Location information for London

Car hire in London

One of the world's greatest cities, the megalopolis of London is world-famous and the most popular visitor destination in the UK. The River Thames carves the city in two, with most main attractions found on the north side. London consists of 32 boroughs, all of which have their own charm. Self-drive is a great way to discover all corners of this massive city, which is bursting with culture, fashion and history. There is a broad selection of car rental providers available, so it is best to compare cheap car hire in London here to ensure the lowest rates.

Why to visit

London, the global capital of many things, is the most important city in the UK. It is packed with historic landmarks, fantastic museums and superb shopping opportunities, as well as vibrant nightlife and top-notch restaurants. The city can be a bit overwhelming for some, but friendly Londoners are always willing to help out confused tourists. Self-drive is advisable for those using London as a base for visiting other areas in southern England.

Transport

London is well equipped with five airports, with London Heathrow and London Gatwick being the most used by international travellers. It also has one of the most extensive public transport systems in the world, although many enjoy exploring on foot or by bicycle. Those looking to travel beyond this huge city to the south of England's quaint towns and seaside resorts however, should be sure to arrange car rental in London. This will enable you to visit nearby historic cities such as Bath, Canterbury and Salisbury.

What to see and do

After organising London car hire, visitors can drive an hour west to Windsor, home of the famous Windsor Castle and Eton College. Heading northeast for 40 miles will take you to Stonehenge, the country's most visited and famous site, and a must-see attraction for tourists of all ages. Brighton, an ultra-hip and trendy beach town, can be reached by driving just over an hour to the south, while heading west for 25 miles will take you to the pleasant historic Roman spa city of Bath. The university towns of Oxford and Cambridge also make for enjoyable daytrips.

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).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
