Location information for Gloucester

The city of Gloucester may not be the modern traveller's idea of a holiday destination but it does attract a lot of tourist each year because of its laid-back charm. It is one of those towns in the West County that you should spare a weekend for, particularly if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. A cheap car hire in Gloucester will come in handy during your stay as this will allow you to get to the surrounding countryside to make your trip more worthwhile.

The city centre is best explored on foot. Start your tour around the most popular landmarks in the city. Head for Southgate Street where you will find one for the most amazing action time clocks in the area. The structure was built during the Edwardian era. The Gloucester Cathedral has also become quite famous lately as it is one of the places where the Harry Potter movies where filmed.

Other interesting sites that you may want to visit include the Folk Museum and the City Museum and Art Gallery. This is where you will find out more about the city's interesting culture and history. You may also want to take your car rental to the village of Painswick where you will find the remnants of the city's beginnings as a thriving centre of wool trade.

After all that sightseeing, treat yourself to a dose of retail therapy and head for Eastgate Street where you will find most of the shopping centres and individual shops that sell practically every type of merchandise.

Once you've had your fill of the city, take your car hire in Gloucester and head for the countryside. Drive to the Cotswolds and its rolling hills or to the Forest of Dean and Malvern Hills.

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? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. 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).
