Visiting Bristol but sticking to a budget? There are many ways to explore this great city, and if you are looking at options for budget car hire, Bristol has many choices. Whether you’re travelling in a group, as a family, independently, or on a romantic weekend getaway, read on to discover what to see and how to see it when visiting Bristol.

How much does it cost to rent a car in Bristol?

When visiting Bristol, you might think it’s cheaper and easier to stick to public transport for getting around, but hiring a car might be more accessible than you think! You can hire a car, van, people carrier, or minibus for anything from one day to two weeks, with special deals on weekend rentals that work out cheaper per day and are ideal for exploring with little ones or those who can’t walk as far.
For eco and small car hire, Bristol has options from as low as £28 a day, including VAT and insurance! Hire for the day, a weekend, or a week, and explore everything the city has to offer.
Travelling with a family? Check out our van rental prices from as little as £38.80 a day for a small van and £51.60 for a medium van. A large family estate car is £60 for one day and only £124.80 for a whole weekend, so if you have teenagers and a lot of luggage, sightseeing Bristol won’t be a problem.
At Bristol Car & Van Hire, we have competitive rates for you to sightsee one of the top places in the country on a budget.

What are the advantages of car hire in Bristol?

See more and do more

There is plenty to see and do within the city centre of Bristol, like its floating harbour, gothic cathedral, and diverse food markets, but with car rental, Bristol offers so much more to see and do. Drive out to see the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge, look out over its historic seven hills, or go further afield out to places like The Mendip Hills or the Cotswolds, both listed as places of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Be on your own schedule

Public transport in Bristol is great for getting around, but you’re always working to someone else’s schedule. Be on your own timeframe with a rental car so you can come and go as you please, spending a little more time soaking in the sights at your will.

Freedom and safety

Having access to your own vehicle means you not only have your own time, but your own freedom. Listen to whatever music you want, stop for a break at a particularly beautiful lookout, and make a detour if you need. Being in your own vehicle is also a safer way to travel, and you and your friends and family can remain in your own bubble even while exploring Bristol.

Budget-friendly family travel

Travelling with a large group or family can get expensive when you’re a party of four, five, or even six, which is why you may be considering budget car hire. Bristol offers a wealth of great experiences, so save your pennies with budget rentals so you have more for sightseeing and a foodie experience!
