Andover Guide

Car Hire

Andover seems like an unassuming destination at first. However, visitors will fall in love with the old-English charm this former market town displays. Resting in the northwestern pocket of County Hampshire, this township contains a selection of alluring sites, such as a bustling pedestrian town centre, the Rooksbury Mill Nature Reserve, a Grade II listed museum and St Mary’s Parish Church. Car hire can assist tourists in getting around the town and reaching surrounding villages like Abbotts Ann and Charlton.

Who to Book With
Enterprise and Avis are the most-globally recognised car rental companies operating in the town. Nevertheless, the market also consists of local car suppliers like Abacus and Silver Lady Hire, which offer reasonably competitive rates and a range of vehicles. Tourists can add to their budget by making bookings online before arriving in Andover.

Best time to go
Andover can get quite cold in the winter months of December, January and February, not to mention drizzly and dark. Therefore, most tourists visit this enchanting township during the warmer summer months, in particular June, July and August. If you visit during the summer, roads are generally safer for driving, but traffic congestion may be an issue at times.

Need to Know Essentials
There are a couple of documents you need to produce when renting vehicles in Andover:

- A valid driving license
- Secondary form of identification that includes address confirmation
- Proof of online reservation
- A valid credit card

Andover is relatively easy to explore by car, as the roads in and around the town are always well-maintained and very simple to navigate. However, roadworks are not uncommon around Hampshire, and can lead to traffic delays. Andover’s High Street is open to motorists, but speeds need to be kept to a minimum, as pedestrians and cyclists regularly use the street. Parking is available along curbs, so shouldn’t be a problem for visitors renting vehicles in Andover.

Like other cities and towns in the county of Hampshire, Andover’s public transportation services are limited to buses and taxis. There is a train station that links to other nearby cities along the Overland train line, but this is the only train transportation service in the town. Local transportation, which includes the bus network, is operated by the Hampshire County Council. Car rental is useful for getting around town and for reaching destinations farther afield.

Private taxis are a popular way to get from A to B in Andover. There are several companies offering services in the town, including Dales Private Hire and 1-2 Call Cabs. Andover is not a large destination, so taxis fares are not usually high if travelling to destinations within the township. Many taxi companies operate around the clock, seven days a week.

The public bus network in Andover is known as Cango, and is a demand-responsive service. This means it doesn’t travel on set routes, but instead uses a booking-regulated timetable. Once booked, buses collect passengers from one of the ‘pick-up stations’ around town. Tourists need to register with Cango before reaching Andover in order to use this service. This company uses both Optare Solo people-movers and Optare Alero minibuses, both of which are comfortable, spacious and safe.


Southern England boasts a stunning landscape, complete with rolling hills, national parks, picturesque coastal settlements and historical cities. Aldershot is located less than an hour’s drive from some of the UK’s most precious landmarks, so tourists should take a few daytrips out of the city if possible. The likes of Winchester, the New Forest and England’s southern coast await travellers with rental cars.

Recommended Drives

Winchester - Once the capital of England and still basks in its historical reverence to this day, is a great place to visit. The main site within the city is its massive cathedral, which began construction in 1079. However, tourists can find dozens of other mesmerising landmarks around Winchester, such as the stunning university and the intriguing city museum.

Portsmouth - Located just 30 miles to the south of Andover, allows tourists easy access to the beautiful south coast. Blessed with a range of historic attractions, Portsmouth is a destination not to be underestimated. The likes of the Southsea Castle, its dockyards, and the city’s two cathedrals make for a great daytrip.

Southampton - A port city just a few miles west of Portsmouth. It is relatively modern when compared to other cities across Hampshire as it was largely bombed during WWII. Nevertheless, plenty of daytrip attractions are available, including beautiful central parks, the Sea-city Museum and the historic Bargate.

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 Carrentals.co.uk 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).
