KAYAK’s 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.
  • 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.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in London for £48 or less
  • Book your car hire in London at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in London are around 17% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Intermediate car hire in London are around -16% cheaper than other car types, on average

Cons:

"They do not apply Enterprise procedures in offering Customers the free Pickup and Dropoff service for their clients. I find that this Enterprise has a very condescending way in talking to its customers. When asked why the website and answering service offers pickup and/or delivery to customers they blamed it on being short staffed and this service is for only customers that reserve cars for many days. I was asked if I could take public transportation. The employees starting with the manager is very condescending."

Cons:

Instead of base model cars they could have higher quality packages for the cars. The prices could be lower, you know (Daily Rates) The cleanliness of the cars could better, one thing they almost always miss is thevfront windshield of the car, and that's usually on the inside. (Sorry boys)

Consistently poor service. This visit, they didn't even check over the car of help us to find it, just gave the key. It was locked up in a back area and we had to go move the gate, move the car, then move the gate again to get out. The car pulled hard to one side and it was a mess. I only rent from them when there is NO other choice.

When I made the reservation online it was for a truck...and a reservation confirmation was sent to me. Then I got a call from the company while I was driving to the store to pick up the truck, because they actually don't have a truck but they can give me a van with the same price. When I got the invoice it was 20 cad more...finally I ended renting a truck the next day in the morning from enterprise...Improve your service...

KAYAK

Pros:

The Customer Service at the pick up and drop off were really friendly, helpful and on the ball. The price was as expected from my booking, and I was happy with $20/day for the car.

Cons:

The pick up location was changed via email less than 1 day from the pick up time (car was booked 5 days in advance). Every time I spoke with an Avis CSR on the phone, I was given different information as to why that is. The website is inconsistent with information about that as well, as I can still book at the 'closed' location. Very frustrating to be given different bits of information over and over again. It started with me calling in to confirm my reservation and costs (1 day after booking) and everything, including the pick up location, was confirmed. To the follow up calls about the change in location and the change in drop off location without notice. Definitely frustrating and still trying to work this out.

When I picked up the car in London,the gas tank was not full. I noticed it on my way home in London. It cost me $ 17.63 to fill it up(12.08 liters). When I returned the car the next day in Toronto,I complained it in Avis counter and showed the two receipts for the gas. The guy said I have to talk to Avis in London. I was heading to China so I didn't have enough time to do it. I did call them . But nobody answered phone.

The rental sales agent responsible for the budget store at the London International Airport (Ontario) was extremely sleazy. He attempted to claim that the credit card I was using for rental did not have insufficient funds, even though I had been with my bank representative over the phone who confirmed that there was nothing wrong with my card. The agent simply refused to rent the car, which made the entire situation definitely sketchy. I did not rent the car with Budget, and had to look for another rental company to find a car at the last minute, since it was an urgent matter (by the way, my credit card worked perfectly with the other rental). 0 out of 10 would do business again with this store, and I do not recommend it to anyone else.

First of all, I was given a car that did not fit the description of the car in the category I rented and therefore I could not fit my luggage in it. I then had to pay for an upgrade which I was not happy about, but I did not have a choice as my parents and I were needing to drive a further 2 hours to our destination, and it was late. When I got the next car, it was dirty inside and had quite a lot of marks and scrapes on the wheels. I was told to take pictures of the damage (I did). When I was driving it, I noticed that the service overdue and engine oil lights were on, but it was too late to go back. I had two tyers blow while I was driving, which the tyer repair place said was caused by the damage on the rims. I had to pay for the two new tyers and budget were not prepared to reimburse me for the cost. We could have been killed if I had been travelling any faster. Although I have pictures of the damaged rims, they are saying that the car was not damaged when it was rented to me, even though I have pictures on the day. I am disgusted with budget.

Car hire insurance in London

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some London 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 London.

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 London car hire.
