Top tips for hiring a car in London

  • London, Ontario welcomes travelers with many interesting attractions and sights, including Storybook Gardens, various museums, and golfing clubs. Whether you’ve come to enjoy a golfing vacation or spend quality time with your family, the easiest way to maneuver through the city is on your four wheels. Rent a car for your time in London to do everything whenever you want to and create your own travel itinerary.
  • London International Airport is just over 7 miles from the heart of London, so consider renting a car directly from the airport grounds to be in the city in less than a quarter of an hour via Oxford Street E or Trafalgar Square, depending on your next destination. Upon landing at the airport, head to the hire car desks and choose a car from multi-national companies like Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz.
  • To enjoy a pleasant and smooth driving experience in London, adopt a defensive driving style, as some local drivers have the reputation of regarding street regulations rather as suggestions. Changing lanes without indicating beforehand or running a yellow light are common sights, and jaywalking by pedestrians is also a regular occurrence. Drive slowly and attentively and do not let the local drivers stress you into speeding.
  • Morning rush hours can mean delays and a honking crescendo, so try to avoid going on the roads between 6 and 8 am, and also between 4 and 7 pm if you want to avoid the worst traffic times in London. Winter can bring ice and sleet to the city, so make sure to slow down and drive extra carefully to avoid slipping.
