Why hire a car?

Whether you need to hire a car to get to the airport or for your onwards journey once you arrive, it could be the perfect solution for you if you aren’t too keen on public transport. Likewise, if you plan on exploring your local surroundings once in Newcastle, it would be ideal to have your own car rather than rely on trains and buses – it’ll probably be cheaper, too!

To take advantage of the best deals from the six providers at Newcastle Airport, we suggest booking your rental in advance. Below we have listed all you need to know about the providers, including their contact information, ready for you to make your decision and get booking.

Information for Under 25s

car rental gatwick

The age you can hire a car from at Newcastle Airport really depends on the provider as they all have different minimum age requirements. Most stipulate that you need to be at least 23-25 years old, and if you are younger than this, you will be subject to pay a Young Driver’s Surcharge. In the below provider sections, we will cover their minimum age requirements and what their YDS is as this will vary with each provider and even rental location.

Keep in mind that although those prestige cars would look pretty awesome to cruise around in, you probably won’t be able to hire one unless you’re over the age of 30…sorry!

Documents Needed

To hire a car at Newcastle Airport you will need to present a form of ID and a valid driver’s licence upon vehicle collection. Please note: Drivers from the UK & Ireland will need to present their photo licence as well as their DVLA Code, which can be obtained from the Gov.UK webiste. If you forget either of these documents, your rental may be cancelled. Any drivers from outside the UK, with a full driving licence, can drive using this for up to 12 months.

Tips

car rental gatwick
  • The most important thing you must do when you receive the keys? Thoroughly inspect your vehicle, inside and out!
    You may be tired from your travels but we can’t stress enough how important that 5 minute check can be. If you find any damage tell your provider before you leave the forecourt and make sure they document it and you receive a copy of it, too. If you don’t do this the provider may charge you for any damage which may have already been on the vehicle, such as scratches, chips, curbed alloys and even scratches and burns to the upholstery.
  • Always check the fuel policy of your rental car; Full to Full? Full to Empty? Pre paid with a partial refund? Each have their pros and cons so make sure you do your research. In a nutshell, if they provide you with a full tank of fuel (which you pay for upfront) make sure you know whether you need to return the tank empty, full again or if you can be refunded for any unused fuel.
  • Finally you should make sure you are aware of the road laws and regulations in place at your car hire destination. For example, the national speed limit differs for each country and also some countries measure their speed in kilometers an hour and some measure speed on miles per hour. Car Hire Centre has more car hire advice to assist you when hiring a car.

Airport Surcharge

You may find that when you hire a car from an airport based provider that they request you pay an Airport Surcharge Fee. This is because car hire providers are charged themselves by the airport to use their facilities. This charge, providers often pass on to their customers. Sometimes it is included in your policy fee, but sometimes you have to pay it when you arrive at the airport. To check your provider’s policy regarding airport surcharges you should read their policy wording or check on their website.

One Way Hire

One way hire is perfect for those wanting to hire a car to get to the airport, or for those arriving and departing from different locations,
As long as the two locations qualify, you can pick up at one airport and return the vehicle to another.
Europcar offer a service called “Airport Connect” for The price starts from £49.
