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.

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.
