9.2 Excellent28 Aug 2017
Excellent serviceQuality of service from booking to taking the car back was brilliant. Hit traffic on my return to the depot and they were great in arranging for the car to be dropped back the following morning.The BMW 3 series as their luxury range lets them down but at £200/w cheaper than the nearest competitor, it can be forgiven

Cancel my car last minute and I was left stranded in Plymouth with no car. Didn’t even propose to help by calling other venues, had to insist.

Top tips for hiring a car in Plymouth

  • Tackling the sprawling expanse that is the port city of Plymouth is best done with a car. With a car hire in Plymouth, you can really explore this coastal city that reeks of maritime history stretching back to medieval times so sights will be plentiful. You can start with a trip to Plymouth Hoe and the Royal Citadel, both of which share the same stretch of coast and both an easy mile from downtown. After a stop for some tasty seafood, set out on the 30 miles journey into the city’s interior and visit Cotehele House – a well-preserved 16th century estate with a charm of its own.
  • It’s a 50-mile drive to your destination once you land at Exeter Airport and the right choice of vehicle could get your travels off to a splendid start. Booking an advance reservation increases the chance of you getting the right car hire in Plymouth. After you leave Baggage Reclaim at the Arrivals Hall walk across the hall to the Car Hire Area, where staff at companies such as Avis, Hertz and Budget are on hand to retrieve your vehicle.
  • Plymouth is a vibrant educational city with a sizeable student population so expect a fair amount of foot traffic when you’re driving a car hire in Plymouth around the city’s nerve centre, especially at night. The Devon motorway and the A436 control the flow of traffic and are therefore subject to congestion during the day. Downtown, the A374 snakes its way around the city’s heart and is even more vulnerable to gridlock. An early morning or late night start are alternate travel ideas worth considering.
  • By 07:00, the morning rush hour is in full swing and stays that way until about 9:00. Late morning is another great time to set off on a road trip but plan the return carefully to bypass the evening rush hours of 18:00-21:00. The city also has a thriving sports scene so Saturday afternoons and evenings may experience slow traffic areas where games are played.
  • Book your rental car in Plymouth at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Plymouth are around 71% cheaper than other car types, on average
