To make your Surrey trip run as smoothly as possible, we have a huge selection of vehicles to choose from. Surrey does serve as a romantic backdrop, so if you're taking a loved one on a trip away, then why not pick one of our luxury cars, such as a sports car, elite car or even a convertible? For a more practical vehicle that's great for large families, choose one of our people carriers that can seat up to nine people.

Attractions in Surrey
A trip to Surrey will give you a true insight into English country living. One of the most popular things to do in the county is to visit Hampton Court Palace. This marvellous historic building was once owned by the mighty King Henry VIII, but it is now open to members of the public. Guided tours and parking spots are available for a small fee.
Car lovers should head to the Brooklands Museum Weybridge, which has a host of iconic cars, motorbikes and even airplanes. If you prefer shiny new cars as opposed to vintage models, then the nearby Mercedes-Benz World is sure to impress.
The main reason why many people choose a getaway in Surrey is because of the greenery. Top nature spots include The Sculpture Park in Churt, Bocketts Farm, Box Hill in Dorking, Savill Garden in Englefield Green and Alice Holt Forest.
If you're visiting in the warmer summer months, you can drive to the Thames and walk along the riverbanks to find the perfect spot for a picnic. You can also charter a small boat, and steer it up the river to marvel at the historic buildings, luxury mansions and pretty parks from the water.
Places to Visit Outside Surrey
Many visitors to Surrey make a day trip to the bright lights of Central London. Taking your Surrey rental car out to the bustling city centre takes less than an hour. London needs no introduction, as it is home to iconic landmarks, incredible restaurants and excellent shopping.
Surrey also provides a good base to explore the South Coast, and to make a trip to seaside areas, such as Bournemouth and Southampton. Brighton is a particularly popular oceanfront destination, as it offers clean pebbled beaches, excellent nightlife and a bohemian vibe. History buffs will adore the cobbled, museum-lined streets of historic Oxford. This pretty city can be reached in just over an hour from West Surrey, and there are several affordable places to park your car in and around the city centre. Other places to visit include Cornwall, Bristol, Reading, Southampton, Plymouth and Norfolk. No destination is out of bounds when you hire a rental car in Surrey.
Airport Car Hire
Surrey is served by both Heathrow and Gatwick Airport. Heathrow is one of the busiest airports in the world, and it can be accessed from Surrey via the M25. Gatwick is located just south of Surrey, and it is connected to the county by the M23. Both airports have ample short and long-stay parking options. We have two Enterprise branches located just outside of Heathrow, and one just outside of Gatwick, so you can pick up your car with ease.
Parking and Traffic Information in Surrey
Parking is generally easy to find in Surrey, and costs considerably less than parking in Central London. There are several large NCP car parks dotted around the county, as well as shopping centre car parks and on-street parking in many busy areas. Most hotels, guesthouses and bed and breakfasts offer complimentary or affordable parking facilities for guests with a rented vehicle.
Traffic is also light throughout most of the villages and suburban area in Surrey. During rush hour, there can sometimes be heavier traffic both ways along the M23, M5 and the M25. A GPS will let you know all the latest traffic news, and will calculate the quickest, shortest routes for your trip.
