Top tips for renting a car in Weymouth

  • A car hire in Weymouth gives you the freedom and flexibility to explore much more than just this charming seaside town – the rest of its stunning surrounding areas are easily accessible too. Sights such as Nothe Fort and Chesil Beach are a must, and you can bring the whole family along to SEA LIFE Adventure Park or the Sandworld Sculpture Park for a day of fun. Discover all 95 miles of the Jurassic Coast, a famous world heritage site and geological wonder offering spectacular coastal hikes and unforgettable views. For a change of pace, the thriving city of Bournemouth is reachable in just under 1h, or you could make the 1h 40min trip to Exeter, an ancient Roman city.
  • Bournemouth International Airport is just under 40 miles from Weymouth and the closest airport in the area. There are two Hertz desks located in the main terminal building and you can pick up your Weymouth car hire and be on the road in no time. A little further away is Southampton International Airport, which is roughly a 60-mile drive. Here, you’ll find other top companies like Avis, Europcar, Enterprise and Sixt, also in the main terminal building.
  • A popular tourist destination, Weymouth does experience a heavy flow of traffic, especially during the summer holidays (July-Sept). Pay attention to pedestrians along the beachfront, particularly children, who can often cross the road without warning. The inner roads are mostly wide and well signposted, although if you’re visiting Weymouth for the first time, you may find a sat-nav helpful. Some residential streets can be narrow due to cars parked on either side, so take extra care to avoid minor bumps.
  • Even outside of the summer season, Weymouth can be prone to rush hour traffic, usually between the hours of 07:30-09:30 and 16:30-18:30. Roads such as Weymouth Way leading into town and the A35 towards Bournemouth are normally rather busy in peak periods and can cause delays, which is important to bear in mind when catching a return flight. Heat waves are common in Weymouth, so if you’re visiting during the summer, always remember to carry water in your vehicle. In winter, expect heavy amounts of rain and adjust your speed accordingly in these conditions.

  • A small economy vehicle is ideally suited to the inner town roads and country lanes surrounding Weymouth.

In the height of the summer, a convertible is a stylish option.

  • The speed limit in the centre of Weymouth is 30mph unless stated otherwise (like when there are roadworks, for example). On main roads, dual carriageways, and motorways, the limit tends to vary between 50-70mph. Average speed checks and cameras are common across the UK, so keep an eye out or set your sat-nav to alert you when they’re approaching.

  • The average price of fuel in Weymouth is roughly £1.22 per litre. A tip to find the more reasonable rates is to use the supermarket petrol stations on the edge of town. The Morrison’s on Dorchester Road or the Sainsbury’s on Mercery Road, for example, are great places to top up your tank. When dropping off your Weymouth car hire, you’ll find plenty of stations around the airport, although you’ll likely pay more at these locations.

  • Finding a place to park your car hire in Weymouth can be difficult during the summer season. You’ll be lucky to find a spot next to the beach, but there are a number of car parks just a few minutes’ walk away. The Britannia multi-storey car park, for example, has 469 spaces and costs £1.40 per hour. Another option is the Weymouth Park & Ride. It’s free to park your car, all you have to do is pay for your bus ticket. Buses run every 20min and take you to the centre of town in around 10min.
