It is the birthplace of some of history’s finest characters and was once the seat of the mightiest empire on earth. This green and pleasant land has way more going for it than London. And with cheap car hire, England can be yours to conquer.

With car rental, England, with its fascinating history and multitude of attractions, can be a brilliant place to visit.

If you are travelling to England you are destined for a whole host of wonderful adventures. The largest of the nations in the UK and Ireland, it features some world-famous areas of outstanding natural beauty. During your trip to England, car hire is essential to take you along the extensive motorway and trunk road network as you visit the destinations on your route.

From the Lake District to the Cotswolds, England is packed with national parks and beauty spots such as the West Country, the South Downs, the Peak District and the picture-perfect Northumbrian Coast. So take in the gorgeous scenery, enjoy some country rambles and rural walks and savour the sights and sounds of the English countryside.

But before you do, don’t forget to visit the buzzing capital, London. Car hire in England is available from all of the major airports, so you can take to the roads straight away if you wish.

Whether you land at London Heathrow (LHR) or London Gatwick (LGW) you can pick up your vehicle and be in central London in no time. There are hundreds of sights to see, including Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, the Tower of London and Nelson's Column.

Wander around the Natural History Museum, indulge your artistic side at the National Gallery or the Tate Modern and get a bird's eye view of the city from the Shard. There are a myriad of restaurants, bars, cafes and eateries in London, so whether you are looking for Michelin-starred cuisine or a bite to eat overlooking the Thames, you will find something to suit your taste.

Pre-book car hire and you can collect your vehicle from an airport location or one of many downtown car-rental offices across the country. Booking in advance also means that you are likely to find the cheapest deals.
