Cheap car sharing in Hounslow – The Alternative to Car Hire

Cheap car sharing in Hounslow – The Alternative to Car Hire

Over in far west London is the borough of Hounslow. The cheap car sharing in Hounslow that we offer means it’s easy to visit the deer in Richmond Park or escape the capital completely to go for a wander around the endless green beyond the M25. There’s plenty to do within its borders as well with some beautiful parks and a choice of places to indulge in some shopping and renting a Zipcar is great way to visit them all.

Our service lets you rent cars and vans by the hour so whether you’re wanting to get around the borough or head outside it, having access to our car club is always useful. It’s a great alternative to traditional car hire too. By using a car sharing model, we can offer more convenient locations and increased flexibility, while still being affordable.

Where to rent a Zipcar

There are clusters of Zipcars throughout Hounslow so it’ll never be a long trip to get to one when you want it. If you’re starting your journey from Chiswick you’re in luck. There’s plenty of Zipcars here with them being placed outside Chiswick Park, Turnham Green and Stamford Brook stations. Further west in Brentford there’s more cars with a couple down the road from the station and another just by Kew Bridge too.

Over in Isleworth you can find a couple of Zipcars which are also just over the river from the Old Deer Park in Richmond, while you can find another one just up the road from Hounslow Central station.

When you’ve got your plans in order, you’ll want to know where the nearest Zipcar is. All you need to do is go online and find the vehicle you want, book it out and then unlock it with your car club membership card or with the mobile app. With 60 miles travel included in the price along with any congestion charges and insurance costs, you’re all ready to start your drive.

Why Choose Zipcar

  • Zipcar is a car cub - the world's leading car club network currently operating in London, Bristol, Oxford, Cambridge and Maidstone (and another 50+ cities across Europe and North America).
  • Joining Zipcar gives you access to the car or van you need when you need it, perfectly maintained but with none of the hassle or expense of ownership.
  • Zipcar is far simpler and more convenient than conventional car hire. Once a member, when you need a car, just choose your make and model from the great selection parked around your local area; get in and drive off.
  • "One Zipcar helps take 17 privately owned vehicles off the road in the UK."*

4 Simple Steps to Zipcar Freedom

4 Simple Steps to Zipcar Freedom

Things to do

Cars give people freedom to travel and explore, while making chores much easier. Unfortunately they’re also expensive when you consider insurance and tax as well. It’s just not feasible for many, but we don’t think that’s a reason they can’t travel like everyone else. Our service means anyone can get themselves car without stress or destroying their bank balance.

There’s plenty to do in Hounslow itself. Gunnersbury Park is the perfect place for a summer picnic or just a simple stroll for some fresh air. The park used to be a grand estate, so you can wander around the picturesque selection of trees and plants, the tranquil lake, which is bordered by a folly, and the museum. For sportier types, the park has tennis courts, rugby and football pitches, a cricket square and a pitch and putt mini golf course.

If historic buildings are your thing, you could also make the trip to Osterley House, a sumptuous mansion where you can take a tour or just enjoy the grounds surrounding it.

Of course there’s more to the UK than London, and Hounslow is a great place to start if you want to get out past the M25. Taking the car out west along the M3, within 40 minutes you could be in the Surrey town of Camberley. It’s ideal for keen shoppers as The Mall has all your favourite high street shops under one roof. A short term car hire is perfect for filling up the car with goodies before heading back to London.

If you’d rather get out into the countryside instead, you could head further south to Albury Park or if you’re looking for something a bit more urban you could visit Guildford. There’s a lot to do here ranging from museums and galleries to shops and restaurants. If you want somewhere to take the family for the day and keep everyone satisfied, it’s a great place to drive down to – especially as it’s only 40 minutes away.

The Zipcar car sharing club is for everyone who wants the freedom of owning a car without the cost or damaging the environment.
