Hiring a car in Jersey

Pick up your hire car at Jersey airport and enjoy this subtle blend of the best of British and the best of France, all contained within one glorious island.

60-second guide to Jersey

In its own head...

"With our perfect combination of British charm and French class we really are a world apart from the mainland.”

...but more realistically

It is indeed true that the Anglo-French influences on the island make it an alluring destination, with glorious beaches, stirring coastal walks and fantastic food.

The vibe

Laid back and lovely. You won't be tearing it up till the early hours but you will feast like a king on lashings and lashings of cream.

The natives

Jersey is famed for its hospitality - you'll feel like one of the family in no time.

The weather

There's more chance of sun here than on the British mainland, but Jersey does average 33 inches of rain per year so pack a brolly just in case.

The local speciality

Cream or potatoes - take your pick. Or you can combine them both for total comfort food pleasure.

The celebrity

Fictional TV detective Bergerac, of course. The series was a mainstay of BBC drama in the 80s and gave the impression that Jersey was a hotbed of international crime. It isn't.

Did you know?

Over 300 islanders were sentenced to the prison and concentration camps of mainland Europe during the occupation of Jersey in World War II. Twenty died as a result.

They say...

"It's hard to imagine a more peaceful and tranquil island. Yet Jersey's landscape and the character of its people are forged by centuries of battles, exploration, struggle and reinvention." - Jersey Tourist Board
