Car hire in Guernsey
Hiring a car in Guernsey
Guernsey, the second-largest of the Channel Islands, offers a completely unique experience to visitors. While it is not technically part of the UK, it has a feeling of Britishness running through its veins, but manages to a exude an impression of being abroad because of its closeness to France. There are very few other places in the world that occupy this duplicitous space.
The island is home to 27 different bays to explore, each with stunning stretches of golden sand and spectacular sea views. It also offers visitors the chance to explore breathtaking cliffs, delightful cobbled streets, impressive architecture and a rich military history. Driving around the coastal circuit that makes up Guernsey is a treat for everyone and is one of the best ways to explore what makes the island so special.

They’ll ask you to fill in your paperwork and then hand you the keys, leaving you to start your holiday and explore what the island has to offer.
