KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Staines-upon-Thames

  • Car hire in Staines upon Thames is a very good option, even though the town is still with the ambit of the Greater London Commuter belt, as it will allow you to freedom to explore the broader Surrey area on your own schedule. Black Park Country Park is one of them, about 7.5 miles from Staines town centre. There is also Thorpe Park, with its imaginative modern fairground attractions, restaurants and coffee shops. The Thames River flows through the town, which was once the centre of linoleum production in the UK. Visit also the famous commemorative Lino Statue on the High Street.
  • The town is only about 3 miles away from London’s Heathrow airport, and you can collect your Staines upon Thames car hire right there once you’ve landed. All the major car hire operators like Avis, Hertz, Sixt, Budget and others can be found in Terminals 2 to 5. If you arrive in Terminals 4 or 5 a free shuttle will take you directly from the exit to the hire car parking. From Terminals 2 and 3 you can take a free short bus ride from the airport’s central bus station just outside.
  • When you’re driving in Staines you’ll find a fair amount of traffic in the town centre. You also have to watch out for plenty of eager joggers in all the riverside areas and around the Staines Reservoirs near London Road and the A30 Staines Bypass. Along the Thames in the vicinity of Staines Bridge you should also keep an eye out for strolling pedestrians. The centre of Staines is also a busy market area, and has been since 1218, so drive carefully in that district as well.
  • Peak rush hour times are from 08:00 to 09:00 in the morning, and in the late afternoon between 16:00 and around 17:30. You should definitely try to avoid the Staines Bridge roundabout at these times, as well as the Crooked Billet roundabout, where you’ll feel as if you’re driving left in order to go right. As a result, minor bumper bashings can often occur here due to this confusion, which can hold traffic up even more. Other than that you won’t have to worry about much else when driving around Staines.
  • Book your car hire in Staines-upon-Thames at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Staines-upon-Thames are around -107% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Staines-upon-Thames

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Staines-upon-Thames?

    It’s advisable to approach car hire in Staines upon Thames in the same way you would in a large urban city if you intend to spend the bulk of your visit in the vicinity of the town centre. You’ll appreciate a more compact car that you can easily manoeuvre in the traffic, like a city car or a saloon that’s on the smaller side. Exploring southwards into Surrey yields quieter roads with more free-flowing traffic, so you can hire something more spacious, like a saloon or an MPV with plenty of room and visibility.

  • What’s the speed limit in Staines-upon-Thames?

    The speed limit in built up areas in Staines is 30mph, with 40mph allowed on the larger roads.

On some of the dual carriageways through the town the speed limit rises to 50mph, but once again watch out for traffic calming signs that reduce the limit to 40mph, especially between Fairways and Cadbury Road.

7.6 Good

Dec 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff was very friendly and the service to the airport very efficient.

Cons:

I believe the class of car was slightly misrepresented. I asked for a mid sized luxury and was presented with a Mini Cooper - not big enough for 3 of us and our luggage. I was upsold for a bigger BMW, and total cost was nearly 100% higher than the quoted price. (I did add a driver to the total). I was charged for a premium location as well, which was not part of my understanding when I booked.

3.6 Poor

Oct 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Pickup was awful. Had to argue to receive the class of car we had paid for. They were trying to downgrade rather than upgrade us when they did not have the exact type of car available that we had paid for. After arguing, magically, the exact car we had paid for appeared, ready to go!

Cons:

SIXT has absolutely no signage to direct you to their rental car return at Heathrow. Originally we were booked in to return our car directly at Terminal 5, where I knew we could take the train to Terminal 2. Instead the "helpful" agent changed our drop-off to an off-site location which required bus
