If you're planning on choosing a car hire at Grimsby Humberside Airport, consider the bigger brand names like Avis and Europcar. After moving through the baggage claim and security areas of the airport, head to the main Arrivals Terminal, where you'll find these company rental counters. If you've booked in advance, you'll hand in your passport and fill out the rental forms before being taken to the car park where the rental is.
The trading hours of the various car rental companies differ depending on the company being used. Avis at the airport is generally open between 08:00 and 18:00 Monday to Friday, 08:00 till 13:00 on Saturdays and closed on Sundays. Budget Car Hire has similar trading hours to Avis, while Europcar is open 24h a day the whole week.
Currently, Grimsby Airport doesn't have its own dedicated car park but the rental desks in the airport offer the same amenities that all travellers experience. Adjacent to the information desk at the Arrivals Terminal, you'll find the currency exchange desks if you need to exchange money. You'll also have access to a variety of airport restaurants and bars, duty-free shops, express shops and the airport’s very own in-house travel agency dedicated to helping you with all your travel needs.
The UK age requirements for car rental vary depending on the company that you choose. The majority of the companies require you to be at least 21 years old with a valid licence that you've held for more than a year. Some require you to be 25 years old. If you're younger than 25, you can expect a young driver surcharge to be added for you and any additional driver. You will need to produce a valid driver’s licence, proof of identity, as well as a credit card.
Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Grimsby Humberside airport to off-airport locations include Avis, Budget, Europcar, and keddy by Europcar.
