Melton Mowbray Guide

Melton Mowbray is locally known as Melton. The area has a rich history; there are approximately 29 scheduled monuments from ancient times; approximately 705 buildings in the area that are marked as having some sort of architectural or historical interest; 16 sites of special scientific interest and also approximately 12 ancient village sites that are in a deserted state.

The parish church is also a landmark of the area. St. Mary's Church is one of the largest parish churches in Leicestershire. There are parts of the church that date anywhere from the 13th to 15th centuries. However, there is at least one part that dates as far back as 1170

Surprisingly other than the single rail station which has limited service in the evenings and early weekend hours, regular service other times, there is no other transportation for the town and hence having a car is essential for visiting this area.

The town is known for the famous saying, �Painting the town red,� as well as a few other things like pork pies, Stilton Cheese and Melton cloth. Painting the town red is a reference to a particular noble who painted parts of the walls of buildings on High Street with red paint. Melton cloth is a tight woven heavily milled cloth used for things like donkey jackets, and sailor's peacoats. Pork pies, the traditional kind can be purchased in Dickinson's & Morris and Stilton cheese was marketed in Stilton but made in Melton.

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?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.
