Guernsey is an excellent island to visit to slow down and simply enjoy the magic of beautiful ocean views and scintillating local legends. Stay mobile on this little island by hiring a car and travel in peace from the Guernsey Airport to Jerbourg Point and the beautiful South Cliff Walks to Port Soif and beyond. Here is a brief guide to finding the cheapest car hire in Guernsey.
Rental cars in Guernsey are available at the Guernsey Airport (GCI). Car hire in Guernsey typically starts at around €28 a day.
The cheapest rental car company at the Guernsey Airport is typically Europcar, which offers car hire in Guernsey for under €30 a day while economy rental cars are available. Plan to book your Guernsey car hire four months in advance of your arrival in order to receive the most availability of different types of rental cars.
Keep an eye out for discounts from EconomyBookings.com that range from 5 to 23% that drive the price of rental cars in Guernsey even lower! Particularly if you are travelling to Guernsey toward the beginning or end of the summer tourist season, you can often find discounts of around 15% on last-minute economy rental cars.
Driving in Guernsey is different from driving in the United Kingdom, even though the island is within the Common Travel Area of the British Isles. For instance, some road signs may be different, and roads are typically quite narrow. Traffic, when there is any, tends to be quite slow-moving.
While there is a car ferry that connects Guernsey with its sister Channel Island, Jersey, most car rental companies prohibit you from taking your rental car on this or any other ferry. If you would like to travel beyond the borders of the island via car hire in Guernsey, be sure to speak with your car rental company in advance to acquire the proper permissions and documents!
