How much does it cost to rent a car?

It’s possible to find a car rental as cheap as £30 a day on the Karshare app.

However, there are two main factors that determine the cost of renting a car:

  • The city you are renting a car in
  • The car type: are you looking for a small car that gets you from A to B for as cheap as possible, or do you want to take a luxury car for a drive? Maybe you're in need of a van or an SUV?


London tends to be more expensive than other cities. You have to also consider the extra Congestion Charge if you are planning to drive in the congestion zone. The Congestion Charge is a £15 daily charge if you drive within the Congestion Charge zone 07:00-22:00, every day, except Christmas Day (25 December). On the other hand, cities like Bristol are much cheaper and there are no congestion charges. See for yourself the difference between Bristol car rental prices and London car rental prices.

Car Type

It’s actually possible to find economic cars in certain cities for less than £30 a day, and in those same cities you can find luxury cars for £100 a day. If you are not concerned with the car type then the cheapest car is your choice. However, if you’re  renting a car for a special occasion then you may fancy  choosing a premium car to drive.  You can explore the range of car rental prices and the various car types by simply searching for a car rental and sorting by lowest price. 

If you’re looking for a van or any other specific car type you can keep the lowest price sorting and filter by your desired car type:
