KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in West Drayton

  • West Drayton Car hire provides one of the best opportunities to take control of your vacation and explore the Hillingdon town, surrounding landscapes and nearby cities without paying local taxis or trying to figure out the public transport system. Take time to visit Farlows Lake before driving a little further to visit Windsor Castle. One of the most popular trips from West Drayton is a short drive to London, which takes around 40 minutes.
  • Many companies offering car hire in West Drayton also offer services from London Heathrow International Airport, which is less than 10 minutes away from the town and most likely to be your arrival and departure point when visiting West Drayton. Companies like Budget and Europcar operate out of the Arrivals Hall in Terminal 2 and 3, as well as the main hall in Terminal 1. These vehicles are usually kept in the car park between terminals 2 and 3 on the Ground Level. It's best to book online through KAYAK to save time and money when you get to the airport as in-person hiring can be more costly.
  • Car hire in West Drayton is a simple process, from hiring the car to driving along the streets. You'll need to navigate some heavy traffic from London Heathrow to West Drayton, but outside of that, it should be smooth sailing. The flow of traffic in the city is controlled by traffic lights and roundabouts and is usually easily navigated. Streets in the centre of the town can be narrow and you'll need to look out for the odd bicycle and pedestrian on the road.
  • The most difficult thing about driving in West Drayton is usually the narrow roads and the pedestrians in the town centre. There are often cars parked along the side of the road which slows the movement of traffic in the centre of West Drayton. Be aware of motorcycles and mopeds and stick to driving on the left-hand side of the road. Aside from these, driving in the town is relatively easy. The morning and evening commutes between 6:30am and 9:30am and between 5pm and 6:30pm are often the worst traffic times.
  • Book your car hire in West Drayton at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

The streets in the town can be narrow and busy in the centre, so a smaller and more compact model is usually easier to navigate.

Those travelling with large groups are encouraged to hire more than one car instead of a large model.

Main dual-carriageways and major highways generally have a limit of 70 mph (112 km/h). These limits tend to change quickly when heading into the city so keep a lookout for the road signs.

  • Where are the best places to park in West Drayton?

    There is plenty of on-street parking available in and around the town centre, especially close to the shopping areas. It isn't always easy to find available spaces but if you get there early enough, you should be able to without any problems. Outside of these parking spots, there are car parks available where you'll be issued a ticket when you enter and be charged for the time spent there.

It's always a pleasure renting with Green Motion at Heathrow. While not directly at the airport, it's only 8-10 minutes away, and the rates are exceptional compared to the in-terminal options. Plus, the service is always fantastic (special shout out to Gill at drop off!!), as are the fleet of vehicles. Looking forward to renting with GM again next time I'm in the UK.

Hotel Hoppa shuttle schedule is confusing. Bus Driver didn't stop to pick us up at Heathrow. Waited extra 30 minutes in cold for him to come back again the next time. Not Green Motion's fault, but I might look for car rental with better shuttle. Also, waiting at Green Motion for the shuttle to Heathrow, is outside and cold.

The rental counter experience was fine. The Citroen C3 will go on my list (with the Renault Clio) of cars to avoid. The rubbery, notchy transmission took all the fun out of driving.

Pros:

Very confusing process. Ended up paying triple of what I thought I was going to. I would suggest a more reputable brand. Might cost more on paper but not worth the headache of this rental experience.

Cons:

Shuttle to the car park. Clear terms and conditions.

Pros:

The drop off was fast.

Cons:

I had a reservation for a car which the sales staff completely ignored to start a new transaction. They proceeded to ignore pricing to push their insurance plan, and basically wouldn't let you leave until you had purchased it. I literally told them what I thought they were doing was a scam.
