The cost of rented car will unlimited mileage, standard insurance packages, but the additional equipment and accessories – car seats, or navigator, roof rack – have to pay extra. The movement in the country and in the city left hand, need to get used to that, so the first day (especially if you have not been to London) try to ride calm and measured.

I must say that in London quite courteous drivers, and the crime situation (if you do not call in certain areas, enjoying an unfortunate reputation) quiet. And yet, to feel confident and not worry about the possible consequences of force majeure, you can take out insurance with no deductible in the process of booking a car online Travelocars or in most rental company. The cost of insurance in the full version will not hit too expensive, because the car is leased in a few months, and for days, but calm markedly increase.
