Cheap Car and Van Rental in Bedford

The process of car and van hire takes moments on the Enterprise online booking system. Customers can easily reserve the car they want, without having to call or go into an Enterprise branch. For a way to save money, particularly if a lot of driving is going to be done, choose an economy vehicle. These cars are fuel-efficient, so return more miles per gallon than ordinary cars. It's also good to know that these vehicles are kinder to the environment. As for space, an economy vehicle can seat four passengers, with boot space for three bags. Their fuel efficiency makes them ideal for travelling great distances, or for when the car will be rented for long periods of time.
