FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

London Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental London

Car Rental in London

London is one of the world's most iconic cities and a must-visit for fans of history, culture and modern cuisine. The city itself is immersed in a rich and rewarding heritage, with impressive historical buildings — like the Tower of London — going toe-to-toe with modern skyscrapers and landmarks. One of the best ways to experience it all is with a low cost car hire in London. For one, when you rent a car in London, you open up the possibility for day trips out to iconic sites like the White Cliffs of Dover and Stonehenge. Read on for our guide to the top sights and sounds experienced with a car rental in London.

Places to see in London

As the capital of the United Kingdom, London holds many of the country’s most important museums and galleries. From the British Museum to Kensington’s Victoria & Albert Museum and Natural History Museum, you could spend days absorbing the countless historical displays which are unique to the city. That’s not to mention the iconic centers of modern art like Whitechapel Gallery, the Serpentine Gallery and the Tate Modern. Simply put, London is one of the world’s greatest destinations for culture.

For history unique to the capital itself, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, St Paul's Cathedral, Shakespeare's Globe, the Houses of Parliament and Greenwich’s Royal Observatory are all must-sees in a busy itinerary. And then there are the Royal residences and related estates like Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace, Buckingham Palace and the Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens.

Tip

London has a vibrant craft beer scene with several noted “bar crawl” hotspots offering the best locally brewed beer and cider. The Bermondsey Beer Mile takes in over 18 breweries and brewpubs under railway archways, while London’s East End has its own five-mile beer crawl across breweries and pubs which are well worth a visit for beer aficionados.

What is there to eat and drink in London?

No visit to London is complete without a trip to a renowned pub for a pint and a steak and ale pie. You’ll find old drinking spots that once hosted writers like Virginia Woolf and Charles Dickens (like The Lamb) next to modern craft cocktail bars offering the UK’s most exciting concoctions. There are also famed breweries like Fulham’s Fuller’s Brewery and distilleries like Beefeater Gin Distillery in Oval, ideally reached with a rental car in London. And then there’s the food. London is one of the world’s culinary capitals, offering Michelin-starred cuisine alongside vibrant, multi-cultural restaurant options and street food trucks in areas like Borough Market. What’s more, you can reach many more culinary gems on the outskirts of London, like the famed Fat Duck in Bray, with a London car hire.

What is there for kids to do in London?

London is a children’s dream come true, with many of the country’s most exciting attractions. From the London Zoo to the London Eye and the Science Museum, there are plenty of things to see and do for kids. Perhaps among the top of the list is the Harry Potter Studio Tour, some 40 minutes’ drive via rental cars from London center. You can always follow this up with a trip to the West End to catch "Harry Potter And The Cursed Child" or another play; just be sure to book in advance.
