Euston, St Pancras and Kings Cross Car Hire
Euston, St Pancras and Kings Cross are three of London's busiest railway stations through which visitors from the North and Midlands, as well as Paris and Brussels flood every day, so it's perhaps not surprising that car hire companies have based themselves around these stations in numbers.
For those inexperienced in driving in London, it is perhaps worth considering whether these locations are the best place to start your car hire, or whether travelling on to the outskirts of the capital by public transport might not be a better idea. As well as the more aggressive style of driving you are likely to encounter in the capital, there is also the congestion charge which applies during the week, and for which you, as the car hirer, are liable for.
Car hire at Kings Cross, Euston or St Pancras is ideal though for Londoners wanting to get out of town for a few days, as well as business travellers.
Euston, Kings Cross and St Pancras Car Hire Top Tips
- Make sure you understand the Congestion Charge - it applies in London but you can avoid it if you hire the right car. See the official Congestion Charge website.
- If you are staying in the capital don't rent a car while you are there unless you have parking arranged. Parking charges can be huge in the centre of town.
- One way car hire is a good idea if you are driving into Euston, St Pancras or Kings Cross - drop off your rental car and then hire another for your return trip.
- It's always worth checking prices from other locations (say London Heathrow) too. Central London prices are often at a premium.
