With its wide expanse of sandy, golden beaches and chalk cliffs, Bournemouth has become one of the largest seaside resorts in Dorset. Originally a fishing town, this seaside resort is a favourite with travellers in and outside of the UK.
This is a place known just as much for its Victorian charm as its shopping centres and Grade II listed Victorian Gardens, and for having the UK's first and only coastal activity park. Visitors also come here to see the wildlife by visiting Jurassic Coast, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Enterprise branches are located at Southampton Airport, which gives easy access for travellers arriving at or departing from the airport, Christchurch (107 Barrack Road), Poole (510 Ringwood Road) and Ferndown (441 Wimborne Road ). The Christchurch branch is the closest to the city centre and may be more convenient for those in and around that area.
Enterprise understands that cost-effective car rental is important, and they have provided their customers with various ways to save money. This allows the customer to get the car or van of their choice while cutting back on extra expenditure.
For fuel efficiency, Enterprise have economy cars. These are large enough for four passengers, with a boot space that takes up to three bags. The good thing about these economy cars is that they are big enough for a family, while still allowing drivers to save on the fuel.
