Location information for United Kingdom

United Kingdom is best explored by rental car. 121CarHire.com has over 209 pick-up locations in United Kingdom. This means there is always a pick-up location close to your destination.

Lying off the coast of continental Europe, the UK is as green and as undulating as Ireland, while playing host to bustling cities and down-to-earth people. It is a pleasure to see the UK by car, owing to its good road network and short driving distances. Compare car hire here before arriving for attractive discounts.



The UK has international airports in all areas of the country, with five in and around London alone. There are also domestic airports for quick connections as well as decent rail and road networks. Getting around big cities like London is best achieved using public transport, and although main routes can become congested, getting about by car is popular.

Car Hire UK

Alamo, Avis, Budget and National, among other big names, are typically represented at all major airports, plus there are several lesser known brands. It is best to book car hire in the UK ahead of time, online, to take advantage of discounted rates and to save time and hassle at the airport.


For the most part, the UK has an excellent road network. It is criss-crossed by motorways, allowing for quick access between cities. Where the UK excels is in its vast network of ‘B' (minor) roads that go to every single corner of the country. Roads are often congested, however, so it pays to plan long journeys outside of peak traffic times.

Things To See and Do

The UK is quite close-knit and there is always a lot to see within 30 minutes of any town or city. From London, take in Windsor Castle or Oxford; the Avon Gorge from Bristol; the Peak District or North Wales from Liverpool or Manchester; the Welsh hills from Cardiff; St Andrews from Edinburgh; and Lough Neagh from Belfast. Book car rental in the UK online before you travel.

Best Time To Visit

There are rarely extremes in weather in the UK and the average summer daily temperature is a mild 16°C. While the Gulf Stream brings in much warmth and keeps things humid, it also guarantees a fair share of wet weather. The best time to be here is May to September.

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 121CarHire.com 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). Which car rental companies are compared by 121CarHire.com? at this location
