Bristol Airport Car Hire

Bristol Airport Car Hire header

As Bristol Airport is located outside of Bristol town centre, car hire is one of the easiest modes of transport to get to the airport. You can choose to hire either self drive or chauffeur driven car hire from Bristol Airport and it is up to you which would be most suitable for your transport needs.

There are 5 car hire providers located at Bristol Airport. The pick up and drop off locations are close to the terminal building next to the Long Stay Car Parks. The car hire pick up and drop off is signposted and in walking distance of the terminal building.

You can choose to book your car hire upon arrival at the airport, but you may miss out on deals or discounts plus you may have less choice on what vehicle you can hire. Therefore, you should try and hire your car in advance so you save money and have reassurance you have your preferred vehicle.

Map of Bristol Car Hire Locations

You’ll find the car rental desks in the Car Rental Centre, located past Terminal 2 on the right side of the main terminal. Alternatively, some desks for car rental providers can be found in the main arrivals hall.

Here’s a handy map to help you find your way around car hire locations around the airport and across to central Paisley and Bristol.

Important information you need before you rent a car

To prove you are who you say you are, and that you have a full and valid driving license… you’ll have to provide it to the car hire providers. A photocopy doesn’t cut it, the company will need the real item to be 100% confident in lending you one of their cars.

Documents you'll need at Bristol Airport Car hire

Because some airports charge car hire providers for distributing their services from the airport itself. Often, this charge is passed on to you as the customer… something to bare in mind when budgeting in car hire to your trip.

Car Hire price may include an airport surcharge

You can still rent a car if you’re under 25 and with a valid driving license. However, there’s an extra charge for younger drivers to cover extra insurance fees and such. It’s called the Young Driver Surcharge which can cost around £32.50 per day (depending on provider and vehicle).

Car hire information for the under 25s

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!

Bristol Airport Car Hire Companies

To help you out, all of the providers will have child seats and sat navs available to hire, as well as providing hand controls for disabled passengers. Sometimes these added extras might cost you so it’s worth checking the details when you book or pick up your car. On top of this, they all also have a handy app so you can keep on top of your booking at all times.
