Guide

Great Yarmouth, located on the Norfolk coast, in England, is a traditional seaside resort with wide sandy beaches and a promenade full of amusement arcades, restaurants and wet weather attractions. The area also includes 21 beautiful scenic villages located along the coast or inland in the countryside, and not forgetting the peacefulness of The Norfolk Broads national park.

The Norfolk Broads is a popular attraction of water, fen, marshes and woodland. This area of land exhibits many rare species of flora and fauna and is Britain's largest protected wetland.  Canoeing, sailing, rowing, motor boating, fishing, bird watching, walking and sight-seeing are just some of the activities to enjoy.

For those who like history, the Nelson museum has a display of memorabilia of the life and times of Lord Nelson, tracing his career from his Norfolk childhood to his famous sea battles. At the Tolhouse Museum and Old Prison visitors can experience life in a ‘real’ 19th century gaol house and see what punishment fitted the crime 150 years ago. Great Yarmouth also possesses one of the most complete medieval town walls in England.

The Great Yarmouth area has a wide range of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets, including; fresh seafood, steaks, curries, burgers and the traditional seaside favourite, fish and chips. For those who like sport, Yarmouth stadium hosts regular Greyhound and Motor Racing events. There is also horse racing at the nearby Yarmouth racecourse.

Four miles from Yarmouth is Caister Castle with its moat and tower built in 1432. Caister Castle also has the largest private collection of motor vehicles in Great Britain with cars dating back to 1893. For animal lovers, Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens contains a collection of Asian mammals, birds and reptiles in pleasantly landscaped gardens.

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).
