Car Hire - London
There is nothing really new that we can say about London that hasn't been said a hundred times before. One of the most famous and majestic cities anywhere in the world, it attracts more visitors than other British city, which is no real surprise when you consider what it has to offer. From the regal splendour of Buckingham Palace to the vibrant West End scene with it numerous theatres and clubs, you should never be bored for a moment when you are staying in London.
The thing is, London is the short break capital as those who come in on the train, bus or plane tend to just stay for a few days. Granted, those days will be a heady mix of attractions and entertainment and many are exhausted when it's time to go home. Next time you fancy a weekend or short break in the capital here's a suggestion; why not spend the time there you intended to then hire a car and take a road trip around the resplendent south east?
BIt's no secret that there are more people choosing to holiday at home than ever before, these so called 'staycations' are giving the economy a much needed boost as well as giving us the chance to see exactly what our own country has to offer. Granted a car isn't needed in London itself, and with the congestion charge and everything else it is far cheaper, and more convenient, to use the underground to get around as it literally takes you everywhere within the city boundaries.
The 11 home counties that surround London are well worth visiting, and by collecting your car in London at a convenient collection point you can hit the open road and see the best of the English countryside. The road network around the capital is extensive as you would expect for the capital but once you are beyond the city limits and on the open road you will be shocked how quickly you can get into the open countryside.
Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, Norfolk, Oxfordshire, Suffolk and Surrey are all waiting to be explored with a freedom only afforded by a hire car. As you can see just by looking at the names above there is a fine mix of both coast and country to discover, and taking your time to visit this glorious region of England will certainly make you realise what we have on our doorstep.
Booking your hire car at the same time as you book your transport gives you the best choice of vehicle at the best price possible. Okay, the weather may not be guaranteed as it is if you fly off south to the Med but all the sun, sea and sangria doesn't come close to the stunning natural beauty of the English countryside in any season. The more we discover the gems in our own country the quicker our economy recovers from the recession, and we are also lowering our carbon footprint by not flying, a win win situation.
