Car rental pick up--ugh!! Euston?

Jump to last reply

We are staying in London for the first three days of our trip then heading to Bath and various countryside. We would like a car for that portion of our trip (not IN Bath, but for countryside). Thought about taking train to Bath and renting a car there, but cost is higher for pick up/drop off difference plus train ride . . . Our London hotel is very close to Euston train station and Kings Cross, so rental pick up in that area would work as we will end our trip there at same hotel.

Is it crazy to try to drive out of London? We will be leaving first thing- 8ish- on a Saturday morning. Some inconvenience ok, but we don't want hours of congestion. Does anyone have recommendations about catching train vs. getting car there? If not getting car in London, is there a more convenient stop just outside? We'd like to have the car sooner than later to keep luggage as we spend day in Bath before going just past Bristol to a B&B.

Further note: we are both good drivers and not upset by traffic, just don't want to spend all day getting out of town.

Thanks for your input!
