On site collections: Manchester Airport has it’s own Car Rental village, this is located between Terminal 1 & 3, but don’t worry, you don’t have to walk! There is a shuttle bus that runs every 10 minutes from all of the terminals to take you directly to your rental desk. You will approach the relevant supplier, complete the paper work and then make your way outside to your vehicle, which will generally be parked in car rental parking / long stay car parking area.

Off site collections/Meet & Greet: Some local suppliers who do not have a desk in the terminal or in the car rental village will offer a meet and greet car hire service. Meaning when you arrive, you call them on a pre determined telephone number and they will advise you of a meeting point within the terminal where you will be greeted by an employee or some companies will ask you to jump on the car park/hotel hopper bus to the meeting point.


A few things to remember about driving in Manchester include:

  1. In the UK you drive on the left hand side of the road
  2. Speed limits in built up areas are 30mph, 20mph near schools & motorways are 70mph, but watch out for road signs for changes
  3. Around Manchester “Smart Motorways” often indicate different speed limits based on traffic conditions
  4. Don’t touch your phone whilst driving, this results in a hefty fine & points on your licence

As for driving around the airport, Manchester airport is well connected to main roads. It’s close the the M60, Manchesters outer ring road, which also has access to the M62 so you can travel between Leeds & Liverpool. The city centre is only 20 minutes drive away and is well sign posted, so you should have no issues.
