Location information for Bolton

Located in northwest England, Bolton is a town just outside of Manchester. Bolton is a great base from which to explore the Greater Manchester area as well as Lancashire. This region is full of natural beauty and there are many National Trust forests to explore as well as historic towns and villages. Compare car hire prices prior to arrival for the best rates on offer.



Bolton itself has no airport of its own so air travellers will have to use the airport in Manchester about 25kms south of Bolton. The town can be reached either by train or by car. Out in the countryside, public transportation is limited to buses, making car hire in Bolton a very convenient option.

Car Hire Bolton

Vehicles can be rented right at Manchester Airport, where Europcar has a counter in the Arrivals Terminal. Travellers also have the option to pick up their rental in Bolton itself. There are several global rental firms both in the town centre and the main railway station including Europcar, Enterprise and Avis.


Bolton is well-connected to the British motorway network. The closest motorways are the M-61 and M-66. The closet secondary road is the A58 and A676, which form a ring around the town. Public transportation in Bolton is limited to buses so self-driving is a great option for those who want to explore the areas surrounding Bolton.

With a car rental in Bolton it is easy to explore the countryside surrounding the town. A great day out is the Turton Tower, a classic medieval tower and manor. A nice day among nature can be enjoyed at the reservoir in Bradshaw Brook. There are many quaint towns to explore in the area as well, such as Edgworth and Affetside.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
