Sure, you could vacation in Colchester without a rental vehicle. But with so much to check out here, having one would certainly make your stay more enjoyable. If you plan to get out of town and on the open road, pick a rental car with a bit of power. A mid-size or full-size SUV will get you to the surrounding forests in comfort and style.

Choosing your perfect match depends on how much you'd like to spend and where you plan to go. Some road trips are just begging you to splurge on your dream ride, whereas other adventures don't need more than four wheels and a gas pedal. The choice is yours.
