KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Staines-upon-Thames

  • Car hire in Staines upon Thames is a very good option, even though the town is still with the ambit of the Greater London Commuter belt, as it will allow you to freedom to explore the broader Surrey area on your own schedule. Black Park Country Park is one of them, about 7.5 miles from Staines town centre. There is also Thorpe Park, with its imaginative modern fairground attractions, restaurants and coffee shops. The Thames River flows through the town, which was once the centre of linoleum production in the UK. Visit also the famous commemorative Lino Statue on the High Street.
  • The town is only about 3 miles away from London’s Heathrow airport, and you can collect your Staines upon Thames car hire right there once you’ve landed. All the major car hire operators like Avis, Hertz, Sixt, Budget and others can be found in Terminals 2 to 5. If you arrive in Terminals 4 or 5 a free shuttle will take you directly from the exit to the hire car parking. From Terminals 2 and 3 you can take a free short bus ride from the airport’s central bus station just outside.
  • When you’re driving in Staines you’ll find a fair amount of traffic in the town centre. You also have to watch out for plenty of eager joggers in all the riverside areas and around the Staines Reservoirs near London Road and the A30 Staines Bypass. Along the Thames in the vicinity of Staines Bridge you should also keep an eye out for strolling pedestrians. The centre of Staines is also a busy market area, and has been since 1218, so drive carefully in that district as well.
  • Peak rush hour times are from 08:00 to 09:00 in the morning, and in the late afternoon between 16:00 and around 17:30. You should definitely try to avoid the Staines Bridge roundabout at these times, as well as the Crooked Billet roundabout, where you’ll feel as if you’re driving left in order to go right. As a result, minor bumper bashings can often occur here due to this confusion, which can hold traffic up even more. Other than that you won’t have to worry about much else when driving around Staines.

FAQs about car hire in Staines-upon-Thames

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Staines-upon-Thames?

    It’s advisable to approach car hire in Staines upon Thames in the same way you would in a large urban city if you intend to spend the bulk of your visit in the vicinity of the town centre. You’ll appreciate a more compact car that you can easily manoeuvre in the traffic, like a city car or a saloon that’s on the smaller side. Exploring southwards into Surrey yields quieter roads with more free-flowing traffic, so you can hire something more spacious, like a saloon or an MPV with plenty of room and visibility.

  • What’s the speed limit in Staines-upon-Thames?

    The speed limit in built up areas in Staines is 30mph, with 40mph allowed on the larger roads. However, make sure to watch out for speed limits signs, as many sections of these roads have 30mph zones, like the section between Cadbury Road and Windmill Road, and as you approach the Sunbury Cross roundabout. On some of the dual carriageways through the town the speed limit rises to 50mph, but once again watch out for traffic calming signs that reduce the limit to 40mph, especially between Fairways and Cadbury Road.

  • Where are the best places to park in Staines-upon-Thames?

    For parking closest to the centre of town choose the Elmsleigh Shopping Centre car park. You’ll only pay around £1 per hour for up to 4h.

5.2 Fair

Dec 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Shuttle driver and staff was very friendly.

Cons:

I was told I had to downgrade my rental or upgrade because the shuttle driver took me to the wrong terminal. Because downgrading wouldn’t work, I had to love up to the larger vehicle and my rental rate DOUBLED!!!

10.0 Wonderful

Aug 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

I had not even heard of Sixt before, but this experience gave me confidence to use the service again and to recommend it to others.

10.0 Wonderful

Apr 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

It was easy...located near T5 inside Sofitel. The time at the counter was kept to a minimum and the people at the counter friendly and helpful.

9.6 Wonderful

Jan 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Good service at both ends. Good car.

Cons:

Pickup at Heathrow was difficult to find, however we could have used the bus service and that would have simplified.

3.2 Poor

Jan 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

Claim it is in the airport but you have to walk 20min. Better take a shuttle! Staff was very unfriendly and told us they only hold the car for one hour when we arrived with a 2 hours delay... they couldn’t supply the car we booked but instead of offering a bigger car they tried to sell us a smaller one! It had a strong smell of cigarettes and several dents not recorded in the inspection sheet. We had to refuse and after 1:30 of waiting/negotiation we finally magically had the car we booked. Will never use Sixt again

2.0 Poor

Nov 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Absolutely nothing

Cons:

Did not have the car I ordered but were willing to rent me a bigger car for considerably more. Insisted I buy their insurance at a ridiculous cost even though I had documentation for ample coverage from the US. Totally belligerent and disrespectful. This was the terminal 3 office at LHR. Best decision was to walk away. Do you know that we do have options???
