Since it was awarded city status during the Queen's Jubilee, Chelmsford has become an even more desirable location for a short break. Not only is there an abundance of activities to keep you busy, you're also only a 35 minute drive away from London; hire a car in Chelmsford and enjoy a day in the capital as well as exploring the exceptional Essex county city. A short drive or walk from the city centre, you'll find one of our branches on Robjohns Road - a prime location for starting your trip the right way: behind the wheel and taking in the views.
Chelmer Park is a great place to get away from the buzz of city life and just relax with nature; with a play area for the kids and a range of courts and pitches to enjoy a spot of tennis or football, it's a prime outdoor activity location. Hiring a car in Chelmsford lets you enjoy the outdoors before nipping back into the city for some cultural experiences like Chelmsford Cathedral, a colourful jewel at the heart of Chelmsford. Continue exploring Chelmsford's heritage by stopping at Rayleigh Mount, a haven for the nearby wildlife delivering truly stunning views.
Rent a car in Chelmsford to make sure you see the interesting local history of the city at the Chelmsford Museum, a particular favourite for history fanatics. In keeping with the engaging exhibits of the museum, Hylands House and Estate is a fantastic way to bring history alive. After all that, why not take a trip to see one of the best zoos in Europe? Colchester Zoo has over 250 species in its care, and will be loved by large families or by the lone traveller alike.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
