Top tips for hiring a car in Wiltshire

  • Wiltshire is known for its beautiful countryside, historic sites, and charming villages. If you're going to explore rural areas and navigate narrow country lanes, look at picking a smaller car for easier manoeuvrability. Additionally, be aware that some of the roads leading to popular tourist attractions, such as Stonehenge, may have limited parking facilities. Planning and checking for parking options in advance can save you time and frustration.
  • When it comes to Wiltshire car hire at the airport, there are two major options to consider. If you're flying into Bristol Airport (BRS), follow the signs towards the Arrivals area. Once you reach the ground floor, you'll find the car hire desks near the main entrance. Alternatively, if you're arriving at Southampton Airport (SOU), you'll find car hire desks inside the terminal near the Domestic Arrivals area. Head to the designated car hire desks after collecting your luggage.
  • If you're planning to take your hired car from Wiltshire to nearby countries, there are a few things to consider. Driving in the UK is straightforward, but if you want to visit countries like France, Germany, or Italy, extra costs and paperwork might be involved. You might need a vehicle on-hire certificate and a green card for insurance. It's best to check with the car hire company beforehand to get all the specific details and make the necessary arrangements.
  • When driving in Wiltshire, be aware of peak traffic times and the most affected roads. During weekday mornings, rush hour traffic can be heavy from 07:30 to 09:30, especially on main commuter routes like the A303 and A36. In the evenings, expect congestion from 16:30 to 18:30. During winter, certain areas of Wiltshire, particularly in the higher elevations, may experience snowfall, making mountain roads potentially hazardous. Check weather conditions and road closures before driving.
