KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Bradford

  • There are plenty of good reasons to opt for car hire in Bradford rather than relying on public transport. Chief among them are the flexibility and independence you’ll gain to explore the city on your own schedule. You can drive out on a whim to visit Ilkley, the oldest historical site in the area. The wonderful 17th-century manor house of East Riddlesden Hall is close by too, as is Cartwright Hall. You can also take a short drive to one of the oldest buildings in the city, Bolling Hall, which dates all the way back to the 14th century.
  • Getting to Bradford by air means you will land at Leeds–Bradford Airport. It’s about 6.5 miles away from the town, so it won’t take you long to get there. You can collect your Bradford car hire right at the airport. Book your choice of vehicle from a range of well-known brands through KAYAK and then, when you arrive, head to the car hire centre. You will find it on the east side of the main terminal building, only a short walk away from Arrivals. Once there, simply look for the signage of the brand you’ve booked, be it Avis, Europcar, Hertz or any other you have chosen.
  • You’ll need to be very aware of both vehicle and pedestrian traffic in Bradford. Although it’s not the biggest city in West Yorkshire, it nonetheless requires consideration when you’re driving. Watch out for the traffic on the Leeds Road into Bradford in particular, as there are many smaller side streets that can be obscured. On Midland Road be aware of faster traffic that can sometimes come up behind you without warning.
  • Rush hours have become increasingly busy over the years here, so be aware of the time of day when you are planning to visit the tourist attractions. It’s best to plan activities that don’t involve driving through the city centre around 08:00 and from roughly 16:00 to 17:00. The M62 Westbound in particular can get very busy.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Bradford for €47 or less
  • Book your car hire in Bradford at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car in Bradford

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Bradford?

    As with so many smaller cities in the UK, it’s recommended to opt for the most compact and fuel-efficient city models if you intend to stay in or explore the centre of town. Bradford has a busy business district, so if you’re visiting for these purposes then you may want to upgrade to a sedan, but try to keep it as small as you can. The surrounding areas of Bradford are easy to get around, so if you want to explore more of the Leeds area then you can book a wide variety of different vehicles, including MPVs, sedans, luxury models and 4x4s, which are very appropriate choices.

Car hire insurance in Bradford

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Bradford car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Bradford.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Bradford car hire.
