Top tips for renting a car at London Heathrow Airport

  • Even though traveling to a large city and airport such as London Heathrow (LHR) can seem overwhelming, travelers that want to obtain a car rental at London Heathrow Airport should know that every terminal building has a consolidated location where all the many rental car companies operate that is easy to find. It’s located in the arrivals area of each terminal near the baggage claim area. From there, there is ample shuttle service that is readily available to take travelers from each of the terminal buildings to the car rental companies that have a location offsite from the airport property.
  • Car rental at London Heathrow Airport can be more challenging during busy travel periods, such as during morning and evening rush-hour periods. You may also find that renting a car can be more difficult on weekends as well as during some holiday periods when there's quite a bit of travel through this international airport.
  • While there certainly are several transportation options to get you from the airport to the center of London, each can have its drawbacks compared to car rental at London Heathrow Airport. For example, there is a train service that can have you to the center of London in around 15min, but the problem with this mode of travel can be if you have a lot of luggage and deciding where you will store that luggage on your train ride. Oftentimes these trains can have limited space available for baggage, on top of which you will need to carry it all yourself with little or no help from the train staff. There is also a taxi service available, but the trip from the airport to London can cost up to £43 ($60). That is why renting a car is such a great option because it can get you where you're going quickly in a rather cost-effective fashion.
  • One of the great things about London Heathrow Airport car rental is that there are ample routes that can get you from the airport to the center of London easily. Once you hop in your rental car, you can easily take the M4 and A4 highways to get you to the center of London in about 30min.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars at London Heathrow Airport for C$ 59 or less
  • Book your rental car at London Heathrow Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

The new car didn't have ANY USB chargers... only USB-C. That was bloody annoying for a new rental car. That ridiculous system for checking how many points you have on your licence is also both unique and antiquated. I know it's not a Hertz specific problem... but FFS!!! The staff member did help in the end and offer an alternative. The car was great and at a good price.

New car. Lots of features.

Cons:

No one around to explain features of the car. Had to return the car two weeks early due to covid 19. Did not get a partial refund for those two weeks. Was contacted by P.R. person when I gave them a poor review who seemed like he might give me a partial refund but I believe they are now in bankruptcy proceedings so doubt I will see it.

Pros:

Nothing! Stay away and help put disreputable businesses out of business!

Cons:

Bait and switch. Got a price that looked great, but when I got there not only did they have an inferior car to the one I booked, that they tried to pass off, but the price they charged was over 40% higher than when I booked online. (Looking at the other reviews, I'm not the only one in this position) I walked out after confirming that they wouldn't charge me anything, and they charged me over 90 dollars (in dispute with credit card). I then went to a big name brand like I should have in the first place.

Pros:

The Pickup was the worst pickup scenario I've ever seen. There's a kiosk to 'skip the line' that you can use, but you need to get in the line after anyway. We had to deposit about $1200. The pickup process took about 2 hours. The car we received wasn't the class we requested, nor clean.

Cons:

Clearer indication of where to go when arriving. More staff. Working Kiosks. A real waiting area. Quicker service. Most importantly advance information on required deposits (I would never have rented from here had I known it was a $1200 USD deposit required).

Pros:

The young teenager working there was probably the only person that was courteous and understanding there.

Cons:

Booked car for 11am. Didn't get car until 1:45pm. Car was wall banged up and cut on tire. They said it's all good. Protested to get another car as I didn't feel safe. Returned car at 11:45amnext day to be scold by clerk who said needed to be returned by 11 and others waited for 3h for it. Scammers!

It's always a pleasure renting with Green Motion at Heathrow. While not directly at the airport, it's only 8-10 minutes away, and the rates are exceptional compared to the in-terminal options. Plus, the service is always fantastic (special shout out to Gill at drop off!!), as are the fleet of vehicles. Looking forward to renting with GM again next time I'm in the UK.

They didn’t have the car I had ordered and the ‘equivalents’ were not at the same level. They are all salespeople.

When you book you should included full insurance in the price its hard when you arrive at the car rental desk and you told your car agreement is with out full insurance

Cons:

I will never use Avis again - ever. In Jan 2019 I booked a car for pick up at LHR Dec 16, making the mistake that my flight out of SFO was actually getting into LHR Dec 17. Had I picked up the car Dec 16, I would have been paying $460 for my rental period. With zero flexibility they wanted me to now pay £2000 for the same rental package (1 day less in fact). After a long haul flight with 4 biggish bags - which the Avis shuttle driver gave no help with - I had to go back to T2 and get a car from National for £600. Same size as my original Avis booking, help with baggage into and off of bus and even into my car! Enterprise rocks. Avis sucks big time.

