KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Stratford-upon-Avon

  • Explore this medieval market town and the beautiful countryside surrounding it with car hire in Stratford-upon-Avon. The benefit of having a Stratford-upon-Avon hire car is that you don’t have to plan your day around public transport, so you’re free to visit the sights when you want to. Check out Shakespeare’s Birthplace, the building where the famous English writer was born, before taking your Stratford-upon-Avon car hire to Hidcote, a National Trust garden about 10 miles away. Only around an 18min car journey, you’ll reach this historical landmark much quicker by car than by alternative modes of transport such as a bus.
  • About a 30min drive from the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon is Birmingham Airport (BHX), which is the closest international airport to the market town. Here you will find many car hire companies, such as Europcar, Hertz and Avis, prominently located so that you can continue your onward journey with ease. In the arrivals hall, once you have collected your baggage, follow the signs to the car hire branches that are located in the terminal building. There is only one terminal at this airport, so you don't have to worry about travelling between terminals to pick up your hire car.
  • Stratford-upon-Avon is a small town in Warwickshire, which is popular with tourists throughout the year due to it being the birthplace of the famous writer, William Shakespeare. You can expect roads to be pretty busy in the centre due to Stratford-upon-Avon's popularity. Pedestrians may also cross in non-designated areas throughout the town, so beware of tourists stepping out suddenly. The small town is also a popular rest point for cyclists who have been out for a spin in the countryside, so, keep an eye out for those on bikes, especially when turning in the town centre, as it can often get very busy.
  • Being a small town close to a major city, a lot of locals commute to and from Birmingham for work. You can therefore expect it to be busier on the roads during rush hour, which is from 08:00 to 09:00 and 17:00 to 18:00. If possible, avoid travelling in the town during these times so that you can avoid getting caught up in traffic. On weekends, it will also be busy with those interested in seeing Shakespeare’s Birthplace flocking from all over the UK. Bridge Foot can get particularly busy during rush hour and on weekends, so avoid driving on this road if possible, as you may get stuck in traffic.
  • Book your rental car in Stratford-upon-Avon at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Stratford-upon-Avon are around 65% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Stratford-upon-Avon

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Stratford-upon-Avon?

    A small car will be more than sufficient to explore Stratford-upon-Avon, as it will help navigate the compact roads. Should you want to travel into the Warwickshire countryside then a larger car, like an SUV, would be good, as it will help you handle the roads better.

  • What’s the speed limit in Stratford-upon-Avon?

Both of these car parks are close to the city centre, so you have easy access to all the major landmarks.

Pros:

Staff were VERY friendly & helpful. Not sure where to mention this. I know that I have a very sensitive sense of smell, but w/ 3 young men in the office it was a little overwhelming. It was also a very warm day which can make matters worse but I think a little attention needs to be paid to this.

Cons:

The one issue that arose was when I called for initial pick-up they said I should have requested it in advance (which if it is a new policy is fine, but I was not aware from neither booking process nor the reminder of the rental received a couple days in advance
