Car hire in Chester

Though you don’t need a car to get around the compact city of Chester, there are pick-up places quite near the centre if you’re looking to explore a little further (perhaps you’d like to see more of the north west region: Liverpool, Manchester, Blackpool, The Lake District. Or, drive for five minutes from Chester and you cross the border into Wales).
