What to do in Southampton

We’re here for your Southampton car hire needs so that you can arrive ready to explore this seaside city. Southampton is famous for its port, which has become an attraction as the harbour from which the Titanic sailed. Since you'll have a vehicle, you can then drive out to the New Forest National Park where wildlife abounds, while the city's medieval walls are also a must-see attraction. 

Summer in Southampton

As a harbour city, many summer activities are maritime related. Explore Ocean Village for shopping and outdoor eating with all-round sea views. Or keep the family entertained at Riverside Park, with its wildlife-filled riverside walk, play areas, and sports fields where you can get some exercise or kick a ball around if you're in a group. Otherwise you can take a ferry to visit nearby Isle of Wight. Find everything you need with your hire car’s sat nav.

Booking was easy and straight forwards. Prices were good and competitive.

I received a courtesy call from Bobby which was helpful and on meeting Bobby to collect the vehicle, he was very polite, friendly, professional and helpful.

I would recommend Sixt at Southampton Airport and would definitely use again if I needed to.

Cezhan A.

Great experience with Sixt. Excellent car rental experience, the process is really easy and they even upgraded me to an Audi A3 which was super-nice, and also gave me free excess (so if someone dinged the car I wouldn't be responsible). The supervisor there Julian was really nice and helpful, extremely customer-centric. Went out of his way to make sure I had a good experience. Thank you Sixt!

Andy P.

Excellent service. Made an error with my booking but Julian sorted out quickly and efficiently. A pleasure to hire a vehicle from. Highly competitive prices and great staff. Highly recommended
