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.
