There are a couple important things you need to know when driving in London. First, while we try to make your driving experience in the city as comfortable as possible, there is still a lot of traffic. The busy streets are full of cars and cyclists, with over half a million cycle journeys across London every day. If you want to avoid the city centre, you can get on the M25, also known as the London Orbital, to circle the outskirts of the city. Part of Zone 1 in central London has a congestion charge due to the heavy traffic as well as a speed restriction of 20mph (31km/h). Second, several London hire locations fall inside or just on the outskirts of the Congestion Charge zone.
Drivers entering central London must have permits when driving within the congestion zones between 7am and 10pm, 7 days a week (look out for the Congestion Charge signs). The charge is payable on a daily basis. The official site has maps and details on how to pay the charge.
You will see notifications about a charge as you pass through the Dartford Crossing. You don’t need to do anything, or pay the fee in advance, as we will make the payment on your behalf. The crossing fee will be charged to the payment card registered to your rental within 14 days of the authority notifying us of the crossing, with no additional costs included.
Our ambition is to accommodate all your driving needs. Sometimes these include hiring a van for business or personal transportation, GPS requirements, family necessities such as child seats, fuel options and much more.
