Introduction

Leeds is not on the top of many lists of cities to visit. Yet, it is a very attractive city, known for its extensive shopping possibilities, the nightlife and a successful mix of historic and modern architecture. Leeds is located in a beautiful region (Yorkshire Dales, Yorkshire Moors and the Peak District). The historic city of York is just a stone's throw away, easily accessible by rental car.

Population

The city has a population of almost half a million.

Location

Leeds is located in the north of England, east of the Pennine Hills and on the River Aire. Bradford lies just west of Leeds, Manchester is southwest of the city. The beautiful Peak District (part of which is a National Park) is located south of Leeds.

Economy

The local economy's development is comparable to Manchester's. Leeds used to be an industrial center but nowadays, it's one of the United Kingdom's foremost financial centers, after London. A quarter of the labor force works in financial services. Another quarter works in public administration or education (Leeds has two universities). Tourism is increasingly important for the city, especially after Leeds was awarded "The best English city to visit outside London", in 2005.

Airports

Leeds shares its airport with nearby Bradford. Hence, the airport's name Leeds Bradford International Airport, which lies eighteen kilometers northwest of the city. The airport is easily accessible by rental car: it is right next to the A660 (follow the signs for Yeadon and Otley).

Public Transport

The city has excellent public transport. One line (Free City Bus) is for free and connects the most important locations in the center of Leeds. This free service runs from half past six in the morning until half past seven at night, except for Sundays. Furthermore, there are ferry connections between Granary Wharf, Brewery Wharf and Clarence Dock.

Traffic and Parking

Leeds has a ring around the city center. This so-called City Centre Loop is one-way traffic. For visitors it can be somewhat confusing to navigate, although parking and tourist attractions are clearly indicated on signs. Finding a parking space for your rental car in the center can be difficult. A good alternative is Woodhouse Lane's big parking garage (above the A64 running through the center).

Hotels

Leeds has a good range of accommodation, although the budget category is somewhat underrepresented. Bed & Breakfasts are mostly located in the vicinity of the university on Woodsley Road. Furthermore, there is a wide choice of apartments, both for short and longer stays. The tourist office in the train station can assist you finding the right accommodation.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Hire 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? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
