Top tips for renting a car in Salisbury

  • Arranging a car hire in Salisbury allows you to explore this medieval city with ease. Take in the astonishing cathedral in the historic centre. The building houses the original copy of the Magna Carta and has a huge 123m spire. A car hire in Salisbury also gives you the freedom and flexibility to venture further afield. Experience the mysterious prehistoric monument of Stonehenge, which can be reached in just under 20min by car. The New Forest National Park is only 40min away for those looking for fresh country air and exquisite walking trails. Further towards the coast, a day trip to Southampton or Bournemouth is possible - around 1h each way.
  • Bournemouth International Airport is just a 25-mile drive away from Salisbury and has two Hertz desks in the main terminal building. Choose from a versatile selection of vehicles, collect your Salisbury car hire and get your trip started. Southampton International Airport is another great option and is roughly the same distance away from Salisbury. Here, you can find the likes of Sixt, Europcar, Avis, and Enterprise, among others, also in the main terminal.
  • There are certain areas in the centre of Salisbury that are pedestrian-only and there are a lot of one-way systems and single-track roads. It may be helpful to add a sat-nav to your booking. The streets that are accessible by car can be quite narrow with a lot of people walking around, especially on weekends. Keep an eye out for pedestrians crossing the road at will (not necessarily at designated junctions). Salisbury is a rather small city, so traffic tends to be reasonably quiet, although may pick up during rush hour and warm summer days.
  • Rush hour in and around Salisbury peaks between 07:30-09:30 and 17:00-18:00. The evening rush hour may begin slightly earlier during school terms when people are picking up their children. It might serve you well to allow more time in your schedule and avoid roads such as the A36 and the A30 when travelling across these hours. It is likely to snow in Salisbury, something to be mindful of if you’re visiting between December-March. Always take care in these conditions by reducing your speed and keeping a safe distance between you and the car in front.
