The most easterly point in Britain, the Suffolk town of Lowestoft is tucked away on the North Sea coast and offers splendid beaches. Booking car hire in Lowestoft allows you to break away from the coast and see the magnificent Norfolk Broads.

Hiring a car in Lowestoft also makes it a doddle to move around the town with ease...

Many towns and cities in Britain claim historic roots, but Lowestoft is certainly one of the oldest sites of human habitation anywhere in the UK. A recent discovery of flint tools dates occupation here back to hundreds of thousands of years ago. Lowestoft, however, is better known for its Victorian seaside splendour than its ancient history and families have flocked to the Suffolk coast for decades for a healthy dose of sea air and refreshing sea bathing. 

Situated in the very north of the county, just minutes from the Norfolk border, Lowestoft is a great base for explorations. From the serenity of the Norfolk Broads to the broad sands of the area's beaches, the region is packed with nature reserves, coastal trails, holiday parks and historic towns and villages - golden family memories are made every minute of every day in this picturesque part of England. 

Before you jump in your hire car, eager to explore the best of the east, check out Lowestoft and its many attractions. A visit to the beach is a must of course; fish and chips merely a recommendation. See the Royal Plain Fountains that dance and delight youngsters during hot summer days and take a promenade along the piers, tracing the footsteps of the Victorians who blazed the holiday trail to Lowestoft. 

A number of guided and do-it-yourself tours also offer interesting insights into the history and maritime heritage of this town by the sea. When you've discovered all you want to know about Lowestoft, there are many pleasant cafés, bars and restaurants in which to rest your weary feet and enjoy some fresh local produce. 

Hitting the open road is easy if you arrange car rental in Lowestoft. You can collect your pre-booked vehicle at a downtown location and be in the driving seat within minutes. Finding a great deal on car hire is also a breeze; simply enter your requirements into TravelSupermarket's search tool and we'll show you the best rates.
