Why rent a car in Bournemouth with Rentalcars.com?

Whether you want a luxury car for a wedding, a convertible sports car for coastal drives or a compact car for city driving, you will find a great choice of vehicles in Bournemouth at Rentalcars.com. We negotiate with brands like Europcar, Hertz and Thrifty to secure exclusive rates and cheap prices. In fact, our Best Price Guarantee means if you find the same car from the same supplier cheaper elsewhere, we will beat the quote.

Top Tips

  • Avoid driving in the town centre during rush hour, as the roads can be congested.
  • Filling your car up with fuel at a motorway service station is generally more expensive than purchasing petrol from a roadside garage.
  • Parking can be a problem in Bournemouth, particularly on bank holiday weekends.

When customers book with us, we ask them to rate and review the company who supplied their car — so you can get in insight into which brands people trust and recommend the most.

Day trips from Bournemouth

The New Forest: Covering 145 square miles, the New Forest is a place of ancient history, fascinating wildlife and picturesque scenery. Situated approximately 13 miles from Bournemouth, this National Park was once a royal hunting ground and the thriving working forest that stands here today has survived for nearly 1000 years. The blend of heathlands and ancient woodlands is ideal for cycling, horse-riding and walking. The forest has become a magnet for visitors who come to admire the area’s natural beauty.

Jurassic Coast: Situated approximately 40 miles from Bournemouth, the Jurassic Coast is a World Heritage Site and a jewel in the crown of Britain’s coastline. The area is also one of Europe’s most popular sites for fossil hunters; the rocks found throughout this extraordinary region cover 180 million years of the earth’s history. Renowned for being one of the richest heritage sites for prehistoric remains, the 95-mile coastline stretching from Dorset to East Devon is visited by thousands of visitors each year.

SeaCity Museum, Southampton: Based in the heart of Southampton, around 35 miles from Bournemouth, the SeaCity Museum tells the story of the people of the city, their fascinating lives and the city’s historic connections with the Titanic and the sea. As the port from which the doomed liner set sail in 1912, Southampton is at the very heart of the Titanic story. Visiting the museum, you can explore the 1:25 scale interactive model of the ship, experience the ‘Disaster Room’ and immerse yourself in the 1930s courtroom which depicts the inquiry held in London following the catastrophe.
