Car hire in York
Hiring a car in York
Known in some parts as the unofficial capital of the north, York is one of England's oldest and most historic cities. The way in which the city has been protected over the centuries has also allowed it to become one of the most visited and indeed attractive places for tourists to come year after year.
With its tiny cobbled streets, beautiful centuries-old architecture and a veritable vault of stories to be told, York makes for an ideal holiday destination in England for anyone looking to capture the spirit of the past and see how people from days gone by in England lived their lives. No matter where you turn, there's a building, street or local with a story to tell.
What you need to know
York itself is mostly doable by foot, with many of the tourist attractions and hotels located in and around the compact little city centre. However, with the rest of Yorkshire on your doorstep, there's plenty to see, and travel between these places is more convenient and easier with a hired car.
Booking with Holiday Autos allows you the chance to compare prices easily, with over 1,500 major car hire suppliers to choose from. Our website makes it simple to find the best price for you, and you have peace of mind with our 24/7 support and free cancellation and amendments.
Where to pick up your car
There are a number of car hire providers with offices dotted around York, making it easy for you to pick up your vehicle when you arrive in the city so you can start your historic and cultural Yorkshire adventure. We can arrange for your keys and documents to be available when you arrive at your chosen provider so you can get on the road without delays.
For those flying into Yorkshire, you won't be coming into York itself, but the nearby Leeds-Bradford Airport (LBA). You can arrange to pick up your car keys in the arrivals hall of the airport, where many of the providers are.
