Traffic violation fines

Let us return to the conversation about fines. Most of them are imposed for violation of well-known rules of conduct on the road and should be adhered rigorously; you are unlikely to have to deal with the situation on the spot. Therefore, just try to avoid it. However, there are other ways to get into conflict with the law and lose a tangible amount of money:


Be attentive to warning signs and plaques you meet in United Kingdom. All of them are accompanied by pictograms and arranged in such way to understand the rules of conduct even without knowing a foreign language. Anything may lead to a fine, speeding, a spontaneous lunch in the wrong place, or accidentally dropping litter. And do not forget a serious violation may lead you to a trial in court.

Age restrictions for car rental in United Kingdom

Please note that drivers under 25 and over 70 are often less trusted at the provider's office and are subject to an extra payment when renting. Visit the Age Restrictions section to find out how a driver of your age group is charged when booking.

Toll highways

There may be toll roads on your way; you may move around them quickly and without traffic jams. You can pay to use them using cash or card.

Payment method

MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, and American Express cards are accepted for booking payments.
PLEASE NOTE that some rental points accept credit cards only. In order not to find out about this at the time when you receive the car, carefully read the Payment Methods section before travelling.

Deposit and credit card information

You have read the terms and found out that the credit card is really needed, but you do not have it? Before you do anything, check the type of your current debit card on www.bindb.com. Some banks issue credit cards as debit cards with zero limit. If your card is one on them, you are very lucky. It is also suitable for booking.

How to get an additional discount in United Kingdom

We care about your budget and in conjunction with rental companies of United Kingdom, we regularly make deals and launch special offers. Start monitoring prices for dates you are interested in right at the beginning of planning your trip, so you have a better chance to rent a car with the maximum benefit. The most reasonable time is 2-4 months before the start of the rental time within normal periods and 3-6 months within the high season.

When you book, you fix the cost indicated on the current date. If the trip for some reason will not take place, you may cancel the booking free of charge 24 hours before the start of the rental time.

Border crossing policy

In most cases, you may safely cross borders of neighbouring countries in a rented car. But exceptions are also not uncommon; consult the Border Crossing section.

Travel restrictions

Speed limitations

More often than not, these new impressions of the trip will make you feel a bit reckless mad, making you willing to rush through streets of the city a little faster than the rules prescribe. Do not do this; the size of the fines will unpleasantlysurprise you. Therefore, try to keep within the specified speed limit:

If you sum up the information, the average speed of traffic in European cities is 50 km/h, in the countryside it's 80 to 100 km/h.

Cancellation and modification of order without penalties within 24 hours

If the details of your trip have changed, and you do not need a booked car, there are no problems.

We will replace your booking free of charge, if you contact us at least 24 hours before the start of the rental time.

Cancellation less than 24 hours will cost you 50 EUR; the rest will be returned to your account.

Carefully read the cancellation policy for cars participating in deals and special offers; some of them may change their cancellation conditions.

Prices for petrol/diesel in United Kingdom

Petrol stations are located on the outskirts of United Kingdom, so it is better not to go to the city centre with the empty tank. You are allowed to transport fuel in a canister in the city, so you may, for your own calmness, buy and fill a 10-litre container with the right kind of petrol or diesel.
Approximate prices for fuel:


Additional local fees

When you rent a car via the cars-scanner service, you get a full turnkey package without any additional fees. The only exception is the countries, in which a fee or a tax is required by law.

However, you may choose options that are not included in the basic rental package, for example, a child seat or additional ski equipment storage. You will find out their price in advance and will be able to pay on website, at the rental company office.

Extra charge for car return in other city

To find out the possibility and cost of returning a rented car in another city, check the box "return to another place" and search for options. In the search results, only those rental companies will be displayed that allow you to return cars to another location. The price indicated on our website already includes the one-way tariff.

I was going to rent a car via one of the sites. I was confused by high price. I tried to find a car via carsscanner.com and it immediately gave a cheaper option even with the included insurance. Now I use only it. I strongly recommend it to everyone who wants to save money!

We spent time in Holland. We drove by a rented car. Via this resource the cost was very low. The site helped to find the best options. We'll use it again. Search is always quite fast.
