I plan to be in Yorkshire to catch the first two days of the Tour de France and have booked accommodation in York itself.
I planned to train to Edinburgh the previous week, pick up a rental car and spend several days touring before arriving in York, watching le Tour roadside on the 5th, catching the start in York on the 6th and then catch the train to London where I have an evening rendevous with friends.
My searches reveal that the rental car places in York are closed Sunday and close early on the Saturday. Are there alternatives that would be viable? I'd rather not have to drive it all the way to London. I have been searching sites like Driveaway, Expedia and Auto-Europe.
