Renting a Car with hiyacar: how it works

It's very simple to sort car hire in central London! All you have to do is:

  • Create an account - You'll have to register with us and complete a profile with some information - this includes a driver's license!

Driving around London

Once you’ve signed up to Hiyacar and are behind the wheel of your car hire in central London, you’ll be able to get out there and start exploring!

Here are a few driving tips to remember when driving with your car hire in central London. Firstly don't forget that there is a congestion charge if you drive into central London, some of our cars have this built into the pricing and will be specified if so, but it is something to be aware of. The congestion charge area is vaguely defined within the London Inner Ring Road; this also includes the financial district in the City of London, alongside the West End. As of 2019, the ULEZ charge has also been introduced within this area to keep the air cleaner.

Bus lanes are reserved solely for the use of buses and taxis within certain times, so make sure to avoid them during this period, otherwise you could receive a penalty charge for entering one. The speed limit varies dramatically from type of road and area you’re within. A lot of built up residential areas are now 20mph, single carriage motorways are 60mph and dual carriageways 70mph, but pay careful attention to the signs which will tell you the rules for the area.
