Wales. Stunning mountain scenery, amazing castles, a rugged coastline interspersed with sandy soft beaches, male voice choirs, heritage and modern and ancient history. This small nation, part of the British Isles, packs a huge punch to attract the many tourists who explore the country each year using a cheap car hire deal.

Just give us a reason not to go. The variety of things to see and do make this country a real treat for weekend breaks or longer holidays...

However you arrive in the country, picking up a cheap car hire deal is easy. With pick-up points at Cardiff Airport (CWL), as well as many mainline rail stations, ports, cities and towns, you’ll be on the road in no time at all. Use our search engine to the left to get the best prices by pre-booking your Welsh car rental.

Cardiff is the capital and home to its castle, a regenerated city centre and docks area, the Millennium Stadium and a vibrant nightlife catering for everything from fine dining to clubbing. Other important centres to visit are Swansea, Newport and Rhondda in the south, Aberystwyth in the centre, and Wrexham, Colwyn Bay and Bangor.

These busy places have plenty to see and do of their own, but by getting in your car you’ll be soon be out of the towns and into some of the most impressive scenery in the UK. Drive to stunning view points and enjoy walks, mountain biking and hikes across moors, mountain ranges and around beautiful unspoiled lakes.

Celtic history abounds and you’ll even find dual language signage everywhere as the nation enjoys a renaissance in the Welsh language. More modern traditions abound in places like the Welsh valleys, for years steeped in mining and heavy industry and now more famous for industrial museums and male voice choirs. And if music is your thing, remember that Wales is the home of superstars such as Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey and the Stereophonics.

Food standards are high with lots of local produce, including Welsh lamb, cheese, and baked goods such as the famous Bara Brith cake.
