Location information for Brighton

Car hire in Brighton

Vibrant and diverse; Brighton will satisfy all your holiday needs. The charming seaside town on the south coast of England is more than just a regular waterfront getaway. Drive around Brighton and Hove and you will discover the perfect escape with pebble beaches, little alleys filled with boutiques, and food heaven. Brighton is a fashionable place a true favourite among all ages. Having a car in Brighton will allow you to expand further than the main town to places like the medieval castle town of Lewes.

Why to visit

The famous Brighton Pier and the Royal Pavillion are just a fraction of the great sites available to see on your holiday to delightful Brighton. Satisfy the child within you with a jaunt on the arcades and eat ice cream and candy floss along the seafront. Affordable car rental in Brighton is the best option for getting around as public transport is difficult to negotiate within Brighton itself. Having your own vehicle in Brighton opens up the opportunities to discover the best of the nearby beaches and coastal villages.


Half an hour drive from Gatwick Airport or an hour by rail from London, Brighton is easy to reach. Brighton car hire provides a way to explore the whole region. On foot, you can explore the little pathways and pebbled beaches of Brighton itself. But having your own car for the duration of your holiday will enable you to experience more than just the pier, The Lanes or the pavillion. Compare cheap car hire in Brighton here for the best deal.

What to see and do

Take a short drive out to the Devil's Dyke. About five miles out of town, this is a perfect place for summer picnics and spectacular views. Another short drive and you can find the pleasing Preston Park. Boasting rose gardens, a jungle area, cafes, and clean public toilets, this park is superb for relaxing and getting out of town. Medieval Lewes with its castle is just 20 minutes' drive away.

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?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

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).
