Location information for Plymouth

Car hire in Plymouth

The UK city of Plymouth has a wealth of history that dates back as far as the Bronze Age, as well as lots of monuments and attractions that attest to this. The city sits between the Plym and Tamar rivers, which flow into a sheltered bay called Plymouth Sound. Exploring the surrounding region of Devon and western England is easy with a rental car, and the best rates can be found if you compare cheap car hire with us online today.

Why visit

The climate in western England is milder than in the rest of the country. This fact, coupled with the fantastic beaches, tourism sights and natural attractions, has long encouraged Brits to holiday here. The iconic Hoe, nightlife, shopping and fine dining make the city an ideal base from which to explore the wider region. Motorists with their own vehicles can access regional beaches and Dartmoor National Park easily.


Plymouth has had its public transport connections reduced over the past few years. Mainline and regional train services have been cut back, while the city’s airport closed in 2011. In contrast, an excellent road network links Plymouth to Exeter, Cornish beaches and Dartmoor. The A38 runs west to the Tamar Bridge and Bodmin, and east to Exeter and the M5. Anywhere outside the city is most conveniently reached if you book Plymouth car hire with us.

What to see and do

Within the city itself, the 1660s Royal Citadel and the Hoe are must-visit sites. Tregantle Beach, Whitsand Bay and Cawsand are just across the Devon-Cornwall border and only short trips away by car. The resorts of Salcombe, Paignton and Torquay are to the East, but no visit to Devon would be complete without sampling Dartmoor’s delights. Car rental in Plymouth is the best way of reaching prehistoric menhir standing stones and burial grounds, stunning scenery and the heritage town of Ashburton.
