Any advice on what car companies to use in England. Plan on travelling around england for a week and will be using a rental car. What are good companies to use? any things I should watch out for?

I used Hertz for two weeks around the UK in 2011. Picked it up from Heathrow and dropped it off at Gatwick. Everything went smoothly and my only regret was realising in Spain that I had left a new world atlas in the hire car! :(

Enterprise have been good in the past for me, often cheaper than others. Don't know if they have many airport locations though if you needed that.

car hire centre or moneysupermarket offer good deals in my view ...
otherwise, if you and your friends are looking for travel buddies, i have some free time to travel around the uk and may consider joining in on the trip and simply bringing my car.

I used EasyCar when I was there. Cheap and easy.

Only complaint was that we had a flat tire at one point (our own fault, not a problem with the car) and the tire iron in the car did not match the lugs on the wheels. Made putting on the spare a bit of a challenge!
