Location information for Exeter

What makes the city of Exeter an interesting holiday destination is the fact that it has managed to bring together the old and the new through its array of tourist attractions. The city's population is mostly composed of students so you can expect a number of modern entertainment options waiting for you. Arranging for cheap car hire in Exeter is more practical considering that the city is surrounded by lovely countryside that you must also explore during your stay.

In the city centre, you will find a number of attractions that will attract your interest. Because the area is quite compact, you will not need your car rental to get around. A leisurely walk along the city's streets will bring you to noteworthy landmarks such as the St Peter's Cathedral. This church was built where a 7th century monastery once stood. The former Benedictine Priory is also worth visiting. This 900-year-old Elizabethan building was originally used as a guesthouse for monks.

While you're in the city, you shouldn't miss a chance to walk along its underground tunnels that run under the High Street. These tunnels were once used to bring water into the city and are now open to the public. You might also want to explore the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Queen Street for more diverse collections of historical artefacts.

When it comes to shopping opportunities, you'll never run out of options in Exeter. Its Guildhall Shopping Centre houses a wide range of specialty and retail stores that sell practically every type of merchandise. The Quayside is also a must-visit with its outdoor cafes, restaurants and shops that are built from 17th -18th century warehouses.

Take your cheap car hire in Exeter after you have explored the whole city and extend your holiday to day trips to the countryside. Popular destinations include the Port of Topsham, which features a number of Dutch Houses, and the Exmoor National Park.

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).
