That all-important first mile: driving out of Heathrow airport?

Heathrow airport Q&A

Where are the car hire desks?

There are five terminals at Heathrow, but whichever you arrive at, you'll find car hire desks in the arrivals hall. Just follow the signs or ask one of the helpful members of staff.

What should I buy at duty free?

If your wardrobe needs updating, pop into the Burberry store and pick up designer fashion items from one of Britain's most prominent style labels. And to keep the kids amused on the flight home, the world-famous Hamleys store stocks both innovative and classic toys.

Are there any cashpoints?

At Terminal 1, you'll find cash machines before and after security. At Terminal 2, there is a cash machine located in the main arrivals area - between the post office and bureau de change. If you're flying to Terminals 3 or 4, you'll find ATMs in the arrivals concourses, while cash dispensers can be found before and after passport control in Terminal 5.

Where's the best place to eat?

Whether you're looking for a quick breakfast to get your day off to a flying start or want to fill up before boarding your long-haul flight, there are plenty of places to choose from. Pick up a smoothie at Giraffe Juice, grab a tasty sandwich at Eat, or - if you're flying from Terminal 5 - why not treat yourself at Gordon Ramsay's Plane Food?

The secret tip

Remember, many flights require you check in three hours before departure. Don't forget to check which terminal you're flying from, getting it wrong could add time to your journey.
