You will find a great choice of cars — such as convertible sports cars, people carriers and luxury vehicles — from major suppliers like Thrifty, Europcar and Avis.

Search Rentalcars.com next time you are looking for cheap car rental in Bristol.

Top Tips

  • Bristol is one of the most congested cities in the UK, so avoid city centre driving if you can — especially during rush hour (07:30-09:30 and 16:30-18:30)
  • Many of the locals cycle, so watch out for bikes while driving.
  • To avoid the congestion, you can ‘Park and Ride’ into the centre for only the cost of the bus fare. This is usually cheaper than parking in the main part of Bristol.

Which companies offer best value in Bristol?

So you know exactly what you are getting for your money, we explain everything included in your rental upfront. You will find all the information you need next to each listing. We are impartial, so we show feedback left by previous customers — giving you an insight into how each company rates in terms of customer satisfaction and value for money. Don’t forget: if you book a car with a full-to-full fuel policy, you will avoid extra fuel charges (as long as you drop the car off with a full tank).

Day trips from Bristol

Cardiff: Just across the Severn Estuary is Cardiff, the vibrant capital city of Wales. Only an hour away by car, Cardiff is a friendly city that loves rugby, is full of history and has one of the best food scenes in the UK. Visit the Millennium Stadium, step back in time to the 19th century at Cardiff Castle, and enjoy some of the famed Welsh produce at Cardiff’s farmers market.

Bath: The Roman town of Bath is only a 45-minute drive from Bristol. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this ancient town shot to fame because of its hot springs and the Roman-built spa baths. Today, you can enjoy elegant Georgian architecture at the Royal Crescent, buy some unique art in Bath’s Artisan Quarter and try a Sally Lunn bun (a local delicacy, which is part bread and part cake). The city is still known for its spas, so take a dip and unwind in its famous waters.

Cheddar Gorge: Cheddar Gorge is the UK’s biggest gorge, home to caves that are full of stalactites and stalagmites. Located in Cheddar, the home of cheddar cheese, this natural landmark has been popular with walkers, cavers, climbers and tourists alike. The gorge has housed humans since prehistoric times, and you can learn about the discovery of Cheddar Man (the UK’s oldest complete skeleton) at the Museum of Prehistory.
