Sunday car rental, Evesham? Stratford Upon Avon

I am trying to rent a car on a Friday and return on Sunday. Problem is no one is open to returns on Sundays that I can find. All the major companies out of SUA, Oxford or anywhere I can find are closed. I plan to take the train from Wales into Stratford Upon Avon on Friday and stay in Chipping Campden for 2 nights to drive around a bit. Then take the train to London on Sunday.

I found Evesham car hire but they aren't replying to my emails. So I am kind of stuck. Anyone have any other ideas where I could go or know of any other rental companies?

Thanks!

Where in Wales are you starting from?

Have you considered Birmingham International Airport?

You could also drive your car to Heathrow, return it, and then take the tube in. Most car hire places near the airport will be open on Sunday.

I am a complete newbie to UK driving, so I am hesitant to go to Heathrow or anywhere on main highways ;)

I'll be coming from Aberystwyth, Wales. I emailed Evesham last week, maybe they are closed for holiday.

Actually, speaking as someone who was once a "newbie" on UK roads, highways are the easiest to drive--you just go in a straight line. No roundabouts, no staying on the "correct" side of the road, no right/left turn confusion.

Heathrow rentals are well signed, and you should be traveling with either a GPS device or a navigator with a good map.

The rental car companies are well signed, and provide directions.

You can look on this site...

As you're a self confessed newbie, please read the relevant sections of the highway code before driving on UK roads:

Have you tried Robson Goss ? http://www.robgos.com/ They are based between Stratford upon Avon & Moreton in Marsh, - and just a 10 minute drive away from Chipping Campden. If you look on their FAQ link they may be able to answer some of the questions you raise as it mentions travelling to them from Stratford train station. They also appear to be flexible on rental returns etc....

I hope that helps.
