Take the train to Newbury and rent from Enterprise. they close at midday though. Can't you get off the train before you reach Hungerford at somewhere that has a rental place?

Oh and a please and thanks go a long way in life and on these forums.

There is electrification work going on on the line from Reading to Newbury/Hungerford on the 4th August so the line is shut for part of your journey. This means you will be on a bus from Theale (nr Reading) to Newbury/Hungerford.

If you leave Paddington at 1007 you will arrive in Newbury at 1126 and Hungerford at 1201. The previuous train, with the same train/bus journey leaves Paddington at 0907.

It might be better to try and rearrange your journey if you can. Enterprize is the nearest car rental to Newbury Station, it is about a ten minute walk from the station. They used to offer to deliver the car to you for the rental but I do not know if that is the case now.

If you consider a taxi from Hungerford to your destination then just to tell you that taxis do not stand at Hungerford Station, you would have to book one in advance.
