Bristol Car Rental

The district of Bristol is served by a many major roads and nearby the city connects to the M32, M4 and M5 motorways, which travel to cities including Bath, Swindon, London and Cardiff in Wales, across the Severn Bridge.

Although the traffic in and out of the city can be particularly heavy during peak commuting hours (07:30 to 10:00 and 16:00 to 18:00), driving in central Bristol is fairly easy. Several roads are one-way only and part of Bristol's city centre is restricted to buses and taxis only, although this is always clearly sign posted.

Many tourists staying in Bristol choose to rent cars and these are the best method of transport when travelling outside of the city, to explore the surrounding countryside and nearby towns. There are plenty of parking garages and off-street parking areas available in Bristol, although some areas are restricted to residents only and parking permits are required. There are also park-and-ride services that operate at Portway, Tollgate and Ashton, where you can park your car on the outskirts of Bristol and travel into the centre by bus. These park-and-ride services are well sign posted from all routes into the city.
