Hiring a van in London

Although the inner Ring Road, the M25, is the major route travelled by most people trying to get into London, there are very few motorways which actually enter London. The M1, M3 and M4, all head towards London, as does the major routes of the M40, M20, M23 and the A1(M), but all either connect with the M25, or peter out into smaller roads. The M25 is notorious for traffic jams and low average speeds, if you are in the London suburbs it is worth considering collecting and returning your van from one of the many Central London van rental locations to avoid possible delays.
Most of the larger van hire suppliers have rental stations in and around the capital where you can collect and drop off your rental van.
