Guernsey car hire means you needn’t miss a thing on this captivating Channel Island...
It’s not difficult to see why Brits continue to flock to the island of Guernsey, the little sister of Jersey. Abundant sunshine begs visitors to lay down a towel on the pristine beaches, while the opportunities to stretch your legs and see the countryside never fail to surprise and delight. Those with a taste for adrenaline can ride, surf, sail and dive until the sun sets, while nature lovers go in search of the local puffins. There are castles, nature trails, historic gardens, shipwrecks, secret coves, war-time hideouts and no end of ways to fill your holiday on the island of Guernsey.
Visitors are spoiled for choice when it comes to places to stay. The capital of St Peter Port is a popular spot. The only other city, St Sampson, welcomes many holidaymakers, too. You can also find a comfortable base at destinations around the coast and amid the green interior of the island.
Guernsey is only small and hiring a car means you can cross the island with ease, hopping from the shops and tea rooms of St Peter Port in the east to the white sands of Vazon beach in the west in just minutes. Pre-book your car rental to save money and then collect your vehicle either at Guernsey Airport or another convenient location on the island. Compare prices now with TravelSupermarket.
This lovely island has plenty on offer for tourists. Rent a car in Guernsey and waste no time in exploring the highlights...
When you book car rental, Guernsey opens its welcoming arms at more places than you could reach by public transport or taxis. Sure, you can get around by bus, though the coverage is limited. And of course you could take a taxi everywhere, but the costs will soon mount up when you realise just how much there is to see and do.
Having a car at your disposal means that nowhere in Guernsey is off limits to you. See Castle Cornet and Victor Hugo’s House in St Peter Port. Journey to the west coast to run rings around the Fairy Circle (anti-clockwise three times to have a wish come true) and see Fort Grey and Fort Pezeries. Amid the flatter terrain in the north of the island you’ll stumble upon ancient sites and places such as Beaucette Marina – from here you can see the even smaller islands of Herm and Sark. The rugged landscape of the south reveals smugglers’ coves and views that inspired Renoir to put paint to canvas in the bay of Moulin Huet.
The main island of Guernsey is not the only charm in this chain of jewels. The Bailiwick of Guernsey also encompasses the smaller islands of Alderney and Sark, as well as a handful of other islands. You can book car hire in Alderney or arrange Sark car hire with TravelSupermarket.
