Customer questions about Heathrow Terminal 3 car hire

Hola, looking for a quote for car hire from Heathrow (T3) from the 6th June - 4th July, for 2 x adults and suitcases, I am after a manual diesel.

Hi, we do offer diesel cars but are often significantly more expensive and unless you plan to cover high miles it may be more economical to opt for a standard petrol car. Unless there is a specific need for a diesel car, a petrol car often works out a better deal.
