Just one hour's drive from London is the picturesque town of Bedford. With its winding streets and Victorian settings, this is a town brimming with British charm. It also offers visitors many places to see and explore, from ancient castles to wildlife parks, along with numerous shops and restaurants.
Bedford is also a place to unwind. A weekend away could spell a leisurely stroll in a wide-open park, or perhaps a picnic out on the green. This is a town that prides itself on conserving the countryside, and it shows. There's also a regular market that dates as far back as 850 years. Depending on the day, there may be a farmers market or areas that sell gourmet foods and handmade items.
Enterprise is conveniently located in three areas in Bedford; Luton Airport, Milton Keynes Newport Pagnell (1 The Green), and Milton Keynes Central (c/o Pennings Accident Repair). All these places can easily be accessed by bus or train, and via these means, it will take on average about 35 minutes to arrive at the branch.
The process of car and van hire takes moments on the Enterprise online booking system. Customers can easily reserve the car they want, without having to call or go into an Enterprise branch. For a way to save money, particularly if a lot of driving is going to be done, choose an economy vehicle. These cars are fuel-efficient, so return more miles per gallon than ordinary cars. It's also good to know that these vehicles are kinder to the environment. As for space, an economy vehicle can seat four passengers, with boot space for three bags. Their fuel efficiency makes them ideal for travelling great distances, or for when the car will be rented for long periods of time.
When renting a van, peace of mind is paramount – after all, a van is usually needed for heavy-duty tasks. Enterprise understands this and keeps all their vans in prime condition. Each vehicle is subjected to a preventative maintenance programme, and must pass a detailed inspection before being released for rental. On the rare occasion that difficulties are experienced with a vehicle, Enterprise also provides 24/7 roadside assistance. Learn more about Enterprise van hire.
When it comes to cars, Enterprise has a broad range to suit all tastes and needs, from fuel-efficient vehicles to those with additional space. There are also stylish, two-seater sports cars, which are ideal for individuals or couples. For those with families or who happen to be travelling with a number of people, Enterprise also have five-seater cars available. These not only provide plenty of space for passengers, but with boots that can contain up to four bags, these cars are great for those on holiday or using the vehicle to see off family and friends at the airport.
