And of course, a few handy tips!

  • Book ASAP: You can use the Car Hire Centre gadget above to get a quote and find the cheapest rates for your journey.
  • Get to know your vehicle: Be sure to familiarise yourself with the car before you leave the car hire centre. Check you’re up-to-date on UK driving laws and if anything’s in a different place – such as Fiat 500s and KAs have a much higher gear stick to what you might be used to!
  • Keep double checking: When you get the keys to your car or van, make sure to check over it for any damage. Take note of any slight scratches, body paint issues/ irregularities, seat quality (like any potential smudges or cigarette marks). We recommend taking pictures as evidence and to let the rental staff know of any pre-existing damge so you can avoid being charged for someone else’s damage when you return it.
  • Opt for a Sat-Nav: Especially if you don’t know the area and don’t want to get charged for all that data on your phone!
