And of course, a few handy tips!

  • Book as early as you can: The more in advance you can book, the more money you’ll save! Use the Car Hire Centre gadget above to get a quote and find the cheapest rates for your journey.
  • Check, Check and then Check again!: Once you pick up the keys to your vehicle, 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). Be sure to take pictures and ensure the rental staff write down the pre-existing damge (if it isn’t already) so you can avoid being charged for someone else’s damage when you return it.
  • 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!
  • 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!
