Location information for London

London is as dynamic as it is exciting and as vast as it is fascinating. From the heart of the city and the River Thames, to the pandemonium of Piccadilly Circus and Chinatown, there is an incredible selection of activities, choices and days out that can be enjoyed with London car hire.

London's museums are second to none. For proof of this you only need to visit the Natural History Museum with its incredible dinosaur collection or the Imperial War Museum and be transported back to wartime London. For scary thrills of a different kind you can visit the London Dungeons and see the nasty characters that inhabited Jack the Ripper's London.

If culture is more your ideal holiday then you have art galleries galore to choose from, including the National Gallery and the Tate Modern. If you fancy a more musical evening then you will be captivated at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden or by a recital from the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

In need of some shopping while you're in town? Head to fashionable Knightsbridge and the world famous Harrods department store. Lunch at one of Kensington's elegant eateries before enjoying the retail therapy of the shopping meccas High Street Kensington and Oxford Street. There is plenty of off road parking for your car hire in London in one of the many car parks.

If you want to sample some of London's global cuisine you have the option of Chinatown, Bengali or Indian in Brick Lane, fantastic Italian and continental European and of course hearty British grub. Budget car rental allows you to dip in and out of the city's delights as and when you choose, and is a great way to explore the sprawl of London.

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 HireCars.co.uk 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). Which car rental companies are compared by HireCars.co.uk? at this location
