Popular car groups at Southampton Airport

Southampton Airport (SOU)

Southampton, Hampshire SO18 2NL

Southampton Airport is a gateway into the south of England, and a hub for several low-cost airlines (such as easyJet and Flybe). The airport is a popular pick-up location for hire cars, thanks to its close proximity to the M27 and M3: London can be reached in just under two hours.

Around 4 miles (6.5km) from Southampton city centre, the airport welcomes over 1.5 million passengers each year — and we help many of them find and compare cheap car hire deals.

Finding a great deal

We bring you exclusive prices across a range of car groups, so you can be sure you are getting a great deal. In just a few clicks, you can see deals from lots of well-known car hire companies at Southampton Airport (such as Europcar, Hertz and Avis). We explain exactly what is included in your rental upfront, so you know what you are getting for your money.

Getting a great deal is simple, but knowing which companies people think most highly of is often more difficult. To help you make an informed decision, we ask each customer to rate their overall rental experience, from the ease of locating the counter to the cleanliness and condition of the vehicle. You can see their feedback when you search for a car on our site.

Don’t forget: by booking a car with a full-to-full fuel policy, you will avoid hidden fuel costs (as long as you fill up the tank just before the end of your rental).

Choice of cars

Whether you want something suited to city driving, a family-sized vehicle or a luxury car, you will be spoiled for choice with the range of cars at Southampton Airport.

The mini, economy and compact cars are great for getting around the city, as they’re easy to drive and park (they’re also perfect for couples and single travellers without much luggage). For something with a bit more space, consider an intermediate or standard car, or even an estate.

If you are travelling for business (or just want to make your trip extra special), why not treat yourself to a premium or luxury car?

To make finding your perfect car even easier, use the filters on the search page to narrow down the results based on your needs and preferences. You can filter cars by supplier, rating, pick-up location, fuel policy, size and specifications (like cars with automatic transmission and air conditioning).
