It will pay off to book a smaller model of car for your Basingstoke car hire needs, something you’ll soon appreciate once you enter the town’s traffic and find that it’s so much easier than it would be in something like a large saloon. Tailor your choices, and only hire as much car as you need, so to speak. If you’re visiting as a family, look for a compact MPV, and if you’re on your own or visiting with a friend, you’ll not need anything larger than a nippy little city car. This will also pay off for you in terms of fuel economy.
