Car

This can be a very cost effective way to see much of the United-Kingdom, especially if you want to see some of the smaller towns and villages. Cars also give you the freedom to go where you want when you want. There are several car hire companies within the United-Kingdom, whose prices usually start from about 20 a day with discounts being offered for longer periods of hire. If you have never before driven in the United-Kingdom it is wise to become acclimated to the unique style of driving employed by locals before hiring a car.
When driving for the first time in Britain, round abouts (circles) may prove to be problematic for inexperienced drivers, and unfortunately round abouts are generally unavoidable. The basic rules are go clockwise round them and keep to the inside if your exit is not first.
