Location information for London

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.

Car Hire London

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.

Things To See and Do

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).

Best Time To Visit

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.

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?

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).
