Professional service and almost new car. Only regret, I booked a Honda Civic -vehicle standard, 4m50- I had a C3 Aircross- small SUV 4m15. Not a bad horse, but also spacious.

The car was New and excellent to drive, very comfortable but they made me pay for the insurance twice One on line and one at pick up! This should have been clear on the site I made the booking They claimed that I bought American Insuarance not valid in the UK ! If this is the case why do you give this option? why was I offered an invalid policy?

My experience was 100 percent horrible I cannot believe your company would have them on your preferred list .got to the counter to pick up my car and it was the beginning of a horrible experience I was there for 40 minutes and then when I looked at contract everything was changed from the type of car I was scheduled to get to higher prices , extra charge to bring the car back to the same place I was taking it from, asked to speak with supervisor was told no and sign documents or no car , I refused to pay all hidden additional charges so I refused to rent car. They said they would not refund money I paid in advance for insurance I can go on and on but won't horrible horrible experience never again.

All was fine except that apparently basic insurance was apparently no included in the quote I received from CarRentals.com. This has never happened to me before in all of the rentals I have taken with CarRentals.com. So was Enterprise guy correct to charge me nearly the double the quote to add insurance or has something Changed in CarRental.com T&C's that I wasn't told about...

I was surprised to be told when picking up the car that I was required to buy additional insurance (despite the fact that I have private cover for car rentals so that I do not need to buy additional insurance). I received different explanations from two different staff members for this requirement, which seemed to contradict the Enterprise UK website. One staff member explained that too many customers end up damaging the cars and then have insufficient funds available to cover the cost, so I would not be permitted to forgo additional insurance and assume the risk (which is what I wanted to do, with that risk mitigated by my private cover). But another staff member told me, when I returned the car, that I had simply been required to purchase the compulsory minimum insurance, which for some reason had not been included in the base rate that was quoted on this website. That might explain why the rate was, indeed, better than comparable offers from the same location, but does not match the explanation I was given at pick-up. Otherwise, my experience was fine, although I ended up with a vehicle that I did not care for (Nissan Juke).

I purchased insurance through the website at time of booking vehicle. When I went to collect vehicle, they would not release it to me until I purchased another policy. Apparently there was an issue because I was redirected to an American website!

Car Rental at London Airport (STN): What you need to know

With your trip guide in hand, you can feel the excitement. Once you deboard, your holiday can start in this amazing city,. When you arrive in London, you are going to desire an automobile to check off everything on your itinerary. What better way to get going on your getaway than to get behind the wheel right away? Below is nearly all the information you want to make sure your car rental from London Airport (STN) goes as easygoing as possible.

How do I get the best price on a car rental at the London Airport?

You are in the right place if you are trying to find the best deal on your London rental car. If you want to maximize your savings, aim to:

  • Determine what car you'll need for your vacation. Don't get more car then you need
  • Compare all the deals available
  • Make sure you are aware of any cost for an added driver, fuel policy, and mileage limits. That way you can make sure you know the total cost before you book

Do I have to be a certain age to book a London car rental?

You can rent an automobile in London if you are at least 19. Be aware that you will most likely be charged an added fee if you are younger than 25. Moreover, if you plan to rent a higher category vehicle (premium, large capacity, SUV, etc.) there may be different age restrictions. Make sure you check the rental car company's policy before you book.

What rental car suppliers are at London Airport?

There are 8 rental companies at the London Airport. Rent from companies like Alamo, Avis, Budget, and Dollar, plus several more. With so many incredible choices, you are certain to get the price and the auto that you need.

Is car insurance necessary when you rent a car in the United Kingdom?

In London you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover) usually provide some coverage. But they normally have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to London. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

What forms of ID do I need to bring picking up my car rental?

Whichever supplier you go with, you'll need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.

Do I need to return my car rental with a full tank?

We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank. However, if you return the rental with less fuel than you began with, the company may charge a premium to top it off. For a cheaper rate, you'll want to find a gas station before you return the car.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

London certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've done all the hot spots in London. If you have your heart set on seeing as much as you can, you will want as many miles as possible to explore all you can during your getaway.

Can I get a one-way rental for my London trip?

Many suppliers offer one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different location. Don't forget there is typically a supplementary fee when you decide to only go one-way.

What sort of car would you recommend I hire at London Airport?

That depends on your needs and what you will be doing. Smaller vehicles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's suitcases and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their London vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
