If your trip to Swindon is all sorted out but your itinerary is a bit on the empty side, we can give you a few hints and tips.
Stop by Wyvern Theatre. It's one sight you'll find on most travelers' must-do lists. Museum of the Great Western Railway and Swindon Designer Outlet are also nearby and worth a detour.
Put some extra gas in the tank, because there are some great reasons to get out and explore beyond Swindon. They include Covered Market in Oxford — a tempting road-trip destination just 25 miles away. Exeter College is also a popular stop.
We've pulled together a list of all the tricks of the trade to help you keep more money in your pocket:
A rental car allows you to get around the best sights easily in Swindon. If you're traveling on a shoestring and want to make your budget go further, a mini or a compact is an excellent option. These zippy cars are affordable to run and a cinch to park. If you're traveling with the family, a full-size car will give you plenty of space.
First of all, there's a broad range of both high-end and economy vehicles to rent in Swindon. What you end up opting for will depend on your budget and the activities you've got planned. Specialty vehicles are hard to beat if you're all about mod cons and comfort. If you're splashing out, why not grab a fully kitted-out SUV, or perhaps a fancy mid-sized vehicle? On the other hand, if you're just after a car to get you around town as cheaply as possible, you're better off going with an economy compact vehicle (or something else that won't burn a hole in your wallet).
