Location information for United Kingdom

Car hire in the UK

The UK has it all; from ancient sites, to blue flag beaches, to towns and cities packed with venues for lively entertainment and dining. Beginning with the beautiful vistas of the Highlands of Scotland all the way down to the majestic cliffs and golden sands of Cornwall, the UK is a paradise for holidaymakers, fun lovers and culture aficionados. Getting the most out of a holiday here is best done with UK car hire.

Major airports and ports

London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports are the UK’s busiest international gateways. Manchester, London Stansted, Belfast and Birmingham are among the other airports with flights coming in from abroad. There are several ports on the coast of the UK that have passenger ferry services. On the east coast, for example, Newcastle, Harwich and Dover receive services from continental Europe.

Transport

The UK has a good public transport network, with domestic flights to major cities from London as well as comprehensive rail and intercity bus networks. The only trouble with UK public transport is that it is not cheap unless booked well in advance, and most routes revolve around London. Car rental in the UK is more convenient for sightseeing, especially for locations in remote areas of the Peak District or the pristine Welsh countryside.

Driving tips

People renting a car in the UK need a full driving licence and at least one year’s driving experience. Overseas drivers need either an international licence or a full licence from their own countries in English script. Motorists in the UK drive on the left, and car hire is available at airports, ports and all the main towns. Compare cheap car hire in the UK with CompareCarHire.co.uk for the best rates from global suppliers such as National and Hertz.

Places to visit

UK city traffic is busy, and motorists will find country driving more comfortable. Windsor Castle and Legoland are west of London, while the prehistoric monument at Stonehenge is a little farther still. On the south coast, seaside resorts including Brighton, Swanage and Torquay are popular summer destinations.
