Tips for renting a car in London Heathrow Airport

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in London Heathrow Airport including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on February 22, 2024.
  • London has been proactively expanding its electric vehicle charging infrastructure across the city. Various types of chargers, including rapid chargers, fast chargers, and standard chargers, are now accessible in public areas, residential neighborhoods, and commercial centers. In a bid to combat air pollution and promote low-emission vehicles, London has implemented Ultra Low Emission Zones (ULEZ) in the city center. Opting to rent an electric vehicle in this area becomes an attractive choice as it allows you to actively contribute to environmental preservation without sacrificing convenience during your visit to London.
  • There are quite a few great spots where you can rent a car in the London area beside the airport. Europcar has a location at 12 Semley Place Victoria, which is on the west side of London, which can be a great place to get a car on a trip from the airport to the center of London. You can also rent from Budget at their location at 145 Battersea Park Road.
  • Use navigation apps or GPS devices to plan your route in advance. London's roads can be complex, and traffic can be heavy, so having a planned route will help you avoid getting lost and minimize delays. In the UK, vehicles drive on the left side of the road. Pay close attention to roundabouts, as traffic flows clockwise. If you're not used to left-hand driving, take your time and stay cautious. London is a pedestrian-friendly city, so always be mindful of pedestrians, especially in busy areas and near pedestrian crossings. Familiarize yourself with UK speed limits. In built-up areas, the speed limit is usually 50 km/h (31 mph), and on highways, it's 110 km/h (68 mph) unless otherwise signposted.

Car rental FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car rentals in London Heathrow Airport, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on February 22, 2024.

Can I drive a London rental car to other countries in the United Kingdom?

You can generally drive a rental car from London to other countries within the United Kingdom. The United Kingdom is made up of England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. When you rent a car in London, you are allowed to drive it across these different countries within the UK without any additional restrictions or fees. However, it's essential to confirm with the specific rental car company you choose about their policies regarding driving their rental cars between different countries within the UK. Additionally, if you plan to travel to the Republic of Ireland, which is a separate country from the UK, you should consult with the rental car company about their policies regarding taking their rental cars to the Republic of Ireland.

On weekdays from approximately 7:00 am to 10:00 am and 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm, when people are making their way to and from work, you will find traffic congestion can be particularly heavy during these times. This will be especially true on major roads like A1 (Great North Road), A2 (New Kent Road), A3 (Portsmouth Road), A4 (Great West Road), and A10 (Kingsland Road). London is a popular tourist destination, and during peak tourist seasons, which are typically in the summer months and around major holidays, there can be increased traffic in popular tourist areas and around attractions. Heavy rain, snow, or other adverse weather conditions can lead to slower traffic flow and potential hazards on the road.
