We are pleased to be able to offer our clients cheap car hire rates from all of England's municipal airports plus the main international airport at Heathrow. England has twenty municipal airports that are used by the major budget airlines. In lots of cases, the local airports are located a considerable number of miles from the cities that they are intended to service and public transport to and from them can be sporadic at best.
Whether you are visiting the country or if you live here, we offer discounted car hire from two of the UK's leading car rental companies. Our website has online quotes and bookings providing cheap car rental in England. Both of our car hire suppliers employ dedicated support staff who are at the end of the telephone ready to answer any extra questions that might arise before or after renting the vehicle.
Birmingham was the home of Neville Chamberlain and the creator of The Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkein, is home to arguably the best chocolate manufacturer in the world and that tasty cup of Typhoo Tea.
England is the largest and most heavily populated country in the United Kingdom. It has more than 80% of the total UK population, occupies most of the southern two-thirds of the island of Great Britain and shares land borders with Scotland to the north and Wales to the west. Elsewhere, it is bordered by the North Sea, Irish Sea, Atlantic Ocean, and English Channel.
The country has a population of around 50 million with over a quarter of them living in and around the big three areas of Greater London, West Midlands and Greater Manchester. Although traffic can be horrendous on occasions, there is a huge network of motorways around the country and driving the car is still the most popular means of transport, providing a huge market for car rental companies.
England is well serviced by domestic air, land and sea routes.
There are taxi firms everywhere (many are by booking only - find the phone number of the local company and phone ahead), and every town has a bus service.
England has one of the highest densities of railway lines per square mile in the world. There has been much improvement and investment in recent years to the railway network and rolling stock but delays and cancellations do occasionally occur. Overcrowding can be a problem in large cities, especially at 'rush-hour' times (7am - 9am & 5pm - 7pm, Monday to Friday) so it is best to avoid these times when tickets can be expensive as well.
Buses are numerous, frequent and reliable in most of the larger towns and cities and an ideal way of getting around. Rural areas are less well served and hiring a car is the best option to explore the countryside and villages.
The speed limit, unless otherwise stated, is 60 mph (approx 95 kmph) on single carriageways and 70 mph (approx. 110 kmph) on dual carriageways. The traditional British 'reserve' and politeness may occasionally dissolve under the stress of congestion on the major routes, especially with the traffic problems in some of England's larger cities, but generally driving around Britain is an enjoyable experience and it is polite to acknowledge the courtesy of another driver with a nod or the raising of the hand as a form of thankyou.
