What kind of rental car should I get for Swansea?
Swansea is major. You could chill out for a while in this place and hardly scratch the surface. If you’d like to soak up as much as you can in this metropolis, a rental car is a must. Bear in mind that driving around big cities often comes with tight streets and limited parking spaces. Don’t stress though, because a small car like a compact will make this much easier to navigate. If you want to venture out of the city and see the rocky coastlines that Swansea is renowned for, you’ll probably prefer a rental car with a little more power. A mid-size or full-size SUV will make that longer drive comfortable.

All you have to do is work out what suits you best, pack up the car, and start clocking up those miles.
