Location information for Bedford

Bedford, England is a town steeped in history - at times a somewhat turbulent history. The origins of Bedford go back to the 9th century when it was established by the Danes. A short time later the town was recaptured by the English King Edward in 915AD, but was taken at a later date again by the Danes.

Bedford lies on the A6 road, and two of the most important north-south routes in Great Britain: the A1 and the M1 motorway pass a few miles to the east and west respectively. A variety of car rental agencies operate out of Bedford and provide a range of car hire in Bedford to suit most budgets from the thrifty to the not so thrifty.

For many years wool was one of the main industries in Bedford. The Great Ouse River, which passes through the town, was made navigable in 1689. Bedford grew rapidly into what was to later become an important industrial centre. Bedford was at one time also one of the main centres of England's lace industry.

If history or lace is not your thing then perhaps jazz is. Every two years in July Bedford hosts the River Festival featuring live music and sports and attracting some 250,000 visitors.

Or perhaps the Cecil Higgins Art Gallery and Museum in Castle Close, which possesses a notable collection of English and continental porcelain, glass, furniture and water colours, may appeal. These sites can be toured with cheap car hire in Bedford.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Ecarz.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
