FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

London Gatwick Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental London Gatwick

London Gatwick is the second largest airport in the UK and regarded by many as the most efficient single-runway airport in the world, serving 34 million passengers a year to 200 destinations across 90 countries. Just 28 miles south of London, Gatwick is perfectly positioned to access central London, taking a shorter time to get into the capital than any other airport, and also has excellent connections to the south of England. Gatwick also acts as a major economic driver for the southeast, and, offering many similar flights as Heathrow, is sometimes seen as a more efficient alternative to its larger counterpart. HAPPYCAR offers various attractive options for a Gatwick car hire so that wherever you decide to go, your stay in the UK is stress-free from day one. We check the prices of international and local providers so that you don’t have to check each website to provide you with the best deals on a car hire to make your money go further on a rental car that fits your specific needs. You have the options of choosing car size, pick up location and type of insurance to ensure you get the best deal on a great car hire!

Background information

Beginning life as a small enthusiast flying club in 1930, the airport was able to fly commercial aircraft just four years later, and the rest is history. Gatwick is being increasingly relied on as a prime destination for travelers arriving and departing to places all over the world, particularly into Europe, and have submitted a proposal to build a second runway by 2025. The airport is also in a unique position to be able to provide point-to-point services much different from Heathrow, and has consistently won various industry awards for best airport in the UK.

Gatwick operates from two terminals, North and South, and both are replete with amenities, shops and restaurants, and a wide choice of lounges for business travelers, along with conference rooms. If you end up shopping too much and are returning with a car hire Gatwick later on, you can leave all your purchases safely at Gatwick and pick them up later on. For children, there is also the option of play areas and even video games to pass the time.

Excursions

Thanks to the excellent road access in the area, a Gatwick car rental enables you to efficiently head out into the country or get into the city, or to further-flung areas like Brighton in the south, Oxford in the east, Reading in the west and much of the rest of the UK. A car rental Gatwick enables visitors to plan their own trip on their own terms and Gatwick is an excellent transport hub from which to strike out.
