Car hire

Does anyone have any advice on car hire in the UK? Is it better/cheaper to arrange before leaving Australia?

Almost certainly you would get a better price by booking in advance rather than walk-up.

Try www.autoeurope.com.au and www.driveaway.com.au

Cheaper to book in advance. Check that you are comparing like for like when you compare quotes (especially details such as insurance cover and "one way" fee - if applicabale).

The deals change week by week, so it is impossible to say who is cheaper, you need to do lots of test bookings to see all the deals.

Just checking (since you posted in London forum) that you want the car for touring out of London, as a car in central London is a huge liability rather than a help.
