Car Hire Suffolk and Cambridgeshire

Choosing the right hire car for your needs is important, which is why the Rent Direct team works alongside you in sourcing the ideal vehicle. 

Whether you need a car for the weekend, a romantic getaway perhaps, or a bigger vehicle for a family holiday, we specialise in providing car, MPV and van rental. Even if you require a replacement car to tide you over while your regular vehicle is being repaired, we can help.

All rental vehicles available from Rent Direct are of the highest calibre, with models from some of the world’s leading manufacturers available across our six locations in East Anglia. Each model in our fleet is clean and comfortable, and comes ready with all mod-cons for a worry-free driving experience. 

As a Rent Direct customer, you’ll also benefit from fully comprehensive insurance and breakdown cover as standard, meaning you can get behind the wheel of your rental vehicle with complete peace of mind.

Our Car Rental Fleet

The Rent Direct car fleet consists of small ‘city’ cars, such as the Kia Picanto, mid-sized cars like the Mazda 2 and Volkswagen Golf, plus larger SUV-type cars, such as the Kia Sportage and Kia Sorento. Each boasts advanced in-car technology plus the latest safety features, with the addition of satellite navigation among those features often included. 

With engines that offer the perfect combination of fuel efficiency and sharp responses, you can be certain that the needs you have will be met in full. So, whether you’re enjoying a few days away, need a last-minute car for an airport run, or even require a vehicle on a long-term basis, we’ll be only too happy to help you find the right model.