I made the mistake of not bringing my passport to the rental counter. Although not explicitly stated anywhere in the terms and conditions, a passport for foreign tourists is required to rent a car from Avis Heathrow. A driver's license is not sufficient documentation.

From start to finish zaine was Professional helpful and a great lad. I Wasn't expecting it to be as cheap as it was without hidden costs, but even the platinum insurance was resonable in comparrison to most Rental places I have visited (which is alot lately). 100% reccomend these guys!!

Staff is very rude and attempt to commit fraud. I bought the platinum protection package which protects you from liability in case of scratches or even totaling the car and they’re still try to withhold my deposit of $254. Worst people I’ve ever dealt with.

Negative: On arrival at Heathrow T4, despite what was on my booking from the broker (and what I have since confirmed is posted on the Surprice website), Surprice Heathrow pick-up only covered T2/T3/T5. This meant having to get a train with multiple bags which was very challenging for one person. My AMEX credit card was also not accepted (despite having already been used through the broker booking for part payment of the fee) Additionally, I was informed at the counter that I would need to pay extra to be dropped off at the airport on my departure Lastly, the car was dirty and had clearly not been cleaned. The agent offered to clean the car but I was now running late due to the unexpected trip from T4, etc so had to waive this offer Positive: On returning the car a few days later, I provided my poor experience to a gentleman called Sadan, who was handling the car check-in. He was very attentive and extremely customer focused. He apologised for the issues I had encountered and provided a complimentary drop off to the airport.

There was NOTHING that we liked about this experience. We will NEVER use them or recommend them again. Upon arrival, it took over an hour to find them for transportation to their facility. We had our booking at 9:00 am, at 11:00 am, we were still waiting for someone to talk to us. There were customers waiting who had their bookings at 7:30, and they hadn't been served yet. As we had time sensitive tickets for entry to Stonehenge, we ended up calling a taxi company to pick us up to drive us. The car rental company was supposed to reimburse us, they still have not credited us with our pre-paid rate. This was a HORRIBLE experience, we do NOT recommend them to anyone. For context, we have travelled extensively around the world and have rented cars everywhere we have travelled, this was by far the WORST EXPERIENCE we have ever encountered.

There were no instructions for pickup, just an address that goes to the wrong location. There should be shuttle pickup mentioned, because there was one, but we didn't know about it and ended up walking 3 miles with luggage to get to the correct location.

Take too long for serving customers at check in and check out. The airport pick up point information is not accurate. All customers were getting irritated with waiting time.

When I picked the car up I was told that no insurance was included, and that basic collision insurance with a GBP 800 excess would be more than 2x what I paid for the car. I have been renting cars for 40 years, and never before have I been sold a car without any insurance. In the past there has always been insurance with a modest excess (eg GBP 1,500) which the client is invited to reduce by making an additional payment. I will be careful never to book through you again.

My flight arrived at terminal 4, when I called the car rental team I was informed that they didn't pick up from terminal 4 and I would have to make my own way to terminal 2 or 3. Once at terminal 2 or 3 I would need to call them again. When I arrived at terminal 3 I called them and was told someone would pick me up in 10-15 minutes. After 30 minutes I called again and was told that someone would set off now to pick me up, so they hadn't even left their business to pick me up, if I hadn't called again how long would I have been waiting for? Upon arrival to the car rental place, I was informed that I had selected the cheapest option which didn't come with insurance which I needed. They gave me three price options, all which resulted in at least double the price of my original booking. At the time of booking I was not given the option of purchasing insurance, so a very deceitful way of hiding those additional fees making the renter think they have got a good deal. The fuel tank was only half full, resulting in me having to fill up before heading on my 5 1/2 hour drive, where the half tank wouldn't have gotten me to my destination. The gas station was only at the end of their road. Upon returning the car, I once again had to make my own way to the airport - terminal 4. They didn't even offer to take me to terminal 2 or 3. I will not use their service again, nor will I book a car through Kayak again.

I got dropped off at terminal on departure. DO NOT USE PAY EXTRA AND USE A MAINSTREAM RENTAL COMPANY. THE PRICE IS MISLEADING THEY CHARGE YOU FOR INSURANCE WHEB COLLECTING THE CAR RATHER THAN TELLING YOU ABOUT THIS BEFORE YOU MAKE THE BOOKING. RUDE AND UMPROFESSIONAL STAFF. CAR SMELT IF SMOKE, WAS UNLEAN AND WING MIRROR WAS TAPED ON DO NOT USE.

