Location information for Guildford

Guildford boasts historical and vibrant surroundings with a location along the Surrey countryside and its rolling hills. Most travellers get to Guildford via rail from Portsmouth or Central London. Cheap car hire in Guildford is easy to obtain, with online sources that allow travellers to book in advance so they can conveniently explore the town and its outlying areas.

Guildford is well known for a castle and its vast grounds. The castle was build during King Henry II's reign, although the stone keep is the only part of the castle that still stands today. The town's location along the River Wey also makes Guildford renowned for boat trips across the picturesque river or by simply taking relaxing strolls along the riverbanks.

Housed within a 17th century home is the Guildford Museum that should not be missed for the collections of Surrey's local history that dates back to the prehistoric era. There is also the medieval Guildford Cathedral that is among the two Anglican cathedrals that is still standing today. Visitors can also explore the Guildford House Gallery, which is among the town's most historically important buildings. Inside is a comprehensive display of temporary exhibits and an art collection.

The High Street of Guildford offers shopping options to both visitors and locals. Guildford is also teeming with pubs and restaurants where travellers can have a taste of local cuisine. Fridays and Saturdays are best spent by visiting the street market for its fresh produce, flowers, and fruits, as well as fancy goods and clothing. When visiting during the summer, the music festival of Guildford should not be missed.

Beyond Guildford are charming villages, lovely countrysides, and historical houses that are easily accessed with the help of budget car rental. Having the convenience of cheap car hire in Guildford gives travellers the benefit of driving to Loseley Park, an early Elizabethan mansion that boasts a chapel and a walled garden set across 1,400 acres along the countryside. Visiting the ancient woodlands through the North Downs Way National Trail is also a must for its stunning views.

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 Ecarz.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? 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).
