Oxford is one of the most known cities of the world, rightly termed as “the city of dreaming spires” by poet Mathew James. This city is known as the house to the most ancient university, the Oxford University, which is the oldest university in the English speaking world. The architecture of this city is incomparable to any other, as it inhibits a harmony of British architecture from every era since the arrival of Saxons. The population of this city is only 165,000.
People from all around the world come here to get higher education or just to visit it. In fact, it would be completely unfair to England to not visit this city, if you are here on vacations. Considering the demand of the tourists, the transport infrastructure is immaculate. You can travel through the railway or the bus transport, and if you want some freedom, try the car rentals, which are the perfect solution.
If you intend to visit the city, book a car of your choice on rent. You could reach the city through airports of London Heathrow, Gatwick or Birmingham. Once you have booked your car in advance, there would not be problem in visiting the city and places of your choice. The best part about Oxford is that parking is absolutely free. In fact, the city operates on a park and ride policy, where you park and ride a bus to the centre of the town.
On the other hand, you would have plenty of time to admire the magnificence of the city from your driver’s seat. You could visit places such as the Sheldonian theatre if you are a theatre lover or stopover at the quadrangle of Oxford University on your convenience in your car hire. You could also pause at the favorite cafés of the literary giants like Oscar Wilde, C.S. Lewis, Tolkein etc. or go shopping at places like Broad Street, Clarendon shopping centre, Queen street etc.
If you are a nature lover, you must also visit University parks, Mesopotamia, South parks, C.S. Lewis nature reserve, or Rock edge nature reserve. All you need to do is to book your car hire before hand and take a detailed map of the city. That way, you could make out the most out of your trip, as you can go wherever you want to at any time of the day.
The car hire is usually available at discounted rates. Most of the companies also provide free pick up service from the airport. You could choose from a wide variety of cars such as commercial vehicles, executive vehicles or even small cars, depending on your needs. Whether you are in the city for business or for pleasure, you will find a car hire with a rate that suits your budget and your needs. Different rates apply for weekdays, weekends, package deals (for a number of days) or one day rides. Another benefit is that if you do not have international license, you can even opt for a chauffeur driven car.
