As one of the world's preeminent cities, London is a pleasure to visit. It is mainly noted for its royal landmarks and monuments, its world class museums and galleries, its incredible theatre and nightlife, and its overall buzz. While driving here is not recommended, booking car rental in London for daytrips is a must.
London is the easiest place in the world to get to on account of it having five international airports and direct rail access from France. Getting about the city is made easy by the vast London Underground and numerous bus lines. However, if you plan on having a look beyond the city, it is best to drive and see the countryside up close.
London airports are loaded with major representatives, which are located in the Arrivals areas. They include Alamo, Budget, Avis, National, and many others. Taxi fares to any London address from any airport are high, so it pays to compare car hire before you land.
Driving in Central London, where a hefty congestion charge is in place, is best avoided. Additionally, rush hour anywhere within the M25 ring road can see traffic congestion bring motorists to a standstill. At other times, motorways offer quick access out of the city, with secondary roads often winding their way through quaint villages.
Away from the trappings of the city centre are further royal landmarks, including the massive Windsor Castle, which is not far from Heathrow Airport. Hampton Court Palace and Kew Gardens are located to the west of London, while farther afield are Oxford (northwest), Cambridge (north), Canterbury (east) and Brighton (south).
London is best seen in the summertime, though avoiding the tourist hordes in July and August is a good idea if you don't like crowds. Despite the propensity for rain, London rarely experiences rains non-stop for days on end and the weather in spring and autumn can be nice. Daily averages in summer are 18°C. Notting Hill Carnival, in August, is the biggest event.

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.
