Important information about London car rentals

Being the iconic city that it is, London has plenty of attractions that bring in tourists from different corners of the globe. For you to be able to explore the best of London, including iconic sights such as the Tower of London, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and Wembley Stadium, you just have to get a cheap car rental in London. Even though public transport in London is very reliable and pocket friendly, car rentals in London would be more convenient to help you move around with ease. There are tons of rental cars in London, so don’t stress about finding one.

Is it worthwhile to rent a car while visiting London?

The simple answer would yes, it is worthwhile getting car rentals in London. Traffic isn’t heavy during off-peak hours, so that is one less thing to worry about. Parking, on the other hand, is available in plenty, but most of it is metered, and the few free parking spaces are usually reserved for residents. Despite this, you shouldn’t have a hard time finding a good parking spot. Some commercial parking lots charge reasonable prices and most public metered parking spots are usually free on Sundays, and you can take advantage of that. All these minor inconveniences are worth looking past because you stand to benefit a lot more than you lose when getting a car rental in London.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind while driving in London?

The first thing you will notice is that drivers in London and generally all of the United Kingdom drive on the left side of the road, and the cars are right-handed. This is a major shift since, in the US, we are used to driving left-handed cars. Travelers should therefore have that at the forefront of their minds. It is not as easy as just driving on the left side. It completely changes how you take corners at a junction and who is supposed to yield way. This is critical as one mistake could result in an accident that may potentially ruin your whole vacation. Also, there are no jaywalking laws in London, so people cross the road wherever they feel it is safe to do so. So, before going for London car rentals, be sure to do extensive research on the differences in driving laws between the two countries. This will help you decide on whether you'll take a taxi or drive yourself around.

What kind of driver’s license do I need to rent a car in London?

You’ll have to prove your identity as well as your ability to drive before accessing car rentals in London services. As a US citizen, you will be classified as a non-EU resident, so your requirements might differ from those that someone living in the UK or any other EU country is demanded. First things first, you will need to show your US driving license as well as passport and make sure that the name and all other details match. Secondly, you should have an International Driving Permit, which is valid for 12 months and should be processed before travel.
