car rental sheffield

Hi, we're planning a quick trip see some more of Yorkshire after a visit to Sheffield doc fest. Problem is we want to rent a car on Sunday morning. We're planning on drifing to Haworth then towards Harrowgate for an overnight. Then to York for the day Monday and return to London Monday night. Would it make sense to drop the car if we can at York or return to Sheffield. So far no luck find a place to rent in Sheffield on Sunday. Alternate plan -- take train to York Sunday morning, spend the day there, pick up car in York and Haworth on Monday, then drive to Sheffield from Haworth and drop car in Sheffiled. Any advice on logistics welcome. Been caught in Bradford triangle before and would love to avoid that fate again. Thanks

If all else fails, you'll be able to hire a car at the airport - near Doncaster - for sure

The airport looks like your best bet....


If you use Avis - I happen to know they have a convenient location in York (used it last month) so you could possibly pick up at the RHA, drop off in York and then train back to London?

Not sure what the costs involved in using 2 separate locations are - but it may be worth a look?

The venue for the documentary festival - The Showroom - is right opposite the railway station. So you might find that popping across the road for a train to York might be the easiest option. You may know that trains to London are also easy from Sheffield or York.

Doncaster Airport is a long way from Sheffield City Centre and awkward by public transport. Try the usual people - Hertz, Avis, Europcar - by looking at their websites for a Sheffield or York pick up.

Thanks for the suggestions. Looks like the car rental places in York are also closed on Sunday, but I will post on the York forum to double check. If thats an option we'd take the train to York and rent there. I think we'd prefer to drop the car in York in any case and take the train from there to London rather than drive back to Sheffield. Otherwise we might have to pick up the car in Sheffield on Sat before noon and try to drop Monday morning in York.
