Location information for Chelmsford

Chelmsford is a small town in Central Essex that has a colourful history that dates back to more than 800 years ago. The town is famous all over the world for being the birthplace of the radio. This is probably one of the reasons why it attracts its fair share of tourists from all over the world. Arranging for car hire in Chelmsford is a practical move especially if you want to explore the surrounding countryside or if you're looking to take day trips to nearby villages and towns.

But while you're in town, park your car hire in Chelmsford and take a leisurely stroll around the area's most popular attractions. A walk to the town centre will take you to the Shire Hall, one of the oldest and most prominent buildings in town. From the time it was built in 1791 up to the present, the building has been used as Chelmsford's court house. Behind the Shire Hall, you will find the Chelmsford Cathedral. The church is around the same age as the town so it has been around for centuries.

The annual music festival that the town hosts also regularly attracts visitors from all over the country. The V Festival, held during the last week of August, plays host to some of the most popular local and international rock music artists.

Shopping opportunities are mostly located along the town's High Street. A number of international cuisines are also served through the many restaurants and food outlets that dot the area.

After having your fill of the town, take your budget car rental for a trip to London or to the nearby countryside.

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 HireCars.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).
