Car Rental in Bath

After arrival at Heathrow we will be traveling to Bradford on Avon by train. We will want to rent a car in Bath. Do you foresee any problems with that plan? What would be the best way to approach this?

Note that most car rental agencies in this area are closed on Sundays and on Saturday afternoons. If you're in Bradford on Avon, Enterprise car rental in Trowbridge is a bit closer than Bath itself and 0.4 miles from the Trowbridge train station. The bigger-name Bath car rental offices are not especially close to Bath Spa train station. Hertz is closest at 1.3 miles from Bath Spa or the Oldfield Park station is closer to that location, 0.3 miles. You can see these on Google Maps.

Hi. Are you planning on driving around Bath? I was there last summer for the first time. The traffic was crazy and a real time sucker. If you're not familiar with the area or driving in England this could be an issue. Just wanted to give you a heads up.

Thank you for the information. We will not be doing a lot of driving in Bath itself. We are just picking up the car there. I didn't realize the Enterprise had a rental agency in Bradford on Avon. I will check it out. Thank you all

I can’t imagine that B on Avon has any car rental place. It’s a small town that whilst pretty enough doesn’t have a lot in it.
