Location information for Oxford

The UK city of Oxford, known as the City of Dreaming Spires, is the perfect destination for a short break. Diverse architecture, including its world-renowned colleges, museums and lots of shops attract innumerable tourists every year. Oxford is in a prime position for exploring central England and a self-drive hire provides the convenience to do so. Compare car hire before travelling and save money.



Oxford railway station is a 10-minute walk from the city centre and has services from London Paddington as well as from many other UK towns and cities. The city has an adequate bus network which covers most of its suburbs. Outside peak hours, buses are less frequent and the optimum option for reaching outlying sights is a car hire in Oxford.

Car Hire Oxford

With their own transport, visitors are able to venture beyond the Pitt Rivers Museum and the Carfax cross-roads in the heart of town. Donnington Castle, Windsor and Stonehenge are within comfortable driving distance. Enterprise, Budget and Thrifty are among international vehicle rental companies with service offices in Oxford.


Oxford's ancient central streets are not ideally suited for driving and self-drives are better suited for exploring the delights of the Oxfordshire countryside. Buses and trains do go to some of the sites, but services tend to be sporadic. The city ring road is connected to A-roads such as the A34 and A40, which are great for onward travel.

Things To See and Do

Mapledurham House and Watermill, Blenheim Palace at Woodstock and the ruins of the medieval Donnington Castle are some of the fabulous historic sights easily reached with car rental in Oxford. Donnington is to the south and is around midway to both the ancient city of Salisbury and Stonehenge.

Best Time To Visit

Oxford's parks and magnificent edifices look their best when the sun is shining. For this reason it is better to arrive here some time between late May and early September when the thermometer is mostly above 20°C and rain is less frequent. From November to February it is winter and temperatures consistently drop to 0° and below.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
