FAQs: Drivalia at Heathrow Airport

Question: How do I get from Heathrow Airport to your local branch?
We offer a free complimentary shuttle bus service for our customers. This includes taking you back to the airport after your car rental has finished. Please call the branch when you arrive to arrange pick-up.

Question: Is your branch close to Heathrow Airport?
Yes – We are less than 2 miles away from LHR making us one of the closest off-site car rental branches serving Terminals 2, 3, 4, and 5. We are able to offer cheap rates for customers without compromising on the quality of service.

Question: Do you have a fast check-in system at this branch?
The summer months can be busy that’s why we have recently installed a self-service kiosk. You can beat the ques with our automated check-in service where you simply enter your details, scan your docs, and finally, select a suitable insurance package.

Question: Can I pick up at Heathrow and drop off at your Gatwick branch?
Yes, proving more popular is our one-way car hire service which is available at most of our car hire locations. With this, you could hire a car from Heathrow and drop off at one of our other existing United Kingdom branches such as Gatwick.

With high local taxi prices for airport transfers, one-way car hire often works out cheaper – there is a small charge for this service which is reflected on your quote searches and clearly indicated on the screen.

Question: I might need to drop of my rental car at a time that is out of your branch office hours, is this possible?
If your flight departure times do not match up with our office opening hours (we are not open 24 hours) then please call Freephone 08000 75 80 75 for further information.

Question: How do I get to Heathrow Airport by car?
Driving to and around Heathrow Airport by car is a relatively straightforward process. The airport is well-signposted from all routes, making it easy to find.

Local traffic may access Heathrow from two main roads, the A30 or A3113, but during peak traffic times, it is advisable to allow extra time for travel.

The most effective and efficient way to get to Heathrow is through the M4 motorway, which provides the most direct route to the airport.

Terminals 1 and 3 are easily reached from junction 4 of the M4 or via the A4, while Terminal 4 can be accessed from either junction 3 of the M4 or junction 14 of the M25. From the North, drivers should join the M25 and head westbound until junction 15.

Those coming from the West can join either the M4 or M3 heading towards London and Heathrow, and then join the M25. Meanwhile, drivers coming from the South can take either the M23 or M20 heading for London and Heathrow, and then join the M25. Finally, those coming from the East can join the M25 from either the A13 or M11 heading southbound towards Dartford.

Visitors are advised to check travel updates before setting off, as roadworks and closures may cause delays. Excellent park and ride facilities are available, and cheaper parking options are available outside the airport.
