There’s nothing worse than holidaying somewhere and not being able to get around whilst you are there. Public transport in and around Ely is generally good but if you really want to make the most of your holiday and visit some of the surrounding towns and cities in your own time you should thing about hiring a car. Thankfully Ely car hire is relatively straightforward. You will find all the big name hire companies such as Enterprise Rent a car, Budget and Thrifty all offering cut price deals and weekend specials. Most of the branches will deliver to your hotel if you can’t get out to the branch to pick it up. Once you have sorted out your Ely car hire there are a number of places you can visit. The famous historic city of Cambridge is about 25 minutes down the A10 and A14. Or you can choose to head West on the A14 towards Huntingdon, or East to wards the Suffolk coast and the beaches at Hunstanton. Alternatively you can simply meander around many of the winding country roads and enjoy a pub lunch in one of the fantastic village pubs surrounding Ely. Don’t forget that in the UK we drive on the left hand side and we would generally recommend keeping your drivers license on you at all times. Car crime is rare compared to the inner cities but we would still advise that you keep valuables locked in the boot and out of sight as opportunist thieves do operate, particularly at some of the larger tourist attractions.
