Expedia car hire in Bolton comes with No Hidden Fees
Why rent a car in Bolton?
Bolton is one of those northern English cities that greatly benefited from the industrial revolution, as it became a thriving hub for textile production. Although those days might be behind it now, the modern city has experienced plenty of regeneration in recent years, and it's a popular hub for those looking for a quick journey to the twin northern powerhouses of Liverpool and Manchester.
When you book a hire car in Bolton you’re gaining access to the great cities of northwest England and getting free rein to explore the fascinating history of a less-travelled corner of the nation. There’s plenty to do outside of the urban areas too, with Bradford and the wild landscapes of the Pennine Moors within easy reach.
How to get to and around Bolton?
Bolton sits close to the two major cities of Liverpool and Manchester, so you can fly into either of their airports. Manchester Airport is closer, about 25 minutes away via the M60, but Liverpool John Lennon Airport is also a good option. Simply head north on the M62 and you’ll be in Bolton in about 50 minutes.
What brands are available?
Book your rental car in Bolton and you’ll have several brands to choose from, with well-known and trusted names like Hertz, Firefly and Avis all available at competitive prices.
Must-sees within an easy drive of Bolton
Bolton is home to passionate community of football fans, who every week make the pilgrimage down to Bolton Wanderers’ stadium to catch the latest game. Although the club may have fallen on tough times recently, they still attract a lively crowd. If you’d like to experience an authentic English football experience away from the bright lights of the Premier League, you’d do well to follow them to Macron Stadium, about 20 minutes away to the west of the city.
If you’re in the mood for something historical, you’ll find there are plenty of opportunities to explore Bolton’s industrial past. Highlights include the Bolton Steam Museum in the city’s northwest, which offers a window into a period when the city was a world leader in locomotive production. Or, make the climb up to Rivington Pike on the Pennine Moors (about 30 minutes northwest of the city on Chorley Old Road). Reach the summit of the ancient tower on a clear day and enjoy views which take in the Cumbrian Fells, Blackpool Tower and Isle of Man.
