Location information for Preston

Preston is an ideal holiday destination for people looking to relax and unwind amidst the charming countryside. The city is located in the English county of Lancashire along the River Ribble. The city exudes an interesting countryside charm, featuring a colourful culture and heritage that tourists can experience through its many sights and attractions. Travellers usually arrange for a cheap car hire in Preston so they can easily get around the city although walking can also turn out to be a worthwhile travel option.

One of the most interesting things about Preston is that it features a number of landmarks that offer travellers a glimpse of its rich culture and history. The spire of St. Walburges, a 95-metre high structure dominates the city's skyline. It was built in 1854 according to the design of Joseph Hanson, a celebrated architect from the Victorian era. Travellers can also take their car rental through other known landmarks around the city including the old public parks such of Avenham and Miller on the northern bank of the river.

As the cultural centre of Lancashire, the city of Preston features a number of museums and art galleries that showcase the impressive heritage of the county. The Harris Museum & Gallery, which is housed in a Greek revival building, features some of the finest collections of sculpture, art and ceramics in the city.

Outside the museum, travellers will find the Flag Market where they can immerse into the local culture through the many outdoor entertainment options available in the area. The market regularly hosts annual events in Preston including the Historical Fayre, the Criers Competition and summer street theatre performances. For a dose of retail therapy, tourists can head for the redeveloped docklands and marina where they can find a number of quaint shops and food outlets.

Arranging for a cheap car hire in Preston is well worth the trouble considering that the outskirts of the city are just as interesting as the attractions inside it. A drive to the Ribble Valley, for instance, will treat tourists to a relaxing day trip to the upland moors and beautiful Forest of Bowland as well as to the Beacon Fell Country Park.

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).
