Belfast has shrugged off its troubled past and emerged as a trendy, happening city which entices visitors with as much ease as it does international party-seekers. Hop on a flight to Belfast and you will end up in Northern Ireland's most magical, progressive urban centre.

Hiring a Car in Belfast

In Belfast car hire is a worthwhile service to seek out as it will not only let you get a better look at the city on your own terms but also gives you free reign to search the rest of the region unimpeded. The car hire from Belfast Airport is supplied by major rental firms and it is worth noting that when you attempt to park in the city centre it is best to find one of the multi-storey structures as on-street parking is limited and priced to keep the roads uncluttered.

Places to Visit Around Belfast

With Belfast Botanical Gardens, an international film festival and regular markets there is never a dull moment during a stay at hotels in Belfast. If you invest in car rental in Belfast you will be able to visit all of its districts including the historic Shankill and the ancient Gaeltacht Quarter.

General Advice on Hiring a Car

When you purchase car hire you are entering into a contract with your car hire company. Always check their terms and conditions before you buy to make sure you're aware of your responsibilities when you collect your car in Belfast, and any additional charges.


Here's a few things to watch out for:

  • Almost all car hire companies add a mandatory fee for drivers under the age of 25.
  • Check what level of insurance is included for the hire car in Belfast. In particular check how much the excess is (the amount you need to pay in the event of any accident) you may want to take out additional insurance.
  • Check what the fuel policy is with your car. Don't forget to fill up the tank before you drop it off if you've agreed to return it full!
  • Find out if there's a maximum daily mileage - especially if you're planning to do a lot of driving in Belfast!
  • You'll need to pay a deposit (or pre-approve one) to pick up the car. Most car rental companies will only accept credit cards for this.
