London Airport Gatwick Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at London Gatwick Airport! Then visit world-renowned landmarks like Trafalgar Square, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, and the Gherkin. London has countless attractions, but it’s also surprisingly green, so drive to Hyde Park, Regent Park, St. James’s Park, or Hampstead Heath to get some fresh air, exercise, and hang out with the locals.

London’s a fun and culturally diverse city, so there’s a huge variety of events, festivals, street performances, plays, and concerts to enjoy. And don’t forget the food! Visit local British restaurants and pubs, but be sure you go to Brixton for African and Caribbean food, the East End for Bangladeshi cuisine, Golders Green for Jewish food, Finsbury Park for Greek and Turkish cuisine, and basically any London area for awesome Asian food!

London Gatwick Airport was the first airport in the world to receive a direct train link to it. London’s a great destination, but why not get a longer term car rental and explore even more? Many beautiful national parks like South Downs, Brecon Beacons, New Forest, and Dartmoor are easy to reach by car, and you can also head to northern England or even Normandy and Bretagne in nearby France. Start planning your vacation now!

FAQ

What are the charges for exceeding the mileage limit of a rental car at London Gatwick Airport?
Each car rental company has a different price for each extra kilometer. It could also vary depending on the class of car (extra kilometers are usually more expensive for luxury cars). Be sure to check the “mileage policy” section of the rental conditions of the car you are interested in renting to see the fee. If it is not listed, please contact our Customer Support team for assistance.
Is purchasing insurance necessary when renting a car at London Gatwick Airport?
Your rental will include basic coverage including a Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and third-party liability. This basic coverage will have a deductible (or excess) for which you will be liable in the event of theft or damage to the car. The basic coverage will also not cover certain things like tires or the windshield. Purchasing additional coverage is optional, but recommended. If you purchase our Full Coverage, it will reimburse you for any part of the deductible (or excess) that you pay to the rental company.
Is it possible to rent a car seat for a 15-month-old baby at London Gatwick Airport? What would it cost?
Yes, you can request a car seat during the booking process. The cost of it depends on the rental company, but in most cases, we show the price on the booking page.
Can I leave the rental car deposit using someone else's card at London Gatwick Airport?
No, it is not possible to leave the deposit with someone else’s credit card. Aside from possible fraud concerns, the credit card used must be issued in the name of the main driver on the contract. If you do not have a credit card but are traveling with someone that does and has a driver’s license, that person could rent the car and add you as an additional driver.

I don't see a need in driving a car in London. I spent my time in Sussex and was very happy to travel on my own.
