Car hire

The countryside surrounding York is stunning. With the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors and coast all a short drive away you may want to explore beyond the city walls. I’ve put together a list of car hire companies in York and included a few links to online car booking websites which may help you save time and money.

There are several car hire comparison sites which allow pick up from local offices and often offer better rates than going to the car hire company direct. Both and are car rental comparison sites that offer excellent deals on car hire in York.

York car hire companies by location:

  • If you are arriving by train then Europcar and Hertz are both located at the railway station.
  • Avis and Enterprise are both on the inner ring road a short taxi ride (or long walk) from the station. If you are travelling with children or a lot of luggage it would not be advisable to walk from the station to either of these.
  • Budget is located on Leeman Road and Minster Self Drive on Micklegate, again it would be perfectly possible to walk to either of these if you were travelling light.
