Enterprise car rental: hire a car for a family holiday

A car for any adventure: from city breaks to exhilarating road trips, the UK is your oyster with Enterprise Rent-A-Car

Enterprise has the car you need, from a spacious SUV to a luxury convertible. Choose from Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Enterprise Car Club.

Remember Easter – those sunny days that gave us a heady taste of summer at the end of April? Well, for the 67% of us that chose to take a staycation*, it was a reminder of just how glorious the UK can be. With many choosing to do the same this summer, here are six ways Enterprise can help you make the most of your UK break.

1. Explore a new region

At Easter, the top ten staycation destinations ranged all the way from Cornwall to Scotland's Highlands by way of Brighton, Snowdonia, the Lake District, Blackpool, the Yorkshire Dales and Aberdeen. The good news is that you can unlock the delights of a region on the far side of the country without having to cover a few hundred miles on the road to get there.

Enterprise has cars conveniently placed for hundreds of railway stations and airports, so why not travel by rail or air to your destination, then take off in a rented car to get off the beaten track – and under the skin of an area you don't know (yet).

2. Arrive in style

Wouldn’t it be fabulous to turn up at a swanky country hotel in a car to match? Well, there’s nothing stopping you. Enterprise has a pleasing selection of luxury cars available to hire, from the Mercedes E250 convertible to a large saloon such as the E Class. Start your break with a bang, not an old banger...

3. Arrive safely and de-stressed

If you’ve got a long journey and you don't know whether your not-so-faithful old motor will actually get you to your destination without mishap, it’s easy to hire a reliable car – particularly if you take advantage of Enterprise’s pick-up and drop-off service.

4. Travel together

Going on holiday with friends or family? Sharing the cost of a spacious rented cottage, or pitching up together at a holiday park, is a great way to have fun and reduce costs. Why not hire a bigger vehicle so that you can extend the experience and enjoy travelling together? If your group includes children it might make it easier to keep them entertained too. Hire a minibus or a people carrier and there will be all the more voices for your in-car singalong.

5. Take the road trip you’ve been dreaming of

Were you itching to hit the road after reading the Boundless 50 Greatest British Drives, but not sure your city nipper would do the North Coast 500 justice? Enterprise has just the vehicle you need, whether that’s a roomy SUV, a nifty sports car or an environmentally friendly EV. And it offers one-way car hire, too.

The top three drives were Thwaite to Ingleton in the Yorkshire Dales, the Llanberis Pass in Wales, and Crianlarich to Glencoe in the Scottish Highlands. So... which route is it going to be?

6. Transform staying home into a holiday

You can live somewhere for years without exploring the area on your doorstep – especially if you don’t own a car. If you want to try that restaurant just outside of town, experience a stately home a few miles away or enjoy a spectacular view that’s not on a bus route, Enterprise Car Club could be the answer. With more than 1,100 self service on-street vehicles in cities all around the UK, and with hourly and daily rates available, you can have the convenience of a car when it suits you.
