Car hire can be the best means of travel to and from Terminal 4 for many people. If you’re in the UK for a holiday, you may need a car while you’re here, so it can make sense to hire one which you can pick up and drop off from the airport. If you’re driving to Terminal 4, make sure you enter the airport at the correct entrance. Terminal 4 is at the southern side of the airport site, with its own entrance. From the M25, exit at Junction 14 and follow signs. From the M4 exit at Junction 4b onto the M25 and then head to Junction 14.
