Top tips for hiring a car in Yorkshire

  • If you are visiting Bradford from Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA), you can reach the city in around 30 minutes as it is around eight miles away from the airport, along the A658.  Be aware that on-street parking in Bradford is mainly reserved for residents, however, you can find many cheap parking options in the city car parks with prices starting at around £0.60 per hour, up to around £3.00 for a whole day, leaving you plenty of time to wander around and discover the local history of this industrial town.
  • Be aware of the rush hours in the United Kingdom which fall usually between 08:00 and 10:00 in the morning and again between 17:00 and 19:00 in the evening when commuters can congest the traffic flows.  This is particularly prevalent around the city ring roads, especially around Leeds. Try to avoid the busy periods if returning along the A658 Harrogate route to the airport, as this road is especially busy during rush hours, or alternatively, give yourself plenty of time to return your hire car.
  • Remember to check your fuel policy for your hire vehicle as you may need to refill your tank before returning it.  If you are approaching the airport from the Bradford direction, you can find a Sainsbury’s local petrol station on Apperley Lane, which is situated just off the roundabout on the A658.  If you are approaching from Leeds, you can find many 24-hour stations located on the A6210 ring road. There is another petrol station two miles from the airport in nearby Yeadon, although it would be advisable to check the closing times as it is situated in a small village.

FAQs about hiring a car in Yorkshire

  • What is driving like in Yorkshire?

    The motorways and A-roads of Yorkshire are very well connected to all the major cities and towns in the region, and all are toll free, except for the Humber Bridge in Hull, East Yorkshire which requires a fee to cross.  Driving is on the left in the United Kingdom, and you will find that the roads are generally of a good quality.  You may find in rural or countryside areas, that roads can be narrower and more bendy, so if you plan to head out to more of these areas, a 4x4 may be a good idea.  Potholes can be a regular feature of many country roads due to frequent rainfall in the area, so a sturdy vehicle is always a good option.  Road signage is usually very well marked, even in rural areas.
