Barrow Guide

The town of Barrow, formally known as Barrow-in-Furness, is located at the end of northeast England's Furness peninsula. Barrow's convenient seaside location no more than two or three hours away from nine major cities in the United Kingdom by car rental in Barrow makes it an ideal base for a holiday in northern England and southern Scotland.

Cheap car hire in Barrow is highly recommended to explore its surrounding area as the nearest major airport, Blackpool International Airport, is quite a distance away and other public transportation options are hard to find. Car rental in Barrow, however, is much easier to locate at the town's two Avis branches and wide variety of other car hire companies.

Although Barrow is better known as a working class town than a tourist destination, the town is working hard to change its reputation. Barrow's waterfront is in the middle of a major renovation and its Dock Museum describing Barrow's proud shipbuilding history is already quite popular.

Other recommended Barrow attractions include the Hollywood Park leisure facility, green Barrow Park, many golf courses, and a wide variety of shopping options at its indoor market and Portland Walk Shopping Centre. Furness Abbey, formerly England's second richest cisterian abbey, is also worth visiting.

The famous holiday destination of the Lake District, the border with Scotland, the resort of Blackpool, and the city of Manchester are just a few of the popular destinations less than three hours away by car hire in Barrow.

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 Carrentals.co.uk 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?
