Top tips for renting a car in Swindon

  • Car hire in Swindon is a good idea if you want to explore the area and have flexibility. Situated almost midway between the cities of Bristol and Reading, Swindon is a large town with a flourishing energy and electronics presence and holds the distinction of being the home of the UK Space Agency. Oxford and its world-famous university lies about 30 miles to the north-east via the A420, while Reading, home to the annual Reading and Leeds Festival, is about 40 miles east via the M4. Both are within easy reach with a car hire.
  • Hertz, Avis and National are among the list of providers operating at Bristol Airport (BRS) where you can obtain a car hire in Swindon. This airport is closest (42 miles away) to Swindon and likely the most convenient place for car hire pick up. The Car Hire Centre is located near the Silver Zone Car Park and requires a trip on the free shuttle to get there. The collection point for the shuttle is not far from the terminal entrance, just follow the signs once you exit the Arrivals Hall. They run about every 10min and are available 24h a day.
  • The M4, which bypasses Swindon to the south and east, as well as the A419 coursing along the eastern and northern fringe, are obvious markers for morning and evening rush hour traffic if you are heading beyond the town. There is an intricate system of roundabouts in the downtown area to manage the flow of traffic that may present delays and gridlock on occasion. Additionally, the two transfer bridges in close formation near the Gorse Hill district could prove tricky. Pedestrians, cyclists and motorbikes also share the streets so exercise caution at all times.
  • If you intend to avoid morning traffic jams you should either depart earlier than 07:00 or later than 10:00 to make your journey more enjoyable. Be advised that it’s not uncommon to experience tie-ups in the early afternoon hours of 13:00-15:00, especially near educational institutions and commercial centres like shopping malls. Inbound traffic should encounter delays from about 19:00 until about 20:30, notably along the M1 and A419.
