KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Stockton-on-Tees

  • When you’re visiting Stockton-on-Tees, you’ll benefit from hiring a car rather than relying on the city’s transport system. You’ll be free to drive to any tourist spot or destination in the city centre without having to rely on public transport and fixed routes. You can drive out of town to visit attractions in the area too, like Saltholme Wildlife Reserve and Discovery Park or Cowpen Bewley Woodland Park, both wonderful nature reserves with a variety of animal habitats. A must-see in the harbour is HM Bark Endeavour, the ship on which Captain Cook made his maiden voyage to Australia. Car hire in Stockton-on-Tees will give you the independence to do all of this and more.
  • Stockton-on-Tees doesn’t have its own airport, and the nearest one to the city is Teesside International Airport, which is 8 miles away and serves the entire region of the county. The car hire operators like Hertz and Enterprise don’t have kiosks in the terminal. Instead you can find them all right across the road from the arrivals terminal and it will take you under 2min to get there. Once your car hire in Stockton-on-Tees is all organised, it’s only about a 15-minute drive to get to the city along the A66 motorway, which is a fast flowing road in good condition.
  • The city centre of Stockton-on-Tees is quite a busy shopping district and also has a large entertainment area. You should drive with caution here, especially at night, as the vehicle and pedestrian traffic can be unpredictable. One of the city’s other main characteristics is the constant stream of different festivals it hosts throughout the year. These range from the arts to cycling festivals, so be aware of large groups of people walking around during these times, and especially for cyclists during the latter.
  • Stockton-on-Tees does experience significant rush hours, so be prepared for that. It can be a little longer than usual because of its density, so avoid the busiest roads between 07:30 and 09:00, and again from around 16:00 to 18:00. In fact, Stockton-on-Tees boasts one of the slowest roads in the Teesside area during rush hour, so don’t go near the A1305 Riverside Southbound into and out of the city centre or the A1046 on the Westbound and Eastbound sides, also known as Haverton Hill Road.
  • Book your car hire in Stockton-on-Tees at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Stockton-on-Tees are around -3% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Stockton-on-Tees

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Stockton-on-Tees?

    You’ll need to take the heavy traffic into account when you’re choosing the right Stockton-on-Tees car hire option. Ideally you’ll want something small and nippy, to lessen the effect a little, but if that will be too small, then stick to a small sedan. The roads surrounding the city are good, so these will still stand you in good stead if you want to go driving around out of town to visit the nature reserves – you won’t need an SUV or MPV for that. If you’re only basing yourself in one of the outer suburbs in order to explore Durham, then you can get a more spacious saloon car, or something sportier even.
