When renting a car in the UK, there is a wide selection of cars to choose from.
The cars available from most car hire companies range from small, economy cars to large luxury models, MPVs or even camper vans. Choices of cars to rent from, for example, London's Heathrow Airport are enormous, yet rental agencies in smaller towns in the UK may have a more limited selection of vehicles for hire. However, these smaller companies may offer other inducements or benefits, so it is always worth comparing prices and offers.
One of the easiest ways to rent a car in the UK is over the internet, where you can obtain an instant quote and also take advantage of many discounted rates. As well as websites specific to particular car hire companies, there are also several sites which will search the best deal for your particular requirements from a number of car hire companies. This can save the bother of comparing prices between companies, and can offer excellent rates for car rental.
Your choice of car will depend primarily on your needs and your budget, but it is worth checking for special offers as sometimes upgrades or other deals are available. Inevitably, however, the cost of hiring a car in Britain will depend on the size of the car and the length of time of the rental. It will also vary according to the location; your collection point and drop-off point do not necessarily have to be the same place, as most rental agencies offer the option of one-way rentals. For an additional charge, it is also possible to have the rental vehicle delivered direct to, or collected from, your home, hotel or office.
The policy on fuel can vary between companies, but normally a car is delivered with a full tank of petrol and a fuel deposit is taken on your credit card when you collect the car. The customer is advised to return the vehicle with a full tank of fuel; if not, the deposit will be used for the refuelling costs. However, this can prove a costly alternative and it is strongly recommended to fill up with fuel before returning the car.
For car hire from airports, information about the incoming flight should be given to the rental agency in advance, including the flight number and arrival time. This will ensure that the car is kept for you if the flight is delayed at all.
When searching for a quote, you will be asked not only for the dates and the location of the pick-up but also the class of car you are looking for. For rental purposes, cars are classified into groups, ranging from Group A - the small, budget models - upwards to large family cars, luxury vehicles, and multi-seaters. Other factors will also affect the price: features such as air conditioning and automatic transmission will increase the rental rate, and additional charges will also be made for extras such as child seats or roof racks.
