Traffic Information

Traffic Information

Bristol Airport is a major hub for some budget airlines with flights arriving daily from across Europe and the Atlantic. It is located 8 miles outside the city centre with regular Flyer shuttle bus services that bring you into town to collect your car hire in Bristol. Bristol Temple Meads Train Station and the Marlborough Street Coach Station are both centrally located and within easy distance of our city branch. Train and coach routes have links to most major cities across the UK.

The centre of Bristol follows a large one-way city loop which can be confusing at times for both visitors and new residents. Like many large cities, Bristol becomes congested at peak hours during which times a couple of routes into the city operate a pool lane for vehicles with more than one occupant. Please ask for further information on this when you collect your car. Short-term street parking is the cheapest option, especially in the city centre but places are limited and well-monitored. Avoid a parking fine by using the multi-storey and underground parking that is widely available across the city.

Sixt Tip: Small Festivals and Art in Bristol

Sixt Tip: Small Festivals and Art in Bristol

Bristol is the unofficial capital of the West Country of England and probably host to more annual festivals than anywhere else in the UK. These include the impressive sight of the International Balloon Fiesta which takes place every August. If you are lucky enough to be in town drive four miles south of the River Avon to the country estate of Ashton Court and watch the colourful mass launch. Bristol is also the birthplace of the internationally famous graffiti artist, Banksy. Take in the works of this secretive and elusive artist with guided or self-guided walking tours.

Distances to Bath

Distances to Bath

Bath

When you have finished enjoying the sights and nightlife of Bristol your rental vehicle means that nearby towns, beautiful countryside and family seaside resorts are all within easy reach. The ancient city of Bath is just a short drive away. Here any visit should centre on the Roman Spa Baths, Bath Abbey and the Georgian architectural splendours of the Royal Crescent and the Assembly Rooms which houses a Fashion Museum. You will find references to one of Englands best loved authors, Jane Austen, throughout the city.

Weston-Super-Mare

Families can enjoy the fun of seaside attractions and mile after mile of sandy beach, especially when the tide is out, at the seaside resort of Weston-Super-Mare in the Bristol Channel. A unique attraction in Weston is Birnbeck Pier, Britain's only pier that ends on an island.

Chepstow

If you want to country hop into Wales you can just take a drive over the Severn Bridge to the pretty town of Chepstow. Children and history lovers will enjoy a tour of the Norman Chepstow Castle, while the town is the gateway to beautiful walking and cycling routes in the Lower Wye Valley. Carry on driving for a few miles and call into the ruins of Tintern Abbey. This Cistercian monastery also dates from the Norman period.

 

Business Destinations

Business Destinations

Bristol is a large university town and a vibrant place of business. Although tourism is one of the citys biggest earners, over 90 percent of city businesses are small enterprises employing fewer than 50 people. Set in 59 acres the Bristol & Bath Science Park is a contemporary purpose-built environment providing space for the development of science and technology businesses.

Summer in Bristol

Bristol is an easy-going fun university city surrounded in greenery and epic spots, such as their famous suspensions bridge, in summer it’s a special time to visit. With everyone out enjoying the sun there are many spots to hangout and enjoy the warmer weather. Brandon Hill offers amazing views of the city and it even has some trails taking you through the tree lines as well as free Tai Chi lessons at the weekend. Ashton Court Estate is as historic as it is beautiful and is a great spot for a picnic. There are also quite a few rooftop bars for lazy summer drinks such as the White Lion Bar and Bambalan. Every year residents look forward to the annual hot air balloon festival. With so much greenery and sites around the city a rental car could be essential.
