Whether you’re visiting Blackpool for all the fun of the fair, to take in a show, enjoy a few sunny days by the sea, try your luck at the casino or hit jackpot on one of its three piers, Expedia offers an easy way to hire a car in Blackpool during your stay.
Hiring a car in Blackpool places the delights and entertainment of nearby Sheffield, Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester within a short drive.
Of course, if city life holds less appeal than the great British countryside, then you may wish to rent a car in Blackpool and drive out to brush those cobwebs away on the Yorkshire Moors or scale the heights in the Peak District?

It’s just over an hour’s drive on the M61 to reach Manchester, 50 miles away.
The unofficial capital of the north is undoubtedly the prime engine behind the Northern Powerhouse economy. It’s far from all work, work, work, however. Manchester is a city that loves to let its hair down. Dive into its enticing swirl of hedonism and dine, drink and dance the night away.
Heading east from Blackpool the M62 will bring you into Leeds in about one hour and 45 minutes.
Leeds is one of the fastest growing cities in the UK, and the glitz and glamour of its regenerated centre brims with confidence.
Urban chic, futuristic skyscrapers, swanky glass–and–steel waterfront apartments and beautifully renovated Victorian shopping arcades urge you to make sure you’ve packed clothes that will allow you to dress to impress when you park up.
It’s a two–and–a–half-hour drive on the A57 to cover the 90 miles to Sheffield.
The urban renewal programme here continues to revitalise the city, yet there are still strong glimpses of the past to be enjoyed amongst the modern marvels.
The Millennium Gallery showcases metalwork and art from Sheffield’s past and from contemporary artists from across the globe. Adjoining it is the Winter Garden, a large glasshouse filled with as many plants from around the world as the next-door gallery has artworks. To explore Sheffield’s industrial heritage there’s Kelham Island Museum, and a short drive from the city lie the moorland and rocky ridges of the Peak District.
In your hire car it’s just an hour and 20–minute drive south on the M6 before the home of the mop top and the Kop await your pleasure.
It’s not all football and pop culture here, though. Liverpool has an impressive cultural heritage, with more listed buildings than anywhere in the UK outside London and a fine selection of venues, galleries and museums.
Head for Albert Dock – just west of the city centre – or get all trendy in the Ropewalks area – south of Hanover Street. And, of course, there are tours of Anfield and the opportunity to pay your respects to the Fab Four at the Cavern Quarter.
From a ferry across the Mersey to a chance to go a little mad in Madchester, there are so many options of places to visit when you hire a car in Blackpool.
But make sure you’re back in town for the switching on of the Illuminations in early September!
