Welcome to The Car Rental Centre

We believe in offering value for money and great rates on your car rental. We compare car hire deals from all the major UK car hire companies like Thrifty, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, Sixt, Avis, Alamo and more to find you the best deal car rental.

•Why use the car rental centre to arrange your next car rental?
We always put the customer first and will always show you the best deal on your car rental. Unlike many other providers that offer car rental, flights and hotels, we only concentrate on hiring cars in the UK, so we command better deals from the car rental providers, which means you get a better deal when renting with us. 

We will always commit to showing only the best deals with the lowest price. Our car hire system allows you to sort your car rental deals how you want to see them. 

So, if you have a favourite rental company, you can sort your results accordingly. Likewise, if you are looking for the best value car hire deal again in a few clicks of a button, you have that sorted. You will also see we have actual customer feedback on the providers, giving you valuable insight into how customers felt when renting. 


•What should I know before booking a car hire?
OK, think about your needs. How many suitcases will you be travelling with? 
Are you going to be doing many long journeys with your rental car? 
If you are, you might want to choose something bigger and a rental deal with unlimited mileage. 

•Will you have children with you?  
You will need to consider the car's size to ensure they are comfortable in the rear. If you are travelling with little ones, we offer you the ability to book children's seats for safety. We are here to guide you through renting a car in the UK. 

•Can I collect a car rental return to a different location in the UK?
Sure, we call this a one-way car rental. You collect it from one town or Airport and return it to another. All you need to do is select drop my car off at a different location when getting your car hire quote from us. As always, our car rental quote will fully include these fees, so you won't have any last-minute surprises. 

•What do I need to book a rental car in the UK?
You will need a car rental reservation with us to collect your car. You will also need to bring your ID, such as a passport and Drivers Licence; you will also need to present your credit card or Debit card for payment. If you are coming into an airport and have your return ticket is always worth having this on hand.

•What is the cheapest an Airport or Downtown location to rent my car from?
Car rental in the UK has a dynamic rate structure, and sometimes, different Airport locations offer spot deals. So we always suggest getting additional car rental quotes from other locations to compare for the best car hire deal.

•Age Requirements in The UK to  Rent A Car 
More often, if you are over 23 and under 79, renting a car in the UK has no extra fee. However, if you are 18 to 22, the rental provider will often add a young driver's fee to your rental. If you check the booking terms when you get your quote, you will see an option to select your age range.  

•Can I Take My Rental Car Into Europe?
Yes, of course, you can, and it would be great if you had the time to view some of the major European cities. All you need to do is let the rental agent know this is your intention, and they will tick a box on the agreement so the car can be taken overseas. This allows the car hire insurance and breakdown cover to be extended to cover outside the UK.
