How to move to the UK (London) on your own: a step by step guide
1. Van rental
You can rent a van to go to the UK in most of the more upscale van rentals; however, always let them know in advance that you are going to the UK. They will charge between 1,500 and 2,200 CZK (60–90 euros) per day.
You should be able to move to London in 3 days, which means that the van should not cost you more than 6,600 CZK or 250 euros.
To save on fuel, follow this simple principle: diesel fuel is always cheaper when you are not on a highway. Diesel fuel is also cheaper in the Czech Republic than in Germany but it is cheaper in Germany than in other countries. We recommend using this petrol station in the Czech Republic; in Germany, we recommend this petrol station on the way there and this one on the way back.
You overall fuel costs are mostly determined by the size of the van.
Van fuel consumption:
10 m3 – around 8l/100km
15 m3 – around 10l/100km
22 m3 – around 14l/100km
In other words, you will need about 240 litres of fuel for a round trip to London with a 15m3 van (Prague to London and back: 2,500 km), which will cost you about 8,000 CZK (about 310 euros).
