If you’re going to be spending your time close to the beach, we’d certainly recommend that you opt for a little city car when you’re booking car hire in Blackpool. You’ll be able to park it easily and walk around the Promenade or onto the beaches and piers. You can then easily make your way back through the traffic without too much hassle. If you want to be a bit more extravagant about it, then a convertible suits the location very well too.
Be very careful about observing speed limits in Blackpool. These speed limits take serious cognisance of the number of pedestrians in the streets, and most central and beach zones have 20mph limits. Otherwise, it’s the standard 30mph in residential areas. Just make sure that you keep an eye out for when the zones change – they’re well signposted.