Terrible! Company phone line didn’t work so couldn’t get hold of the company to pick up vehicle! Had to rent a vehicle through another company at the airport after hours of trying to get in contact with Routes. Spoke to numerous car rental companies and they just laughed when we said we had booked Routes. They said we had no hope of getting a car from them and we had just been basically scammed. Drove past rental address when I had finally sorted a car out and there was just a random portacabin along with NO VEHICLES!!!!! Also the insurance we purchased through Kayak was not accepted by car rental company so now we are down that money too. Total waste of time. Will not be using Kayak, QEEQ or Routes EVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!

Jul. 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

A totally awful experience. I arrived promptly at the arranged pick-up time. In the reception there were three positions at the reception desk, all manned with staff. I was the only person in line to be seen behind a couple who were already being dealt with - leaving two available desks/ staff. The two available staff members were eagerly attempting to look busy in an almost empty office, sitting a mere two meters away from me. They didn’t have the courtesy to look up or acknowledge that I was quite clearly waiting to be seen. I took my place in the “queue” and waited. I eventually waited 20 minutes before being acknowledged; “you’ll be seen soon”, no apology or reassurance. During my lengthy wait I overheard the way in which the staff member was talking to the couple who were collecting a vehicle. Extremely rude, very blunt with an attitude suggesting that the they really didn’t care for their custom. There was absolutely no care, just rudeness. In this time someone had walked in to drop back a car. I then overhead that conversation. The customer took the car some days before and had queried some existing damage, not detailed on report. He reported it before taking the car and was told by the staff that it was fine and no one needed to sign or add it to his document (I later had the same conversation). Now when he’s returned the car they were denying all record of the conversation, saying it’s new damage. When he asked about getting the deposit back the staff member said something like “you have no proof, it’s our word against yours so I will decide on if you get your deposit back”. I was in complete shock at how two different members of staff had dealt with two different customers. That’s just not how you speak to people here in 2018. Before even dealing with someone I had already had a very uncomfortable experience, genuinely feeling bad for the customers. At this stage I felt regret and I was seriously considering walking out, losing my money and finding another company who I trusted. I just had an awful feeling about the business. Now almost half an hour after walking in to this environment I was prompted forward by an uninviting “yes?” by an employee who claimed to be named “B”. This was the same staff member who had just been rude to the customer returning their car. (I still find it difficult to believe that this is her real name, but she insisted it was). She looked at my documents before telling me I had to get back in the line and wait for her colleague as he is using the system that is needed for my rental. So I waited another 10/15 minutes before the male staff member was available. As it was now 45 minutes since walking in i was running late for my plans. Conscious of this I had everything in my hand ready to go; booking voucher, passport, driving licence, DVLA check code, card I booked with, credit card for the deposit. ... [continues below]

Cons:

[continued]... The man called me forward and took my documents. There was some faffing around; he asked me for documents he was already holding and generally not looking like he knew what he was doing. After a couple of minutes I was then passed back to “B” who strangely was now able to help me from her same computer that she’s couldn’t help me from 15 minutes ago. I could see through into the room with “manager” written on the door. I could clearly read a targets board on the wall measuring the staff’s targets and numbers. These targets included extra insurance and to my horror “damage”. These people appear to be targeted on finding damage. This further fuelled my negitive opinion of this company. We completed the paperwork and was handed some keys and pointed towards the door. No direction of where to find the car. Thankfully I quickly located the dirty vehicle. Following what I had just experienced and having absolutely no trust in the staff or company, I thoroughly inspected the vehicle. I identified some new damage on the car and went back to speak to “B”. Just as the previous customer had claimed, she told me to that they don’t need to sign anything or make any notes on documents or systems. This still makes no sense at all. This is when I decided to I take her name as reference of our conversation: “B”. Not knowing what else I could do I took over 30 pictures of the vehicle, ensuring that my phone made note of the date, time and location of the images. I fully expected to be needing them upon my return. I had a horrible feeling for the duration of my rental, worrying about having to prove existing damage and if I they would return my deposit. In summary I had an extremely concerning and frustrating experience, which took too long and lacked any organisation. I would absolutely never use them again and would encourage others to not waste their time or emotions. Absolutely awful.
