Car & Van Hire in Northumberland

Enterprise car hire locations in Northumberland

Northumberland is England’s northernmost county and is bordered to the east by the North Sea, which forms a 103-km coastline. It is also the most sparsely populated. Water activities are aplenty for visitors and residents who want to explore the county. The location of Northumberland on the Scottish border made it a site for many historic battles between England and Scotland. Northumberland’s landscape is another reason the region is a tourist magnet. The coastline is low and flat while the north-western part is very mountainous, meaning there is a vast diversity in outdoor activities. At Enterprise Rent-A-Car, you can hire a suitable vehicle to go camping, sightseeing or traverse the countryside. Enterprise has a branch throughout Northumberland, such as in Morpeth and Birtley, meaning you don’t have to look very far for the perfect ride.

Our Vehicles For Hire In Northumberland

The kind of journey you are planning will influence your choice of car. When taking a camping trip for several nights, for example, you need a vehicle that can accommodate all the essentials such as a tent, stove and utensils. If the trip involves fishing or other outdoor hobbies, then your car must provide sufficient space to haul your gear. In other instances, you may need to hook a boat or camper to the back of your ride. Such a journey demands an SUV or people carrier, both which provide a lot of interior space, as well as in the boot.

Enterprise also provides a range of cars. The options include compact, standard and economy. If it’s a simple family drive to the National Park, then an intermediate or small compact is ideal, depending on how many individuals are going.
