Car Hire at Manchester Airport

Hiring a car is a great way of exploring Manchester for yourself, and you have the added bonus of not having to pay for extra baggage, no need to rely on public transport and you can split the cost of the hire if there is a group of you travelling.

There are 6 car hire providers, all offering a great selection of vehicles at low prices. To get the best deals, try and book as early as possible and opt to pay during the booking to save the most money! You do have the option to hire at the airport, but you’ll end up spending a bit more than you’d hoped.

You will find all of the car hire provider desks in the Car Rental Village at Manchester Airport which can be accessed by the dedicated Manchester Airport bus. You can collect your keys at the provider’s desk and then they will direct you to your car.

Why hire a car?

A hire car offers the flexibility and comfort you don’t always get with public transport; pop the sat-nav on and off you go in your air-conditioned vehicle! Explore your surroundings at your leisure, to your schedule without waiting in the rain for a bus!

Think it may be more expensive? If you total the cost of a week’s worth of public transport costs, tube, bus and train tickets, taxi fares and the like, car hire may very well come out cheaper!

The car rental providers at Manchester Airport can be found at the Car Rental village on the far side of the T1/T3 Long Stay Car Park.

And of course, a few handy tips!

  • Book ASAP – The earlier you book the better as you’ll get to save on a lot of money. Use our car hire gadget above to compare the prices and find yourself the cheapest deal.
  • Examine it for damage – you need to ensure if the car doesn’t have any scratches or body paint damage or anything else that stands out. If you notice anything, remember to take pictures of it so you can’t be charged extra when upon returning it.
  • Use a Sat-Nav – It’s a good idea to use it especially if the area is not familiar to you and you’ll be saving money on mobile data!
  • Check exactly what you’re paying for – if the price seems too good to be true, it probably is! This is because a lot of time, it may seem cheaper on the surface but there are a lot of hidden fees included.
