KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Tamworth

  • Car hire in Tamworth is one of the best ways to get around the local area. Tamworth is set in the heart of Staffordshire, England; this makes it the ideal location to explore the country. A car hire in Tamworth gives you the freedom to get out and enjoy the landscapes and adjoining towns. The area is steeped in history with so many interesting and exciting things to see, like Warwick Castle, which is only 35 miles south and England’s second biggest city, Birmingham, just 25 miles southwest of Tamworth.
  • Picking up or dropping off your Tamworth car hire is easy as many companies have offices in the town and at both Manchester Airport and Birmingham airports. Manchester airport’s car hire village is accessible via a free bus service from all terminals. At Birmingham Airport car hire desks are found in the arrival’s hall.
  • Planning your trips out is always a good thing to do; however, should you feel the urge to be spontaneous, adding a GPS mapping system when you book your car hire is highly recommended. Once you leave the fast motorways and get into the towns and country roads, finding your way around can be tricky. A navigation system will stop you from getting stuck the wrong way on a one-way street or missing the turn with no way back for another 15 miles.
  • In Tamworth and across Staffordshire, there are various priority lanes in operation. Bus lanes are clearly marked with signs and on the road. Be very careful with these as you can pick up a fine by driving in one. The traffic in the area will be at its busiest during the rush hours. These are from 07:45 to 09:30 in the morning and 17:15 to about 18:30. Most of the town's cycle lanes are off-road; however, many cyclists still use the main roads to get about, so you should always be on the lookout for them. The town centre can get very busy with pedestrians. Always air on the side of caution when driving in the centre as people can often step out without looking.
  • Book your car hire in Tamworth at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Tamworth are around 6% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Tamworth

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

    If most of your driving is going to be done in Tamworth, you should opt for a smaller car. City streets can be tight, and a small car is ideal for getting about town.

For the best of both worlds, the medium-sized class gives you flexibility around town and comfort on longer journeys.

The price was very good value,The staff were friendly and helpful we agreed to an upgrade which didnt cost the earth. The car was damaged in many places but not the hire companies fault. The only problem i had as a regular hire car user it could have been cleaner before we collected. But yes we would use then again without question,
