To help you decide who to rent with, you can see the ratings and reviews left by our customers next to each car listing. We ask them to rate their rental experience in seven key areas (such as the condition of the vehicle and the efficiency of the counter staff), and we are pleased to say that the majority of the companies we deal with across London have been rated as ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’.

The Cotswolds: A two-hour drive from Central London, the Cotswolds offer peace and tranquillity away from the bustling capital — so why not get up early and enjoy some quiet time in the countryside? With idyllic, hilly landscapes and picturesque villages with honey-coloured buildings, the area is brimming with natural beauty. If you really want to make the most of the stunning surroundings, consider booking into a hotel for the night.
Brighton: Also two hours from London is the seaside resort of Brighton, on England’s south coast. The vibrant town has plenty of shops and restaurants, as well as the famous pebble beach with its traditional pier. On the pier, you will find two amusement arcades and a funfair with rides to suit all ages. Some other great attractions in Brighton include the Royal Pavilion, the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery and ‘The Lanes’ shopping area — a maze of narrow alleyways lined with boutiques and independent shops.
Thorpe Park: Take a drive to one of the UK’s biggest theme parks and enjoy the wide range of rides and attractions at Thorpe Park. Just an hour’s drive from London, Thorpe Park has a number of thrill rides to get your adrenaline pumping — including Stealth, which shoots you more than 200ft high, and accelerates from 0-80mph in less than two seconds! If you want something a little less intense, there are plenty of family rides which offer a gentler pace.
