Top tips for renting a car in Truro

  • 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.
