Top Tips for Hiring an SUV in Southampton

  • Southampton is a major UK port and a premier destination for summer travel, with a full complement of public transport networks. They are all nevertheless, limited by schedules and timetables which can often impede your travel plans. With Southampton SUV hire, you get 4X4 capability to navigate the terrain at New Forest Wildlife Park and cruise control for the highways in-between whenever you want. The park is around 7 miles south of Central Southampton via the A33, with a vintage car museum and plenty of trails. The historic port of Portsmouth meanwhile is located only 20 miles away if you take the M27.
  • Southampton-Eastleigh Airport is less than 5 miles from the city centre so getting there is a breeze in a Southampton SUV hire. Southampton-Eastleigh has a car hire centre staffed by several of the major providers including SIXT, Europcar and National who can have a Nissan X-Trail or Audi A3 standing by when your flight arrives. Their offices are just outside the Arrivals exit, opposite the Baggage Reclaim Area for your convenience, but you must be at least 21 years of age to get the keys. Additionally, they will add charges to any driver under 25 years old.
  • Have your valid passport, ID and valid domestic driver’s license handy and bring along your International Driving Permit (IDP) if it’s in date. Although most customers arrange payment using a major credit card, many of the big agencies also allow the use of bank debit cards to give you additional flexibility. Whichever card you choose, be sure the name is identical to your license to avoid any inconvenience or delay.
  • You should drive your SUV hire on the left-side of the road and perform a seatbelt check as well as connect your hands-free mobile before getting on your way. CCTV cameras are ever-present in Southampton so keep to the speed limits whenever possible. Observe speeds of about 50 km/h (30 mph) in built-up areas of the city and about 90 km/h (60 mph) in all other areas unless otherwise indicated. Along major roads like dual carriageways and motorways, the maximum speed is 120 km/h 70 mph). Driving under the influence is strictly forbidden. In cases of emergency dial 999.

FAQs About Hiring an SUV in Southampton

  • Are there any difficulties driving a SUV hire in Southampton?

    The M27 traverses the northern outskirts of Southampton and is the primary artery for inbound & outbound traffic. The interchange with the M271 affects traffic patterns in the western sections and experiences some congestion weekday mornings between 7am-8am and evenings from 7pm-8:30pm. The port area of Southampton is always extremely busy, especially in the afternoons from 1pm-4pm, and you can expect high increases in overall traffic in this area during the hectic summer months. Be mindful of pedestrians and cycle traffic around Southampton Common and Charlotte Place Roundabout as you travel.

    If you’re not entering the city by air, there are still a couple of excellent locations to pick-up a Southampton SUV hire.

Virtually all of the major providers including Alamo, Thrifty and SIXT have locations in the area for easy reservations.

  • What are the best places to park a Southampton SUV hire?

    Free on-street parking is possible in Southampton, but very difficult to find in the city centre.

City parking is free Monday-Saturday: 8am-8pm and Sundays-Holidays: 6pm-1pm.

Pros:

car Was better than I expected

Cons:

1) Alamo found one of the types to have a chip out of it so keep our GBP 300 deposit. Absolutely certain it was not us who did that ( we only did 60 miles and the car was left in secure parking over night). ......double and triple check before you hire! Video your car,

The tires were under inflated -warning lights came on, had to turn around and I had to go back to the rental place to fix it! Otherwise everything was great!

2.0 Poor

Apr 2024

KAYAK
Had to rate as poor across the board. When I booked the hire car through Kayak, the confirmation email clearly stated that Third Party Insurance was included. When I arrived to collect the car, I was told this was not the case and effectively there was no Third Party Insurance on my booking, and the excess was £100,000 unless I agreed to pay a further £280 in additional insurances. I hire cars frequently and am well aware of the different levels of insurance to consider - but I was careful to book a car where the Third Party Insurance was included. I couldn’t believe it when the team at Europcar ignored what was on the booking form and maintained that it was not, and that I would be liable for the large amount excess in the case of any incident. I refused to drive the car on that basis and currently am left over £500 out of pocket for this non refundable booking. Won’t use Europcar (or Kayak) again.

The exterior of the car was dirty, with bird droppings on it. Otherwise, the only other issue was that the car kept falsely showing low rear tire pressure.

Pros:

The lady that helped us was very patient and polite. She must meditate and listen to relaxing music in her free time to be able to cope with all the angry customers she gets.

Cons:

Off airport. Compulsary insurance which costs a fortune. From the look of it the cars that were provided had quite some damage already so maintanance/turnover is questionable. Uber was a lot more afordable in our case. We ended up going back to the airport and taking a taxi.
