Right on the western tip of Cornwall, the most south-westerly county of England, Penzance is a lively and romantic spot that is shrouded in mythology. Book car hire in Penzance to get around this wonderful holiday spot and to see more of picture-perfect Cornwall.

Hiring a car in Penzance gives you the freedom to see the highlights of this popular destination - plan carefully, there are plenty of them...

Known for boating, fishing, swimming, a castle-crowned tidal island, pirates, smugglers, and the eternally captivating spectacle of Mazey Day, this historic port is drenched in tales of the past that lure visitors in like mermaids singing sailors on to the rocks. 

Precious family holiday memories are made every day in Penzance, especially when the weather heats up and the sunshine lures Brits down to Cornwall. If you plan to visit in summer, booking car rental in Penzance as early as possible is recommended to get the vehicle you want - plus you can make savings when you book in advance. 

This is traditional Cornwall at its finest: pretty and safe beaches dot the area; you can catch the drifting smell of fresh-from-the-water seafood being cooked; boats bob in the harbour; stone cottages line the seafront; and independent boutiques welcome visitors off streets that rise and fall like winter waves. 

Clinging to the hillside that overlooks Mount's Bay and with sublime views of nearby St Michael's Mount, Penzance is everything you want it to be. There are museums and art galleries, an eclectic mix of cafés and restaurants, walking and cycling routes, and surf spots. It's easy to reach this part of Cornwall too, as trains terminate right in Penzance. Visitors from Aberdeen can even hop on a train in the morning and be in Penzance by night-time - at just over 13 hours it's the longest single train journey in the UK. Of course visitors arriving by train will be eager to book a car to make the most of their time here.
