Good afternoon/evening to you all, I have been thinking about hiring a car on a future UK visit. (Will likely need to be when I am older than 25 as I can't find a company that will let me hire a car at my age) Is it possible/expensive to hire an automatic easily or am I better off learning manual beforehand? I only know how to drive automatic, but can take lessons in a manual in Canada. My grandmother says that the UK/England have automatics and I shouldn't worry about it. But I have limited money, so I can't afford to pay a lot extra for an automatic hire. I'll learn manual if I have to. I think I'm eager to get driving in the UK and learn to drive on the left side of the road.
