Bristol Car Rental Mini Guide

Bristol is the largest port in England and this west country city has developed a stature as the second city of the south. There is some stunning countryside in this part of England and hiring a rental car is the best way to see it. For instance you can drive to the nearby old Roman town of Bath which is made up almost exclusively of listed buildings and is splendidly perched on top of a hill. Rental Cars can be collected from Bristol Airport, various locations throughout Bristol or neighbouring cities if this works better for you. 

Bristol is near to South Wales and a trip along the M4 will take you over the new Severn Bridge, Cardiff is within 40 minutes of Bristol and the Welsh valleys are within an hour.  Alternatively drive on the M4 East and you have straightforward access to London.

It has its own airport, Bristol International, which is located about 10 kilometres south west of the city centre which connect to a host of European Cities and domestic flights such as Edinburgh.  It is little surprise therefore to know that Bristol features highly on many a UK guide.
