Important information about London car hire

If you are thinking about a car hire in London in the hope that you can also drive your rental car in Europe, you should check with the company first. The good news is, most companies do allow you to take your rental across the Chunnel for use in Europe and all companies permit you to take your car to the Republic of Ireland. If you would like to take your car out of the UK, you will need written authorisation from the rental company and the legally required form (form VE301B). At the moment, only Alamo, Enterprise, and National do not permit you to take your hired car to the continent but you should still check with the company of your choice just to be sure nothing has changed concerning the company’s policy.

When considering cheap car hire in London, you will generally need a credit card and this must belong to the intended driver and be issued in the same name. There are, however, a number of companies that will accept a debit card instead. Most people looking into London car hire will probably prefer to use a credit card, however, as this is generally safer. Among the companies accepting debit cards are Europcar, Orbitz and Easirent but it may be worth your while discussing this option with your preferred company before rental. A card of some kind is generally required for insurance purposes and as a measure against damage caused by driver negligence or other unanticipated costs incurred while using your rental car in London. You will, of course, not be charged for any incidental damage covered by the rental agreement, including any no-fault accidental or third-party damage covered by the company’s insurance. Credit cards are always required for luxury car rental in London.

London is a big city and, although traffic is generally quite orderly, it can get heavy. When hiring a car in London, remember that traffic laws are very strictly enforced and cameras are installed on streets all over the city. If you are from a country that drives on the right, don’t forget that traffic flows on the left in the UK. You should also be careful of speed limits, which are carefully controlled by speed cameras. A further thing you should also take care with is parking. It is illegal to park in the street in many parts of the city and these no-parking zones are not always clearly signposted. If you park in an unauthorised area, you can expect to have your vehicle clamped and towed, so, to be safe, you should try to park only in designated parking zones. Luckily, these areas are frequently signposted and are usually paid. In most cases, you can pay with parking vouchers, or some areas have metered parking.

When hiring a car in London, you will need your passport and a valid driver’s licence. Several nationalities, including citizens of the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and several Commonwealth countries can drive in the UK on their national driver’s licence but many other nationalities may need an international driver’s permit. This is certainly the case if your licence is not in English. Additionally, you will need a return ticket proving your intention to leave the UK as well as proof of accommodation during your stay. Finally, you will generally need a credit or debit card issued by a major company such as Visa, Mastercard, or American Express, or sometimes a debit card may be acceptable at certain car rental locations in London.
