“The little extra luxury didn't happen...”

“Rented a car through this site October 2019. The car was to be an Opel Corsa or similar and the supplier Alamo shown on the website as "Best supplier on the list" and "a little extra luxury". When I arrived I found out that Alamo does not have its own desk or cars at Heraklion Airport so I was directed to the Enterprise desk who supplied me with an old model Nissan Micro with 60,000K plus Kms and I was just too tired to argue. I just think if you advertise a supplier as "best on the list" and "a little extra luxury" then they should at the very least have their own desk and nearly new vehicles.”

Old Kent Road Guide

Car hire Old Kent Road

Made famous for being the cheapest street for property on the original Monopoly board, Old Kent Road in southeast London, England, has been given some unduly bad press. If you are visiting today, however, you will probably fail to understand why, as the road is now much more upmarket and perfectly placed for tours into central London. Many therefore choose to pick up car hire at Old Kent Road.

Old Kent Road forms part of the old Roman road which connected Dover to Holyhead and was once travelled by pilgrims on route to Canterbury. The road has a rather violent history, as the junction now known as Shornecliff Road was once the bridge of St Thomas-a-Waterings that marked the end of the authority of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

This status as a sort of 'no man's land' meant that Old Kent Road was once the site of public executions of religious dissenters, with many Protestants and Catholics burned to death here of left in the stocks to starve. With cheap car hire in Old Kent Road you can visit these sights, as well as the historic Thomas a Becket pub which derives its name from this period.

There is quite a bit of decent shopping to be had nowadays on Old Kent Road, with many popular British outlets setting up shop in the past decade. Burgess Park is also located here and it is a great spot from which to travel to central London with car rental in Old Kent Road.

Here you will find many famous landmarks and museums, such as Nelson's Column, Trafalgar Square, the London Dungeons and the British Museum. The London Eye in the city's South Bank also offers panoramic views from a Ferris wheel-type contraction.
