Porthcawl is a seaside resort on the south coast of Wales. To hire a car, if you have no transport yourself, will most likely be the best option for a holiday visit. The town is just a few miles off the M4, a motorway linked to a network of other major roads that criss-cross mainland UK, so access from other places is straightforward.
If you are flying into an airport, it is particularly convenient to arrange car rental in advance. This is something that Expedia could help you with, wherever your starting point might be.
Hiring a car allows not only a speedy journey to Porthcawl but also the opportunity to explore further afield, either en route or during your stay.
If you fancy a day away from the delights of the seaside, how about taking your hire car on a trip to Cardiff to see the castle or to spend a day shopping till you drop? Wales' capital city is only 40 minutes away along the M4.
South Wales has a history of coal mining. The fascinating South Wales Miners Museum is only 15 miles away, via the M4 and A4107. A little further on, you could visit the Big Pit, an interactive museum where you can take guided tours underground.
If you prefer the open air, then the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park is around 40 miles away up the Merthyr Valley.
Car rental will make your exploration of south Wales so much easier.
