It's no wonder why Bath has been dubbed one of the prettiest towns in Britain. You'll agree with just one look! Planning a holiday to Bath this year? The easiest way to reach Bath is via flights to Bristol, only a 20 mile drive from Bath. While it's possible to catch a taxi or the train to Bath, the easiest is to just book the cheapest car hire at the airport. At the airport you can have your pick from Europcar, National, Hertz, Avis, Budget or Enterprise.
Apart from a car hire Bristol airport, you can also find a car hire Bath city too! Bath has all the major international car rental companies located, for the most part, along the river. Hertz, H G Self Drive, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Europcar, Alamo and National are just a few. For a car hire Bath train station, Indigo Car & Van Hire has your back covered.
It's quite easy to get lost in Bath thanks to the complicated one-way street system in the city centre. Expect car parks to fill up quickly on Saturdays… locals love to shop! It's recommended to rather choose a car park located on the outskirts of the city centre and either walk in or catch a bus to get your around. On-street parking is available but not too convenient with a 2 hour max limit city-wide. The major car parks in the city centre are Manvers Street, Walcot Street and there's also one on Charlotte Street. Expect to dish out £3/hour, or £1.60/30 minutes on-street. There is free parking on Sundays as well as weekdays between 7:00pm-8:00am.
Not many hotels in Bath have parking available but some do and they're worth checking out if you have a cheap car rental in Bath. Redcar Hotel for example, and Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel have parking facilities available to all guests.
