Car hire branch informationWe are directly in front of the station. Just come out onto York Road and you’ll spot the red Avis signs. The station is centrally located, in zone 1, and can be reached by several Tube lines.

Sometimes you just have to get out of the capital. Waterloo Station is just south of the Thames and conveniently located for exploring the sunny counties south of the capital.

Breakdown assistance: It’s unlikely that anything untoward will happen, but for your peace of mind we include 24/7 breakdown and roadside assistance with all vehicles rented in the UK. Our Roadside Assistance team are there if you need them, at any time of day.
Child seats: Under UK law, all children below 12 years and under 135 cm in height must use the appropriate child restraint. At the time of booking, please let us know if you would like us to provide any baby or child seats for your journey.

Don't forget the London Congestion Charge
This hire station is inside the London Congestion Charge zone.
Drivers in 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. Discover 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.
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.
