Enjoy the freedom that a car hire in Warrington provides and explore the town at your own pace, rather than waiting on other methods of transport. Not only more convenient than waiting for a bus or a train, Warrington car hire is also far more flexible, allowing you to reach places of interest that aren’t as well-connected. Visit the famous Alton Towers theme park, which is around a 1.5hr drive from the town centre, and don’t spend the day waiting around for alternative modes of transport to get you there.
Only a 26-mile journey from the town centre is Manchester Airport (MAN), one of the largest international airports in the UK. To hire a car here, you must first catch a free shuttle bus from any of the terminals, which leave every 10min or so. From the terminals, just follow the signs to Manchester Airport Car Rental Village bus stop, where you’ll be able to catch the shuttle. There are many options of car hire companies to choose from, such as Europcar and Enterprise, offering a wide variety of vehicles for your Warrington car hire.
Being the largest town in Cheshire, Warrington is certainly on the larger side, so if you’re not familiar with the roads, it might be wise to opt for a navigation system for your car hire in Warrington so that you don’t get lost. Warrington, whilst not as busy as neighbouring cities, attracts a lot of visitors over the weekend for shopping and to unwind, so the roads can get busy and there may be more people crossing the road before waiting for the traffic lights to change, so stay alert to this. There are also cycle lanes on the roads in Warrington, so it’s important to double-check before turning to make sure that there isn’t a cyclist nearby.
Due to its proximity to both Liverpool and Manchester, lots of people commute to work in the larger cities, so during rush hour (between 8:00 and 9:00 and 17:00 and 18:00), the roads will be noticeably busier with more delays. It’s advised to avoid travelling at these times during weekdays. Similarly, at the weekend, Warrington attracts many visitors as it has lots to offer, including museums, a theme park and a canal path, so be prepared for a slower journey time. Priestly Street, in particular, can get extremely busy due to the fact it connects Warrington to roads that go towards Liverpool. As Warrington is in the north of England, it is likely it will get snow in the winter months too, which tends to affect the roads and slow journeys down noticeably.
