London Stansted Airport Car Rentals
London Stansted Airport in England, situated about 40 miles North of London is a major airport serving not only London, but also Cambridgeshire, Essex and Hertfordshire, and one of the best ways to get around once you have landed is to pick up a rental car from Stansted Airport Car Rentals. All the major car hire companies have desks at the airport, in the International Arrivals concourse, and you have a great choice of which rental car to choose for your UK visit. It is also possible to book your hire car online before your journey – this way you will be able to compare prices and special deals and have the assurance that the rental car you prefer is available when you arrive.
London by rental car
London is a wonderful destination for tourists, and there is just so much to see that you will not know where to start! Although public transport is readily available, using a car rental is a much more convenient option for getting into the city; there is nothing worse than trying to battle the commuter crowds when you are laden down with luggage, and when you leave the train or bus you will still need a taxi, which is a very expensive option. Parking can be a bit of a problem in central London, so it is advisable to book a hotel which provides parking for your rental car, and you can download a list of parking garages before you leave home. Some of the London, UK attractions you simply must not miss are the London Eye – great for getting your bearings and one of the best views in the City, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, Westminster Cathedral and, of course, Buckingham Palace and the Changing of the Guards. After spending a day or two seeing the main sights you may need a bit of retail therapy – head for Westfield Shopping Centre (plenty of parking for your rental car) where you can visit most of the Big Name stores under one roof.
Day trips from London in your hire car
There are many great day trips to do from London, and when using your car rental you do not have to stick to rail or bus schedules, and can just do things at your own pace. Did you know you could even take a day trip to Paris with your rental car, and still be back in London for dinner? You can drive your car onto the Eurostar train at St Pancras Station in central London, have a great English breakfast onboard and be in Paris in 2 hours! Other really good options to consider are day visits to the famous United Kingdom university towns of Oxford and Cambridge, a trip to Bath and Stonehenge or a drive out to see Windsor Castle and Eton College.
The very best thing about having a hire car is that you can drive yourself (and your luggage!) directly to Stansted Airport Car Rentals at the end of your visit, instead of wasting half the day waiting for transport.
