Newcastle upon Tyne is one of the UK's most iconic cities and is the cultural heart of northeastern England. Its central Grainger Town historic precinct, an 11th century keep and pulsating nightlife venues such as The Gate are among major draws. The surrounding region offers additional attractions most easily reached with a rental car. The cheapest rates can be quickly sourced when you compare car hire online.
Newcastle International Airport, seven miles north of Grainger Town, and the city railway station are the primary gateways to the city. Newcastle itself has a good public transport network with Metro and city trains, and buses. Car hire in Newcastle gives more freedom when exploring the outer edges of the city and for travelling to North Sea beaches and Northumberland National Park.
Newcastle is at the heart of regional tourism draws and a self-drive allows visitors to venture beyond the city limits. Hadrian's Wall, the Scottish border and even Harrogate are within convenient driving distance. Enterprise, National and Hertz are among reputable global suppliers with service depots in the city.
Grainger Town and the Quayside are easily explored on foot but crossing the River Tyne to Gateshead or going north is best done with your own vehicle. Newcastle's streets are reasonably well signposted. Once outside the city limits, A-class roads and the A1M provide quick routes to most regional sites and destinations.
Heading east on the A1058 is the route for beaches at Whitley Bay. South Shields is on the opposite bank of the River Tyne and taking one of the bridges that cross it will lead visitors to some stunning beaches and Ocean Beach Pleasure Park. Historic Durham and its fabulous Norman castle and cathedral are 15 miles south on the A1M with car rental in Newcastle.
Due to its diverse attractions and proximity to beaches and historic sights, Newcastle is a perennial favourite for mini-breaks. It is at its busiest during the peak holiday months of July and August when temperatures are around 18°C to 20°C. It is probably better to visit in May, June or September when temperatures are only slightly cooler and there are fewer other tourists.

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.
