Tips for renting a car in London Gatwick Airport

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in London Gatwick Airport including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on 15 July 2024.
  • Gatwick, located in Southeast England, experiences a temperate climate with the possibility of rain throughout the year. Always be prepared for wet road conditions and reduced visibility, especially on the M23 and other major routes leading to Gatwick Airport. During winter, although heavy snowfall is rare, be cautious of frost and icy patches on the roads in the early morning or at night. Use your headlights and windshield wipers as necessary to maintain visibility.
  • The area around Gatwick Airport, including the nearby towns like Crawley, can experience heavy traffic, particularly during peak travel times at the airport. Be prepared for congestion on the M23 motorway and A23 road, which are the main routes to the airport. The roads inside the airport, including access to terminals and parking areas, are well-signposted, but they can be complex for first-time visitors. Plan your route in advance and consider using a GPS navigation system to assist with directions, particularly if you're heading to less familiar parts of the region.
  • Familiarize yourself with the UK's driving laws and local practices. Remember to drive on the left-hand side of the road and be mindful of speed limits, which are strictly enforced in the UK. At roundabouts, common in this area, give way to traffic from the right and follow the signs for your exit. In and around the airport, watch for specific signage related to drop-offs, pick-ups, and parking. Short-stay and long-stay parking facilities are available, but be sure to follow airport parking regulations to avoid fines or towing. Additionally, be aware of pedestrian crossings and be prepared to stop for passengers walking to and from terminals.

  • What should I be aware of regarding traffic conditions when driving near Gatwick?

    Driving near Gatwick, particularly towards Central London, requires awareness of several factors. Traffic can be heavy, and there are congestion charges and high parking fees in the city center, making public transport a more viable option there. Most vehicles in the UK are manual, so it's important for those accustomed to automatic cars to specify their preference when renting a car. The UK's driving orientation is on the left, with the steering wheel on the right, which may require some adjustment for drivers from other countries. Speed limits vary depending on the area, with strict enforcement in many places. Roundabouts are common and have specific rules that should be understood for safe navigation. Also, be mindful of speed cameras, particularly in urban areas, as they are widely used to enforce speed limits.

This coverage, costing around £300.00 per rental, includes international breakdown cover and the necessary authorization for cross-border travel.
