Car Hire

For those who require their own transport there are many reliable Car Hire companies in Bournemouth. Our Student Services staff will be pleased to advise you.

Driving Licences issued by member-states of the European Economic Area (European Community countries plus Liechtenstein, Iceland and Norway) are valid in Great Britain. Students from other countries who have valid full licences or International Driving Permits may normally drive in Britain for up to one year without further formality.

It is important to note that it is a serious offence to drive any kind of vehicle without a driving license, a vehicle license and a motor insurance policy valid in the United Kingdom.

Cycle Hire

Many students find it most convenient to hire bicycles for the duration of their courses. Our Student Services staff will be pleased to make the arrangements for you.

Beryl bikes and e-scooters are a great way for students to get around town.  Download the app and start your ride. ​​​​​​​Beryl Bikes
