United Kingdom - Car models and reference cost of rent

In order to see the daily average cost of a car, select a model from the list.

An important detail! Please note that the price for the same car may differ by 20 - 30% depending on the car rental point.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

During the working trip on the company's business I had to move to the neighboring city quite unexpectedly. I rented a car via this site (online) just for fun and paid for it, while I was in the required city. Everything was done quickly and easily. I didn't even expect such results, although I use this site quite often. So I saved time and money, as a large package of options was already included.

I'd like to thank the creators of the website for their nice service and update information about peculiarities of car rental in different countries. I used them for my travel in Italy starting in Rome. Beside good price I learnt about the traffic in Italy and it was of great help for me.
