Car Hire Basildon

About Basildon, England

Basildon is the biggest town in the borough of Basildon in the county of Essex, England. It is situated 40km east of London city centre and 18km south of Chelmsford. Basildon was established as a new town in the wake of World War II in 1948, to ease some of the pressure on London's population. It was formed by merging the villages of Pitsea, Laindon, Basildon and Vange, with Basildon earning naming rights as the most central of the four.

Rent a car in Basildon, and you will have direct access to the City via an excellent road network - the A127 and A13. You are also within easy reach of the coast, at Southend-on-Sea, just 21km away, or you could head to the popular seaside resort of Clacton-on-Sea, 89km away. In fact, Basildon is a good base for any travels in south-east England.

Basildon can trace its roots 1086, when it was referred to in the Domesday Book as Belesduna. The name 'Basildon' is believed to have derived from the Anglo-Saxon personal name 'Boerthal' and the Anglo-Saxon word 'dun', which means hill. Down through history, the town has been called everything from Berdlesdon to Batlesdon and Belesduna.

Thanks once more. I hired a car in Liverpool recently when I was on business. Getting to my location was quick and trouble free thanks to the efficiency of your people at pick up. The car was economical and at a great price. This is why I will be back

I was very pleased with the service offered at George Best Airport - the car was great, very clean and well prepared.The young man on the desk in the airport was efficient, friendly and courteous even though our flight had been diverted to Dublin and we finally arrived in Belfast very late.
