Oxford to Rye

Jump to last reply

On the first Saturday in August we plan to take the train from Oxford to Ashford Intl. Train Station. We will then rent a car in Ashford and drive to Rye. (I think we could pick up a car in Hastings but that would mean another change of trains at Ashford and a return journey back to Rye)
Does this sound like the best plan for train travel/car rental from Oxford to Rye?

We don't want to drive from Oxford as it is confusing to get out of Oxford and we feel nervous about driving thru traffic congestion as we get closer to the metropolitan area.

Will we have any problem picking up a car on a Saturday? Are there fewer trains on the weekend? Should we book our train travel online from the U.S. or would it be less expensive to buy at a station in UK? Would BritRail pass save us money?
Thanks for all help.
