KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Farnborough

  • When evaluating the option of car hire in Farnborough take into account that it will give you a lot more freedom to travel around the town and to visit nearby tourist locations in Hampshire. To get away from it all, head to Frimley Lodge Park, or go further out to the biggest freshwater lake in the county, Fleet Pond, which was fished by monks all the way back in the 14th century. You’ll also be able to reach Keogh Barracks, which houses the fascinating Museum of Military Medicine.
  • It’s something of an irony that one of the towns most associated with aircraft doesn’t have its own commercial airport: although Farnborough Airport is famous for its air show, you can’t actually fly into the town there. Instead you’ll fly to the nearest major airport, which is London Heathrow Airport. You can pick up your Farnborough car hire here and drive the 27 miles at your leisure. As one of the world’s busiest airports, finding the operator you’ve booked with is very easy. Head to Terminals 2 to 5. There are free shuttle and bus departure points right outside each, from where you’ll be taken to collect your car.
  • Farnborough is a pretty quiet place during most of the day, so you don’t have to be too concerned about encountering any traffic snarl-ups. Do look out for plenty of cyclists though, especially right in the centre of town and on the smaller more rural roads. There are also usually lots of pedestrians walking around the centre of town, either shopping or taking their work lunch breaks. So drive a bit more cautiously in the middle of Farnborough. Finding your way around is really easy and the town is covered by a very good road network, with easy access to the M3 at Junctions 4 and 4a.
  • You’re not going to have to deal with anything like a city rush hour in Farnborough, unless there’s an accident on one of the main roads when traffic is a bit heavier than normal. To make absolutely sure that you don’t run afoul of any traffic jams. You’re more likely to encounter congestion on larger roads that feed the town, like the M3 and the A331. When there are backups they usually happen in the Frimley area where the Meadows Roundabout joins the M3.
  • Book your car hire in Farnborough at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact car hire in Farnborough are around -16% cheaper than other car types, on average
