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 5 car hire providers, plus Budget Rent a Car to choose from at Manchester Airport, 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 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 weeks 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 as early as you can: The more in advance you can book, the more money you’ll save! Use the Car Hire Centre gadget above to get a quote and find the cheapest rates for your journey.
  • Check, Check and then Check again!: Once you pick up the keys to your vehicle, check over it for any damage. Take note of any slight scratches, body paint issues/ irregularities, seat quality (like any potential smudges or cigarette marks). Be sure to take pictures and ensure the rental staff write down the pre-existing damge (if it isn’t already) so you can avoid being charged for someone else’s damage when you return it.
  • Get to know your vehicle: Be sure to familiarise yourself with the car before you leave the car hire centre. Check you’re up-to-date on UK driving laws and if anything’s in a different place – such as Fiat 500s and KAs have a much higher gear stick to what you might be used to!
  • Opt for a Sat-Nav: Especially if you don’t know the area and don’t want to get charged for all that data on your phone!
