Our main Heathrow car rental station is located within the airport perimeter and is open 24/7, so you can collect and drop-off your hire car at any time. To make your journey as easy as possible, we also have a fleet of dedicated Avis Budget shuttle buses which will whisk you to and from Terminals 2, 3 and 4.
From Terminal 3 you can get the shuttle from bus stop 17 and from Terminal 4 it's bus stop 2. If you are landing at Terminal 2 you can either take the shuttle from bus stops 7/8 or pick up directly from the terminal with our exclusive Fast Track pick-up service.
All cars, regardless of which terminal you picked up from, should be returned to our main base at Northrop Road, TW6 2QA (for your GPS) just off the airport's North Perimeter Road.
Exit the M4 at Junction 4, follow the signs to Heathrow and head towards Terminal 4. You'll soon see signs for Avis Car Rental return.
If you are landing at Terminal 2 and time is of the essence, consider our exclusive Fast Track pick-up service.
With Fast Track, passengers can step off their flight and head straight to our in-terminal desk at the end of the Arrivals hall to pick up their keys. Your gleaming new hire car will be waiting for you just outside, in our dedicated parking bays, near bus stop 19. We charge GBP 19.99 for this service.
