Bournemouth Airport Car Hire
Bournemouth Airport is easy to find and is located just off the A338. It is well connected to the road network and is under 15 minutes drive from Bournemouth city centre.
Getting here from London takes around 2 hours. From the M25 you follow the M3 south then the M27 west. Those coming from the North and the Midlands should join the A34 at Oxford before turning onto the M3 at Winchester.
If you are travelling to points further east along the coast including Portsmouth, Bognor Regis, Worthing, Brighton and Eastbourne you will follow the M27 which leads into the A27. Those coming from the southwest of the UK such as Dorchester or Lyme Regis should use the A35 and turn onto the A31 at Wimbourne.
Whether you are here on holiday or business it is important to remember that Britian has strict Drink Driving laws. It is easy to forget when in the holiday spirit but the legal limt in the UK is 80mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood, 35mg of alcohol to 100ml of breath or 100mg of alcohol per 100ml of urine.
The police are well within their rights to ask you to take a breath test at the side of the road if they suspect you of being over the legal limit. If you are found to be over this limit then you could potentially lose your licence for up to 12 months, plus face 6 months imprisonment and a fine of £5,000. These are the maximum penalties however.
