Re: Citizenship Application Timeline

I had to submit, my wife didn't. I've a "common" name, my wife's name is one-of-a-kind! Google yourself, if there's lots of you then likely you'll need do fingerprints. That's my take anyway.

Re: Car hire in UK/Europe from Canada?

Yes - I forgot to put this - but it's exactly what I did. I don't think it's made a huge difference on the rates though worth it all the same.
