Top Tips

  • Rush hour in Cardiff is generally from 8:00am to 9:00am and 5:00pm to 6:00pm. However, if you are leaving the city for an early day trip, you will find that most of the traffic is going the other way and you may not be affected.
  • Parking in the city centre is expensive. Leaving your car on the edge of town can be a far cheaper alternative.
  • When approaching a roundabout, always give priority to traffic approaching from the right, unless otherwise indicated.

Which companies offer best value in Cardiff?

We pride ourselves on being impartial, that’s why we show ratings and reviews submitted by previous customers next to each listing. Their feedback will help you see how each supplier compares in terms of customer satisfaction and value for money, assisting your decision when you are thinking about which company to rent with. We also recommend booking a car with a full-to-full fuel policy, as you will avoid hidden fuel costs providing you drop off the car with a full tank.
