Car hire in Wales


Wales is the home of the original inhabitants of England, the Celtic tribes who were driven out by the hard eyed men of the Saxon and Angle tribes. They, in their turn, were encroached on, then invaded by the Norsemen, most famously William the Conqueror.

The Welsh, in their fastness, kept largely to their old ways, so it's a little softer, a little less well organised, and extremely nice. What slowed the invaders down, and eventually defeated them, was the thing Wales is very good at, vertical countryside.

So if you're driving it's worth while giving the poor old car a breather every now and then. . . fortunately there's just everything to stop and have a bit of a look at, and you'll keep the car for ever and ever, just to get to see that one more thing.

Then there's evenings in pubs with locals telling you tales of the Phoenecians and Joseph of Aramathea and singing at the drop of a hat ... well, only if they are in the mood.

The Welsh were never particularly taken with the notion of public transport, (". . . well, boy, if one of us owns a car, then that's public, isn't it?") so a car is a must to experience all Wales has to offer.

Our "Quote and Pick" booking process will provide you with competing quotes from all our car providers in the area you want to travel, and then you can choose which quote suits you best.

Simply choose a region from the list below and click on the region, or a major city. Either way you'll get to the right page, and then you can make a booking as you'd like it to be, instead of the way some hire company wants it to be.

To sample Wales take your hire car and look around the place.

How to get about the hilliest bit of the British Isles.

After that, take your pick . . . the whole of Wales is your oyster . . . so enjoy.
