Car Hire / Atm's Heathrow

Should I book a vehicle prior to leaving South Africa on Monday or will it be easier to hire a car from Heathrow to drive to Windsor - which car hire recommended ?

Which ATM.s are best to look out for to use my credit card?

I would pre-book

I prefer Hertz but see which of the bigger firms has the best rates - Hertz, Avis, National Dollar etc.

There are often discount codes/CDP codes around.

ATMs - any in the Visa network? Avoid 'private' ATMs often found in off licences etc. that charge a fee. I wouldn't use a credit card in an ATM as they charge interest fees. Use a debit card instead if you can.

Hi,

Make sure you avoid "Green Motion" car hire company.

Look on Tripadvisor London Forum for the reason

Credit card & ATM should be a no-no unless desperate
