Full of history, iconic places and nightlife, London is on most people’s bucket lists. Driving in and around London is a great way to experience the bustling capital and surrounding areas’ offerings, even if you live here. Why not experience it in the comfort of an Enterprise car rental? With our ULEZ (Ultra Low Emission Zone) compliant cars and vans, you can navigate London and its scenic center with ease. Rent a car when you land at Heathrow or Gatwick airports, or get picked-up to be taken to your car if it’s at a non-airport branch when you pre-book . Receive award-winning customer service and a car tailored to your needs – no matter what they are and what you want to do.
The essential items you will need to bring to an Enterprise Rent-A-Car branch when renting a vehicle are a valid drivers license, valid ID, and a credit or debit card. You will also need to prove you are over 25 years of age, and there may be additional documentation required for international drivers. Learn more about what you need when renting here.

The center of London is full of historical landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament alongside world-famous Big Ben, or even Tower Bridge and the medieval Tower of London. An Enterprise rental car can help you explore the many things to do in the surrounding area. Whether you are visiting Richmond Park and Kew Gardens in the South West, a botanical garden with Victorian palm houses and treetop walkways, or the Lee Valley White Water Centre opened for the 2012 London Olympics in North London – both are often easier to reach by car than public transport. By renting a car when in London, you can also venture a bit further outside of the city to keep things interesting. Visit Southend-on-Sea and its pier for a coastal break from the busy city– only an hour’s drive from London. Or if you enjoy hiking, go and explore the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, also about an hour away from London by car.
