KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Telford

  • Car hire in Telford offers you the opportunity to enjoy the medieval and industrial wonders of this historically rich West Midlands town. Take a short drive out to the volcanic hill of Wrekin and hike up for views as far as Manchester. Stay local with a mind-blowing visit to open-air museum Blist Hill Victorian Town and witness authentic Victorian-age living. If you fancy using your car hire for a longer spin, an hour’s drive will find you in the gorgeous town of Ludlow, where the original medieval Stokesay Castle stands proud as a complete manor to visit. The 15th-century ruins of Ludlow Castle are well worth a visit for history enthusiasts.
  • If you choose to arrive in Telford by air, you will arrive 34 miles away at Birmingham Airport (BHX). Here you can find Avis, Enterprise and Budget car hire just a short walk from the Arrivals terminal. Collect your vehicle at flexible hours and drop off with a mostly 24-hour service. If you are looking to hire closer to your Telford accommodation, there are numerous car hire companies in the centre of Telford to choose from, namely Hertz, Enterprise, Firefly and many others – ensuring you will be free to hit the road at your leisure.
  • The Telford road-building method was largely adopted for its innovation by many UK towns over the years, leaving the wide and well-maintained roads quite pleasant to drive on with your car rental. Central town streets are pedestrian-heavy but lack access for vehicles, meaning you will be free to drive without too much public congestion. It is always advisable to book a sat-nav with your car hire in Telford to assist with road congestion, roadworks and navigation if you are new to the area.
  • The predominant motorway that feeds into Telford is the M54 and traffic is generally well managed, with light congestion at the A464 turn-off. With the town using a roundabouts system in busier areas, Telford occasionally sees peak-hour congestion levels rise during the morning (7:00 to 9:00) and evening (16:00 to 19:00) rush hours. An area to avoid is the Whitchurch Drive and Bennetts Bank circle, as well as intersections leading off from the A442 dual carriageway into Telford.
  • Book your rental car in Telford at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Telford are around 73% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Booked a 7 seater last year and had the same model car again; good service and friendly staff

Cons:

Had to come back a day early as office not open on Sunday and Bank holiday Monday. Drop off / Pick up should be available 7 days a week in this day and age, especially for a service company.

KAYAK

Pros:

A comfortable, nimble, fast and economical car. Transported 4 of us 350 miles with ease.

Cons:

The sat nav in London was possibly the worst I've ever come across, it had obviously never been there before and hadn't a clue! Had lots of those terrible moments where we found ourselves driving in the opposite direction to where we should have been going. My memories of 30 years were much more effective.
