Car rental branch informationOur Victoria car rental office couldn’t be more conveniently located – right next door to the coach station and very close to the mainline train and Tube stations.
We’re sure you’ll want to spend some time enjoying the sights of the capital and with Buckingham Palace and Harrods just down the road, you couldn’t be better placed. However, sometimes an escape from the city can be just what the doctor ordered.
Just an hour and a half’s drive from the station, you’ll find Brighton and Eastbourne on the south coast. Heading southwest on the A3 motorway, you can be in the beautiful South Downs National Park in around the same time. Heading west is also easy from Victoria – Reading is 50 miles by car and Oxford's "dreaming spires" are just 65 miles away.
