Heathrow Airport rental cars may be either automatic OR manual transmission. Make sure to verify when booking if you are not comfortable with a manual transmission.

An International Drivers' Permit (or IDP) may be required, especially if your local drivers' licence is in a language other than the local language (you may inquire when you pick up your car).

London Driving Stress Level: 7/10

Driving in London has a certain stigma attached to it (especially for those who have never tried it). London is one of the busiest cities in the world and, naturally, traffic can be horrendous but do not let that put you off. As long as you're well prepared and able to stay relatively calm you will be fine.
