If your trip to Basingstoke is all organized but your travel itinerary is a little on the empty side, let us give you a few hints and tips.
Plan a stop at Willis Museum. It's one attraction you'll find on most travelers' to-do lists. The Anvil and Festival Place are also a stone's throw away and worth checking out.
Don't just journey from point A to B. Get more out of that car by making a detour to Winchester. Only 16 miles from Basingstoke, it's home to terrific attractions like Great Hall and Winchester Cathedral. Get set to start racking up those miles, because Beaulieu National Motor Museum and Southampton Maritime Museum are also a rewarding road trip. You'll discover these great attractions in Southampton, 28 miles away.
If you hope to do some serious networking in the convention centers of Basingstoke, it'd be good to rent some wheels. That way, you can go for a spin, take a look at some nearby attractions and be sure that you'll make it there on time. You'll likely be heading to one of these places:
Here are our recommendations on how to hop behind the wheel of a rental car with some extra cash in your pocket:
Having your own set of wheels in Basingstoke will give you more flexibility to squeeze in as many activities as possible. Maybe you just can't wait to escape town, cruise down the open road, and see where the wind takes you. If that's the case, grab the keys to one of our mid-size or full-size SUVs and take a look at the forests in the area. If you just can't get enough of the bright lights of the city, slide behind the wheel of something small. Zooming around bumper-to-bumper traffic will be a lot easier with a compact or mini car.
Sometimes the journey is more significant than the destination, which makes your car choice particularly important. If you're about to embark on an epic road trip around Basingstoke, a roomy SUV could be your perfect match. If you're looking for the best possible deal and plan to stick to city driving, an economy car is a smart pick. All you need to do is choose what's the best fit, round up the troops, and rack up those miles.
