Last year we rented from Enterprise at Barton Mills. We walked from the terminal to Bird in Hand and they picked us up. We left the car at the Bird in Hand when we departed. With a known international company we could use a discount code.
In previous years we have rented at Bird in Hand. They had the AAFES concession but we did not get a military discount.

Bill, the latest I heard was a very good rental from Enterprise at Barton Mills, just outside Mildenhall village. I seem to remember something about £80 per week with insurance. I don't know about the drop off, but it isn't far from the base.

Neal Floyd, great job on the europe car rental info. I saved a copy for future reference.
I called the Mildenhall PX number today and the lady I talked to said they can only rent to someone stationed in England. I looked into a rental last year but drop off seemed to be a problem.
Last year instead of a hop from Ramstein we flew Ryan air to Stansted and rented a Hertz car. We dropped the car in Newquay and rode with friends for a week. We then rented a Hertz car at the train station in York and returned to Stansted. We spent one night at Mildenhal to check it out. Looks like if you plan to fly in and out of Mildenhal the easy way is to rent from Mildenhire (1car1.com) at the bird in hand pub. I still don't see a way to rent from Hertz,Europcar etc and drop at the terminal for an Early flight. Maybe Don or Dee Dee can tell us an easy way.Some of last years discussion:
