Top tips for hiring a car at London Southend airport

  • Car hire at London Southend Airport (SEN) is an ideal option for connecting with London city. London Southend Airport is situated beside the A127, which connects drivers with major routes into London, such as the A13 and the London Orbital Motorway. As public transport heading into London city is often extremely crowded, hiring a car at the airport can help you get started on your journey straightaway and help you avoid long waits for buses or trains.
  • SEN is located near to a number of rural and seaside spots on the Thames Estuary. Although these destinations are popular with tourists, their rural location means that public transport travelling to these areas may not operate as frequently as transit options to London city. Passengers, therefore, may face long waits for public transport when travelling to these areas. London Southend Airport car hire gives you a convenient way to explore nearby scenic spots, such as Westcliff-on-Sea or Thorpe Bay, without relying on local public transit.
  • Passengers who want to hire a car at London Southend Airport should be aware that different rental agencies at this location may have varying returns policies. For example, when you use Hertz at London Southend Airport it is recommended that you arrange a return time while making your online booking. Meanwhile, some companies, such as Europcar, offer customers the option of returning your vehicle to a different location, rather than returning it at the airport. Perfect if you plan to explore the wider Southend area with your rental car.
  • Some car hire companies at London Southend Airport close or operate a reduced service at weekends or in the evenings. Therefore, you may find that you have more choice when it comes to selecting your car hire if you arrange to travel during the week. Some rental agencies at London Southend Airport, such as Keddy, do offer 24-hour service for passengers looking to hire a car.
