Car hire in Oxford

Dating back to the 8th century, the famous university city of Oxford has long-been a trendy destination. Housing the oldest university in the UK, the city is filled with picturesque architecture and surrounded by stunning countryside, which is best explored on self-driving tours. There are a great number of well-known car rental agents in town, but visitors should compare cheap car hire in Oxford now with to get the best deals.

Why to visit

Known as the ‘City of Dreaming Spires', Oxford is the largest and most vibrant city in the region. Its medieval churches and Gothic architecture blend seamlessly with its lively nightlife and fantastic selection of eateries, not to mention its eclectic mix of old and new. The city is served by many major routes, making it easy to explore all corners of the region by car hire.


Oxford does not have its own commercial airport, but it is quite close to London, some may arrive here from Heathrow. The city itself is quite dense and easy to tour on foot or by bicycle, but for those wanting to see beyond the colleges and historical architecture, it is best to arrange car rental in Oxford, the most convenient and comfortable way to tour the area. Those doing this can enjoy a daytrip to the famous Cotswolds or a visit to the Iron Age hill fort at Whitehorse Hill.

What to see and do

With Oxford car hire, you can easily make the eight-mile drive to Brenham Palace. This beautiful stately home, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is located in the town of Woodstock. Shopoholics should take a daytrip to Bicester, which is home to a designer outlet village and only a 20-minute drive away. Boat-lovers visiting in June or July should not miss the Henley-on-Thames Royal Regatta, and nature lovers must make the 15-mile journey southeast to Goring and Streatley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

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.

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).

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?

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.
