With miles of pristine coastline, scenic boat-filled harbors, and many areas of outstanding natural beauty, it’s no surprise that Dorset is a popular tourist hotspot. Dorset (once known as Dorsetshire) is a large county that is located in South West England, roughly three hours' drive away from London. The county is divided into six shire districts which include Purbeck, Christchurch and Weymouth. Dorset covers over 980 km², so it’s a good idea to rent a car to easily explore the area at your own pace. We have a branch located in Dorchester, Dorset, as well as near to most of the major airports in England so you can easily pick up your car on your next trip.
The essential items you will need to bring to an Enterprise Rent-A-Car branch when renting a vehicle are a valid drivers license, valid ID, and a credit or debit card.
