How to get an additional discount in United Kingdom

We care about your budget and in conjunction with rental companies of United Kingdom, we regularly make deals and launch special offers. Start monitoring prices for dates you are interested in right at the beginning of planning your trip, so you have a better chance to rent a car with the maximum benefit. The most reasonable time is 2-4 months before the start of the rental time within normal periods and 3-6 months within the high season.

When you book, you fix the cost indicated on the current date. If the trip for some reason will not take place, you may cancel the booking free of charge 24 hours before the start of the rental time.

Prices for petrol/diesel in United Kingdom

Petrol stations are located on the outskirts of United Kingdom, so it is better not to go to the city centre with the empty tank. You are allowed to transport fuel in a canister in the city, so you may, for your own calmness, buy and fill a 10-litre container with the right kind of petrol or diesel.
Approximate prices for fuel:


Return in other city or country

You may take a car to United Kingdom and return it to another city without any problems. Just search for suitable offers by specifying the return city you need. The search results will show only offers from those companies that allow return in another city. The indicated price already includes a one-way tariff.

Booking cancellation & modification policy

You may book a car in advance; and if your plans change, you will be free to cancel your booking 24 hours before the start of the rental time. This is the standard contract condition.

In the case of cancellation within the next 24 hours, you will be charged a fee of 50 EUR.

Compensation for cancellation on the day of booking is not provided; in this case, you will be charged the full amount for the entire rental time.

To cancel the order, use the special form on the website.


Do I have to pay additional local fees?

Planning your trip budget with cars-scanner is easy; when booking, you see the final price of renting a car. No additional fees are charged.

However, when booking, you have the opportunity to include payable options, for example, GPS. You should pay for it later, directly to the rental company.

Age. Restrictions and extra charges

Cheap car rental in United Kingdom is possible for drivers 25 years old and over. Young drivers under 25 may be subject to an extra charge on the spot. Some car rental companies charge an additional fee for drivers aged 71-75 years. Age restrictions of a provider and the amount of an extra charge may be found out when booking a car in United Kingdom on our website by going to the Age Restrictions section.

May I travel outside the United Kingdom in a rented car?

In most cases, you may safely cross borders of neighbouring countries in a rented car. But exceptions are also not uncommon; consult the Border Crossing section.

Travel restrictions

Toll highways

There may be toll roads on your way; you may move around them quickly and without traffic jams. You can pay to use them using cash or card.

Speed limitations

More often than not, these new impressions of the trip will make you feel a bit reckless mad, making you willing to rush through streets of the city a little faster than the rules prescribe. Do not do this; the size of the fines will unpleasantlysurprise you. Therefore, try to keep within the specified speed limit:

If you sum up the information, the average speed of traffic in European cities is 50 km/h, in the countryside it's 80 to 100 km/h.

Payment method

You may pay for your booking using MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, and American Express.

IMPORTANT. It often happens that at the moment of receiving the car receipt, you may be requested to provide your personal credit card. To find out in advance which card you need, carefully read the Payment Methods section in the document with rental terms.

Deposit and credit card information


If a provider does indicate the need to provide a credit card when booking, and you do not have it, check the status of your debit card on www.bindb.com. The fact is that some debit cards are actually credit cards with zero limit. If your card is one of them, you may use it.

Traffic violation fines

Let us return to the conversation about fines. Most of them are imposed for violation of well-known rules of conduct on the road and should be adhered rigorously; you are unlikely to have to deal with the situation on the spot. Therefore, just try to avoid it. However, there are other ways to get into conflict with the law and lose a tangible amount of money:


Be attentive to warning signs and plaques you meet in United Kingdom. All of them are accompanied by pictograms and arranged in such way to understand the rules of conduct even without knowing a foreign language. Anything may lead to a fine, speeding, a spontaneous lunch in the wrong place, or accidentally dropping litter. And do not forget a serious violation may lead you to a trial in court.

Documents required for car receipt

Driver's license
Credit card
Voucher
PLEASE PAY ATTENTION

At the rental company office, you may be required to provide an international driving licence.

Get insured and enjoy tour travel

Full insurance may be taken out on the cars-scanner website or in United Kingdom, at the rental company office.

Carefully read the insurance document; therein, you will find information about what it covers, and how to proceed if an occurrence happens after all.

Our flight was delayed by about 5 hours and we had no way of contacting the company of our late arrival. Naturally we were a bit worried whether our booking would still be in place when we eventually arrive. It was. The paperwork was ready to go and we were in our rented car and on our way within 15 minutes of arrival. The quality of the car was much better than we expected as well. Very clean.

If you plan to have a trip with a rented car, do your search on the website of cars-scanner. They compare all prices and give you the best results for your desired location and time period. It was this way they did for me and I got a good car for a good and resonable price. Good job, guys!

When renting a car, I always look at the completeness of the provided services and consider the final cost. Among different resources, only carsscanner.com offers a full package of insurance and additional options, while on other similar resources these services are often paid.
