We’ve written before about how you can use Zipcar Flex to rent a car and drop off a car directly at Heathrow Terminal 5. It’s actually my preferred (and fastest) way of getting to the airport, and last year I reviewed the Zipcar Flex experience from start to finish.
You can do the same in reverse, picking up a car from Heathrow T5 and driving home or wherever you need to go.
Unfortunately, whilst Zipcar does offer its Flex (one-way rental) services in many parts of London, vast swathes are still excluded.
This is slowly changing. Zipcar has announced it is expanding Zipcar Flex into the boroughs of Ealing and Richmond.
If you want to try Zipcar out use our link to receive £15 free driving credit you can get when signing up. Membership is free and £15 will get you just over an hour of drive time. Note that if you drop off or pick up at Heathrow you have to pay an additional £7.50 fee.
