Car Rental in the United Kingdom

Car Rental in the United Kingdom

Having a car rental in the United Kingdom allows you to explore the full breadth of what its countries have to offer, from the quaint and bucolic villages of England’s Lake District where a station wagon is a good option, to the vibrant and progressive cities like Liverpool where you may want a sedan, to the seaports in Cornwall. With competitive rates and a wide range of vehicles to choose from, SIXT helps to ensure you have the best car to accommodate your trip. Once you’ve chosen the most suitable option, you’ll have no issue locating it up upon arrival, since SIXT’s many rental locations in the UK are conveniently located at major transportation hubs and near prominent landmarks.

When you rent a car in the United Kingdom, you’ll have the opportunity to choose from a large range of vehicles. If your plan is to visit more rural areas, you may want to book a premium sedan as a long-term rental to accommodate road trips. If you’re traveling with friends and need a weekly rental to facilitate some city-hopping, opt for a station wagon or van. Travelers planning to clock some hours on the road may want to opt for some bookable extras, including an additional driver and GPS.
Best places to visit in the UK

Best places to visit in the UK

  • Inverness: Located in the bottleneck in the north of Scotland, Inverness is a stunning swath of the country that presents visitors with a range of options for enjoyment. While here, you’ll want to book a tour of one of the many whiskey distilleries. The Scottish are known for their whiskey and their stories, so get ready to enjoy the tales.
  • Lake District: On the western side of England, just a couple of hours north of Manchester, is the Lake District—a perfect venue for outdoor enthusiasts. For aquatic adventure, try Coniston Water, which is a great spot for kayaking and canoeing. For scenic hiking trails, venture to Tarn Hows lake.
  • Liverpool: The port city of Liverpool sits on England’s west coast facing the Irish Sea. It’s a vibrant area that’s evolved in recent years. With a wealth of great restaurants offering well-crafted meals, it’s a foodie’s paradise. Before dinner, grab tickets to see either Liverpool or Everton, the city’s two English Premier League soccer teams, or maybe take The Beatles private walking tour.

Upon arrival I was greeted and provided excellent courteous and professional service by Iona. She went above and beyond to in providing service. Iona made sure I understood everything and how to return/drop off rental after hours. Iona is an asset to Sixt and the reason why; I will be using Sixt for my car rentals needs in the future.

Very pleased with the location of Sixt - minutes walk from my T5 arrival. Very straightforward pick-up, no hard sell on extras. I ended the rental at Stansted for a reasonable additional fee. I dropped off the car clean and without damage and there were no surprise additions to the bill.

Excellent first time use of SIXT. Having rented numerous times over the last 3 months, SIXT is significantly better than AVIS, Hertz and Budget. Excellent pick up service from Gustavo Ordonez and then super efficient return at the end of the rental. Will definitely use SIXT in the future as they are also good value for the money.
