Cycle Round London’s Monuments
London’s tubes can often be very stressful, especially during rush hour, making travelling above ground a much nicer, airier option to enjoy a more scenic experience. Using the Santander Cycle hire for as little as £2, simply pay and ride from one of the 750 locations across London, allowing you to find many hidden gems and beautiful views of the River and skyline.
If you prefer being behind the wheel, you can navigate London’s roads using E-Car, our all-electric car club. Hire starts from as little as £4.50 p/hour (including power & insurance). As the UK’s leading low-emission car club with low-emission vehicles from Southend-on-Sea to the Outer Hebrides in Scotland. Once you’re a member, just unplug and drive! A great option for residents and visitors alike.
Travel in Luxury
Being a lady or gent of leisure is commonplace in London, with the capital’s highest concentration of wealth located in Chelsea, Kensington, Knightsbridge and Notting Hill. Private car hire, luxury taxis and chauffeurs are therefore not uncommon. As a visitor or resident in London you can ‘fake it ‘till you make it’ using Brunel’s Chauffeur service. So sit back, relax and enjoy the sights for less than you think!
If you’re looking for something a little more long term for an extended trip or weekend break outside of the city, Europcar can help with any of your car hire needs from any one of our 40+ London branches.
