Top Tips For Renting a Car in Oxford

  • As a visitor to Oxford, renting a car means that you don't have to restrict your sightseeing to the city center. Although there are several options for public transport around the city, they can be expensive and fail to give you the same freedom as a car. There are plenty of places to be discovered across the city and beyond with a car, like the University Museum of Natural History and Bicester Village.
  • Excited to rent a car on your visit to Oxford? If you are landing at London Oxford Airport you will find only one car rental company based on-site. You will find its car rental office located in Building 34, opposite the Terminal entrance, which is a few meters away. You can also arrange a pick-up from other local off-site car rental companies.
  • Travelers new to the UK should remember to drive on the left. When you enter a divided highway or motorway, you must keep to the left-hand lane unless you’re passing. Roundabouts are very common on UK roads, especially in and around Oxford. The traffic will flow in a clockwise direction around roundabouts, so you must give way to traffic approaching from your right.
  • The morning rush hour in Oxford begins around 7:00 am until 10:00 am and again in the evening from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. On Sundays and bank holidays, traffic is much heavier on the roads. If possible, it’s best to avoid the M40 motorway, especially going towards London, on weekdays as it’s often congested at rush hour.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Oxford for $24 or less
  • Book your rental car in Oxford at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Oxford are around 68% cheaper than other car types, on average
