Reasons to Rent a car for Your day out in Oxfordshire

Are you visiting Oxford? Oxford is a beautiful city of history and culture as well as stunning architecture. Sometimes trips are too short to visit all of the attractions. Therefore you may find hiring a car is a great solution – allowing more flexibility with your visit. Renting a vehicle means you don’t have to restrict your sightseeing opportunities, Oxford and the surrounding villages will become far more accessible and you don’t have to worry about scheduling your day around public transport. Public transport is fantastic and great if you are staying in the city center, however, if you want to explore further afield, a hire car in Oxford could be perfect for you.


 It Will Save you Time

This means that you will have a lot more time to spend sightseeing and you will have the chance to see as much as you can. Oxfordshire is a beautiful county, and many parts are accessible via public transport. Hiring a vehicle will make it easier for you to go between the little villages and towns. It also means that you can manage your own time, as opposed to being under strict time restraints.


Freedom to Explore

Once you have discovered the joys of Oxfordshire, you can travel across the borders to Gloucestershire, Warwickshire or even go to London. With stunning scenery, country roads and wealth of history with your hire car you can visit so many fantastic locations. If shopping is more your thing then Bicester Village Shopping outlet is a 30-minute drive away. It has a village inspired architecture with paved streets and nice cafes and restaurants. Most local areas have plenty of parking or offer great park and ride facilities.

Oxford itself is an ancient city with an architectural heritage going right back to Saxon times. Apart from many college buildings, other places that may take your fancy may be the Bodleian Library and the Ashmolean, Pitt Rivers, Natural History Museums. Take yourself to the top of Carfax Tower to see the dreaming spires of Oxford or go for a meal and beverage on one of many of the rooftop restaurants. There are plenty of places to go for entertainment such as theatres and cinemas. The shopping is great and recently underwent a massive investment which has seen the Westgate upgraded and improved and is now a huge part of the city.

Although there may be alternatives to hiring a car, such as a bus, they do not provide the level of comfort that you would find in a hire car. Another positive is storage. If you are out in oxford, you will most likely be shopping to a degree, and can simply drop off all your items to your car. This simply prevents you needing to carry your shopping for long periods of time. Hire cars can also get you closer to your destination, when in comparison with a bus for example. For example, if you had a hotel you can simply drive straight to the hotels car park as opposed to walking from a bus stop.
