Top tips for renting a car in Torquay

  • Enjoy a trip to the south coast of England and explore this seaside town on your on terms with Torquay car hire. The benefit of having car hire in Torquay is that you are not reliant on other modes of transport to get to your final destination. You can drive to Cockington Court on the outskirts of the city, or even further afield, like to Paignton Beach. Perfect for when the weather is hot, this beach is about 11min, or a 3-mile drive, away from the town centre. Rather than waiting around for an alternative method of transport, car hire will get you there in the most efficient way possible.
  • The main airport close to Torquay is located about 26 miles and a 40min drive away in Exeter. Exeter Airport has numerous car hire companies which provide a variety of vehicles for your onward journey. Car hire companies such as Avis and Europcar can be found just outside the terminal building as you leave the airport. Once you’ve exited the building, turn left and you will see the car hire branches. Should you get lost, just follow the signs which will point you in the correct direction.
  • Torquay is a medium-sized town and a popular destination for tourists throughout the year, but especially in the summer months. Keep an eye out for families and young children crossing the road during peak season, especially on Victoria Parade next to the marina and Meadfoot Sea Road next to Meadfoot Beach. Also be aware of cyclists on the road who might be cycling along the coast via Torquay, as this is a very popular route for our two-wheeled friends. 
  • When driving with car hire in Torquay, it is likely that the roads will be busier during rush hour (between 08:00 and 09:00, and from 17:00 to 18:00), as many locals will be commuting to the neighbouring cities of Plymouth and Exeter to work. This particularly increases the traffic on Torbay Road and Newton Road, which are two of the main roads out of the town. The roads are likely to be far busier in the summer months than the cooler season, as tourists flock to the seaside for their holidays. So do be prepared for some heavier traffic if you are travelling in July and August.

Other parts of the town centre are 30mph, so keep an eye out for changes in the speed limit as cameras operate in this region.

  • You can park at Shedden Hill Car Park for £1.40 for up to 1h, or £8.50 for over a day. Alternatively, you can park at Harbour Car Park for exactly the same price. Both these car parks are located next to the marina, so you’ll be right where all the action is happening once you’ve parked your car.
