Dorchester Guide

Dorchester is a town in the county of Dorset in England. It is a historic market town with ties to Roman times. There is a rich history here and a variety of activities and attractions to enjoy during your stay. Car hire in Dorchester allows you the freedom to explore the town and its surrounding areas.

The central area in Dorchester is the Town Pump. Situated next to the large clock tower and Dorchester's Corn Exchange there is the town's information board, which has details of the great historic walks throughout town. There are many walks to be enjoyed, depending on what you'd like to see.

Through out the town you will notice the beautiful 18th century architecture, large paths and busy shopping streets. The history of the place dates back to the Iron Age, which is evident in the Maiden Castle. With car rental in Dorchester drive a few miles south to reach the Castle.

Near the castle is the Dorset County Museum which has items that were found in and around Maiden Castle on show. The Roman Town House is a preserved building in town dating back from the Roman times. A lot of artefacts found here are also on display at the museum.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
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). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
