Once you leave London, the best way to get around is with a hire car. The only difficulty is deciding where to go... Take your pick from the locations listed below. Embarking on a one-way journey in your rental car? With Avis one-way car hire you can simply let us know your destination in advance and our teams will ensure that your rental vehicle drop-off is seamless, wherever you decide to go.
Immerse yourself in the heritage of a historic city, discover stunning coastlines, vast manor houses and the postcard-perfect English countryside. Don't leave without taking afternoon tea at a village teashop, or feasting on fish and chips at a seaside eatery.
In these extraordinary times, Avis wants to reassure all its customers that their safety and well-being comes first. Our precautionary methods against COVID-19 include deep cleaning and sanitisation of all our vehicles following strict WHO guidelines - with close attention paid to those surfaces common to touch such as steering wheels, controls and door handles. We also offer flexible cancellation policies and a fully contactless rental experience.
The countryside has so much to offer. Rent a cottage, stay in a B&B or pitch a tent. Whatever you choose, Avis car hire is the right option to get you started. If it’s hiking you’re after, head north for the Lake District’s rugged peaks, the Peak District’s rolling hills or Yorkshire’s natural unspoilt National Parks.
If you fancy exploring the south, then the chalk hills of the South Downs could be just the ticket. There are also stunning coastlines: from the Jurassic coast, Dover’s white cliffs and Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsula in the south, to Northumberland’s rural coastlines in the north. Plus the unique scenery of the Norfolk Broads. Experience the holiday of a lifetime and spend the day touring this expanse of rivers and lakes by boat.
Towns and cities
Car rental is the perfect option for nipping between the different cities, towns and villages. Soak up the contemporary living and diverse entertainment offered by regional greats such as Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle, Leeds, Bristol or Nottingham.
Step back in time in the historic cities of Bath, York, Stratford-upon-Avon, Chester, Oxford or Canterbury. Enjoy fish and chips at the seaside resorts of Brighton, Whitby or Blackpool. Or spend a lazy afternoon driving through picturesque villages in the Cotswolds, Devon, Cornwall, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. Don’t forget to finish your day with a scone or two and a pot of tea.
