KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Newton Abbot

  • Booking car hire in Newton Abbot will free you from having to rely on public transport schedules and pre-determined routes so that you can explore the town and its surrounds at will. You can drive your family to the award-winning Pennywell Farm with all manner of animal-related activities, or take about a 30-minute trip to the historic city of Exeter. The fascinating Babbacombe Model Village is also only around 20 minutes away.
  • Exeter International Airport (EXT) is closest to the village, so if you're arriving by air it's the most convenient place to arrange for car hire in Newton Abbot. Once you've collected your baggage, walk through the Arrivals hall to the main exit, and then make a left turn once you're outside. You'll see the car hire building right in front of you, where all the major car hire companies at the airport have their offices. If you have too much luggage to comfortably walk, there's also a free airport shuttle.
  • While Newton Abbot is a smallish market town, the central district can get very busy, both with traffic and pedestrians. It's advisable to drive carefully, especially if it's your first visit. There are also some tricky junctions to negotiate, with unusual approach angles and lane splits. Make sure to pay attention to the signs indicating right of way. Also be careful at the staggered crossroads on Abbotsbury Road, as these can also be confusing for first-time visitors who have chosen car hire in Newton Abbot.
  • The vast majority of local drivers are polite and rule-observant. However, the TQ12 area covering Newton Abbot also accounts for some of the worst drivers in the UK, according to the UK Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency. So, while it's a pleasant place to drive, don't let your guard down. If you're driving your hired car in winter, be aware that the roads can become icy enough that they need salting, which is carried out by the local council. It's prudent to drive very carefully and don't take for granted that the road has been salted yet.
  • Book your car hire in Newton Abbot at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Newton Abbot are around 27% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Newton Abbot?

    Given how busy the centre of the town can get, if you're going to spend most of your time there, a smallish city car makes the best Newton Abbot car hire choice, allowing you to negotiate the traffic more efficiently. The town isn't far from the seaside resort of Torquay, so if you're planning a seaside visit with your family, get something more spacious like an MPV to fit in all your beach or water sports gear. In winter, it's not a bad idea to hire a 4WD vehicle, in case you encounter ice on the roads.

  • What's the speed limit in Newton Abbot?

    The speed limit in central Newton Abbot is 30 mph (48 kmph), while roads on the outskirts of the town have a 40 mph (64 kmph) speed limit. The authorities have a very strict traffic-calming policy in place, using mobile Vehicle Activated Signs as speed indicators. Thus, it pays to observe the posted limits at all times, particularly on main streets like Marychurch Road, where it intersects with Aller Brake Road. Community Speedwatch volunteers also keep an eye out for speedsters and report them.

  • Where are the best places to park in Newton Abbot?

    You won't have any trouble finding places to park in Newton Abbot. There are dozens of council-run car parks, as well as designated on-street parking spaces. These include Osborne Street Car Park and Cricketfield Car Park. These are open from 09:00 till 18:00 and cost around £0.50 per half hour. All parking in Newton Abbot is free on Sundays, including on-street pay and display parking provided by the Devon County Council.

The 2 people I met were helpful and explained things well. Thank you Ella & Andreea. I prefer a full to full petrol policy as I'm sure it's easier & less confusing for the customer. Disappointingly, the car was not fully detailed. The front door pockets were dirty & the floor was un-vacuumed. My car had an annoying smudge on the screen when using the reversing camera. It couldn't be wiped away & I suspect that there is condensation,/water inside the cover over the actual camera.
