Car Hire England/Heathrow

Jump to last reply

Usually I just take public transport from LHR to Brentwood (Essex) or have my friend pick us up and take us back to his place.

This time, however, since we're coming in on a Saturday in August, and planning to start a road trip 2 days later (hello Liverpool!), I think it's better just to pick up the car at Heathrow where I'll have a better shot at getting an estate car than I would in Essex.

Feel free to tell me if I'm wrong, but last time I did a car hire in Brentwood, they had maybe 2 cars, not terribly new, and ours had wonky (intermittent) A/C.

So question is: Just use AutoEurope, where it looks like Europecar gives the best quote for a Vauxhall Estate car and Budget for a Kia Estate car? Or go directly to those company's websites?

Thanks for all the help.
