When most people think about transport in London, their mind is drawn to the famous London Underground, or the ‘Tube’ as it’s known colloquially. But not everybody chooses to travel around the capital by public transport, many opting to travel at their own pace in a rental car. London is synonymous with traffic, so much so that the city imposes a congestion charge on all vehicles travelling through the city’s streets. Have a read through Easirent’s guide to the London congestion charge before you hit the road, to make sure that you don’t get caught out.
Some cars however may be exempt from the congestion charge, or at least applicable for a discount, and these are generally the greener more economically friendly cars on the road. If you’re picking up an Easirent hire car from our London Kings Cross Euston branch, then you’re in luck as we have a wide range of brand new electric vehicles available to hire.
The future of driving is green, with the world’s most iconic car brands all competing to produce the lowest emission cars and the most economically friendly vehicles. Electric cars and hybrid cars were once a very niche market, but nowadays electric cars are quickly gaining traction with global car manufacturers, and the chances of them hitting the mainstream in the near future is looking increasingly more likely.
