This hire station is just on the outskirts of the London Congestion Charge zone.
Drivers entering central London must have permits when driving within the congestion zones between 7am and 10pm, 7 days a week (look out for the Congestion Charge signs). The charge is payable on a daily basis. The official site has maps and details on how to pay the charge.
You will see notifications about a charge as you pass through the Dartford Crossing. You don’t need to do anything, or pay the fee in advance, as we will make the payment on your behalf. The crossing fee will be charged to the payment card registered to your rental within 14 days of the authority notifying us of the crossing, with no additional costs included.
For those interested in British history, culture and the arts, there is no better location to start your discovery of London than at London Tower Bridge. Enjoy great museums, fantastic restaurants and striking architecture. See the Globe Theatre and St Paul’s Cathedral, spend time in Borough Market and visit the Tower of London—a UNESCO Heritage Site founded in the 11th century that houses the Crown Jewels. Behind the wheel of your hire car, you can then go on to explore Westminster Abbey and the British Museum.
When you’re ready to leave the urban streets behind, take a scenic drive down to the Victorian seaside resort of Brighton, with its charming squiggle of narrow pedestrianised shopping lanes, sweeping boardwalk and Pavilion.
For a taste of academia and Gothic architecture, the university city of Cambridge, just one hour north of London Tower Bridge, is an inspiring place to visit. From punting on the river to strolling around the grounds of centuries-old colleges, there’s no shortage of things to do.
Surrounded by miles of pretty countryside studded with villages of thatched cottages, Stratford-Upon-Avon makes for a great day out from London.
