Oxford is famous for its historic university, but beyond the 'dreaming spires' you'll find two areas of outstanding natural beauty: the Cotswolds and the Chilterns. Hire a car in Oxford and head into the country, stopping for pub lunches, afternoon teas and quiet strolls at a string of chocolate-box villages.

There are several cheap car hire companies just to the west of Oxford city centre, on the Osney industrial estate. They're handy for those arriving by rail at Oxford Station, just a 10-minute walk away.

Car rental options in Oxford:

  • Thrifty (Tel: +44333 332 1222)
  • Hertz (Tel: +441865 920164)
  • Europcar (Tel : +44371 384 5974)

Heading away from Oxford on Botley Road, you'll come to an industrial estate with National Car Rental (+441865 202088) and 1car1 Oxford (+441865 248096), both offering good deals in 2020. From here, you can easily get onto the A34 (leading to the A40) or the A420.
