KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Exeter

  • Use the cheap rental cars in Exeter to travel more flexibly between the various areas of the city. You must be at least 21 years old in order to rent a car from any of the Exeter car rentals. However, Exeter and all of England allow drivers who are at least 18 years old to have a license and operate a vehicle. For people between the ages of 18 and 20 who want to rent a car from any of the locations in the city, the majority of rental car agencies in Exeter levy an underage cost. You must have a major credit or debit card on hand when picking up your automobile and a valid driver's license.
  • Make sure you adhere to Exeter's stringent child seat regulations if you are driving a rented car with your child(ren). These regulations mandate that children under the age of two must always ride in a rear-facing children's seat with a harness. A booster seat, child car seat, or other approved restraint device must always be used to transport children between the ages of 2 and 8 years. These safety equipment can be simply obtained from any of the cheap rental cars in Exeter. However, each of these particular services will require a separate daily fee from you.
  • In Exeter, renting an electric vehicle is convenient. More than ten electric vehicle (EV) charging stations can be found in the city. These Level 2 and Level 3 EV charging stations are close to one another and offer both Level 2 and Level 3 charging. As a result, you won't need to worry about driving your rental electric vehicle in any part of the city because you can recharge it at any station that is easily reachable. If you are unfamiliar with where V charging stations are located, you can ask your chosen rental car provider for that information.
  • Exeter is one of the most beautiful cities to visit in the UK, and a great way to get the most out of the experience is to hire a car, which you can do right here through KAYAK. You’ll be free to visit some of the city’s most famous landmarks, like Exeter Cathedral, which dates back to the 13th century. Rougemont Gardens is a scenic place to relax, and you should definitely explore the Exeter Underground Passages dating back to medieval times. Elsewhere, you can use your hire car to head southwards to Haldon Forest Park, a 3,500-hectare woodland area along the Exe estuary.
  • The city has its own international airport, which is only a 14-minute drive to the centre of town, so it couldn’t be easier or more convenient to access car hire in Exeter when you arrive. The car rental area is just outside Arrivals after you’ve passed through baggage collection and customs. Simply walk outside the building, turn left and you’ll see it right there in front of you. All the major car hire companies in the UK have desks here, from where you can pick up your Exeter car hire.
  • Like many of the UK’s cities, Exeter’s traffic can present some congestion challenges. There are certain roads it’s best to avoid if you’re wanting to visit all the tourist attractions, like Bridge Road and the Moor Lane roundabout. Much of the congestion is due to the historic road network, a legacy of it being such an old city. Also be careful of cyclists, as there is a strong drive towards greening the city, and the council has been encouraging the use of ecobikes and other means of transport.
  • Rush hours mainly affect the main arterials running through the suburbs of Marsh Barton, Alphington, Cowley and Heavitree. These are the busiest roads in the city. The M5 can also become a bit too gridlocked at times, so make your way around that if you need to as well. This applies particularly between the hours of 07:00 and 09:00, and then again from around 16:30 to 18:00. Seasonal effects aren’t very significant, so you can expect this to be the pattern at any time of year you visit.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Exeter for C$ 88 or less
  • Book your rental car in Exeter at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Exeter are around 71% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Mini rental cars in Exeter are around -13% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Exeter

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Exeter?

    If you’re intending to fully explore the architectural attractions and historic sites in the city of Exeter itself, then your best bet will be to hire the proverbial city car. Choose an economical compact model, which will also aid with efficient fuel consumption if you’re spending a lot of time in city traffic in low gear. If you’re arriving with the intention of exploring the outlying areas of the city and rural Devon in general, then you can go for an MPV or a larger sedan, or even a minibus if you’re travelling in a bigger group. The weather in summer is also balmy enough to opt for a convertible. Take these factors into account when booking car hire in Exeter.

  • What’s the speed limit in Exeter?

    There are quite a few areas of Exeter where you’ll need to make sure you stay below the 20mph speed limit, so it’s important to keep checking for signs as you’re driving through town. Other areas in the town are zoned at 30mph, while you can travel from Exeter to smaller towns at 70mph. Be aware of the large number of speed cameras in the area too, particularly on the A380.

  • Where are the best places to park in Exeter?

    The city council operates several parking areas across the city, including Princesshay 3 and Magdalen Street car park, right in the city centre.

Staff were great, and drop off at the train station appreciated. A ‘compact SUV’ is misleading though. It was a hatchback and in no way big enough for 5 pax and 3 big cases which is what I thought I’d booked. Make the vehicle descriptions clearer. Otherwise great
