London, Great Britain: Hatchback Rental
The most popular models representing the mini, compact, and economy car segments in London are: Peugeot 107, Toyota Aygo, Hyundai Atos, Mini Classic, Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Accent and others.

When hiring a budget hatchback, it is definitely worth saving on insurance deposit (franchise). Deposits on small cars in Great Britain vary from 100 to 1.000 euro/dollars. Check the rental conditions of each car in your selection to find a vehicle with a minimum deposit.

If your routes in Great Britain are foreseen to pass through hilly areas or mountains, it is not recommended to consider very small cars for rental. Their engines are usually insufficient for a confident driving on the roads with long or steep climbs.

At the rental office in London, consider to take a 'Breakdown Assistance' package or ask an officer for a contact data to use in case of a vehicle breakdown. Cheap cars are sometimes unpredictable in operation.

Upon receipt of the rental invoice, please check that all the information, as well as the final payment amount do match the data in your voucher.

OrangeSmile.com wishes you a safe and great trip to London!
