“the one part of my trip that I have nothing to worry about”

“I have made use of this site many times over the past years, always happy with the service provided. I have recommended this site to many friends and travel forums due to the simplicity to book and compair cars. I do have some suggestions, to start with I always end up researching the model of the car to get a more informative knowledge of the car size and interiors, including to luggage space. An other suggestion is to provide the user with more information on how to get to the front desk of the car rental companies as some airports are a bit of a problem to get around then others (especially when you need to get a bus to go to the pick up area) Contact details of the rental office, on my last pick up my flight was delayed and the desk had closed by the time i arrived, (managed to find the desk representative who very kindly reopened not to leave me wait 6 hours till the next day) I explained that the flight had been delayed and he suggested to call them to let them know butI had no contact details for their desk. On an other occasion I wanted a car with snow tiers and not chains, I put down the remark but I only found out that they did not have snow tiers when I got to the pick up, if there was a way to ask questions online and get an answer I would be able to make a better choice. An other thing which I think could help your clients is to give them a small lesson on how to pick up and return a car. What I mean is that from past experience I have learnt to take photos of the car condition, rental contracts, milage, fuel level and interiors before and after use. This has saved me from car rental ripoffs on various occasions. One last thing, on a recent lease from you I took a full cover as usual for a car rented from eurocar. On picking up the car the desk rep asked if I wanted to take a full cover and I told him that I took a cover with the car rental broker. He looked at the papers and noted that the excess they require by his company was by far higher then the one insured with you.”

Introduction

The British capital is also called ‘Europe's most swinging city’. London is (together with New York, Paris and Tokyo) one of the four main capitals of the world. The city is full of history, has several major museums (the majority with free entrance), accommodates one of the best club scenes on earth and comprises an incredible offer of restaurants. Moreover, the city is a shopping paradise with large department stores, designer shops and small boutiques. 

Population

London city has 7.5 million inhabitants, however the entire London Metropolitan Area has more than 12 million inhabitants, which makes it the largest metropolis of the European Union.

Location

London was founded by the Romans in 43 BC. The city is situated in the southeast of England on the River Thames, which flows through London from west to east. It is a very large city, Greater London comprises more than 1,500 square kilometers.

Economy

London is one of the most important trade centers on earth and the most important financial center of Europe. Many large banks and corporations have their (European) head office in the British capital. The city is also an important media center, the BBC is the most important employer, but also other radio stations and television channels are based in London, together with large newspapers and publishers.

Furthermore, tourism is important for London's economy with 16 million annual visitors.

For a long time now, the Port of London is not the largest port of the United Kingdom anymore, nevertheless the trans-shipment volume is still considerable, a yearly amount of 50 million (metric) tons.

Airports

The city has as many as five airports. Heathrow Airport (24 kilometers to the west of the city center) is the largest airport, thereafter comes London Gatwick, 45 kilometers to the south of the city, along the M23 highway, and Stansted Airport, about 50 kilometers to the northeast of London. Luton Airport is located 51 kilometers to the north of the city and is mainly used by budget airlines. The smallest City Airport is the most centrally located of all (in the east part of town, near the Docklands) and is mainly used by business travelers.

Public transport

Public transport in the British capital is excellent. First of all there is the subway (‘The Tube’), the fastest and most convenient way to reach your destination in London. Even though the subway system is already very extensive, in the next few years a further extension is being worked on for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. 

It is impossible to imagine London without its red double decker buses, it is certainly not the fastest means of transport, but great fun and nice for sightseeing at the same time.

At night almost all buses leave from Trafalgar Square, be aware that these buses only stop on request.

Traffic and parking

Although you can perfectly use the car outside the center of London, it is definitely not recommendable to go downtown by car. The city also seeks to discourage this by charging a toll (‘Congestion Charge’) for entering the downtown area, additionally, it is hard to find parking spaces and the parking rates are high.

Hotels

London does not have any lack of hotels, which ranges from friendly bed & breakfasts to classic and elegant hotels and hypermodern and luxurious accommodation. You need to take into account that London is not only a major tourist attraction, but also an important business center, therefore it is recommendable to book your room well in advance if you wish to have an accommodation close to the city center.
