One of the south coast's biggest cities, Southampton is a thriving port with a rich maritime history, and is one of the UK’s main cruise departure points. It’s also a gateway to the New Forest, the Isle of Wight and the rest of Hampshire – all are within easy reach when you rent a car in Southampton.

There are several car hire offices in the city centre, including Hertz and Europcar, both of which are based at Southampton Cruise Terminal. There's also a Thrifty office near Ocean Village, which is more convenient if you're heading east out of town.
