Top tips for hiring a car in Surrey

  • If you are visiting Guildford town in the Surrey region with your hire car, you can find free on-street parking mainly in residential areas, slightly on the outskirts of town or alongside industrial areas, making it a convenient option for parking up and then walking around the city. You can also find several 24-hour car parks in the city centre, if you prefer, for as little as £4 per day. There are also several park n’ ride options.
  • Be mindful of the protocols when driving on motorways in the United Kingdom. Speed limits are usually 70 mph, and these should be adhered to. It can also be considered an offence if you are driving too slow, as this also causes a danger to other drivers. The hard shoulder should never be used in any circumstance unless in an emergency or a breakdown. If this happens, safely pull over to the hard shoulder and put yourself on the other side of the barrier for safety. Breakdown access courtesy phones can be located approximately every mile along the motorway’s edge.
  • Petrol stations are numerous in the United Kingdom, and you will find 24-hour stations open on the region’s motorways and some major A-roads. If you are passing through smaller villages and towns, petrol stations may generally only open from 08:00-20:00, so bear this in mind if you need to refuel your hire car.
  • It is illegal to use a mobile phone when driving in the United Kingdom, and fines can be up to £200 and include six points on your driving licence if caught. Drink driving limits are also set at 80 mg per 100 ml blood and involve severe penalties if broken. It is always safer to leave your vehicle if you are planning an evening out that involves drinking alcohol.
  • Book your car hire in Surrey at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Surrey are around 68% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Surrey

  • Should I hire a car in Surrey?

    Hiring a car in Surrey will enable you easy access to the region’s cities and tourist attractions and allow you to explore the quaint villages like Epsom or Ewell and the rural countryside, which may be limited in public transport options or have irregular timetables. You can also travel in comfort in your own vehicle without the need to haul your luggage around, and you’ll have the freedom to explore at your own pace. Try a visit to the medieval cities of Guildford and Woking, which host the famous McLaren circuits. You can choose from a wide range of vehicles, from compact city cars useful for negotiating narrow cobbled streets to larger vehicles for touring longer distances around the region. A 4x4 may be a good choice for the rolling hills of the countryside.

  • What is driving like in Surrey?

    You can access a wide variety of well-maintained roads in Surrey, from A-roads and motorways to small, narrow country lanes. From Guildford, you can access the loop road along the A246, which will take you through many idyllic villages, or along the A25, which leads you to Dorking; the A24 will take you to Leatherhead. You can also use the toll-free motorways to get you to the neighbouring counties and airports for a faster journey, such as London and Portsmouth, where you can take the M4, M23 and London’s ring road, the M25. Away from the motorways, and on the country lanes, expect a more sedate and relaxed driving experience. It is not unusual to see many classic cars on the roads, enjoying a Sunday drive from village to village.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Surrey?

    The minimum age for car hire in the United Kingdom is 21 years old and you may find yourself subjected to extra charges if you are a driver under 25. A full, valid photographic driving licence is required, which must have been held for at least one year. Bear in mind the paper counterpart is no longer a necessary requirement in the United Kingdom. You will also need a good insurance policy and a credit card for payment.
