Traffic Information

Traffic Information

Whether fitting all of London's attractions into a weekend away or a longer stay your car rental will help you check off your itinerary. The city is encircled by an inner ring road, North and South Circular roads and the outer orbital M25. A number of radial routes intersect these main roadways but there really is not direct way into the center of the city. As the city suffers from significant traffic a congestion charge is collected in designated zones of central London. If you plan to drive your Sixt rental vehicle in London's congestion zone you must register the vehicle within 24 hours at an appropriate pay station and pay for each day it will be driven in the zone. We recommend registering and paying on the Transport for London website as it a rather quick and easy.
Those renting from our Sixt Hilton Park location will be near Edgeware Road, a major north-west thoroughfare that starts at the Marble Arch. This former Roman road is now part of today's A5 and its southern end is part of the London Inner Ring Road, making it within the congestion charge zone. However, Edgeware Road is part of the so-called free through routes, meaning drivers are allowed to cross the zone during its operating hours without paying the charge. This central route is known for its rich ethnic diversity. Another major thoroughfare is Southampton Row which runs northwest-southeast through Bloombsbury, Camden and central London. There are many hotels, shops and restaurants along the route.
Those wanting to cross the River Thames to the east will need to use the Dartford Crossing, consisting of the Dartford Tunnel and the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge. The Dartford Crossing, part of the M25 motorway, is one of the busiest and most important road crossings in all of Britain. This is a tolled route and charges must be paid online in advance or by midnight the day after crossing.
Sixt Sightseeing Tips

Sixt Sightseeing Tips

London is a truly remarkable city, with many of the capital's most popular landmarks scattered throughout the central districts. Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace are a few of the popular sights found in the area known as Westminster. The neighboring City of London is another popular area, home to landmarks such as St. Paul's Cathedral and the Gherkin skyscraper.
In addition to its many historical landmarks, London is also one known for its many natural spaces. Hyde Park is easily the most famous public park in London. This massive park is comprised of some 350 acres. The park is separated by a lake known as the Serpentine, which was created in 1730. In addition to Hyde Park, other well-known natural areas include Hampstead Heath and Kensington Gardens.
If you are looking for a more lively side of life in the capital, you may wish to consider a visit to areas such as Camden or Soho. Camden Market is found within the borough of Camden, along with the London Zoo and Camden Arts Centre. Soho, on the other hand, is a popular destination for entertainment venues and nightclubs. Exploring the rich diversity of the many boroughs throughout the city is one of the most popular activities for those who venture to London.

Absolutely great service! I rang to say I would be a bit late as my flight got delayed and Abraham done his best and asked his college to wait as I wouldn’t get in until after they closed. I explained I had a funeral the next morning. Awanthi had waited for me and couldn’t of being anymore helpful. Awanthi went out of her way to send me an email wishing everything went as good as it possibly could and hoped I got home safe. Such lovely people, will be going back to them very soon.

Efficient, polite and friendly customer service. Car in excellent condition. No trouble at all on collection or return of the vehicle. We will definitely book direct with Sixt rather than an intermediary next time, even though it costs a little more.

Customer Service was awesome. Car was great. BUT A $40 PROCESSING FEE FOR A TICKET RECEIVED IS ABSURD! They should be ashamed of themselves!!!
