Best of British Staycations

We're all guilty of overlooking what's right on our doorstep, but honestly, we in Britain are amazingly lucky to have one of the best-looking doorsteps in the world! If you're booking a British staycation, take a look at the ideas we have put together just for you. We've paired some of the best UK locations to explore with the perfect luxury vehicle for the trip, specially selected from our range of Avis Prestige cars.

Explore Edinburgh and more with Avis Prestige

The New Forest

Head into the New Forest in the superbly comfortable Land Rover Defender D240 HSE 110 before setting up at one of the numerous campsites and exploring the National Park. With ample room for all your camping gear and off-road capabilities (ideal for those country lanes), this luxury British classic 4x4 will make your journey smooth and enjoyable.

Alternatively, take in the stunning scenery and wildlife this part of the UK has to offer from a stylish, Jaguar coupé. Just watch out for the wild New Forest ponies on your travels! If you are happy to drive further afield from your base, but need to fit the family in, choose from our list of Volvos and try something novel, like horse riding or even paddle boarding down on the coast.

With the New Forest under a two-hour drive from the Avis Prestige London Heathrow car hire site, you can be away from the busyness of the city in no time.


The only UK city designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Bath is a beautiful place to experience the incredible history Britain has to offer. Known for its Roman Baths, this is one place to add to your UK-centric bucket list.

Bath is two hours from Birmingham, so hiring a luxury vehicle like the Jaguar I-Pace 400PS SE from our Avis Prestige Birmingham car hire site is a great option. Enjoy the ride in this all-electric, luxury 4x4 - compact enough to navigate the city, but big enough for those extra shopping bags at the end of your trip.

With all the latest parking assistance sensors and screens, manoeuvring an Avis Prestige vehicle into a tight spot is simple and stress-free. Whether you choose a head-turning Porsche, classic Mercedes or road-focussed Range Rover, Avis Prestige has the car for every occasion.

The Cotswolds

Whether you want to make yourself at home in a quaint rural hotel or give glamping a go, you will be surrounded by some of the UK’s finest countryside in the Cotswolds. Take a drive in the luxury car of your choice and enjoy afternoon tea in a picturesque teashop or trek across the fields to see stately homes, castles and even a wildlife park – featuring animals from wolves to giraffes, there’s something for everyone.

Less than a two-hour drive from our Birmingham pick-up point or central London location, book Avis Prestige’s Land Rover Discovery Sport HSE and enjoy the British countryside in all its glory with a luxury 4x4 that is as capable off-road as it is on it.


Steeped in history, York is often named one of the best places to live in the UK so it’s certainly worth a visit. Take a walk along the city walls and meander through the narrow cobbled streets to view the 13th century York Minster Cathedral - an incredible piece of architecture to behold.

Treat yourself and hire a luxury vehicle like Avis Prestige’s Jaguar F-Type R 5.0 Supercharged Coupe and cruise through the north in style from our Manchester car hire location. This sleek sports car will make your York adventure an unforgettable one with its faultless handling and impressive 5-litre V8 engine.


A true city of culture, Edinburgh offers an eclectic mix to please even the most niche of interests. Take a trip up to the famous Edinburgh Castle, sample some local Scottish whisky or even hike up the extinct volcano, Arthur’s Seat. Finally, top it all off with a meal at one of Edinburgh’s four Michelin starred restaurants.

When you’re done with the sights of the city, explore the rugged Scottish Highlands with the Range Rover Velar 3.0 V6 D300 R-Dynamic HSE from Avis Prestige’s car rental in Edinburgh. This large luxury 4x4 will comfortably seat the whole family in style, with room to spare.
