Barnstaple Guide

The town of Barnstaple is located at the Taw River's lowest crossing point in southwestern England. Barnstaple may be a small town, but it certainly contains a large amount of attractions, all of which are easily accessible by car rental in Barnstaple.

Car hire in Barnstaple is definitely the most ideal way to explore this town situated at least an hour's drive away from the nearest major cities. Local Thrifty, Enterprise, and Ford offices are just a few of the places where visitors can quickly find cheap car hire in Barnstaple.

As North Devon's main shopping area, Barnstaple contains a fair amount of chain stores, but the town's most unique shopping is found at Pannier Market and Butchers Row. Butchers Row was first established in 1855, but despite the name, only two of its shops are butchers. The other shops on Butchers Row are fishmongers, a florist, a greengrocer, a baker, and a delicatessen.

The Pannier Market which runs the entire length of Butchers Row was also built in 1855. The market is open on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and was recently named one of the United Kingdom's top 10 food markets.

Other Barnstaple attractions include the historic churches of St Peter's Church and St Anne's Chapel, the Queen's Theatre where William Shakespeare once performed, and the Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon. Most of these attractions are situated along the Barnstaple Heritage Trail, a relaxing and scenic walking tour of the town.

Frequently asked questions

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
