Reserved a sedan...got an SUVCons: Got an SUV instead of sedan. There are a lot of narrow roads in the U.K. And I was very uncomfortable driving something big on them. The day before I was to return the vehicle a stone hit the windshield and cracked it. They charged me for it. Had I been in the sedan that I reserved, the stone would have gone right over it. Doubt that I'll rent from Enterprise again!

Top tips for renting a car in Taunton

  • Taunton’s history with military adventure is long indeed. From the days of the Anglo-Saxons and then the Normans on down through the Wars of the Roses, this town has made its mark on the history of Somerset and the entire country. Pack your travel bags and experience some adventures of your own with a hire car in Taunton. The convenience and flexibility they provide is priceless and can only enhance all the memories waiting to be made.
  • Get yourself off to a promising start by hiring a car in Taunton after you land at Exeter Airport, which is 31 miles away from the town square via the M5. The airport hosts a list of providers like Hertz, Budget and Avis, where you can find a vehicle before starting your trip. The Car Hire Centre at Exeter Airport is also conveniently located at the terminal and all you have to do is leave the Baggage Claim area and walk across the floor of the Arrivals Hall to find it.
  • With less than 80,000 residents, Taunton is not a large town, but it certainly experiences its version of rush hour madness during certain morning and evening periods. The town centre boasts an active network of secondary roads, many of which intersect at key points, and this increases the likelihood of vehicular traffic. The opportunities for congestion only increase when you add everyday pedestrians and cycle traffic to the mix.  
  • The M5 is an obvious standout as it glides past the outskirts of town, carving its way through the county. The A38 and A358 run parallel to each other as they approach the town centre, then become part of a ganglion of primary roads that converge around the Firepool, Obridge and Rowbarton areas. For this reason, you should expect to encounter delays or even traffic jams around these northern districts between 07:00 and 08:30 on weekday mornings and from 18:00-20:30 on weekday evenings.

  • According to the Somerset County Council, you should observe the following speeds when driving a Taunton hire car around its boundaries: 20mph is the maximum speed in residential districts and urban areas, but 30mph is the legal speed across the entire county. 40mph is the limit on ring roads, for example, while 50mph and 60mph speeds are possible along the A38 and A358 once you’re safely outside town limits.

  • If you’re hitting the road hard, having an idea of where around town to fill up should always be a consideration. The average price for a litre of petrol in Taunton is about £1.20 per litre, while the average price for diesel is about £1.24 per litre. There are about 20 fuel stations in Taunton, so you’ve got a good chance of passing one or more at some point along your journeys. The supermarket chains account for only about five of the total number with BP, Shell and Texaco owning most of the others.

  • The Council for Somerset West and Taunton administers an on-street parking system within the town limits. These are usually pay and display schemes, so expect to use them for a limited time only. The rate is usually between £2 and £3 per two-hour period or about £1.50 per hour in certain areas. The Council also operates a few public car parks, some of which offer parking for disabled persons. Some of these garages may be multi-storey and are perfect for extended stays if you decide to leave the car behind. Expect a rate of less than £2 for the first hour to start.
