Gibraltar Airport Guide

Car Hire

Gibraltar Airport serves the small British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar. The airport literally juts into the Strait of Gibraltar, right on the Spanish border. It is located a few minutes’ walk from the town centre. In fact, its close proximity to the Spanish border makes it a popular option for those heading to the southern coast of Spain, allowing travellers to avoid some of the most overcrowded airports in Spain. Self-driving is an easy option, with several car hire companies with desks right in the airport. Buses and taxis are the other transportation options.

Who to Book With
Four leading international car hire suppliers are present at Gibraltar Airport: Alamo, Dollar, Europcar and Thrifty. Gibraltar is small in size and is therefore easy to navigate by car.

Need to Know Essentials
You will need to show the following documents at vehicle collection:

- UK driver’s licence (both parts). Non-EU drivers will need to have a valid International Driver’s Licence
- Credit card with which the car hire reservation was made
- A passport or picture ID
- Booking confirmation

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
