Top tips for renting a car in Portsmouth

  • Portsmouth is the only island-city in the UK with a naval history stretching back to the time of the Spanish Armada. With your car hire in Portsmouth, you can discover the magnificence of its natural harbour as well as points within and beyond. Take a short trip 3 miles south to visit the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and tour the magnificent HMS Victory, then move on to impressive Spinnaker Tower for a taste of the old and the new. Enjoy a nice evening jaunt to Southampton 20 miles east along the M27, where you can enjoy dinner and the view.
  • Southampton Airport (SOU) offers a great variety of options for car hire in Portsmouth including Sixt, Enterprise and Europcar and you’ll need a reliable vehicle for the 32-mile drive east. The airport’s car hire area is directly across from the terminal, so you’ll have no trouble finding it once you exit the building.
  • Portsmouth is a densely populated city for its size and its importance as a main naval base means there’s bound to be areas prone to congestion with vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians. Expect to encounter heavy traffic in the eastern and southern portions where business and industry thrive on a daily basis. The A3 and A288 curve through these districts while the A2047 dissects the city south and connects the island with the mainland.
  • Naval cities tend to have an earlier rise than most, so anticipate the morning and evening rush hours to act accordingly. To be safe, 6:00-8:00 and 16:00-19:00 are times during the week when gridlock along primary roads should be expected. Bear this in mind making your way to and from Southampton Airport along the M27 and the M275, as well as along the A2030 ring road. Weekends are liable to busy with sports and other special events so keep your sat nav handy in case your travel route needs to be amended.
