Location information for Carlisle

While Carlisle doesn't offer a whole holiday experience, it does serve as a great starting point for travels and backpacking trips along the Lake District. This English cathedral city is known for being a former fortress that protects the country from the north. Carlisle is located on the north end of the Lake District and if you want to conveniently experience everything that this region has to offer, you might want to arrange for cheap car hire in Carlisle as soon as you arrive.

Because the city itself is quite small, it is easy to get around town on foot. The attractions are actually within a short walking distance from one another so while touring the city centre, you might want to park your budget car rental elsewhere first. For your tour of the city, make sure to visit the Carlisle Cathedral. For a city this size, the cathedral is definitely an impressive sight. The structure was built in 1112 and its original form is still being maintained to this day.

After that, you want to head for another famous landmark in the city. The Carlisle Castle stands tall from its location in the city centre. It is maintained by the English Heritage and was built in 1093 by King William II. From then on, it has guarded the border against potential attacks from the north.

While you're in Carlisle, you shouldn't miss taking a walk along the city's part of what was once the Hadrian's Wall. You might also want to learn more about this wall by observing artefacts and exhibits from the Tullie House Museum.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
