Driving in England/Ireland

Jump to last reply

My initial questions are should I rent the GPS that comes w/the rental car or buy a GPS here & bring it along (yes I don't have a GPS) or buy a GPS there?
Also, would it make more sense to leave the car in England for a few days and do a new rental in Ireland instead of taking the car over on the ferry...it's looking like this might be cheaper.
Finally (at least for now) I'm flying into Heathrow and planning to spend my first couple days in London without a car, and then get the rental as I begin traveling the country. Does it make most sense to go back to Heathrow to get the rental car, or should I just rent for someplace near where I'm staying in London (which I havene't figured out yet).
PS I'm leaving early September, staying a few weeks!
