Hertz in London City Airport (LCY)

City Airport, 11km to the east of the City and close to Canary Wharf, is used extensively by London’s business community. Over 4.5 million passengers passed through its single terminal in 2016, making it an important hub for this thriving commercial district. With excellent road connections to the heart of the capital and the rest of the southeast region, this makes a good place to pick up your vehicle from Hertz Car Rental for business or pleasure.

Hertz Car Rental has supplied commercial and private customers with a huge selection of quality vehicles for nearly a century, and continues to lead the field in international car rental. Thousands of drivers from around the globe have taken advantage of the convenience and comfort that self-drive offers when compared to slower public transport options. The fast and efficient service offered by Hertz means that customers arriving at our London City Airport branch of Hertz Car Rental can pick up a vehicle of choice quickly and easily, whether you’re here for business or pleasure.

About the airport

The airport was opened in 1986 and has a single runway and terminal building. Smaller than other airports in the region such as Heathrow and Stansted, it is used mostly by London’s business community. In 2005 it was connected directly with the Docklands Light Railway, providing a fast link to the City and Canary Wharf, London’s newest business quarter. In 2012 the terminal was greatly expanded for the Olympics, especially in the Central Search zone.

London City Airport has a two-storey terminal and a single runway, and has no freight services. The London City Airport branch of Hertz Car Rental can be found on the ground floor of the terminal building, close to Arrivals.

How to rent a car at London City Airport

The Hertz Car Rental branch is open Monday to Friday, 6.30am to 9.00pm; Saturday 7.00am to 4.00pm; Sunday 10.00am to 9.00pm. Hertz also offers customers an out-of-hours drop-off and pick-up service, arranged through the Reservation Centre.

Drivers must have a minimum age of 25 years to rent a car through Hertz at London City Airport. This can be lowered to 23 years on payment of an additional young driver surcharge, although for some vehicle models the age is set strictly at 25 years or 30 years for some luxury models. In addition, you will require a full driving licence and, if you’re coming from outside of the EU, an International Driving Permit (IDP). You will also need to have a valid passport and a valid ID if you’re not from an EU member country. Bring all relevant documentation if you booked your car in advance to avoid delays. You can make payments using a credit or debit card on arrival.

Additional information:

• Vehicles can be optionally fitted with the Hertz NeverLost navigation system, which is invaluable for getting around roads in the congested Docklands and central London area.

• Take note of the congestion charges on all vehicles travelling through central London during weekdays.

Driving in the UK

Visitors to the UK must have a full driving licence as well as the proper insurance cover to drive a hire vehicle. More information concerning driving in the UK can be found here.

Nearby attractions

Although there is as you’d expect some congestion in the London area, both the roads and their signage are exemplary, and with NeverLost in-car navigation you’ll have no trouble getting to where you want to be. Greater London is packed with interest and you’ll have quick and easy road access to attractions such as Hampton Court Palace, as well as nearby historic cities such as Rochester and the Roman capital of Colchester.
