Explore Jersey with Expedia’s Travel Guides to find the best hotels, flights, holiday packages and more!
Secluded coves with soft sand and a shimmering blue sea, interesting independent shops and a fascinating history – Jersey has everything to offer. With over 350 miles of road there is plenty to pack into a visit, and when you hire a car, you’re free to make your own itinerary.
With a hire car in Jersey you can explore at your own pace. Here, roads are quieter, and there’s an island-wide speed limit of 40mph, so you can enjoy the experience and take in the views. You might even spot a Jersey cow! The weather is milder here than on the mainland, and the island enjoys more hours of sunshine. This doesn’t just mean more time to explore – it means that everything looks greener, and flowers are famously plentiful. Visit Jersey Lavender Farm or the award-winning Reg’s Garden, the perfect spot to while away a few hours.
Occupied during World War II, the humbling legacy of the German occupation can be relived at the Jersey War Tunnels. History-buffs will also enjoy the Pallot Steam, Motor and General Museum, which offers steam train rides on selected days and can be accessed conveniently by car. With a hire car, you’re also free to uncover some of the best unspoilt coves, fishing ports and secluded beaches. Beauport beach may off the beaten track, but it’s worth the effort to get to this sheltered sandy beach.
