    Prior to Xmas, I was looking to rent a Landrover Discovery out of Heathrow and was quoted GBP 2100 for 10 days by Thrifty. Was pleasantly surprised that I could find the same vehicle for the same period out of Thrifty Luton for just over GBP 700. As I was travelling north, it was a no brainer. We picked up a Mini Van from Heathrow to Luton at a cost of GBP 100 (which meant no wait for a rental courtesy bus) and within an hour we were at Thrifty Luton. Better still, Thrifty allowed us to return the car to Heathrow at no additional charge. A further check revealed that other car hire companies too are much cheaper out of Heathrow. Hopefully this will be of help to some of you.


    Useful tip, thanks RJ. You can also google cheap car rental at x airport and there are quite a few sites that offer substantial discounts with cars provided by the majors such as a Avis.
