If you’re not happy using the public transport system in London, then renting a car is a fantastic way to get around. There are a few things you should know before you rent, however. Unless you are a UK resident, it isn’t a good idea to rent a car. This is because we drive on the left hand side of the road. Although, if you are planning to stay here for a while then you should perhaps just try and get used to driving our way.
Furthermore, only rent a car if you feel you are an experienced enough driver to cope with the London traffic. London has some of the busiest roads in the country, especially at rush hour. It can often be dangerous to drive in the city, so think before you rent. Finally, make sure that you are licensed properly to rent the car. You should be aware of all the parking rules and congestion charges in London, too, before you set off on any journeys. Stick to this and you’ll have a great trip.
