Location information for Darlington

Darlington may not count as a complete travel destination but the town and its surrounding countryside are more than enough to make any visit worthwhile. If you're looking for a more laid-back holiday, this is the town for you. You'll have to arrange for car rental to get into Darlington as Teesside and Newcastle are the only international airports near the town. You can also take the train into town and from there, arrange for cheap car hire in Darlington to get around the countryside.

Darlington is known as the birthplace of the railway so you will find a number of historic sites and artefacts that manifest its rich heritage. Start your tour with a visit to Tees Cottage Pumping Station Museum which originally housed Darlington waterworks. It is now a water and steam museum run by volunteers. In a restored Victorian station by the original route of the Darlington and Stockton Railway, you will find the Darlington Railway Station and Museum. It features exhibits that tell a story of the town's past as the railway capital of the world.

Darlington is a university town so you will find entertainment options that cater to the younger crowd around the place. There are a number of pubs, bars and cafes mostly concentrated in the town centre. For a gastronomic treat, Darlington also has a lot of restaurants and food outlets that serve a diverse variety of international cuisines.

The town is interesting for its history but the countryside is probably Darlington's main charm.

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 HireCars.co.uk 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).
