Location information for Croydon

The city of Croydon is located within Greater London's southern region. The city is famous for its location, as tourists can easily reach the fascinating landmarks of inner-London and the spectacular towns of the southern English coast. Tourists can experience scenic drives to these areas with a car so compare car hire deals online as soon as possible for the best rates.



London Gatwick Airport is the closest air facility to Croydon, but its close proximity to London means other transport methods are available. These include railway links, public buses and taxis. The city is friendly for pedestrians, but the plethora of outer attractions need to be reached by car hire in Croydon. This will save tourists money and time.

Car Hire Croydon

Enterprise, Budget, Whitgift and Your-Car Hire are just a small selection of the companies offering rentals in Croydon. With so many excellent attractions located within an hour's drive from the city, visitors will adore getting there in their own vehicle. Self-drives are not only more comfortable than public transport but also very good value.


Driving in the centre of Croydon is not recommended, and neither is driving into London's inner districts. However, a car rental in Croydon allows travellers to discover the beautiful southern coast of England. Roads are kept in very good condition and span the entire region efficiently. Just be careful driving in drizzly weather as roads can be slippery.

Things To See and Do

Visitors can drive to nearby towns and explore their attractions such as Bromley's Chislehurst Caves, Bexley's Abbey Woods and the banks of Thames River in Kingston. However, there are other destinations around Croydon that can be reached like Brighton (50kms south) and Canterbury (60kms east).

Best Time To Visit

With so many coastal cities just a short drive from Croydon, visitors can use Croydon as a base during the summer months. Between May and August the weather is at its hottest, reaching an average of 22°C. In addition, more hours of sunshine and less rainfall are characteristics of the summer season here.

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 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?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

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).
