Car Hire Heathrow Airport

Car Hire Heathrow Airport

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 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.

Indigo Car Hire

Great service. Lady at Heathrow was fantastic.

 by Jules Richards

I have been using Cherie and her fantastic team at Indigo since they first started. I rent cars on a regular basis both for business and leisure and Indigo has always come up with the goods - in the UK, France, Germany, Australia. I live in the south of France and I even use Indigo to get cars here. On several occasions staff in the pick-up agencies have asked how I had got such a good deal as they couldn't have offered me the same. On the very odd occasion (only two) over the years when there has been a glitch - never Indigo's fault, I hasten to add - one call to them and immediately problem solved. Exceptional customer service is their mantra and they actually live up to it. Indigo is my one-stop shop whenever I need a car.
