  • Because of airport tax, some travelers prefer requesting their London city airport car rental for pickup at city locations. But it is better to pick the rental car at the airport if the car supplier is not offering a free shuttle service to the off-airport office.

Inclusions Offered With Our London City Airport Rental Car Deals

In this section we are covering the inclusions that are offered by our suppliers with their LCY Airport car rentals – they are offered as part of the deal and hence are covered in the rental’s offered price. Besides the ones given below, other inclusions that you can expect to see with your rent-a-car deals are: Licenses and Fees (LAF) and Taxes. The following points explain some of the most common inclusions offered with our deals:

  • Unlimited Mileage

    If unlimited mileage is listed as inclusion on your rental agreement, it means that there is no limit on the number of miles, therefore, no changes will be made to your booked deal’s price by the supplier on the basis of kilometers that you have covered. Unlimited Mileage is specifically best for the renters who are planning a long road trip.

  • Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)

    This is an optional inclusion that is offered by almost all the car rental suppliers. Its presence means that the renter will not have to pay in case the vehicle meets with an accident provided the renter is not found guilty. If the renter has auto insurance, they should get this inclusion removed from the rental agreement.

  • Third Party Liability (TPL)

    This insurance covers the damages done to the third party in the event of an accident. Your own insurance only covers the damages done to the vehicle you are renting but not the other vehicle(s) with which the accident occurs. TLP is the solution that helps in this case.

  • Theft Waiver (THW)

    Theft Waiver inclusion removes the renter’s liability to an extent if the car is stolen, provided the incidence has not occurred because of the renter’s carelessness. Note that personal things lost with the car are not covered by this inclusion.
