Should I get a luxury rental car in United Kingdom?
Sometimes the journey is more significant than the destination, which makes choosing the right car important.

The left side is where you’ll be driving in United Kingdom. Also take note that the controls of your rental car here, such as the steering wheel, will be on the other side of what you’re used to.
What happens if I get a speeding fine while driving a rental car in United Kingdom?
Normally, one of two things will happen. Your rental car company may bill the amount of the fine to your credit card. This is the most common practice. Or it may pass on your contact details to local law enforcement agencies so the fine is issued straight to you.
