Find cheap car hire in Torquay with the help of TravelSupermarket and relax in one of England's premier sun, sea and sand hotspots. This glorious town on the English Riviera has it all, though you'll want to hop in your car to see more of divine Devon.

When you book car rental, Torquay becomes a fantastic starting point for beach and countryside adventures in the south west of England...

Do you want to know why south Devon's English Riviera, on which Torquay sits so prettily, draws comparisons with its French counterpart? There are a number of reasons, such as the houses and restaurants that mask the gentle cliffs, the rustling green fronds of palm trees that contrast so beautifully with the azure waters, the sunshine that graces the sky and kisses the skin, and the bracing seaside walks that will cheer any glum soul. It was the Victorians that first drew comparisons of this part of England with places such as Nice, St Tropez and Cannes - and the influx of visitors hasn't really slowed since the Victorian boom times. While it might not have the bronzed bodies, designer boutiques and more-certain sunshine of the Cote d'Azur in France, this part of Devon is a guaranteed hit with holidaymakers of all ages. 

Be sure to tick off the highlights of holidays in the south west: an afternoon cream tea; fish and chips by the water's edge; and a dip in the waves (even if it's just your toes). And then find out what makes Torquay unique, such as the walking trail that explores the life of the town's famous writer daughter, Agatha Christie, the gorgeous Royal Terrace Gardens and August's Torbay Royal Regatta. 

The best beaches within Torquay include Torre Abbey Sands, Meadfoot Beach, and Beacon Cove.

Collecting your hire car in Torquay is easy. You can make savings when you book in advance and arrange pick-up at one of the convenient locations in and around downtown Torquay. Find a great deal today using the search tool on TravelSupermarket.
