Arriving off a long haul flight at the world's busiest international airport can be stressful at the best of times, having to worry about car rental availability is one thing most of us can do without. By pre-booking you get better rental prices, a wider choice of vehicles and a confirmed booking all without paying a deposit, fee or supplying your credit card details. If you are travelling with little ones remember to include booster seats with your booking as there are limited numbers held at rental branches.

Once you have collected your rental car at Heathrow Airport you'll find you are in easy reach of the M4 for London or conversely to head West and Wales, M3 for Southampton & the South West and the M25 to circumnavigate London for Kent or heading north up the M1. One thing to note is that some rental suppliers maintain their branches outside the airport's boundaries and operate a regular shuttle bus between all terminals. Staff at the terminal rental desks will guide you on where to go for these transfer services.


Which car rental companies are on offer at Heathrow Airport?

How old do I have to be to rent a car in the UK?

You must be at least 21 years of age to rent a car in the UK. However, surcharges will apply if you are under 25 and you will be restricted in your choice of cars if you are below this age.

What driving licence do I require?

You can use your normal licence from your home country, as long as it is in English. If it is in another language, you must also carry an International Driving Permit with you.

Does the congestion charge apply to me?

A charge applies to all drivers who enter the congestion zone (which practically covers most of central London) between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday to Friday. The charge is payable for each separate day you enter the zone and it is up to you to make sure it is paid by midnight on the day. When renting a car from Heathrow Airport you are responsible for payment of any Congestion charges should you drive into central London - more information is available here - http://www.tfl.gov.uk/roadusers/congestioncharging.

Do I have to wear a seatbelt?

The UK Department of Transport requires all car passengers to wear seatbelts if they are fitted in the vehicle. Each passenger must use the belt fitted for their seat and only one person is to use each belt. A fine of up to 500 pounds can be charged to anyone who doesn't wear a fitted seatbelt.
