London Airports Car Rental

Enterprise Car Rental Locations in London Airports

There are four main airports that serve London: Heathrow Airport, Gatwick Airport, Luton Airport and London Stansted.

Heathrow: northwest of London, the largest and busiest of them all, with four terminals (2-5) connecting to destinations around the world.

Gatwick: south of London, a busy international airport, with two terminals, North and South, serving both low-cost airlines and national carriers.

Luton: north of London and known as a base for the low-cost airline EasyJet

Stansted: northeast of London and the UK hub for low-cost carrier, Ryanair.

All of the airports have a good-sized duty free area for some pre-flight shopping, left luggage facilities, a range of nearby hotels if you have an early flight, as well as both long and short-term parking facilities.

We have branches at all the airports so you can pick up a car on arrival and be on your way within an hour of landing.

London Airports Car Rental FAQs

For additional questions, please visit our main car rental FAQs page.

None of our airport branches are open 24 hours for pick ups, however many have a dropbox for keys if you need to return your hire car after hours.

If you have pre-paid online, you just need to bring a driving licence to the rental counter. If you are paying in branch, you'll also need a credit card. 

If you are on a late flight and need to drop your car off outside of branch hours, let them know at the branch and they will tell you where the dropbox is to return the keys.

On arrival at the airport, follow the directions to the car hire returns area where you will be greeted by one of our employees. Make sure you are clear about the fuel policy you have opted for, so you are not charged extra.

Yes this is possible within the same country so, if you are flying out from a different UK airport, you can drop your hire car off at the Enterprise branch at your departure airport.

The more details you give in advance, the quicker the transaction time at the counter. If you have already pre-paid online you won't need to pay at the branch, which should speed things up a bit, depending on how busy things are on the day.

Parking Information In London Airports

All five of the London airports have excellent parking facilities available. Heathrow in particular has a wide selection of parking options to suit all budgets - a short-stay car park is located near to each of the five of the terminals, while longer stay car parks are situated further away and linked to the airport by frequent shuttle buses. The other airports also all have short and long-stay carparks. However, be aware if you are just stopping to drop off or pick up passengers, there is now a charge to enter the drop-off and pick-up point at all the London airports. The price varies by airport and can be paid online.
