Car hire FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car hires in Newcastle upon Tyne, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 18 April 2024.
  • What are the requirements to hire a car in Newcastle?

    If you're heading to England and planning on hiring a car in Newcastle, there are a couple of requirements you'll need to meet before being able to leave with your car. To start with, the minimum age for car hire in Newcastle and the rest of the UK is 23. You'll need to produce a valid driving licence, and if it's not a UK driving licence, you'll also need to have an International Driving Permit presented with it. Please bring a passport with a photo ID and proof of address, in case the car hire supplier requests one. If you're hiring a car with a UK licence, you'll be required to provide a DVLA code, which allows you to share your licence details with the supplier. If you're a non-UK resident, you may be asked to provide proof of previous travel dates to and from the UK. You'll also need the same credit card used for the online booking.

  • What are the rules for driving in Newcastle?

    Make sure you're aware of the road rules where you are before driving your car hire in Newcastle. Keep up to date with local motor vehicle departments to stay apprised of any sudden rule changes. You'll drive your cheap car hire in Newcastle on the left-hand side of the road, like the rest of the UK, and pass on the right-hand side. The legal blood alcohol limit when driving in the country is 0.08%, and breaking this law will result in hefty fines and possibly jail time. You will need to wear your seatbelt at all times, including all passengers. If your Newcastle car hire doesn't have a hands-free device, refrain from using your mobile phone, as it's prohibited and you'll be fined.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Newcastle?

    When choosing the right car hire in Newcastle, it's important to keep your needs in mind, as well as traffic congestion and the size of the roads. Some parts of Newcastle have narrow roads, so opting for a smaller, compact vehicle might be better suited. Smaller, lighter models are also usually more fuel efficient, which could help you if you're driving in the city and spending time in traffic. If you're planning on taking a long trip, consider hiring a car in Newcastle with cruise control to save on fuel costs. Rather than hiring an SUV for a family, consider a larger sedan or station wagon that's better suited to the roads.

  • Where are the best places to park in Newcastle?

    You'll be glad to know that Newcastle operates a variety of parking stations located within the CBD, and they offer different rates and time limits. Newcastle Mall Parking Station is one of these parking spaces; though, it's only open until 19:00 on weekdays and until 16:30 on weekends. The city also offers a park-and-ride service that gives you the chance to park your car hire at Mcdonald Jones Stadium and take the bus into the city.
