KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Beckenham

  • Beckenham is a town in Southeast London with rail, tram and bus links connecting it to the capital. Getting around is easy enough, but these public transport means are limited by schedules and timetables which are subject to change and can interfere with your travel plans. Car hire in Beckenham offers you the convenience to discover the town at your leisure and the freedom to range far beyond the borough of Bromley. Park Langley is a prime recreation spot with golf course just 2 miles from the town centre whereas the National Maritime Museum is located at Greenwich Park, approximately, 8 miles north via the A2212.
  • Three major airports lie within 20 miles of Beckenham. London City Airport (about 8 miles) is closest, but many passengers prefer to land at London Gatwick (18 miles) or London Heathrow (19 miles) airports. All three have car hire centres which are well-represented by major providers like Avis, Europcar and SIXT making it easy to pick-up a vehicle for your travels. You must be at least 21 years of age to drive off in a compact car, SUV or mid-sized saloon and airport providers levy additional charges on all drivers below 25 years of age.
  • Before you leave the airport in your Beckenham car hire, always make sure your passengers are wearing seatbelts and plug-in your hands-free mobile device. Drive on the left-side of the road and observe all posted road and traffic signs as you go. CCTV cameras are in active use along the way, so be careful of oncoming traffic (especially motorcycles and bikes) and be alert for crossing pedestrians ahead. It is illegal to operate a car hire in the UK under the influence of drugs or alcohol, so drive sensibly at all times and be courteous to fellow motorists.
  • The A23 (west) and A205 (north) are major roads, but the A232 (south) is the main artery for inbound/outbound traffic to Beckenham. The A222 and A2015 move vehicular traffic around the town centre, so expect some congestion during the morning and evening rush hour periods near the War Memorial, Beckenham Green and Beckenham Junction. Beckenham High Street is the central commercial zone and experiences high pedestrian and vehicular volumes between 1pm-3pm during the peak tourist season from June-August.
  • Book your car hire in Beckenham at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

On roads through less populated areas and on single carriageways, you should proceed at about 60 mph (96 km/h) and be sure not to exceed 70 mph (112 km/h) when driving along dual carriageways and motorways. Always remember that CCTV cameras are always active around town so obey the speed limits at all times.

Pros:

Everything was good. Pick up went well, van was clean and quite new.

Cons:

The excess was high at £1150 and to bring it down to £250 would have doubled the cost. Seems a lot proportionate to risk.
