2.0 Mediocre21 Dec 2016
Car ReviewPros: The car was relatively easy to drive. Clean.Cons: Hired the car to drive from Canterbury to Truro (East of England to West) 6 hours 40mins drive. NO Sat Nav (inbuilt sat nav but was not working) NO Radio!! Arrgggh!! Dont mind if the Sat Nav wasn't working. But nothing to listen to! Can drive someone insane. Then driving this over a period of 4 days around Truro and then makig the argious back to Crawley (5 hours) All in all. Very painful experience.
10.0 Excellent2 Aug 2016
Pros: Smooth registration that was quick and informative. The education about Dartford Crossing toll procedures was a life saver! The car was immaculate and got fantastic gas mileage! Strongly advise American drivers to get as small a car as possible if you're going to spend any time on rural roads! Returning the vehicle was equally smooth and efficient! Much easier driving from Canterbury than London!

Top tips for renting a car in Ashford

  • The town of Ashford, Kent, is located in arguably one of the most scenic counties in England. However, its limited public transport network creates a niche that car hire in Ashford, Kent, can fully exploit along streets within town precincts as well as on roads stretching across the entire county and miles beyond. The stretch of coastline from Folkestone (17 miles via the A20) through Dover (8 miles via B2011) onto Margate (22 miles on the A256) winds along the narrowest point of the English Channel and makes for a promising road trip.
  • If travelling to London Gatwick Airport (LGW), you can collect your car hire in Ashford, Kent, from one of the international providers like Sixt, Budget and Enterprise with offices at its Car Hire Centre. If you arrive at the South Terminal, you should make your way from domestic arrivals and follow directions to catch the shuttle to the North Tower. Your destination is on the Ground Floor next to the Tourist Office. North Tower arrivals will find the hire car area to the immediate left of the Arrivals Hall.
  • The proximity of the M20 to the town and its A2042 tributary that funnels traffic in and out of the downtown area are key for heavy traffic along certain stretches during the morning and evening rush hours. The stretch of A492 where it interchanges with the busier A28 near the Repton Park North district is another major area for traffic congestion. Expect significant foot and cycle traffic around school districts, on high streets as well as near tourist attractions and places of interest.
  • The morning rush period in Ashford, Kent, is usually defined from 07:00 to 09:00, and the worst time for evening traffic congestion is between 18:00 and 20:30. When travelling outbound or inbound on major roadways during these hours, add a bit of extra time to your schedule to account for any delays you might encounter. Also, be aware that the afternoon hours between 13:00 and 15:00 can be busy with shoppers and lunchtime traffic both vehicular and pedestrian.
