Car Hire in Llandudno?

Hello---Spending 3 nights at Great Orme Lighthouse in July, and exploring the area. We were planning on driving up from London, but think it might be better to take the train from Euston to Llandudno Junction and renting a car locally. Can you advise, please, on what car hire firms are in the area? Can we get to them from the train station? So looking forward to visiting beautiful North Wales again!

thanks---angel, islington

No you can't get them from the train station, it is quite small.

I think I would take the train to Llandudno Junction, then connect to Llandudno (which is a quick 10 minute service) then take a texi to the lighthouse. That way you have no concerns finding your location and so on.

Call / email Avis, who I believe has a branch in Colwyn Bay or Auto Europe ad arrange for them to deliver the car to the lighthouse. That is what I suggest to my guests and it always works really well, especially if you are late into the town, where things do close early (by comparison to the UK cities).

Note you won't get one delivered on a Sunday usually.

Hope this helps.

Enterprise car rental in Llandudno Junction would be a good idea.

Hubby takes the train from Euston on our frequent weekend breaks to LLandudno. The journey from Chester onwards follows the coast and he says the views are amazing. He says the holiday starts as soon as he gets on the train. At certain times of the day you can also upgrade to 1st class for a few pounds and get food, wine and drinks thrown in (that's what he does). He gets off at LLandudno junction and takes a taxi to our hotel There's usually plenty of taxis outside. I wouldn't bother changing trains to LLandudno itself as its far quicker by cab. Fare should be about £10.

Avis care hire in Llandudno Junction is just across the road from the station, Enterprise is a bit of a walk up a steep hill.

Try Aberconwy Car & Van Hire on 01492874669 or www.aberconwycarhire.co.uk, free collection and return to the station, open weekends and they'll meet you outside of working hours. They're only in Llandudno so will also deliver direct to your hotel too if you'd prefer. Excellent service last month when I used them.
