Car & Van Rental in Hertfordshire?
The proximity of Hertfordshire to Greater London is one reason this South England county has experienced a boost in population. Moreover, many major companies have set up their headquarters in the county, thereby providing employment opportunities. Hertfordshire has been a big contributor to the film industry, with one of Britain’s major studio complexes, Elstree, located in Borehamwood. The first three Star Wars, the Harry Potter series and James Bond - Golden Eye were filmed in the region. Hertfordshire has plenty to offer as well in terms of landscape, with a good percentage of the land developed for agriculture. From natural gardens and wildlife parks to museums of national history, tourists in Hertfordshire are spoiled for sightseeing potential. You can make your way from one attraction to another in different parts of the county with a hire car. Enterprise Rent-A-Car has eleven locations in select areas, including Hertford, Hatfield, Luton, Hemel Hempstead and Watford.
