Heathrow/Gatwick Airport Car Rental

Our airport arrival procedures are fast, 24hr, reliable and definitely the best way to start your stay in the UK. Though not situated at Heathrow or Gatwick airport, a Kendall Cars representative will be waiting to meet you and your party directly as you exit the customs hall in either terminals 1-5 or North/South Terminal. No need to stand in a queue waiting to be served as we provide a one-to-one service that treats every customer as a VIP.

With our ‘Standard service’ we will transport you and your party to our nearby branch (Chertsey, Woking, Leatherhead or Guildford) to complete the necessary paperwork and conduct a thorough inspection of the vehicle so you can be 100% satisfied with the vehicle you are taking.

The ‘Premium service’ allows you to complete the pre-arranged paperwork and inspect the vehicle at Heathrow/Gatwick meaning you can begin your holiday or business trip straightaway. Details about where to return the vehicle to one of our pre-designated car parks and all contact information will be provided on collection.

 Airport Services

We offer two different services for airport hires* – our Standard Meet and Greet service OR our Premium Direct Collection option. Please read the details below and select the service you prefer. Note – both services incur a surcharge compared to hiring directly from a local branch.

*You may also mix and match the services to suite your needs i.e. Arrive with the Premium service and take the vehicle direct from the airport and then select the Standard return to enjoy the transfer from our branch direct to the airport terminal – without the hassle of the shuttle bus and the higher cost.

Standard (Meet & Greet)

Meet and Greet Service:.
Airports can be very confusing and difficult places to navigate around.

We can make your arrival much easier by meeting you at the arrivals gate, helping you with your luggage and then chauffeuring you and your party to our closest branch where our friendly staff can familiarise you with the vehicle and help you on your way.

When departing, simply return the vehicle to our branch and we will then chauffeur you and your party directly back to the airport terminal avoiding the shuttle bus. (£)


Premium (Direct Collection)

Pickup/Return Directly at Airport:.
If you are already familiar with London airports or time is a restriction then you can organise to have us meet you at the arrival gate, complete the final paperwork and take you to the vehicle parked directly at the airport short stay car park. Our staff will familiarise you with the vehicle and provide any further instructions for returning the vehicle. The vehicle can then be driven away directly from the airport.

When departing, the vehicle will need to be parked in a pre-arranged parking area away from the terminal (full instructions given upon arrival), then take a shuttle bus to the terminal to catch your flight. (When flying from LHR T4 or T5 there is a £5 charge for the shuttle bus). (££)
