The town of Oakham is also home to the Great Hall, which boasts an unusual collection of horseshoes. Some are particularly elaborate, having been donated by royalty. The horseshoe features on the county coat of arms. Flitteriss Park is also a place worth visiting with car hire in Rutland. The farm lies just east of Overton Park and is the highest point in the county. Great views an be enjoyed here.

Rutland Water lies at the center of the county and is best reached by car rental in Rutland. It is about the same size as Lake Windermere in the Lake District and serves as a nature reserve. Bird watchers will appreciate it here as there are large numbers of wildfowl and ospreys.

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.

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).
