Kensington Guide

Guide

Kensington is one of the most chic and fashionable spots in London, rivalled only by Chelsea for high-class suburban living. Exclusive enough to almost be a synonym for glamour, great for tourists as Kensington has plenty to see and do.

It is home to wealthy people, and this is evident from the status symbol cars and the obviously expensive houses that can be found there.

Kensington's hub is Kensington High Street, where many fashionable stores can be found. But it's not really the shopping that Kensington is famous for, it's the houses. Some of the streets are the most expensive addresses in London, with a recent sale of a house in Phillimore Gardens reaching a price of over 20 million.

Three London Underground lines (District, Circle and Piccadilly) cross through the area, so there are no worries about transport in and out of Kensington. If you want to explore the area a bit more then car hire is available from Kensington station and from rental depots within the area itself.

One of the most fascinating aspects of Kensington can be found on the high street, in the shape of the Kensington Roof Gardens. It spans one and a half acres, and sits on top of the former Derry and Toms building. A remarkable place, it contains a Spanish garden, a Tudor style garden, and a garden dedicated to English woodland style, and one of the most exclusive nights out in London can be found there, in the roof gardens. The nightclub hosts barbeque's in the summer and has a fabulous VIP room.

So shop, eat and drink, and then spend the rest of the night in one of the most exciting, and highest clubs in the city.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
