Pleasent and helpfulNice car, friendly service. After the problem with finding a car they allowed us an extra couple of days with the car and gave us a small discount.The company had kept us waiting two hours as the auto they'd had wasn't road worthy, and so we waited while they called other stores.

Top tips for hiring a car in Bournemouth

  • Car hire in Bournemouth offers you the big advantage of not having to rely on public transport or a taxi service to get around whether you’re on holiday or in the city on business. It’s more efficient and offers far more flexibility. When you’re in Bournemouth you can use this to your benefit to drive out to all the local Dorset attractions, like Bournemouth Beach for a start. There’s also The Village, more formally known as Westbourne, a shorter drive from the town centre. For Bronze Age history, drive a little further out to Hengistbury Visitor Centre.
  • The nearest airport servicing Bournemouth is Southampton Airport. You can book car hire in Bournemouth from any number of top international and UK companies through KAYAK, and simply collect your vehicle right there at the airport. You’ll find all their offices inside the main airport terminal, and the parking areas where you’ll collect your vehicle are within easy walking distance from there.
  • The roads in Bournemouth are quite free-flowing, so you’ll have to exercise quite a bit of caution on them if you’re not accustomed to this kind of traffic. Pay special attention when you’re on the A338, which is the main route that runs through southern England. Also keep an eye out for groups of cyclists on the smaller roads. During the school terms you’ll find a lot of school-crossing patrols, so drive cautiously in areas where the schools are situated. There are also other traffic-calming measures in place, so essentially this is a town where a lot of emphasis is placed on sedate driving.
  • The main rush hours to avoid are slightly different to many other cities in the UK, in that they are a bit earlier. The worst time of the year for rush-hour congestion is during April, tailing off into May and June. Fridays are the busiest days in general, with rush hour peaking between 15:00 and 16:00. So remember when you’re planning your schedule that you can save up to 2h of travel time by avoiding these hours.
