KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Truro

  • If you want cheap car hire in Truro, you should look for a car that offers unlimited mileage, so you can explore the whole of the county. For example, you can add this to your policy with a range of car hire companies such as Europcar on Edhen Park. This means you won’t receive any unexpected charges should you spend a long time behind the wheel.
  • When you get a hire car in Truro, you need up be up-to-date with the regulations in the country. For instance, you can only hire a car if you are 21 years of age or older. You also need to have held your licence for a minimum of one year, without any discrepancies. Most Truro car hire agencies have age restrictions on vehicle types too, whilst those under 25 are likely to be subject to a young driver’s surcharge. Remember to bring a photo ID (such as a passport), your driving licence and a credit card in the main driver’s name.
  • If you are caught drink driving, even in your hire car, it is taken very seriously. The legal limit is 0.08% blood alcohol content. If the police pull you over and you test above this limit, you will be prosecuted accordingly. The consequences of being over the limit include being fined or banned from driving and possibly even imprisonment. Police have the power to pull you over if they suspect you could be under the influence of alcohol. They also carry portable breathalysers with them, so you can immediately be tested.
  • The advantages of booking a hire car in Truro are endless. Not only will you gain the freedom and flexibility to discover this beautiful city, but you can venture further afield and explore everything else Cornwall has to offer. Truro is home to traditional markets, the Royal Cornwell Museum and a stunning cathedral. It’s also surrounded by national parks that comprise the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Beaches such as Loe Beach and Pendower Beach are only a 30min drive away, or you can head out to Trewithen Gardens and take a stroll under the Cornish sun.
  • The closest airport to Truro is in Newquay, which is around a 30min drive away. Car hire firms such as Europcar and Hertz are located in the main terminal, and you can choose from their extensive selection for a vehicle to suit all your needs. Offices are open 8:00–16:00 Monday to Friday, 8:00–13:00 on Saturday and closed on Sunday. If you’re arriving outside these hours, you are able to pre-book a meet and greet service to collect your Truro car hire.
  • Truro is renowned for its cobbled and narrow streets that will require extra care and attention when driving. Many central roads are reserved for pedestrians only, so you may find adding a sat nav to your car hire in Truro helpful. Roads can also be steep, which you’ll need to be cautious of in wet or icy conditions. Generally, drivers in Truro are kind and patient, so don’t worry too much about finding your way around.
  • As a popular tourist destination, the roads in and around Truro can get busy at any time of the year, although especially in summer. It’s advisable to avoid roads like the A390 heading into Truro during rush hour, where commuters travel into the city for work. This is usually between 8:00 and 9:00 and from 17:00–18:00. The weather in Truro is generally great during the summer, although heavy rain and snow is possible in the winter months, so you may have to adjust your driving accordingly in these conditions.

A bit of traffic in the morning and afternoon, but it it to be expected. A lot of construction on A390, so give time and patience.
Verified travelerMay 2023
Driving on the left side of the road and on roundabouts are very difficult for Americans in general. Traffic in Truro is very busy.

The car we got was excellent! We had trouble getting to the rental place in Truro when we arrived at the train station. The Hertz car dealer at the Truro train station tried calling them on two different phone lines with no response and ended up giving us a ride there.

Car hire insurance in Truro

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Truro car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Truro.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Truro car hire.
