Top tips for renting a car in Guildford

  • The picturesque town of Guildford is one of the oldest and most historically-preserved areas in the UK. Peppered with cathedrals, castles and heritage buildings that date back to Medieval times, car hire in Guildford is a must in order to take in some of the surrounding sights in comfort and style. Surrounded by lush countryside, take a scenic 15-minute drive to Newlands Corner, the highest vantage point in the area, with views spanning the Surrey Hills and beyond. A 2-hour drive with your Guildford car hire will see your enjoying the ancient Roman Baths of London, or stay closer to home with a leisurely 45-minute drive to award-winning Stoke Park, with arts, crafts, a skate park, a golf course and gorgeous surroundings.
  • With Guildford’s nearest airport being Heathrow (LHR) in London, about 17 miles away, if you are looking for car hire in Guildford, you will find a host of car hire companies conveniently located in the town centre as well as at one of the two train stations. Find car hire companies situated at the Heathrow main rental station. There is a shuttle bus service to the rental desks that leaves regularly from terminals 2, 3 and 4.
  • Guildford enjoys a dense population with plenty of central pedestrian bustle. When driving around the markets and town centre, be sure to look out for pedestrians enjoying the high street and the surrounding area. If you are new to the area, you will benefit from booking sat nav for navigation to assist with congestion on certain routes and find your way around the town with ease.
  • Although not considered a city, but rather a town, Guildford has experienced an economic boom with regards to business and tourism and attracts substantial traffic in the way of commuters every day. The main motorway heading into Guildford would be the A3, and during peak traffic times of approximately 7:00-9:00 in the mornings and 16:00-19:00 in the evenings, traffic may be slightly more congested than expected. Main roads that tend to get backed up are Stoke Road and the A25, both servicing the city centre.

  • If you are planning on staying around Guildford or the surrounding villages during your stay, then an economy or compact car will best suit the winding cobbled roads and residential areas. With streets lined with businesses, restaurants and retailers, parking on the street is often necessary, and a smaller car makes that so much easier. However, if you plan on enjoying the surrounding countryside of Surrey, a 4x4 or saloon car could definitely assist in creating fun-filled memories – particularly if you are in a larger group.

  • With schools, colleges and thousands of pedestrians walking the Guildford streets every day, residents have called for stricter control on speed limit and the council has moved the speed limit in certain central and residential areas from 30mph to 20mph. On the surrounding motorways the speed limit rises to 70mph. The town of Guildford is strictly covered by traffic camera surveillance from the motorways right into town, so ensure you stick to the speed limit and look for signage in areas that could suddenly change speed limits fast.

  • The average litre of fuel in Guildford costs £1.16. You can be sure to get fuelled up at a variety of petrol stations across the town, including several branches of commercial fuel providers such as Shell, Esso, BP and Sainsbury’s.

  • Parking in Guildford is, for the most part, rather affordable. There are several car parks that offer hourly or daily rates within walking distance of the town centre, such as Castle Car Park, Leapald Road, Bedford Road Multi-storey and several others. The average hourly rate is about £1. Night owls will be able to find streets in the city centre where parking is free between 20:00 and 8:00. If you fancy leaving your car for a longer period to meander the streets on foot, there are four main ‘park-and-ride’ car parks that offer excellent rates of approximately £2 per day.
