KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Swindon

  • You must typically fulfil some requirements to qualify for cheap car hire in Swindon. You must have attained the minimum age of 21 years for any car hire company to entrust you with their vehicles. Depending on the car hire agency, you may be required to be at least 25 years old. Those below the age of 25 but above 21 could also have a surcharge. A valid driver's licence is a requirement, and if you are travelling to Swindon from a country other than the UK, you should check to see if you need an international driving permit.
  • Nothing beats the flexibility offered by cheap car hire in Swindon compared to other forms of transport. With these cars, you can easily visit varied and distant locations within the city. You will not have to switch between the different modes of transport to reach your destination; rather, a single trip will get you there. Among the places you can visit in your Swindon hire car is Lydiard House & Park, located roughly 3.5 miles away from the city centre. It will take you approximately 10min to complete the journey.
  • The extras you can add to your hire car will vary based on your chosen Swindon car hire agency. Still, some frequent options include a global positioning system (GPS), which can assist you in navigating Swindon and the surrounding areas. You may also add a driver to your hire agreement if you intend to share driving duties with another individual, for an extra fee. If you are travelling with young children, you can hire child safety seats to ensure their safety and comfort throughout the drive. For those visiting Swindon or the nearby areas in the winter, you may need to add snow chains to your hire agreement. Before making your reservation, check with your preferred car hire provider to see what extras are available and what fees apply.
  • 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.

  • Book your car hire in Swindon at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Car hire insurance in Swindon

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Swindon car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Swindon.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Swindon car hire.
