Soak up the best that this place has to offer by adding Covered Market and Exeter College to your travel schedule. If you have an extra day to spare, take a look at Sheldonian Theatre and Radcliffe Camera as well.
Stop by Carfax Tower. It's one attraction you'll usually find on most travelers' to-do lists. Jesus College and Oxford Town Hall are also close by and worth checking out.
With some awesome day trip options in the surrounding area, renting a car makes good sense. Without one, it wouldn't be half as easy to experience all that Swindon, 25 miles away, has to offer. Royal British Legion Remembrance Garden, Laserquest Swindon and ATBShop Skate Warehouse alone make the drive out worthwhile. Burford is another popular destination. It's 19 miles away and has a variety of awesome things to see and do. Cotswold Wildlife Park, Church of St John the Baptist and Tolsey Museum are only the start.
If you're going to a corporate conference in Oxford, you may want to follow up with your new friends over a couple of drinks. Luckily, these convention centers have some wonderful cafés and restaurants close by:
Here are our suggestions on how to get behind the wheel of a rental car with extra cash in your pocket:
Oxford knows how to dazzle. You could hang out for a week or two here and hardly scratch the surface. If you'd like to experience as much as possible in this metropolis, a rental car is a must. Bear in mind that city driving usually comes with tight streets and even tighter parking spaces. But don't worry — a compact or mini car can make this a lot easier to manage. If you're aiming to leave the city behind you and check out the forests that Oxford is renowned for, you'll probably prefer a rental car with more room to move. A mid-size or full-size SUV will get you around comfortably.
There's more than enough choice when it comes to renting a car in Oxford. From people-movers with plenty of room to spare to agile compacts, you'll find it all here. Choosing your ride depends on how much you'd like to spend and what you intend to do. There are some road trips that are just begging you to splurge on your dream ride, whereas other adventures don't need anything more than an engine and four wheels. What type of car will it be this time?
