KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Christchurch

  • A car hire in Christchurch provides you with more flexibility compared to other methods of transport, such as buses or trains. The benefits of a hire car means you can travel to your destination directly, without having to adhere to the timetables that are in place for public transport. For instance, you can drive to Bransgore in around 13min, which is a journey that takes in excess of 30min by bus.
  • Bournemouth Airport (BOH) is one of the most convenient airports near to Christchurch to get a hire car from, as it’s located only about 9.7 km (6 miles) away. After you have landed, gone through border control and collected your baggage, you will be able to find a range of car hire companies. For example, Hertz is located conveniently inside the airport Arrivals Hall. Once you arrive at the branch, you will need to show your identification and complete the required documentation before the staff member at the Christchurch car hire provider will give you the keys to your vehicle.
  • Using a car hire in Christchurch, you will see that it’s a popular location for tourists, especially during the peak season when crowds flock to the nearby beaches. If you are driving through the centre of the town, you must keep an eye out for pedestrians crossing the road in areas that are not designated pedestrian crossings. This is common as jaywalking is not illegal in England. It’s also important that you regularly consult your mirrors, as cycling is a popular sport in Dorset.
  • When driving a Christchurch hire car, you’ll see that the traffic can get very busy during the summer months. Not only this, but traffic will increase during the daily rush hour too, when drivers commute to work in nearby cities like Bournemouth and Southampton. The timing of rush hour can vary from day-to-day, but the core hours are around 8:00 to 9:00 and 17:00 to 18:00. For those that prefer to drive on quieter roads, you should consider driving during late morning and early afternoon instead. One road that is particularly busy is the A35, which connects the town to Bournemouth. For a less congested route, try driving on the B3059.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Christchurch?

    If you’re looking for cheap car hire in Christchurch, you should consider a compact vehicle as it will make driving on narrow roads easier. In addition to this, you will also benefit from being able to park in tighter parking spaces. For those that want to experience driving in the English countryside, you should look for a vehicle such as an SUV, as these offer enhanced handling on winding roads and more traction on hills.

  • What’s the speed limit in Christchurch?

    It’s important to follow the speed limits, or you might be stopped by the police. Adhering to the speed limits also reduces the risk of an accident. In Christchurch and other urban areas, the top speed you can do is 30 mph. Some areas might also reduce the speed limit to 20 mph, especially around schools and hospitals. On rural roads that aren’t motorways, the maximum speed is about 60 mph, whereas on dual carriageways and motorways you must not exceed 70 mph.

  • Where are the best places to park in Christchurch?

    There are lots of places for you to park in Christchurch, which only adds to the convenience of getting a hire car. For instance, you can park at Saxon Square Car Park on Millhams St for about £1 per hour. Alternatively, if you want to be even closer to the town centre, you can go to Wick Lane Car Park, which is around £1 per hour or £6 for 12 hours. Closer to the River Stour, you can park at Mayors Mead Car Park. This costs approximately £1 per hour too.

Pros:

Nice 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.

Cons:

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.
