Important information about Manchester car hire

If you are hiring a car in Manchester and planning a drive to Scotland, you will not need any kind of documentation or permit for that crossing as the UK, while defined as separate areas, is all in one. If you are heading to Ireland, you are best to check with the car rental locations in Manchester, as most companies will allow that travel; however, some do not include insurance coverage while on the ferry, so you may need to add additional coverage or be cautious that you have no coverage for that portion of travel. If you are planning to continue your adventures on to Europe, you will need to check requirements of each destination in regards to additional driving permits, as they do differ country to country. Some Manchester car hire companies will allow you to travel to Europe with your hire car, though there will likely be mandatory additional insurance and roadside coverage.

There is an increasing demand for car hire in Manchester and the rest of the UK with a debit card, as not everyone has a credit card in their name. Not all companies will allow this as a form of payment yet, though some of the cheap car rentals in Manchester have adopted this as an option including Enterprise, Sixt, and Easirent. You will generally see information about this before being able to book your car hire. In some cases, an additional deposit is required if paying for your car hire in Manchester with a debit card, though check with the specific office location. The major companies do not yet accept this method of payment and still require a credit card, such as Hertz or Avis. If you are booking your car hire in Manchester with a company that does accept debit cards as payment, the card will still need to be in the same name as your driving licence, so take note of this.

There are very strict rules around mobile phone usage while driving in Manchester, and heavy fines apply if they are not obeyed. A hands-free device is the only acceptable use of a mobile phone while driving, it is against the law to even hold it in your hand. Peak hour is much the same as the rest of the UK, weekdays from 7:00-9:30 and 16:00-18:30 in the afternoon see heavy congestion and can be tricky. Do keep an eye out for bus lanes, as these are not permitted to be used by cars unless in an emergency circumstance, such as making way for an emergency vehicle, but in some situations you are permitted to use them to cross certain intersections. Parking can also be difficult and is heavily monitored. Realistically, the laws in Manchester are much the same as other busy cities in the UK.

The main requirement is your driving licence, and if it is not printed in English it will need to be accompanied by an International driving licence. You will also need to provide a photo ID, such as a passport, and in some cases you will also need to provide a third form of ID to confirm your address such as a utility bill. It is also a requirement that you bring confirmation of your Manchester car hire booking. The requirement for drivers in the UK is a minimum age of 21, and validity of 3 years on your full driving licence. Some car hire in Manchester will also require that international drivers provide proof of accommodation and onward travel.
