3.6 Mediocre21 Jul 2019
Pros: Reasonably pricedCons: At pick up I was told there was no damage to the vehicle, but upon my inspection I found scratches and paint chips which I showed to the manager. The damage was then documented, but this raises concerns that lax oversight will lead to false damage claims for the renter. Scamming going on?

Top tips for hiring a car in Oxford

  • As a visitor to Oxford, renting a car means that you don't have to restrict your sightseeing to the city center. Although there are several options for public transport around the city, they can be expensive and fail to give you the same freedom as a car. There are plenty of places to be discovered across the city and beyond with a car, like the University Museum of Natural History and Bicester Village.
  • Excited to rent a car on your visit to Oxford? If you are landing at London Oxford Airport you will find only one car hire company based on-site. You will find its car hire office located in Building 34, opposite the Terminal entrance, which is a few meters away. You can also arrange a pick-up from other local off-site car hire companies.
  • Travelers new to the UK should remember to drive on the left. When you enter a divided highway or motorway, you must keep to the left-hand lane unless you’re passing. Roundabouts are very common on UK roads, especially in and around Oxford. The traffic will flow in a clockwise direction around roundabouts, so you must give way to traffic approaching from your right.
  • The morning rush hour in Oxford begins around 7:00 am until 10:00 am and again in the evening from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. On Sundays and bank holidays, traffic is much heavier on the roads. If possible, it’s best to avoid the M40 motorway, especially going towards London, on weekdays as it’s often congested at rush hour.

  • Book your car hire in Oxford at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • The price of petrol in the UK is double that of prices in the US; just remember that petrol in the UK is measured in liters rather than gallons. In Oxford, the average price of a liter of fuel is around £1.25 ($1.55), which is about $5.94 per gallon.

  • When it comes to parking in Oxford, you have many options. If you have the time, you can use the Park and Ride, which has many locations on the outskirts of Oxford. In the city center you can either use the on-street parking or the various parking lots. A well-located parking lot is Oxpens, next to Oxford Ice Rink, which costs around £3.00 ($3.72) per hour.
