Location information for Exeter

Exeter is one of England's most historically significant cities. Founded by the Romans and developed into a southwestern fortification, Exeter is always on the tourist radar due to the plethora of ancient sites both in and around the city. Of course, exploring these landmarks is most commonly done via self-drives. Therefore, visitors should compare car hire deals over the internet before choosing a vehicle.



Exeter is well placed for different types of transportation. Domestic and international travellers can reach the city via Exeter Airport, St. David's Railway Station, Central Railway Station and the M5 motorway. Viewing the surrounding sites must be cost effective, so choosing car hire in Exeter is the only viable choice for tourists on a budget.

Car Hire Exeter

Exeter is close to many fabulous destinations that can be reached by car. Places like Torquay, Dartmouth and Exmouth are only a stone's throw away. Therefore, many of the companies offering car rental in Exeter remain busy throughout the year. These include AbbeyFord, Thrifty, Budget and Hertz.


Like most roads throughout England, Exeter's roads are of a high quality and are well maintained. Even though drizzly rain makes the road slick at times, driving around Exeter and the surrounding countryside is the best way to get from A to B. Don't forget, Devon's rolling countryside also makes for stunning scenic drives.

Things To See and Do

England contains its share of beaches, and several are found a short distance from Exeter. Less than 15kms from the city, Exmouth and Dawlish Warren are some of the UK's best southwestern beaches. Totnes is an old English market town 25kms south of Exeter. Visitors can also spend a day swimming and shopping in beautiful Torquay, just 20 minutes by car from the city.

Best Time To Visit

Visit Exeter between the months of May and September, as the temperatures range from 16°C to 21°C on average, and rainfall is sporadic. Travelling to the area's beaches, resort towns and villages around Exeter is perfect at this time. Avoid January, however, as it is generally the coldest and wettest month of the year.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
