KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Barking

  • Gain the freedom and flexibility to explore the bustling East London district of Barking and its surrounding areas by hiring a car. Car hire in Barking allows you to say goodbye to the complex underground tube system and spend your time there the way you want to. The sights of central London, like Buckingham Palace and Oxford Street, are just a short drive away, and a hire car makes day trips far more accessible. The charming coastal town of Southend-on-Sea can be reached in under an hour and the sights of historic Cambridge are only 55 miles away.
  • London City Airport is 2.5 miles from Barking and has a number of car hire centres to choose from, so you should have no problem finding the right vehicle for you. Avis, Hertz and Europcar are all located right outside the main terminal building. They’re easily accessible by foot and offer an extensive choice of quality cars. Likewise, you can pick up your Barking car hire from London Gatwick’s North Terminal, Heathrow’s T5 and T2-4 and the London Stanstead car hire village. All are located within a 35-minute drive of Barking via the M25.
  • Being a district of the UK capital, there can be a lot of traffic in Barking, including buses and taxis eager to take up the road. You’ll also have to keep an eye out for cyclists, who tend to ride fast whilst weaving in and out of traffic. Roads can be complex with many different lanes, so you’ll need to be alert during busy periods. Navigation systems are available to add to your car hire in Barking to help make life on the road that little bit easier. It’s also worth bearing in mind that speed limits change regularly, and cameras are common in built up areas like Barking.
  • Barking is a popular place to live for commuters who travel in and out of Central London for work. This can mean that roads are busy at any time, day or night. Generally speaking, roads are especially busy at rush hour - from 7:00–10:00 and 17:00–20:00. It’s also common for families with young children to be making the school run from 8:30–9:00 and 15:30–16:00. You might want to allow some extra time in your schedule if you’re travelling during these hours, especially if you’re coming in off the M25, which is often congested at peak times.

They charged me for a chip on the windscreen which I believe might have been there before I picked up the vehicle and was hardly visible. I would advise people to take pictures/videos before driving off from the pickup point. And again even though I had a picture before driving off I was not able to see it as it was raining and there were water droplets on the windscreen and it rained through my rental period which was just a day!!

Car hire insurance in Barking

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Barking car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Barking.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Barking car hire.
