KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in London

  • Driving cheap car rentals in London requires you to know the town’s major local roads. Wellington Road is the main local road that links north and south to the city centre. It's a key thoroughfare that links the city's central business district to the suburbs, commercial centres, and industrial zones outside. Dundas Street is the city's second main east-west thoroughfare. Located in northern London, Fanshawe Park Road serves as the primary route to Western Ontario University. The primary access road to the Fanshawe Conservation Area is Hyde Park Road. Lastly, Oxford Street is the primary road running through the middle of downtown from east to west.
  • Before hitting the road in London car rentals, get acquainted with the town's toll roads. Highbury Avenue North and South Toll Road and Veterans Memorial Parkway Toll Road are two of the toll highways that serve London. Both the Veterans Memorial Parkway Toll Road and the Highbury Avenue North and South Toll Road may be accessed from the junction of Wellington Road and Oxford Street. Access to Highway 401 is provided via both toll roads, and Highway 402 may be reached through the Highbury Avenue North and South Toll Road. These toll roads provide a fast and easy way to get to your destination while avoiding the congestion that might slow you down in the process.
  • For drivers new to London hoping to drive electric cars from London car rentals, you need to know about the free EV charging stations. One of the free EV charging stations for cheap car rentals in London is at the intersection of Wellington and South Streets, at the London Health Sciences Centre. It has a single-port Level 2 charger. Another is at the King Street and Colborne Street municipal parking lot. It has a dual-port Level 2 charger. Another dual-port Level 2 charging station is situated at the London Public Library, Central Branch, at the intersection of Queens Avenue and Dundas Street. You can find one more station at London International Airport with a dual-port Level 2 charger.
  • London, Ontario welcomes travelers with many interesting attractions and sights, including Storybook Gardens, various museums, and golfing clubs. Whether you’ve come to enjoy a golfing vacation or spend quality time with your family, the easiest way to maneuver through the city is on your four wheels. Rent a car for your time in London to do everything whenever you want to and create your own travel itinerary.
  • To enjoy a pleasant and smooth driving experience in London, adopt a defensive driving style, as some local drivers have the reputation of regarding street regulations rather as suggestions. Changing lanes without indicating beforehand or running a yellow light are common sights, and jaywalking by pedestrians is also a regular occurrence. Drive slowly and attentively and do not let the local drivers stress you into speeding.
  • Morning rush hours can mean delays and a honking crescendo, so try to avoid going on the roads between 6 and 8 am, and also between 4 and 7 pm if you want to avoid the worst traffic times in London. Winter can bring ice and sleet to the city, so make sure to slow down and drive extra carefully to avoid slipping.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in London for C$ 75 or less
  • Book your rental car in London at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in London are around 12% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Staff was the best! Drove me to my house to get another credit card. Quick service!

Cons:

The ease of rental in regards to what is required. (Unable to use a Visa debit to purchase) A 360 of the vehicle is necessary so that I am not blamed for any damages. This was not done before my departure.

When I made the reservation online it was for a truck...and a reservation confirmation was sent to me. Then I got a call from the company while I was driving to the store to pick up the truck, because they actually don't have a truck but they can give me a van with the same price. When I got the invoice it was 20 cad more...finally I ended renting a truck the next day in the morning from enterprise...Improve your service...

When I picked up the car in London,the gas tank was not full. I noticed it on my way home in London. It cost me $ 17.63 to fill it up(12.08 liters). When I returned the car the next day in Toronto,I complained it in Avis counter and showed the two receipts for the gas. The guy said I have to talk to Avis in London. I was heading to China so I didn't have enough time to do it. I did call them . But nobody answered phone.

Pros:

The Customer Service at the pick up and drop off were really friendly, helpful and on the ball. The price was as expected from my booking, and I was happy with $20/day for the car.

Cons:

The pick up location was changed via email less than 1 day from the pick up time (car was booked 5 days in advance). Every time I spoke with an Avis CSR on the phone, I was given different information as to why that is. The website is inconsistent with information about that as well, as I can still book at the 'closed' location. Very frustrating to be given different bits of information over and over again. It started with me calling in to confirm my reservation and costs (1 day after booking) and everything, including the pick up location, was confirmed. To the follow up calls about the change in location and the change in drop off location without notice. Definitely frustrating and still trying to work this out.

The rental sales agent responsible for the budget store at the London International Airport (Ontario) was extremely sleazy. He attempted to claim that the credit card I was using for rental did not have insufficient funds, even though I had been with my bank representative over the phone who confirmed that there was nothing wrong with my card. The agent simply refused to rent the car, which made the entire situation definitely sketchy. I did not rent the car with Budget, and had to look for another rental company to find a car at the last minute, since it was an urgent matter (by the way, my credit card worked perfectly with the other rental). 0 out of 10 would do business again with this store, and I do not recommend it to anyone else.

First of all, I was given a car that did not fit the description of the car in the category I rented and therefore I could not fit my luggage in it. I then had to pay for an upgrade which I was not happy about, but I did not have a choice as my parents and I were needing to drive a further 2 hours to our destination, and it was late. When I got the next car, it was dirty inside and had quite a lot of marks and scrapes on the wheels. I was told to take pictures of the damage (I did). When I was driving it, I noticed that the service overdue and engine oil lights were on, but it was too late to go back. I had two tyers blow while I was driving, which the tyer repair place said was caused by the damage on the rims. I had to pay for the two new tyers and budget were not prepared to reimburse me for the cost. We could have been killed if I had been travelling any faster. Although I have pictures of the damaged rims, they are saying that the car was not damaged when it was rented to me, even though I have pictures on the day. I am disgusted with budget.

It was locked up in a back area and we had to go move the gate, move the car, then move the gate again to get out. The car pulled hard to one side and it was a mess.

Pros:

The drop off was a little weird. The guy wasn’t in his booth and was walking out the door and asked for my keys. I was super confused as he didn’t have an ID card etc. It took me a few minutes to realize he had a Hertz shirt on. I didn’t like the drop off.

Cons:

Car could have been cleaner and the drop off better, but other than that, it was fine.
