Top tips for renting a car in Basingstoke

  • Car hire in Basingstoke will give you the independence to move beyond the city and visit some of the tourist attractions in wider Hampshire. One such place is The Vyne, a very good example of a 16-th century Tudor mansion, situated just to the north of Basingstoke. There’s also the Whitchurch Silk Mill which is the oldest of its kind in the UK and still produces fine fabrics. You can use your hire car to avoid having to take the train, and it will also give you the ability to explore the countryside on your own time.
  • The city isn’t served by its own airport, so you’ll land at Southampton Airport on your way here. This is a fairly substantial airport, offering plenty of options for car hire in Basingstoke, including picking up your pre-booked vehicle. The major brands have a decent presence here, especially Enterprise, Hertz, Sixt, Europcar and Alamo. They’re found in different parts of the airport. Enterprise is the most direct one to get to, as it’s just to your right once you’ve collected your luggage, while the rest of them are outside the terminal building, just a couple of minutes’ walk across the Spitfire Loop road.
  • Traffic conditions in Basingstoke can get pretty congested, so this will be your main consideration when driving around the town. The city centre is often milling with pedestrians as well, so take a similar approach to driving as you would in a larger urban area. The quieter roads around the town are easy to get around, so you won’t have any traffic problems there, but drive cautiously and be on the lookout for local cyclists who can pop up seemingly out of nowhere on the country lanes.
  • You should take rush hour in Basingstoke pretty seriously, as this is when some of the roads can really jam up quite a bit. Particular hotspots for this are the M4 in both directions and the intersection where it joins the larger M3 at Junction 5. Also watch out in the area around Kingsclere roundabout on the main Newbury/Basingstoke road. The A339 ringway can also become clogged during rush hour, which typically peaks at roughly 8:00 in the mornings and again at around 16:00 in the afternoon.
  • Book your rental car in Basingstoke at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Basingstoke are around 44% cheaper than other car types, on average
