Top tips for renting a car in Carlisle

  • Take a trip to the north of England and use your Carlisle car hire to explore this border city and beyond. Utilise your car hire in Carlisle to drive around the city and visit harder-to-reach areas, which other transport methods aren’t as convenient for. Take in all the sights of the city, such as Carlisle Cathedral, before driving out to Watchtree Nature Reserve. Around a 20min drive and 8.5 miles from the city centre, you will have much more flexibility for getting here with car hire than alternative modes of transport such as bus or taxi.
  • The closest major airport to Carlisle is Newcastle Airport (NCL), which is about 50 miles away and takes around 1h 15min to reach. Here you will find a range of car hire companies to choose from for your onward journey. Car hire companies such as Avis and Europcar can all be found within the main terminal building in the Arrivals hall. One you’ve got your keys, you will be taken to your car to check it over before you can set off on the rest of your journey. There is only one terminal at this airport, so you will find it easy to locate the car hire kiosks upon arrival.
  • Carlisle is a relatively large city close to the Scottish border. It also isn’t that far from Newcastle, so during peak times roads can get quite busy with visitors and commuters. A popular university city, there will be lots of students during term time, so keep an eye out for pedestrians crossing the road, especially during the evening on Botchergate, which is where the majority of the bars can be located. Cycling is also becoming more popular across the UK, including in Carlisle, so you can expect a significant number of cyclists on the road. Keep an eye out for them with Carlisle car hire, particularly when turning or on roundabouts.
  • Carlisle is a popular town for both its own Roman history and its close proximity to the Scottish border. Throughout the year there will be many tourists driving to the city, so it can get busy. During rush hour (between 08:00 and 09:00, then from 17:00 to 18:00), there is also likely to be an increase in traffic, with many locals heading to work from inside and outside the city. Others will be travelling towards Newcastle for work, which can make Brampton Old Road rather busy during peak times. The city centre can also get busy during the weekends, as tourists travel to see the impressive cathedral and the iconic Old Town Hall. Take this into account when you’re driving with car hire in Carlisle, so that you don’t unnecessarily travel during the busiest time.
  • Book your rental car in Carlisle at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Carlisle are around 45% cheaper than other car types, on average
