Cheap Car Hire London

London, England,was at the centre of what was called 'Cool Britannia', is now one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world. Served by four major international airports, London flights are easy to catch from any major city. Some airports have better transport links to central London than others, so it pays to explore car rental in London. London hotels include some of the most luxurious in the world, but there is accommodation to suit all budgets. Cheap London car hire is a great way of getting around if you are mindful of the traffic, but it still beats taxi fares and the uniquely circuitous night buses. It also allows you to explore the wider United Kingdom. We also compare car hire in towns close to London such as Dartford.

Places to visit in London

Drive along the Thames and dart over the bridges at night to get some of the best city views. The City of London itself, the financial quarter, clears out at night and you can explore all the lovely windy streets and magnificent Gothic architecture nestling side by side with modern buildings. Don't miss the wealth of museums, shopping in Covent Garden, The London Eye, the changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace and a West End show. End your evening like a true Brit, not with fish and chips, but with a Brick Lane curry.

Why You Should Book London Car Hire

London is a huge city. And while it's often easiest to travel between boroughs on the tube, a bus, or even via one of its iconic black cabs, its sheer size makes having a car at hand, well, handy. It can also be difficult to get out of the city via public transport. It's expensive, you're subject to the whims of timetabling, and can take a long time to travel a short distance. And with so many fabulous places within easy driving distance of London - Bournemouth, Bath and Dorset among them - it's worth hiring a car in London for day trips, longer breaks, or even just a weekend adventure if you're a London local!

Places to Visit in London

Drive along the Thames and dart over the bridges at night to get some of the best city views. Imagine zooming across the famous Tower Bridge, the iconic Thames beneath you, and the dramatic towers built over 120 years ago rising above you. Or, looking across towards St Paul's Cathedral from the luxury of your rental car as you drive over London Bridge. The City of London itself, the financial quarter, clears out at night and you can explore all the lovely windy streets and magnificent Gothic architecture nestling side by side with modern buildings.

Explore the sweet residential streets that litter London, from Hammersmith in the west to Dulwich down south. Keep an eye out for the colourful houses that brighten up the often-gloomy skies of the city!

Don't miss the wealth of museums, shopping in Covent Garden, The London Eye, the changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace and a West End show. End your evening like a true Brit, not with fish and chips, but with a Brick Lane curry - everything can seem quite far away in London, so having a car to turn to can make exploring that much easier.

Though London is fantastic for sightseeing, there is also plenty to do outside of the capital - the country is packed full of amazing places to visit and sights to see. Marvel over the prehistoric monument Stonehenge in Wiltshire, a two-hour drive from London, then head to nearby Salisbury to check out its famous cathedral. South of London lies the famous seaside town of Brighton, where Londoners went to take in the fresh air, and the nearby region of Dorset offers pretty towns, picturesque walks and a slower pace of life. The white cliffs of Dover always come highly recommended, while in the opposite direction beautiful Wales is within driving distance! You could even head further afield, to cities like Manchester and Liverpool, or national parks such as the Lake District and the Cotswolds.

  • General Advice on Hiring a Car

    When you purchase car hire you are entering into a contract with your car hire company. Always check their terms and conditions before you buy to make sure you're aware of your responsibilities when you collect your car in London, and any additional charges.


    Here's a few things to watch out for:

  • Almost all car hire companies add a mandatory fee for drivers under the age of 25.
  • Check what level of insurance is included for the hire car in London. In particular check how much the excess is (the amount you need to pay in the event of any accident) you may want to take out additional insurance.
  • Check what the fuel policy is with your car. Don't forget to fill up the tank before you drop it off if you've agreed to return it full!
  • Find out if there's a maximum daily mileage - especially if you're planning to do a lot of driving in London!
  • You'll need to pay a deposit (or pre-approve one) to pick up the car. Most car rental companies will only accept credit cards for this.
