For anyone looking to book car hire in the UK it's well worth checking out Europcar but...don't use the europcar.co.uk site. Both europcar.com and europcar.com.au are significantly cheaper.
Eg VW Passat for 4 days AUD349 v GBP401

I have had problems booking via the .au website as it errors out when you go to pay. This is not a problem with the .com site

There is also cashback available. Cashrewards and shopback track to the .au website but you can use topcashback.com (check out the Referral Offers thread) to access the europcar.com one

I've experienced significant pricing discrepancies with Hertz too when booking in South Africa. Differences between the AU, US and ZA sites. Ridiculous really.

Actually come to think of it, same for Hertz when booking in Germany.

A follow up to this-received an email claiming that I had cancelled when I had not. Chat said to contact the LHR station. 100% sure they didn't like the price I paid
