So you would like to visit London, you have come to a decision you want to hire a car in London also. You have been online and looked at the comparison sites, the individual sites,  the car rental London corporations and you think you have got a good deal! Just hang on for one minute, because you have found a remarkable £25 a day rental fee doesn’t guarantee you have found an inexpensive rental. You may discover that when you arrive and try to pick your auto up the costs skyrocket at the rental reception. UK taxes, airport surcharges, insurance, licensing fees are merely a few, you might find that the final bill is 3 times what you thought you were paying. It’s true that in the USA the bill total is on average increased by 25 percent by the incorporation of both state and local taxes, some states take the bill even higher to 50%.
 In Europe where the taxes are even greater the final bill can be far worse, Italy is one of the worst culprits with final bills being sometimes an additional 200%, including insurance, local taxes, under age driver charge, a surcharge for not filling the gas tank!
 So the issue is how do you avoid the inescapable extras and how does one decrease the pain you may feel on your wallet, well let’s take a quick look at the most typical offenders.
 Taxes and airport surcharges are the commonest and vary from country to country, if you’d like to hire a car in London you cannot avoid the Worth added tax or VAT as it is known, the present rate is 20%. There may be additional surcharges if you’re picking up and dropping off your car at the airport, you can avoid theses additional charges by finding a rental location close to the airfield and taking a taxi ride to the rental office. Be certain to measure the price paid against the inconvienience of public transport.
 Insurance is a new big black hole of extra charges, this is normally referred to by rental firms as collision damage waiver or loss damage waiver, here’s where you pay an additional amount every day, this amount can occasionally be equivalent to the rental amount, so as to avoid culpability in the unfortunate event of an accident. So long as you are innocent of gross negligence you will avoid needing to pay out for the damages caused to the auto. You might like to see whether your usual vehicle insurance will cover this car hire, some times your credit card company will cover the insurance. If not there are some great online policy suppliers that can help to save you a lot of money
 We also have to discuss petrol or gas costs, you may often pay a high premium for returning a car with an empty tank of gas, so in most cases do not forget to fill up before you return the vehicle. Some rental corporations give the option of purchasing a full tank of gas when you first take the car, this assists you to return the car with as much or as small fuel as you wish
