Why rent a car in Exeter with Rentalcars.com?

Look no further than Rentalcars.com next time you need cheap car hire in Exeter. Whether you want a prestige car for a wedding or a practical car for exploring the city, you will find a wide range of cars (from suppliers like Hertz, Avis and Europcar) on our site. We deal with car hire companies in Exeter directly, so we can secure cheap prices and exclusive rates you won’t find anywhere else. We take the stress out of hiring a car by quickly comparing prices and displaying all the important information you need upfront — meaning no nasty surprises when you get to the pick-up counter.

Top Tips

  • The M5 and the A30 into Exeter can get very congested, especially on Friday evenings and during the summer months.
  • If travelling on rural single-track roads outside of the city, keep an eye out for passing spaces. If one is on the left then you pull in, but if one is on the right the other car pulls in.
  • Roads in the centre of Exeter tend to have parking restrictions, but there are plenty of designated car parks.

Which companies offer best value in Exeter?

We know how important it is to trust the company you are renting with. To help you make your mind up, we show ratings and reviews submitted by previous customers next to each listing — so you can see how each company compares in terms of customer satisfaction and overall value for money. If you are looking for car hire with no hidden fuel charges, book a car with a full-to-full fuel policy; as long as you refill the tank before dropping the car off, you won’t pay a penny extra for fuel. Plenty of suppliers offer cars with this policy in Exeter.

Day trips from Exeter

Dartmoor National Park: A 30-minute drive from Exeter is Dartmoor National Park. This wild landscape is made up of granite tors, heather-carpeted moorland and quintessential villages. If you love to walk, cycle or horse ride, there are miles of paths to explore. There are also a number of climbing and bouldering options, as well as plenty of hidden geocaching sites.

Killerton: Killerton is a National Trust stately home just a 25-minute drive from Exeter. This 200-year-old house, set in a landscaped garden, was owned by the Acland family. In the 1970s, it was left to the National Trust. Killerton is also home to a collection of period costumes dating back to the 18th century. If you’re a foodie, you can book into the award-winning restaurant and enjoy delicious food — most of which is grown on the estate.

Lyme Regis: Just under an hour from Exeter is Lyme Regis: a pretty seaside town in the neighbouring county of Dorset. A favourite of Jane Austen, this traditional town is brimming with great restaurants, coastal paths and a pretty harbour. There are also four beaches to choose from where you can explore rock pools, sunbathe and build a sand castle.
