Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Gatwick car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Gatwick.
Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Gatwick car rental.

You can rent a variety of cars in the city of London. Choose a compact car like a Kia Sportage or Ford Fiesta. If looking for luxury or sporty vehicle, consider a Mercedes Benz A-Class or a Land Rover. With several charging stations around London, renting an electric car might be cost efficient if one is available.
You’ll drive mostly on the highway throughout your visit, which permits drivers speeds of up to 70 mph (113 km/h). Driving from one neighborhood to another, you might be able to take a single or two-lane highway with speed limits of 60-70 mph.
Gasoline prices in London cost around $5.79 per gallon. This is slightly higher than in other areas of the UK, such as Manchester and Glasgow, as well as in the United States. During the holidays, petrol prices tend to increase in and around London. Diesel costs a little more, although these cars are thought to be more fuel efficient.
Finding parking in and around London can be complicated at times. One way to deal with this problem is to park on a side street in a residential area and catch the tube to your destination. If visiting the central communities of London, you can park on the street for free in the evenings and on Sundays. But note that some parking spots are reserved for residents only, so look for signs. Parking lots (“car parks”) are also popular and safe places to park your hire vehicles. There are large parking lots and garages in Chinatown, Covent Garden, and Theatreland.
