Abbeyford Car Hire is a family run business that has retained its ability to provide a courteous and personal car hire service despite expanding steadily over thirty years. Originally offering rental cars only from Exeter City Centre we now run a fleet of vans, minibuses and people carriers! Our high standards of customer service and vehicle quality enable us to be proud members of the British Vehicle Rental & Leasing Association BVRLA who’s rigid Code of Conduct we adhere to. In 2004 we also added the Practical Car & Van Rental U.K.Practical Car & Van Rental Exeter Airport franchise for Exeter Airport as a subsidiary business to facilitate our expansion and to continue to give a local service with national back-up. Long term contract hire and leasing schemes for both cars and vans can be arranged.

A rental service is now provided to all local train, coach and bus stations plus Exeter International Airport. Regular collections and deliveries are made to local Hotels, Guest Houses and Bed & Breakfast accommodation. We also still have time to service rental requirements for the local community and businesses!

Abbeyford prides itself on not only offering the best rental service but also competitive rates. For clients arriving by train, coach or air, our representatives will meet your arrival with the hire car. This is very efficient and you are on the road quickly as paperwork is prepared in advance. Arrangements will be made to meet you on your return.

We are happy to provide local directions and maps of Devon and parts of Cornwall are provided too. Child seats and boosters are also available along with Satellite Navigation systems. These services are available seven days a week including Sundays and Bank Holidays, by prior arrangement.

Our Insurance Cover is one of the most flexible in the trade accepting drivers from the age of 23 to 75 (older driver's may also be approved). Most international licences are acceptable, and some endorsements and restrictions can be accommodated. Additional Drivers can be added from £12.

Reservations are very easily arranged by email or telephone. We have a comprehensive range of manual and automatic cars with diesel variants, so please specify your preference when making your reservation.

Support is given to the local community. Exeter City F.C. are provided with discounted transport and several matches have been sponsored. Their Schools of Excellence receive substantial financial support too, helping them to develop young talent.
If you have any other queries please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be delighted to answer all your questions.
