    Convenient Locations in London

    Auto Europe offers pick-up and drop-off locations throughout London. We work with suppliers including suppliers like Avis, Hertz & Europcar at our airport, city and downtown locations. Find the ideal vehicle for your travel at one of these convenient locations by comparing rates in our booking engine and we encourage you to inquire about our fantastic rates on one-way car hires that allow you to pick-up in one location and drop-off in another location in London or throughout the United Kingdom.

    As one the world's busiest capital cities, trying to park a car safely, quickly and cheaply in central London is always better when you plan in advance. Private car parking companies operate around the city, so you can research car parks near your destination and save money by pre-booking your parking in advance. On-street parking in London is on a Pay & Display basis. Charges are in operation from 8:30 am – 6:30 pm Monday to Saturday, with exceptions. There is always signage near the parking metre with the exact times for the particular zone.

    The London Congestion Charge applies to all vehicles entering central London. The driver, rather than the car hire supplier, is responsible for paying this charge if you drive your car hire into the charge zone. You can find a map of the charging zone and check addresses at the Transport for London website. It is cheapest if you pay on the day of travel in to the charging zone, as the charge will increase if you pay the next day. It is best to budget an extra £10 per day of driving in central London and payment methods include telephone, online and SMS text messages.

Feel welcome to contact Auto Europe with any questions 24/7 and toll-free at 0800 855 052.

    Can I use third party insurance for my car hire in England?

    How much does it cost to hire a car in London?

    Similar to airplane tickets, car hire rates are constantly changing due to factors such as market demand and the timing of your booking. Despite these variable rates, Auto Europe is still able to offer the best rates in the industry through our unique relationships with top suppliers. To ensure the best rate for your car hire, we recommend you book as early as possible and Auto Europe even offers a price match guarantee, so if the rate of your booking lowers before the time of pick-up - we will match that lower rate.
