Top tips for renting a car in Poole

  • The seaport town of Poole possesses an excellent bus network connecting it to several of its neighbouring towns and villages. Despite this, the easy convenience and flexibility of a car offers greater freedom and comfort. If you are travelling in a large group, car hire in Poole is a more affordable means of transport that offers infinite range beyond a bus or train. The city of Exeter is about 79 miles west along the A35, while historic Plymouth lies a further 45 miles down the coast along the same road.
  • The most expedient location to hire a car in Poole is at Bournemouth Airport (BON), which is less than 12 miles from the town centre. The airport has an on-site Car Hire Centre, which is about 10 minutes’ walk from the exit at the Arrivals Hall, near Car Park 3.
  • The A350 is the primary artery for inbound and outbound traffic into Poole and is subject to serious vehicular congestion during morning and evening rush hours, as it passes through the town centre. The B3068 has a multi-lane roundabout (The George) outside a large retail zone (Kingland Road), and these areas are also prone to high levels of cycle and motor traffic during the weekday rush. Poole quayside district attracts high levels of pedestrian traffic during the summer season.
  • Between 07:00 and 08:30 (morning rush hours) and from 18:00–20:30 (evening rush), you should avoid the interchange where the A350 crosses the B3068 as well as the stretch of the A350 as it crosses the Poole Lifting Bridge, as these are obvious magnets for potential gridlock. The Kingsland Road retail zone is also a troublesome area during the afternoon hours between 13:00 and 15:00 when lunch/retail activity is at its peak.

  • Poole has a variety of public parking options, including on-street parking, surface and multi-storey car parks, as well as harbour/quayside parking zones. On-street parking is pay and display with a maximum limit of 4h and costs about £1 per hour between 08:00 and 22:00 Monday through Sunday.

Hours of operation and rates for multi-storey car parks in this area are around £1 per hour between 08:00-18:00 from Monday–Sunday and a flat rate of around £2 for the period from 18:00–08:00.
