Car hire in England

Renting a car in England is a great option if you want to explore the country without getting your own car. It is relatively cheap to hire a car in England, and the major car rental firms have offices in most big towns and airports.

Rules

To be able to rent a car, there are a few requirements. These will sometimes differ depending on the car rental firm you choose, so make sure to check before you book.

  • You must be at least 21 years old and have held a driving licence for a mimimum of one year.
  • Many car rental firms have an upper age limit of 70 years.
  • If you are under 25 you might be charged extra, but this will depend on your chosen car rental firm.

Add-ons at booking

Should you want extra equipment in the car, e.g. a GPS or a child car seat, it’s best to add this already when booking the car. This will in turn facilitate the pick up of your car and ensure that the equipment is available.

Having a GPS in the car is a good idea, especially if you are driving in the country side.

Also be aware that by law, children under 3 years old or shorter than 135 centimetres must use a child car seat.
