Our London City Airport car hire location is located only a few minutes' walk from the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and is close to all major motorways, as well as top attractions like the O2 and the Excel Centre Docklands.
Picking up your hire car at London City Airport
The Avis desk is in the Car Rental building outside the terminal. Leave through the main entrance and turn left. Once inside the car rental building, you'll find us in the middle of three desks.
When you've got your keys, please go to the Avis Park which is directly in front of the Car Rental Building to collect your car.
Returning your hire car to Avis London City Airport
Follow signs for A13 Docklands and City Airport.
If you are returning your car outside opening hours, park in any of the Avis Car Hire Returns bays. Make note of mileage, fuel reading and date of time of arrival on document wallet. Put the keys inside the document wallet and bring them with you. If the airport is still open, please leave the keys at the Airport Information Desks. If closed, press the buzzer at the door of the Terminal to summon security and leave the keys with them.

This hire station is not in the London Congestion Charge zone but drivers travelling into central London between 7am and 6pm on Monday to Friday will have to pay the charge on a daily basis. Drivers should look out for the Congestion Charge signs en route.
Find out how to pay the charge. We can process the payment on your behalf for the first day of your hire, so you have more time to relax and enjoy the journey. Just let us know when you collect your car.
Passing through the Dartford Tunnel? Please note that the small toll charge can no longer be paid at the barriers; drivers must pay online in advance or by midnight the following day. This site explains the payment system in more detail.
