The historic and picturesque city of Durham sits at the heart of an extraordinary county where car hire allows you to experience the breathtaking countryside at its best.
Renting a car in Durham will allow you to enjoy some of the wide ranging experiences this picturesque area has to offer. For nature fans, Hamsterley Forest provides over 5,500 acres of towering conifers, streams, nature trails, picnic areas and a forest drive, while the Forest-in-Teesdale is home to England's highest waterfall.
Lovers of history or those on a family day out can hire a car in Durham and visit the open air museum at Beamish, where costumed folk bring the town to life and you can experience the pit village, farm, school and coal mine as they once were.
The beach at Seaham, meanwhile, promises sea air and relaxation, as well as being home to an award-winning spa hotel, Seaham Hall.

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.
