Plan your trip from LondonIconic art and architecture, lavish parkland and unstoppable design, rich theatre and sensational music, welcome to a city of villages – from upmarket Chelsea, maritime Greenwich, to decadent Soho and hipster Shoreditch.
After visiting a selection of London’s ever growing 30,000 shops, 6,000 restaurants, 7,000 pubs and encyclopaedic list of heritage attractions, you may be ready for adventures further afield.
Motor for two hours up to the tearoom-filled villages of the Cotswolds. Steer right for the ancient academy city of Oxford. Or head to the wild moors and surfing bays of the southwest. En route, take in the spa city of Bath, cross into Wales for the second-hand bookshop capital of the world.
Set off north from London for the Minsters and small town charm of Yorkshire and Wordsworth country tucked away in the idyllic Lake District. Or explore the sparsely populated, picture perfect Northumberland coast.
Pass into Scotland and the golf courses of North Berwick. From Edinburgh it’s a 15 minute hop to hilltop Rosslyn Chapel, made famous by The Da Vinci Code. Glasgow and 16th-century Stirling Castle are nearby. Continue climbing for the Grampian hills, the Cairngorm massif and the jagged west coast.

Don't forget the London Congestion ChargeSeveral Avis hire stations fall inside or just on the outskirts of the London Congestion Charge zone.
Drivers entering central London between 7am and 6pm on Monday to Friday (look out for the Congestion Charge signs) have to pay the charge on a daily basis. The official site has maps and details on how to pay the charge.
We can process the payment on your behalf for the first day of your hire, so you have more time to relax and enjoy the journey. Just let us know when you collect your car.
