Hertz’s full-service branch at London Gatwick’s North Terminal now open

LONDON — Hertz UK now offers the first full service car rental service at London Gatwick’s North Terminal. Hertz customers travelling to or from Gatwick’s North Terminal will be able to collect and return their car hire at Hertz’s new branch in the Sofitel London Gatwick hotel.

Hertz customers landing at the North Terminal will no longer need to take the inter-terminal shuttle to the South Terminal to collect their vehicle.

“The opening of our new branch at Gatwick Airport’s North Terminal represents an important milestone in our UK expansion. Hertz is now the only car rental provider to have vehicles as well as a desk at the North Terminal,” said Rafael Girona, Vice President North Europe, Hertz. “This advantage means that Hertz customers do not need to travel between terminals to collect their car. With some of the most important European and US airlines flying to and from the North Terminal, we trust our new branch will be welcomed by travellers who need to hit the road quickly.”

Located in the lobby of Sofitel Hotel, the Hertz branch, signposted at the North Terminal, is easily reached via a short walkway. The new branch increases Hertz’s presence at Gatwick Airport, as the company continues to serve customers from its existing branch at the South Terminal.

London Gatwick is the second largest airport in the UK with 43.1 million passengers in 2016. Some 53 airlines currently operate from the airport including Hertz partners Virgin Atlantic and Emirates.

The opening of the new rental branch at London Gatwick, North Terminal, is part of Hertz’s ongoing investment in the expansion of its UK network. The company has also recently opened a new rental location at Penzance, increasing its presence in Devon and Cornwall.

Expansion is already in the works at Swoop with announcements of new U.S. and international routes on the horizon for this summer.
