    London Heathrow Airport Car Rental

    Airport Car Rental

    Get your rental at London Heathrow Airport! One of London’s best features is its neighborhoods—they’re many and diverse, and each is unique. But the city’s large, and some neighborhoods are quite far apart, so having a rental car to get from one to another is a good idea. Make sure you visit the City of London, the city’s original settlement, Notting Hill with its market and carnival, the East End and its bars, galleries, and parks, Hampstead for some old-time bohemian chic, and Brixton to experience the Caribbean vibe.

    Make time for the city’s iconic attractions, too—Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Piccadilly Circus, and Marble Arch are just a few. And if museums aren’t your thing, London might change your mind. Check out the British Museum, the National Gallery, the National History Museum, or the Tate Modern and see what you think.

    London’s a terrific place to visit, but the surrounding area has even more to offer, so why not get a longer-term car rental? You can head to nearby coastal towns for a day at the beach, or get a feel for Britain’s regional diversity in Cornwall, Wales, or Northern England. Go to mainland Europe and you’ll discover that Paris, Amsterdam, and Brussels are all surprisingly close. You can even pick up your rental car at London Heathrow Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure now!

    London Heathrow Airport is the busiest airport in Europe and the second-busiest in the world by international passenger traffic.

    Car rental desks

    Those rental companies with on-airport locations have rental desks in the terminals. You, however, must take a shuttle bus to pick up the car, though.

    Those rental companies not located at the airport provide a shuttle service from the terminals to their locations.

    Services and facilities

    London Heathrow Airport is huge and has plenty to offer. You’ll find many bars, cafeterias, and restaurants, shopping centers, and various lounges. There are ATMs in every terminal before and after security. There are also children’s play areas and other family facilities, a lost property office, pharmacies, medical help, showers, a fitness center, a prayer room, a free Power Pole for charging electronic devices, and countless other services and entertainment opportunities. There are left luggage services on the ground floor of each terminal, all open daily from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.

    Nearest gas station

    Which gas station is most convenient to fill up at prior to returning your rental car depends on which company you rent from. Most will find that a Texaco station located on Bath Rd. (the A4) is the most convenient. The station is near the M4 exit to the airport and requires only a slight detour if returning a car to Alamo, Europcar, Keddy, Enterprise, or Easirent.

    If returning a car to Green Motion (and Ace, whose rentals are serviced by Green Motion), then a Shell station located on Holloway Lane, one block west of the Holiday Inn where Green Motion is located is the best station to fill up at. It is less than a mile away from the Holiday Inn.

    If returning a car to Sixt’s location, you can conveniently fill up at the BP station that you must drive through anyway to reach the rental return gate.

    Make sure your credit card is valid and can guarantee the excess if high. perhaps phone bank beforehand. Remember, they do not accept debit cards. If your is not working, you may have to pay a hefty further sum at the desk to lower or cancel the excess.Leave enough time to get back to your terminal.
