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.

Transport

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.

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 CompareCarHire.co.uk 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?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

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).
