Exeter’s ancient walls, Gothic cathedral and atmospheric quayside are worth exploring, but with a hire car at your disposal, you’ll be able to discover the outlying countryside in 2024 too. Say hello to day trips to brooding Dartmoor, unspoilt Exmoor and the rugged Jurassic Coast. 

There are plenty of cheap car rental options in Exeter, most of which, including Hertz, Budget, Thrifty and Enterprise, are located between St Thomas and Alphington, just south of the city centre, close to the A377. For those coming in on the mainline from London Paddington, Simple Car Hire has a meet-and-greet service at Exeter St Davids railway station.
