London Stansted Airport Car Hire
If you are thinking of hiring a car from Stansted Airport then it is worth booking in advance as this will not only dave you time on arrival at the airport but also often secure you the best deal.
When driving a car in the UK remember that drink driving is a very serious crime in Britain and can result in a prison sentence. The legal limit in the UK is 80mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood, 35mg of alcohol to 100ml of breath, or 100mg of alcohol per 100ml of urine.
Police can ask you to take a breath test at the side of the road if they have any reason to believe that you are over the legal limit. The maximum penalty, if you are convicted of driving or attempting to drive whilst over the legal limit, is six months imprisonment plus a £5,000 fine and a driving ban for at least 12 months.
Car Hire at London Stansted Airport
If you are booking a hire for your holiday, business or pleasure it is important that you take the factors below into account to make the whole process as pleasurable as possible:
- When selecting a vehicle consider your luggage requirements and number of passengers to ensure that you can travel around in comfort.
- If you are planning to use the hire car to cover large distances during your trip, a larger vehicle will often make driving easier
- If your budget permits you may want to hire something a bit special or sporty. A convertible is worth considering during the summer months (but make sure it has a hood because of the unpredictable English weather!) Hiring this type of car for fun also gives you the chance to drive something a bit different to what you are used to
- Where possible take out Damage Excess Waiver with Your Car Hire. This costs about £2.50 per day and gives you the peace of mind that in the event of damage being caused to the car any excess paid will be refunded back to you at the end of the hire as long as you supply a police and accident report form
