Top tips for renting a car at London Southend Airport

  • A trip to Southend-on-Sea brings some excitement as soon as the flight takes off, but the real fun begins when you set foot in London Southend Airport. While staying around the resort town, you will need a vehicle to visit places on your to-do list. There’s no better way to commence a vacation than getting behind the wheel immediately. A car rental at London Southend Airport makes your itinerary as worry-free as can be.
  • Before you even get on a plane, first decide what type of car you need to rent at London Southend Airport. You can count on a full-size SUV if you need comfy seats in 3 rows and ample space for luggage. When taking your family to national parks or friends to a camping site, an elite SUV should give you ample room for travel gear. Sometimes, you need to showcase your style to enjoy upscale conveniences. Try a luxury sports car during your next business trip to Essex.
  • When the time comes to drop off the vehicle, look for return signs behind the Holiday Inn. They should lead you to the parking lot designated as Long Stay 3. If you were given a parking ticket, you have to drop it off at the rental desk, a 3min walking distance from the lot. For an after-hours return, find a drop box in front of the rental counter. Put the keys inside together with the paperwork.
  • Car rental suppliers use different ways to calculate daily rates. Some give you a grace period for late drop-offs while others will charge a fixed fee per hour for late returns. You might even pay a full-day rental rate if you miss the return deadline by a few hours. You can always avoid surprise charges by planning your trips well to stay on time. Also confirm the mileage and damage notations to avoid surprise charges. When using an off-site rental office, verify the exact location before getting to London Southend Airport and find out if there are shuttle services to the pick-up point.

FAQs about renting a car at London Southend Airport

  • Unlike public means of transport (bus and train services), which require you to navigate Rochford Road outside the airport building, car rental desks are inside terminal. When you arrive at SEN’s terminal, look for the rental counters next to Costa Coffee. Other rental car offices are directly opposite the information desk.

  • For a successful process, make sure all the necessary documents are in your name as it appears on your ID. Bring with you a valid driver’s license issued in English or accompany a non-English license with an international driving permit. For instance, you may not need an IDP for the United Kingdom if your DL is US-based but you must present your passport at the rental desk. However, to drive across the channel by ferry or shuttle, you will need an IDP. Similarly, you must have it in days of heightened security checks.

  • Yes and no. It depends on which rental company you are dealing with. Some agencies require all renters to be 25 years and above while some accept drivers who have attained a least 21 years of age.

  • For cheaper rates, we recommend the full-to-full fuel policy. This option allows you to pick up a car with a full tank, which you later return with the same level of gas. If not, you may end up paying a different rate than the regular gas price.

  • On average a rental car at London Southend Airport costs $20 per day.

  • In the past 72 hours, the cheapest rental cars were found at Europcar ($79/day).

  • The only car rental company that offers shuttle or pick-up services from London Southend Airport to off-airport locations is Europcar.
