KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Hove

  • Hove is a small Brighton seaside resort town great for family weekends and tourist holidays. Using car hire in Hove will give you the freedom to get around town and the beach promenades with ease. Instead of travelling on buses and other public transport, Hove car hire allows you to pack your vehicle with essentials for a day at the beach and set off in comfort. If you want to travel out of town, Devil's Dyke is only about a 10-minute drive away. Embrace the landscape views of South Downs National Park, go for a hike or have a picnic.
  • You can find car hire companies at all of London’s airports. If you fly into London Heathrow Airport (LHR), the car hire companies are located at Terminal 5. If you fly into London Gatwick (LGW), you will find the car hire pick-up at South Terminal. When you fly into Stansted Airport (STN), you will locate your vehicle at the car hire village on Coopers End Road or at the main airport bus station.
  • Keep in mind that there are lots of pedestrians, cyclists and cars in this small, busy town. Drive within the speed limits, even when using car hire in Hove, and make sure you know how to navigate the many traffic circles and one-way roads. Planning your route on a mobile app before you head out for the day is a good idea.
  • Driving in Hove, although more comfortable than catching a bus, has some considerations. If you are planning on going to the promenade or the beach, it may be difficult to get street parking close to the main attractions. Additionally, there are lots of pedestrians, so you must keep your eyes peeled. The one-ways can be tricky to navigate, and sometimes the intersections leading in and out of town can form traffic jams. Further, morning rush hour traffic starts at roughly 7:30 while afternoon rush hour begins around 16:30. Roads that can be particularly congested are Kingsway Seafront Road, Old Shoreham Road and Nevill Road as you exit Hove.
  • Book your car hire in Hove at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • What’s the speed limit in Hove?

    The speed limit in the Hove city centre has been a strict 20 mph for close to a decade. This is due to the increasing number of pedestrians and busy traffic conditions. The Hove city council launched this 20 mph policy to ensure safety and fewer accidents. There are slightly higher speed limits as you drive further out of town, but if you are driving within neighbouring areas and the city, you must stick to this speed limit or face fines.

  • Where are the best places to park in Hove?

    When using your Hove hire car, you might want to use a parking app to pre-book or park your vehicle in a municipal car park for the day. The city can get busy, so if you want to shop or head to the beach, it is easier to leave your hire car for the day and travel on foot. There are a few inner city roads where you can park for free at night, but it is generally challenging to find space. There are car parks on Norton Road, Hove Street and more, so plan your trip beforehand. The cost for parking typically starts at £6 per hour, but you can find daily rates for £25-35.

The representative that took us to a different location to pick up an automatic vehicle went above and beyond! Since I never drove on the other side of the road before, he went over everything in detail of what I might expect while driving. He made this a wonderful experience and there were no problems at all! Huge shout out to him!!
