Top tips for renting a car in England

  • You can visit other countries with England car rentals because drivers often want to explore mainland Europe or the Republic of Ireland. You will need to purchase extra insurance for protection outside England, and you must inform your provider of your travel plans at least 72 hours in advance.
  • If you are planning to explore central London in your rental vehicle, note that there is a congestion charge. The charge is applied to anyone who drives or parks their vehicle in central London between 7 am and 6 pm, from Monday to Friday. You must register your license plate online and pay the charge before driving through central London.
  • You can rent many types of cars in England, and the choice depends on your needs. If you will be driving around cities like London and Manchester, a compact car gives you the flexibility you need. If you are heading beyond the pavement and driving on some of the rural roads, a 4X4 SUV or pickup truck should suffice. A van and minivan should do well for groups and families, respectively.

  • What is driving like in England?

    The first and most important thing to know about driving in England is that you should stick to the left side of the road. Also, there are no fast lanes in England, so stick to the left unless you are overtaking, and always use your turn signals as you overtake. Always yield to pedestrians and emergency vehicles with flashing lights. Do not blast your horn at other drivers, as this might be considered aggressive, and the law stipulates that you cannot blast your horn in built-up areas between 11:30 pm and 7 am. When driving in England, try driving within the stipulated limits to avoid unnecessary fines. Also, note that the speed limits are given in kph, and 1 mile is usually around 1.6 kilometers. For driving around built-up urban areas and school zones, stick to 50 kph (30 mph). Outside city limits, you can drive at around 90 kph (60 mph) and around 110 kph (70 mph) on the highway.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in England?

    You can get behind the wheel in England as long as you are 18. However, most car rental providers in England will only rent vehicles to drivers older than 20. Most providers also require you to have held your license for at least 12 months before you can rent a car. For drivers between 20 and 24, there is a daily surcharge on their rental cars. Moreover, these young drivers will only be limited to renting cars from certain classes, like economy, compact, and some mid-size SUVs. You will need a valid driver’s license and a credit card for payment to rent a car in England.
