With its magnificent cathedral and an intriguing network of underground passages dating back to the 14th Century, Devon’s county town is a great place to visit in its own right. However, car rental will give you access to the region’s other nearby attractions as well.
Exeter is a great base from which to explore South-West England. Car hire will allow you to drive over to Dartmoor or Exmoor to enjoy a countryside walk – whether a short family stroll or something a little more challenging – and the two national parks also offer a host of other activities, including cycling, horse riding and climbing.
The area’s coastline is of course another major draw. From Exeter, you can easily get to the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where you can hunt for fossils or just simply relax and take in the beautiful cliffs and beaches.
North Devon's UNESCO Biosphere Reserve is another slice of nature that’s just a short drive away. At its heart lies Braunton Burrows, the largest sand dune system in the United Kingdom.
Exeter van hire
Alternatively, you may need to hire a vehicle for practical reasons. If you’re moving to or from Exeter then one way car or van hire might be the order of the day. Fortunately, with Europcar, you are able to collect a vehicle from one of our hire locations and drop it off at another.
You may well want to hire a van for a few days if you’ve got quite a bit you need to do, but you can also hire by the hour. Taking the latter option can help keep costs down when you only have one or two trips to make.
