Here is the latest information concerning COVID-19 and renting a car on DiscoverCars.com.

Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.

If you do travel, we want you to be as safe as possible while doing so. Thus, we have added information in our search results letting you know which rental companies are disinfecting their vehicles to prevent the spread of the virus.

Use the filter on the left-hand side of the search results to only see vehicles that are confirmed to be thoroughly disinfected.

We understand your need for flexibility.

We’d like to tell you that we’ve become more flexible, but the truth is that we were always flexible. If you need to change the dates of your rental or you decide to travel somewhere else, you can modify your booking in the My Booking section without charge (although the rental price may change).

FAQ

Does my rental car have a mileage limit?
Mileage limitations vary across rental companies and rental offers. Please see the rental conditions for the offer you are interested in to find out the number of miles included (or it includes unlimited mileage).
Would it be possible to use a debit card to pay for the rental?
While it is possible to use a debit card on our website, a credit card is usually required to pick up the car. There are some companies that will accept debit cards, though. Be sure to check the payment policy section of the rental conditions to see if a company accepts debit cards or not.
Is there any insurance to remove the deductible or reduce it to zero?
It is usually possible to purchase additional coverage at the rental desk that would eliminate the deductible. In many cases, a small deposit is still required to cover incidentals. An alternative, if you are willing to leave a larger deposit, is to purchase our Full Coverage which is usually significantly cheaper and will reimburse you for any part of the deductible that you pay to the rental company for damage or theft.
Is road assistance provided?
It depends on the vehicle you choose. It is included in most, but not all, offers. Be sure to check the description of the car you choose to be sure.

London was easy but you do have to pay parking fees to most places you go. A Gps sat nave is essential.

Renting a car to go to central London is not the brightest idea. To the contrary it is perfect to drive around in the nice surroundings.
