Renting a Car in London City Airport without an Excess Held on Your Credit Card

The car will be fully insured for theft and accidents included in the rental fee you'll see the website. This type of insurance is known as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

All of our rentals in London City Airport come with CDW in the price displayed, there's also usually an insurance excess, this excess is held on your credit card when yoyu pick up the car. The insurance excess is the total amount you would be required to pay if the vehicle is stolen, written off or severely damaged. The the excess amount on hire cars can be very high. It's normally between £800 to £2,100. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you will be required to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

On collection of the car, the excess is held on your card as a 'pre-auth' transaction. This means that the money isn't taken from your card as a regular payment, it's held as a pending payment until you return the vehicle. You won't normally have to pay foreign currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised payments, so provided the car is returned in the same condition as when it was collected, this excess amount is fully refunded to your credit card with nothing further to pay.

If you intend to pay for your rental by debit card, the insurance excess amount will be taken from your bank account and fully refunded when the vehicle is dropped off. If you intend to use debit card on collection, as the excess is often very high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover on our website or to pay for top up cover at the collection desk.

To view car hire options in London City Airport with a £0 or reduced insurance excess check out our Premium Cover rental options.

Car Hire in London City Airport with Cross Border Fees Included

If you'd like to collect your rental in London City Airport and take it across the border into a different country, we strongly recommend to check the terms and conditions.

If you do not let them know, you might find that the rental car will not be insured when you cross over into a different country.

You can find the details of cross border policies by checking the Rental terms and viewing the Cross Border Rules section.

If you cant find the cross border terms and conditions get in touch with one of our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

The mileage allowance for the whole rental duration is calculated as (the number of rental days multiplied by the daily allowance). You don't have to remain within the daily allowance on every day, provided that the total miles used during the rental does not exceed the number of days multiplied by the daily allowance.

If you choose a limited mileage rental, we recommend checking the costs for excess mileage. You can find these in our T&Cs section.

Flight destination car hire ideas from London City Airport

About London City Airport

London City Airport services primarily business passengers due to its convenient location between London City and Canary wharf: the twin centres of London's financial industry.

The Airport is relatively new, only being built in 1986 and only accommodates smaller, fixed-wing aircraft. While most of the passengers are businessmen, the Airport has gained momentum in the leisure industry in recent years with the opening of flights to Palma de Mallorca and other holiday destinations. Despite its relatively small size, London City serviced over 5 million passengers in 2019 with the majority coming in from mainland Europe. It is the fifth busiest airport in the London area and 14th busiest in the UK. Before the 2012 London Olympics, seven million pounds were invested in the Airport to help manage the additional air traffic caused by the games.

The Airport is situated very close to the London Docklands and resides between the Gallions Point Marina and the River Thames. The marina forms a sort of moat around the Airport and adds a layer of aesthetic beauty to the otherwise industrial site. The Airport has only one two-story building serving as its terminal. The Airport is about 35 minutes from central London and a little less than thirty minutes from Canary wharf. The ground floor of the terminal is used for check-in desks, departure gates, and other facilities while the upper floor is for security, a waiting area, and several other small shops. The Airport has no jet bridges and walk-on boarding is used for all flights. The Docklands light railway connects the Airport to both Canary Wharf and London city and is located in London City Airport DLR Station which is adjoined to the terminal building. This train provides quick access to most of London's popular destinations, but you can also manage transport via the Elizabeth line, road access, local buses, and even riverboat.

London City experiences its busiest passenger volume during the winter months. During this season there is an increase in departing flights for ski vacations to places like Milan, Andorra, and Switzerland. The cheapest month for flights to London City is August. Car hire prices don't fluctuate too much at this Airport, however, it is advised to book your car hire and your flight at least two months in advance to ensure you get the optimal value for your purchase.

The main parking lot at London City Airport is only a short walk from the terminal building. Some of the functions of the lot include a pick-up zone, valet parking, special needs assistance, car sharing, motorcycle, and bicycle parking, and a few other things you can learn more about here. The Airport has options for both short and long term parking.
