Traffic Information

Traffic Information

When you rent a car at Manchester Airport you can make your way into the city center via the M56 and the A5103. This route is around 9 miles and takes 25 minutes. When this gets busy during peak hours, the A56 provides an alternative and is only slightly longer at 11 miles and 30 minutes. Trafford Park is only a 20 minute drive from the city center and just over 4 miles away by either the A56 or Ordsall Lane.
Manchester is ringed by the M60. This provides access to Liverpool to the west and Leeds to the east. There is also an Inner Ring Road, which serves most of the districts in the city. The main north to south route is the M6, which runs all the way from Scotland in the north towards London on the south. The only toll road in the area is the M6 toll, which starts around 70 miles south of Manchester at Cannock. It is a good alternative to the M6 if traveling south at peak times. There are lots of multi-story car parks around Manchester and some cheaper open air ones in the city center at Piccadilly.
Sixt Tips

Sixt Tips

Manchester is a cosmopolitan city and the center of England's industrial northwest. It was one of the world's earliest industrial cities as a result of the textile industry. Many of these industrial buildings can still be seen, now converted to trendy offices and apartment buildings, especially in the Salford area. With two of the UK's largest universities, the city has a buzzing nightlife and this has been enhanced in recent years by the creation of MediaCityUK at Salford Quays, which brought the BBC and ITV media networks to the city. The city's Chinatown runs between Faulkner Street and George Street and has lots of restaurants and karaoke bars. The Rusholme district houses Manchester's Curry Mile and is the place to go for a good curry. The Village at Canal Street is the center of the city's LGBT community and is also known as Gay Village. The city is also famous for its soccer teams and there are regular stadium tours at Manchester United's Old Trafford and Manchester City's Etihad Stadium.

Many thanks to Irfan, he gave us great advice and service. My son and I had a lot of fun with the car. The great thing about the Sixt station is that you can park the car the evening before and then you save the 30 pounds! parking fees in the Manchester area. The station is a great alternative to the airport station, simply stress-free. I'm still waiting for my deposit to be returned, but I think that will happen at the end of the week. So, we recommend this station for your trips. Thank you again and again. Cheers Daniel and Carsten

After cancelling with a different car hire company after reading so many negative reviews, I booked with Sixt Manchester Picadilly. The check in service was friendly and helpful, a real personal service. The car was clean and good condition and I had an issue free 6 days rental. Returning was straightforward, parking in a designated bay in the car park opposite the Sixt office. A quick courtesy check that all was OK with my rental, and then I was on my way. The service was excellent and location convenient l, so this will now be my goto location for car rental.
