Not flying in?

If you want to save time when going through security, then you can upgrade to a priority pass for just £3 online or £5 at the airport. This will give you a shortcut through to the security hall.
Size of car
If you have luggage with you, make sure you take this into account when you book a car. Travelling long distances is best when you are comfortable, especially after a tiring flight.
Around the airport
Luton Airport is right next to the M1, a brilliant motorway linking the capital with Leeds, a city in the North of England. It is also close to the M25 which encircles London.
Be traffic conscious
If you are returning your rental car early in the morning, the roads getting into Luton can be really busy. Many flights depart early, so allow extra time to account for the possibility that you may be sitting in standstill traffic for a while. Security queues will be long at this time, too.

Heading into London
A day out
Hampton Court Palace
If England’s rich and fascinating history is what brings you to its shores, a day trip to Hampton Court Palace is an absolute must. Located in West London’s suburbs, this 16th-century royal palace was built for Henry VIII’s chief advisor, Thomas Wolsey, and was later reclaimed by the king himself. With ice-skating in the winter and the world-renowned Hampton Court Flower Show in the summer, it’s perfect for all seasons. As well as housing and displaying artworks from the Royal Collection, it also features a maze and hosts various events throughout the year.
