The Great London. Modern, vibrant, ancient and new at the same time. London welcomes tourists from all over the world every single day — and with good reason, as every corner reserser something new for the visitor.
For the ones looking to visit London, some attractions are a must see: the jaw dropping Westminster Abbey, the Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, the Thames, London Bridge and at least a few of the city’s many museums.
From London, you can also enjoy short, but enjoyable one-day road trips. There’s always the famous and prehistoric Stonehenge — perfect for a day trip —, but we also recommend considering the beautiful Marlow (about an hour from London), the Leeds Castle (less than one hour and a half from central London), or Brighton (about two hours from London by car).

In most countries, the minimum age required to hire a vehicle is 25.
Each driver must present a full, valid and original national driving licence, held for a minimum of 2 years. If your licence is not in a language used in your destination country, an International Driving Permit to accompany your national driving licence is highly recommended. Some rental companies and government agencies require that you present an IDP. It is the renter's responsibility to present both their IDP and Driver's License when picking up the vehicle. For more information, please reach out to the Rental Company.
Each driver must present a valid and original photo ID and passport.
The renter must present a valid and personal credit card with enough funds to be held as a security deposit. Third-party credit cards will not be accepted. The car hire company is solely responsible for approving the provided credit card. Online prepayment does not exempt the renter from providing a valid international credit card during vehicle pick-up. The hire company will place a hold in the amount of the required security deposit and, when applicable, any additional local fees not covered in the prepaid voucher will be charged to the card provided at the hire location.
You must present a printout of the Booking Confirmation Voucher at the hire location. This document officially confirms all agreed upon services, payment conditions, rates, discounts, as well as the availability of a vehicle from the selected group.
Car hire companies reserve the right to refuse service to underage or unlicensed drivers, those with poor credit history, or individuals otherwise considered liabilities by the hire company.

Hire car protections usually have the abbreviations CDW and LDW and protect the vehicle from robbery and damage in the event of collisions or accidents.
The protections against third parties have several abbreviations, such as ALI, SLI and others. In general, they protect the vehicle from third parties involved in collisions with your rental car.
To pick up the car you must leave a security deposit, also called a pre-authorization. The amount is "blocked" on the renter's credit card and "unlocked" after the return of the car on the same conditions.
It is possible to add optional items to your reservation, such as GPS, child car seat or booster seat. Take advantage of those items so you don’t have to worry about it later!
If someone else is sharing the wheel with you, they need to be added to the car hire agreement as an additional driver and meet the same documentation and minimum age requirements as the main driver or hirer.
Check if your reservation has free mileage or not. Free mileage means you can ride as much as you like with the hire car and you will not pay extra depending on the ride.
