Woodbridge Guide

Found in Suffolk, Woodbridge is a town that lies along the river Deben. The town has a population of nearly ten thousand. Mussidan, a town in France, is the twin town of Woodbridge.

The first records of the town's existence come from the tenth century, when it was bought by the then Bishop of Winchester. Due to its position near the coast, it is not surprising that a lot of trade in the town centred on the maritime industry. Boat building, sail making and other maritime concerns helped the town thrive since the Middle Ages.

There are only four tide mills in the UK - special water mills run by tidal movement - and Woodbridge has one of them. Sir Francis Drake himself had some of his famous fighting vessels built in Woodbridge.

The mix of buildings in the town includes examples from the Tudor, Regency and Victorian eras. Even more interesting, especially to those tourists who are fascinated by early history, is the existence of Sutton Hoo, a cluster of grassy mounds. This site has become famous for containing Anglo Saxon treasure that belonged to Raewald, one of the earliest known rulers of England.

Another, less immediately serious claim to fame, is the legend that the rather strenuous route up Drybridge Hill in the town is the hill that the Grand Old Duke of York form the famous English nursery rhyme marched up with his ten thousand men.

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.
