So What is the Best Car to Hire at Gatwick Airport?

The best car to hire at Gatwick Airport depends on why you want the car in the first place.

If you’re going on a summer holiday, on your own or with your best friend, or you are just looking for a short-term rental car to stay local then a small car like a Mini would be ideal - easy to park and cheap to run.

If you have a small family then a saloon car, a hatchback or an estate would work – plenty of space in the back to store all the luggage and enough power to plan a longer journey.

If your journey involves more passengers, and requires a bit more comfort and more engine power then an SUV, MPV or people carrier would be your best choice.

If you are looking to create a good impression, at a job interview or a special occasion like a wedding, then a luxury car may be the vehicle of choice for you.
