Car hire in Halifax
Nestling in a beautiful part of the Pennines, Halifax is located in easy reach of many great northern towns and cities, as well as stunning countryside.
What I need to know
Halifax car hire is really easy, as you can choose vehicles from a number of different big-brand providers in and around town. Use our dedicated site before you go to find a suitable vehicle at a great price. We also offer unbeatable round-the-clock support in case you need us.
Where to pick up my car
Each car rental provider in Halifax will have their own offices, so there's no central pick-up point. However, you can use the map on our site of all the companies with cars available for your chosen dates. This makes it simple to see which provider is most convenient for you.
“The pick-up was easy, it took 5 minutes from arriving at the desk to driving out the car, and the return took even less time.”
Where to go
The interactive and educational museum Eureka! is a great family attraction in Halifax, but visitors will also enjoy taking in the viewpoints, canal paths and reservoirs that make this part of the Pennines so beautiful.
Car hire drivers in Halifax will find many major towns and cities in conveniently close reach. For instance, Leeds is just half an hour down the motorway, while places such as Huddersfield, Bradford, Keighley and Wakefield are also close by.
The charming town of Skipton, which boasts a castle in the town centre, is another good option if you want to drive out.
Manchester is just an hour away down the M62 and is well worth exploring. The city was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and visitors can trace this history at the interactive Museum of Science & Industry.
It's also a great destination for sports fans, as it's home to attractions such as the National Football Museum, while visitors can enjoy stadium tours at both Manchester United and Manchester City.
Eating and drinking
Halifax offers a wide variety of eating and drinking establishments, with all tastes and dietary requirements suitably catered for.
But you can't go to this part of the world and not try an authentic Yorkshire pudding or relax with a cup of Yorkshire tea.
Things to do
Halifax is home to Eureka! - a fully interactive museum designed to inspire children to find out about themselves and the world around them.
With six galleries based around different themes, visitors can carry out all sorts of activities, explore the equipment on offer and come away with a priceless knowledge and understanding of various scientific concepts.
Halifax is the perfect place to explore the moorlands of the South Pennines. The Upper Calder Valley is certainly worth heading to in your hire car, where you can check out the charming towns of Hebden Bridge, Todmorden, Mytholmroyd, Luddendenfoot, and Sowerby Bridge. You might recognise many of the sights from the TV series Happy Valley, which was filmed in the area.
