Travel From Heathrow Airport By Car

Once you have collected your hire car, you will need to plan your travel from Heathrow airport to your chosen destination. If you are not used to driving on the ‘left’ as is required in the UK, it may be a good idea to take a moment at the airport before you leave to get used to sitting in the right hand side of the car and having the gearstick on the left side on you.  Driving around the airport car park can be a good exercise to make yourself familiar with the controls before you actually venture on to the main roads. It is also a good way to check the car has no faults before you set off on your journey.
