KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Tonbridge

  • A car hire in Tonbridge gives you the freedom to explore not just this quaint market town in the South of England but the surrounding region as well. Tonbridge Castle and Hadlow Tower offer a glimpse into the town’s medieval past and there are plenty of parks and natural attractions nearby. Haysden Country Park is only an 8min drive away and the stunning views of High Weald national park can be reached in 25min. Venture further afield and visit Brighton for some fresh coastal air. The journey takes around 1h 20min. You can also be in the centre of London in the same amount of time and spend a day taking in the sights of the UK capital.
  • The closest airport to Tonbridge is London Gatwick, which is roughly 35 miles away. There, you find a selection of top car hire companies like Sixt, Hertz, Enterprise and more with a versatile range of vehicles on offer. You’ll find the desks at either the north or south terminals and a regular shuttle runs between each if you end up landing in the opposite one. Likewise, you can collect your Tonbridge car hire from London Heathrow by visiting the desks spread across terminals 2-4. It’ll take just under an hour to get to Tonbridge if the traffic bodes well.
  • A small town, Tonbridge is primarily made up of residential streets that are lined with cars and can therefore be quite narrow. As such, a little extra care should be taken in these kinds of areas. The centre of town can be busy with pedestrians, so drive at a steady pace and watch out for people crossing the road from anywhere, not necessarily at designated junctions. There are a couple of busier roads in the built up areas of town, but nothing like the bigger cities.
  • Commuter traffic coming on and off the M25 around Tonbridge can be especially busy during rush hour. This is usually between 07:30-09:30 and from the 15:30 school pick-up to around 18:30. The A26 is another road to try your best to avoid during these hours. It can also be clogged up on Saturday mornings. If you’re visiting Tonbridge in the winter, heavy rain and snow can be expected, so you should adjust your driving accordingly in these conditions.
  • Book your car hire in Tonbridge at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact car hire in Tonbridge are around 43% cheaper than other car types, on average
