Wales Car Rental

Discover Car Hire in Wales

Wales is a country rich in natural beauty and history. Its living Celtic culture is unique and you can still hear Welsh spoken throughout much of the country. Magic and folklore are central to Wales and you can see this on their green and white flag with an emblazoned red dragon.

There are over 600 castles in Wales, 100 of which are still standing! The others are mostly in ruins or have had nature reclaim them. The Welsh are also crazy about their sport and follow their rugby team passionately - often having light banter with their other United Kingdom neighbours.

Wales is just one part of the United Kingdom - go further and drive the rugged charm of Scotland, the lush hills of Northern Ireland or the deep history of England.
