Hampshire Guide

Located in the middle of England’s south coast, Hampshire includes some of England’s most famous ports, tranquil scenery and stunning examples of ancient and medieval architecture.

Majestic Winchester, once the capital of England, is famed for its magnificent cathedral and perfectly preserved historic buildings. This relatively isolated town is a good base for exploring the Hampshire hinterland, and a pleasant retreat from the busy coastal region. Take relaxing strolls through the warrens of cobble-stoned lanes and soak up the traditional atmosphere, or penetrate into the countryside to discover charming little-visited villages.

On the coast stand the important ports of Southampton and Portsmouth, both brimming with fascinating maritime history. Chief among Southampton’s attractions are the remnants of the city’s ancient fortifications, eerie towers, and imposing gates, along with a sprinkling of churches and, of course, an excellent Maritime Museum. Busy Portsmouth is home to England’s Royal Navy and has some interesting historic buildings hidden away in its charming old harbor district.

Quality accommodation is not difficult to find, particularly along the coast, with a myriad of small resorts lining the stretches of coves and beaches. Opportunities for recreation are plentiful, particularly around Lyndhurst and Brockenhurst, which offer cycling, hiking, bird-watching, boating, swimming and windsurfing.

Hampshire is conveniently located for exploring some of England’s most famous attractions. To the north lies Wiltshire, with its mysterious Neolithic sites of Stonehenge and Avebury, while to the west are Dorset and Devon, both featuring some of England’s most stunning scenery and untouched wilderness areas. Offshore is the charming Isle of Wight, best accessed from the quaint harbour town of Lymington.

London’s Heathrow International Airport serves direct flights from most world cities, and there is a myriad of frequent and reliable transportation options to the Hampshire region. Trains depart from London Waterloo station regularly.

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).
