Don’t Rent a GPS From the Car Rental Company

If you plan to rent a car while in Britain – we don’t recommend renting a GPS navigation unit (the Brits call them Sat-nav’s) from the car rental company. They can cost $20-30 a day to rent – which is really expensive for something so simple.

It’s tempting though – a device that will direct you exactly where you need to go on Britain’s confusing spaghetti roads.

But as long as you have a good roadmap or an iPhone (GPS is free, maps will cost you data roaming so plot your trip out on WiFi before setting off) – you don’t need to spend the money on an already expensive car rental for the privilege of driving directions.

I always have the spouse navigate with the roadmap – it’s more fun this way anyway!
