Rent a car at Belfast International Airport with Europcar
Located approximately 11 kilometres north-west of Belfast’s lively city centre, Belfast International Airport is within close proximity to many local attractions and serves as the main port of entry for both business and leisure travellers visiting Northern Island.
If you want to explore as soon as you land, our Europcar Belfast International Airport car hire station is located in the Arrivals Hall allowing you to continue your onward journey with ease.
The Europcar car hire experience at Belfast International Airport
Choose from one of our brand new vehicles and you can head off into the distance as soon as you touch down in Northern Island. We have a wide variety of cars to choose from with family favourites including the spacious Peugeot 5008 or the Skoda Octavia Estate.
The Volvo V40 is also a great choice if you’re looking for a five-door ride from a top marque, but if it’s something small and compact you’d prefer, how about a Fiat 500 or a Vauxhall Corsa – both ideal for city driving and both eco-friendly?
We have manual and automatic cars available to suit your preferences and with flexible daily, weekly and monthly rental car hire solutions, you’re sure to find something to fulfil your needs. We offer a friendly, efficient service and as we know Belfast International Airport might not be your final stop, feel free to drop your vehicle back at an alternative Europcar station.
Discover Belfast and surroundings by car
Hiring a car from Belfast International Airport will give you the freedom and flexibility to explore Northern Island’s beauty at your own pace.
The airport itself is around a 30 minute drive from the capital where you’ll find a host of diverse attractions including the Titanic Museum, the Ulster Museum, Belfast City Hall, Botanic Gardens, Cave Hill Country Park, Belfast Zoo and Belfast Castle.
If you’re only passing through Belfast, the city centre may be enough entertainment, but if you’re in the area for a longer period of time, why not plan an adventure further afield? With access to four wheels, you can admire the scenic landscape and head to many locations that were used to film the hit fantasy TV series Game of Thrones including the caves of Cushendun, Ballycastle, The Dark Hedges – a tunnel-like avenue created by intertwined beech trees – and Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge.
Continue your adventure along the infamous Causeway Coastal Route and you’ll also come across Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its striking layered basalt columns.
Driving in Belfast
In Northern Island, drivers stay on the left and overtake on the right. Of course, this will be a little strange if you’re visiting from Europe, so take extra care as you navigate the roads.
While traffic can be heavy in the city, particularly during commuting hours which tend to fall between 7-9 in the morning and 5-7 in the evening, farm traffic can cause delays in the countryside. Whatever the case, it’s important to embrace life in Belfast and make use of maps, GPS systems and local signposts which will help you to get from A to B with ease.
With regards to parking, there are many free parking lots dotted across the city as well as those where you’ll need to pay to leave your vehicle. Visitors may also benefit from the Parkmobile app which promotes cashless parking and makes it possible to pay for and manage your parking using a mobile phone.
