, avoid the bus lanes and watch out for cyclists in the cycling lanes. The road surfaces are in good condition and usually well maintained. The roads can become a bit challenging when it snows, and you can expect traffic build-up at these times. Increase your following distance, and make sure to check the daily conditions in advance at the Met Office website.
  • One of the main hassles about driving in Scarborough is that the traffic can slow to a crawl in along the seafront and on the Marine Drive. Exercise patience and be prepared to drive at around 15 mph in places. Watch out for tourists and other pedestrians in this area too. Some roads can get clogged during the rush hours too – from about 06:30-08:00 in the morning and around 16:00-18:00 in the evening. The bustling A64 and Cayton Low Road are especially busy, so try to avoid it at these times.
  • Book your car hire in Scarborough at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Scarborough?

    You have a pretty free hand when it comes to Scarborough car hire options. The road surfaces are good, so make your decision based on the size of your party. You won't need much more than a small city car if you're alone; otherwise, a saloon will do you fine. Families and larger groups should look at something like an MPV or even a minibus. One small thing to mention is that the roads can get icy in some winters, so you might want to get something with more traction, like a 2x4. And don't hesitate if you'd rather hire an electric vehicle, as there are rapid EV charging stations in the main Scarborough car park.

  • What's the speed limit in Scarborough?

    The speed limits in Scarborough conform to the national UK traffic laws. In other words, you can only drive at up to 30 mph in the city centre, it's built-up areas, and suburbs. On single carriageway roads outside these areas, the speed limit is 60 mph where there is no lane separator in the middle. On dual carriageways and motorways, you can increase your speed to up to 70 mph. Watch out for signs where the speed limit drops to 20 mph in certain parts of the city, especially in the vicinity of schools.

  • Where are the best places to park in Scarborough?

    You won't struggle much to find free parking in Scarborough, unless it's a particularly busy day. There's a free car park on Falconers Road, one at St Nicholas Parade, and others at Westwood, South Bay and on Victoria Road. Paid parking is also easy to come by, and quite reasonable. The Somerset Terrace car park charges £1.50 for 2 hours, and the one on Pavilion Square will cost you £1.80 for the same amount of time.

Pros:

We picked up the car in York, England and drove to Edinburgh, Scotland followed by a tour of western Scotland on the way to Inverness. We drove the next day to my great grandmother's home town, Aberlour. We decided to drive to Wales instead of taking the train. Now we are in Wales and will leave tomorrow for SW England. We have grown attached to our little car and wish we could adopt it.
