The biggest and busiest airport in the UK and the third busiest in terms of passenger traffic, Heathrow. Due to the enormity of the airport it unsurprisingly attracts several car hire companies which are all competing to supply the best rates and ultimate get the most business, but this doesn’t help you as a customer, Indigo Car Hire does. We compare the prices of all these suppliers in order to find you the best deal appropriate to your given circumstances.
We work with every major supplier at Heathrow and we know all the terms and conditions and various positive and negative aspects of certain companies and we are ready to share this knowledge with you. We can also happily announce that we can now offer car hire at Heathrow 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
There are 5 terminals at Heathrow with different companies located in different sections of each terminal which can all get a bit confusing, the main companies such as Sixt, Dollar, Avis and Thrifty all have in airport desks but use a shuttle bus to take you to the rental depot. Despite this, getting a car from an in terminal desk may not be the best option as we also have many off airport suppliers who offer meet & greet services often at lower prices.

At Heathrow unlike most other airports, we have a supplier that has been able to make their vehicles available to a wider audience. Providing the hirer has a valid driving licence and proof of identity. The biggest difference is the types of payment cards that they can accept. Electron cards, Switch, Solo and Cirrus are all acceptable as are postpay visa cards, pre-paid credit cards and cash cards. This is very rare when hiring a car.
If you dont hold a credit or debit card at all, you have 2 further options with this particular supplier. You are able to use someone elses card and perform what we call a Third Party Payment, please be aware that there are restrictions in place for this type of payment.

I cannot recommend Indigo high enough, I have used them for more years then I can remember. To start with their Customer Service is second to none in any type of industry. It starts at the very top with Cherie, whose personal service is a hard act to follow. Then the hire itself, their variety of options and rates are unbeatable. Their web site is very easy to follow and booking couldn't be easier. Highly recommended whether for a business trip or pure leisure, to anyone who wants top service, top vehicle at a top price.
I booked a car today and the service was exceptional. It was all done on chat (with Ann-Marie) and she was able to answer every question without hesitation.
I am very satisfied with Indigo - they always give helpful and attentive service and try their best to give a good deal. Excellent if you don't have a credit card.
Response: Many thanks for taking the time to leave comments - we aim to help in every situation as much as possible. No credit card / low deposit / young driver / old driver etc etc :-)
I have used Indigo on many occasions and have had excellent service in different locations. I will continue to use them whenever possible and their prices are always competative.
I would certainly recommend Indigo - better price than others and we could book a car the night before we needed it without any hassles. The only downside was having to trek across to Terminal 5, and there was a hold-up at the Avis desk because of flight delays. Return was quick.
