10.0 Excellent18 Jul 2017
Excellent and really enjoyed the automatic Ford Focus fun to driveA little confusing as to where they were at Southampton airport
3.6 Mediocre30 Apr 2017
Poor info and off airport rentalThe lady that helped us was very patient and polite. She must meditate and listen to relaxing music in her free time to be able to cope with all the angry customers she gets.Off airport. Compulsary insurance which costs a fortune. From the look of it the cars that were provided had quite some damage already so maintanance/turnover is questionable. Uber was a lot more afordable in our case. We ended up going back to the airport and taking a taxi.

Car hire excess insurance in Eastleigh

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Eastleigh car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Eastleigh.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Eastleigh car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Eastleigh

  • Eastleigh is a town situated in the Hampshire countryside just north of Southampton. Due to its size there is limited public transportation available, which creates the perfect situation for car hire in Eastleigh. With your own vehicle, you won’t have to bother with inconvenient timetables or inflexible schedules. Plus, the presence of two national motorways in this area makes driving in and out of the town relatively easy. The seaside town of Brighton lies some 64 miles east via the M27, while London is about 76 miles north along the M3.
  • The drive from Southampton Airport is a mere 2 miles by car from downtown Eastleigh, making this the ideal location for your flight to arrive and the most convenient place to pick up car hire in Eastleigh. A good selection of providers including local firms (Easirent or Sunnycars) and international companies (Enterprise and Europcar) are on hand to serve you. The car hire centre at the airport is located across the street from the main terminal exit.
  • Eastleigh is a small town and while rush hour congestion may exist during the peak morning and evening hours, it should be light to moderate compared to other places. That said, the M3 motorway running through the town is the key conduit for inbound and outbound traffic, and mostly likely to experience reduced flow. The A335 runs through the administrative and retail heart of the town and is also a key area for tie-ups during these periods. You should expect moderate pedestrian and cycle traffic on roads and streets with a corresponding increase during the summer from June to August.
  • Morning rush hours last from about 07:00 to 08:30, while the evening peak hours are from about 18:00 to 20:00. The A335 roundabout near the Eastleigh Borough Council building will be busy during the morning hours, while the M3/Leigh Road exchange will be active during both periods. Expect intermittent slow-downs along the A335 leading to/from Southampton Airport at various times, while pedestrian traffic will be highest in the town centre from 13:00 to 15:00 due to retail activity.
