Explore London with your rental car

  • Theme parks: Pack up the hire car and take the kids for a day of thrills and rides. Thorpe Park is one of the best theme parks in the UK with record-breaking rollercoasters. Chessington World of Adventures is particularly great for younger children. Both are just outside London and easily accessible by car.
  • High-end shopping: If you want some of the best shopping in Europe, London has it all. A hire car can come in handy after a spree. Enjoy a trip to Selfridges on Oxford Street or Harrods in Knightsbridge knowing you’ll have plenty of space to carry your bags home.
  • Head to the seaside: If the weather is nice or you simply want to get out of the city, Brighton is just under two hours away from London in your hire car. Famous for its Victorian era pier and general architecture, the seaside resort is full of interesting shops, cafes and pubs.

Summer in London

London is a wonderful place to visit during the summer. When the sun comes out the city is transformed into an outdoor-orientated lively city filled with markets, packed parks, music festivals and more. Consider taking a convertible through the city to Shaftsbury Avenue for some shopping while seeing all the sites along the way like Westminster. There are plenty of outdoor screenings to enjoy including the Rooftop Cinema as well as outdoor screenings of the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament. Some of the best parks to sunbathe in include Richmond Park, huge and filled with deer, or the more central Hyde Park. Londoners look forward to the bank holiday weekend every year at the end of August, in West London there’s the annual Notting Hill Carnival to celebrate - a huge street party with a parade.

New cars and vans all the time. Easy transactions. Very convenient way, to use a vehicle when in need, without owning a one.

A big shout out to Mohammed at Sixt Car Hire, Victoria for the sympathetic and excellent service I received in London recently. The car I had hired through another car hire company was cancelled by them when I arrived to fetch the car! Not very happy about this, I found Sixt Car Hire at Victoria Station and Mohammed sourced a car for me, upgraded the car and made sure my daughter and I traveled in style on our holiday. Thank you Mohammed
