Location information for Southend

Southend is a traditional seaside resort, 40 miles from the British capital, London. In the 1950s and 1960s, working-class Londoners flocked here in their droves, especially on bank holiday weekends. Nowadays, the crowds have lessened somewhat, but Southend's attempts at modernization hope to bring back the glory days to the town.

Southend is well-connected by road and rail. Travelers coming from London can take a train from Fenchurch Street to Southend Central. This station is most convenient for those visiting the promenade. Alternatively, there is another route to Southend Victoria, departing from London Liverpool Street.

Trains from London should take around one hour on either route. Alternatively, those flying to Southend Airport will find seasonal flights from Jersey, operated by Flybe. Much of Southend can be covered on foot, but car rental in Southend Downtown is recommended to those who would like to travel farther afield.

Those visitors who do choose car rental in Southend Downtown will find plenty of parking available. Much of it is located near the seafront and is reasonably priced. Many of Southend's attractions can be found near the old pier, including an aquarium, gardens and galleries. Visitors can also take a boat trip up the River Thames, which departs from a spot near the pier.

It's well worth driving west from Southend to Leigh-on-Sea. It's just three miles away with cheap car rental in Southend Downtown. It's a little quieter than Southend, catering to a slightly more mature clientele. Guests can visit the town's bird sanctuary, as well as Hadleigh Castle, an historic ruin with free parking.

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 Car-Rentals.com 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?

Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).

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?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

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?
