Car Rental at Heathrow

We will be renting a car from Hertz out of Heathrow. Three questions:

1. How far in advance should we book the car?

2. Where is the Hertz counter in terminal 3 (traveling on Virgin Atlantic).

3 We are getting car insurance at the Hertz counter. Is there a better idea that works. We have a VISA card which has car insurance as part of the card but Ive heard a number of bad things about using it in the Uk if there is an accident. Thanks a million Jim

I hope you are not intending to get off a flight in a tired, jet-lagged state and immediately attempt to drive on the 'wrong' side of the road, in an unfamiliar car and with UK traffic conditions - a danger to yourself and more importantly to other road users.

Many threads here cover the folly of such an action

1 car rental prices are astonishingly variable. But it's rare that you'd get a better last minute deal than booked in advance.

2 there is no car rental at T3. You get the Hertz shuttle bus to their pound

3 you need to read the terms if your own insurance to see if/what it covers
