Location information for England

Car hire in England

England car hire is by far the only way to go for those wanting to see everything this magnificent country has to offer. Serving as the crossroads of ancient civilizations, merry old England offers the eager visitor an abundance of sights and delights.

Major Airports and Ports

Heathrow Airport is London's premier international gateway, while Gatwick and London City airports also share landing services. Many ferry services run up and down the River Thames, while ports into the country are found in Dover, Hull, Portsmouth and Newcastle, to name a few. Several large sea lines transport customers to major destinations such as Amsterdam, Belfast and Ibiza.

Transport

Car rental in England is a rewarding experience as the country's roads are the best and safest in the entire EU. Taxis are plentiful, but more expensive than riding a tube, bus or tram. River cruises along the Thames in London are supplemented by a fine network of buses, but self-drive is the easiest way to get around. Compare cheap car hire in England here today, wherever you are planning to visit.

Driving tips

The minimum driving age in England is 17, and EU style and English language versions of all valid driving licences are accepted. Agencies providing vehicles in England supply all the necessary documents needed for getting around the country. The legal blood-alcohol level is set at 35mg/100ml, and tolls are usually only required to cross certain bridges.

Places to visit

England is awash with world-famous landmarks, entertainment and culture. Visit the home of The Beatles in Liverpool, once the Empire's centre of wealth and trade. Connect with your inner druid amid the mysterious bluestone edifices at Stonehenge (see image above), or rediscover Shakespeare at the Globe theatre in London.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is CompareCarHire.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
