KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Stoke-on-Trent

  • The capital of the English pottery industry, Stoke-on-Trent is affectionately referred to as "the Potteries" and is also the centre of culture and arts in the county of Staffordshire. A car hire in Stoke-on-Trent is the most flexible and exciting means to discover key attractions like lavish Trentham House and the Apedale Valley Light Railway for a sense of its history. Head north via the M6 towards Liverpool (57 miles) or Manchester (44 miles) if you seek a taste of big city fun to round out your experiences.
  • A Stoke-on-Trent car hire at Manchester Airport (MAN) is preferable if you intend to travel by plane and there are several international providers like Sixt, Hertz and National who can offer you a variety of vehicles for your travel needs. The airport’s Car Hire Centre is not located in the Arrivals Hall, but there is a dedicated bus stop just outside each terminal from which a complimentary shuttle picks up passengers every 10min and ferries them to the area.
  • Stoke-on-Trent is regarded as one of the UK’s most congested places which means that morning and evening rush hours could provide quite the challenge to unprepared drivers. Adding extra time for travel will depend on distance, but is a good way to stay on schedule whenever possible. Heavy congestion also means you should expect increased motorcycle, bike and pedestrian traffic, especially in the city centre where the A50, A52 and the Queensway crisscross the city.
  • Trends indicate that the 17:00-18:00 hour is becoming one of the busiest hours of the evening rush in the city of Stoke-on-Trent, which could make your outbound or inbound drive difficult if you’re on/near a major highway. Also, the luncheon period between 14:00-16:00 has seen an increase in slowdowns on city streets which should not be surprising. Expect the morning rush to be a bit of a crush getting out of the city, so avoid major thoroughfares between 07:00 and 09:00 if possible. The summer season is also particularly busy with cycles and visiting canal boats, which can further complicate traffic patterns.
  • Book your car hire in Stoke-on-Trent at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Stoke-on-Trent are around 61% cheaper than other car types, on average

5.2 Fair

Oct 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Good van - what we needed

Cons:

I originally booked a van to find out in small print it wasn't what I though. After ringing I booked another bigger one, the price told on the phone to me was incorrect, no new emails sent through- poor communication. Upon arrival had to pay a deposit of £200 which wasn't told to us so had to use over draft, will stick to afford in future.

Pros:

Had a phone call the following day to ask if everything was ok with the Car provided Was given a 10% Discount card for my next booking 2nd time i've had this with Enterprise

Cons:

Always have to take out the extra Insurance if not taken and have an accident there is a one thousand pound payment. I know this is best for me but would like when booking to have an option to take this so it is very clear what you will be paying for the Rental duration and not find out on the day i arrive.
