Location information for Gloucester

Gloucester is one of the UK's up-and-coming tourist spots. Famous for its Norman cathedral among other things, it has beautiful surroundings, with the pleasant towns and villages of the Cotswolds within easy reach by car. This is the perfect base for a relaxing country break.



Gloucester city centre is easy to explore on foot as attractions are reasonably close together. For links to surrounding areas there are bus services, but car rental in Gloucester is the most convenient way to get around. Trains link the city with other major UK cities such as London and Bristol, with nearby Gloucestershire Airport hosting flights to Jersey.

Car Hire Gloucester

Rental cars are easy to obtain in the city centre and at the airport and rail station, with many companies such as Europcar, Thrifty and Enterprise offering their services. To save time and get the best deal as well as the vehicle of their choice, visitors should compare car hire in advance.


Driving in Gloucester is convenient as the roads are well maintained, well signposted and linked with the M5. The stunning scenery of the Cotswolds is popular with tourists, so it can be difficult to get parking spaces in the city and traffic on minor roads can become congested during peak season. Traffic drives on the left.

Things To See and Do

The Cotswolds are a must-see for visitors to Gloucester. With hundreds of charming villages and towns as well as wildlife parks, it's a great place for families. For those interested in the past, within easy driving distance of the city lie the ruins of Great Witcombe Roman Villa and St Oswald's Priory. Car hire in Gloucester is the best way to take in these attractions.

Best Time To Visit

The best time to visit Gloucester is June, when a range of traditional events takes place. One of the most intriguing events is the annual cheese rolling competition at Cooper's Hill. There're also traditional woolsack races and the Chadlington Beer Festival. Temperatures during the summer months usually are in the low 20s (°C). October sees the highest rainfall, but there can be rain at any time of the year.

What most people want to know

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 is a worry-free label?

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.
