KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Grimsby

  • When you’re in Lincolnshire and looking for a car hire in Grimsby, you can do so through KAYAK and have the freedom to roam the town and more of the county. In the fifties, the town held the honour of being the world’s largest dedicated fishing port, so many of the attractions in the town are related to this industry, like the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre and the Grimsby Dock Tower. You can also drive to the Humber Estuary edge of town, where you’ll find Cleethorpes Country Park and the celebrated Cleethorpes Pier.
  • Getting to the city by air is a matter of landing at Humberside Airport, which is a 12-mile drive away once you’ve finished sorting out your Grimsby car hire. The major operators like Hertz and Avis can be found right inside the arrivals hall of the terminal building as you walk out having collected your luggage from the carousel. You can take the 5-minute walk across to the hire car parking lot by turning left as you exit the terminal and following the main access road through the airport.
  • Driving in Grimsby is much the same as it is in any typical UK coastal city, in that you can expect both seasonal traffic and daily commercial traffic. So be prepared for a near constant flow of a cross-section of vehicles and plenty of pedestrians. There are also cyclists about so as a rule of thumb you should drive carefully. The locals are very friendly, so don’t hesitate to ask for directions if you’re unsure of exactly how to get to your destination.
  • Try not to get caught up in rush hour traffic in Grimsby as some of the roads can very clogged up during these times of day. This small city can be busy in the mornings, as the congestion peaks between 08:00 and 09:00, with peak evening rush hour from 16:00 till around 17:00. In particular, these are Peaks Parkway, especially accessing it from Welholme Road, Cleethorpes Road, and the A180 Grimsby Road between Blundell Avenue and Tiverton Street. Rather take smaller roads like Ellis Way and Freeman Street.
  • Book your car hire in Grimsby at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact car hire in Grimsby are around 42% cheaper than other car types, on average
