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

The best car to hire 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, requires a bit more comfort and more engine power then an SUV, MPV or people carrier would be your best choice.
