Below you'll find our top suggestions to score the best price on a car rental:
Chelmsford has loads on offer. You could vacation for a while in this place and hardly scratch the surface. If you want to take in as much as you can in this bustling metropolis, a rental car is a must. Bear in mind that driving in the city often comes with tight streets and even tighter parking spaces. Don't stress though, because a small car like a compact can make this a lot easier to navigate. If you're going to venture out of the city and see some of the forests that Chelmsford is known for, you'll probably prefer a vehicle with more cargo space. A full-size or mid-size SUV are perfect for scenic road trips.
You'll be glad to hear that there's a wide variety of both luxury and economy rental vehicles in Chelmsford. What you end up going with is largely dependent on how much you want to spend and what you're hoping to do. Prestige vehicles offer the best in comfort and class. If you want to indulge yourself, why not book a high-end SUV, or perhaps a fancy mid-size sedan? On the other hand, if you just need a car to get from A to B at the cheapest price possible, you're better off choosing a no-frills compact vehicle (or something else that won't burn a hole in your pocket).
