Guy Salmon Opens First On-Airport Rental Service In The UK

 Guy Salmon Prestige Rental has opened the first fully in-terminal vehicle rental service in the UK at Heathrow Terminal 1. In a unique development for the travel industry, the Guy Salmon fleet will be located right next to the terminal building, giving customers direct access to their rental vehicle - no waiting, no buses.

Customers arriving at the new rental desk will be invited to take seat as they complete their rental agreement and will then be taken to their vehicle, which will be waiting for them in the Guy Salmon car park located directly opposite the pedestrian exit of the main terminal building. A Guy Salmon concierge will be on hand to assist them with any luggage.

Andy Crinson, General Manager for Guy Salmon Prestige Rental says: "Travel agents can now offer business and leisure customers flying into Terminal 1 a really personalised speedy service as well as superb choice of top of the range vehicles for their onward journey - no fuss and no bus! With 20% commission on all rentals, agents have a great incentive to offer Guy Salmon to their customers using the airport."

Customers will be able to choose a from wide range of prestige vehicles, from the sporty BMW Z4, Porsche Boxster or Mercedes CLK & SLK Convertibles, to the fun-loving Mini Cooper S, the luxury of the Mercedes S Class or Jaguar XJ8 or one of the many other prestige vehicles on the fleet.

Once the rental has ended the customer can return the car to Terminal 1 between 6am and 6pm by simply phoning through to the concierge who will meet them directly outside the terminal building. Guy Salmon also provides a full delivery and collection service throughout the UK which means that the vehicle can also be returned to any Guy Salmon or National Car Rental location in the UK or the customer can arrange for it to be collected* from a convenient location.
