Old Kent Road Guide

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.

Frequently asked questions

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).
