Isle of Man Airport Guide

Car Hire

Isle of Man Airport, or Ronaldsway Airport, is situated along the south coast of the island, around seven miles southwest of the island capital, Douglas. With scheduled services running weekly from the UK, the Channel Islands and Ireland, it is the main airport on the island. From here, it is easy to self-drive to the capital and across the rest of the island. A number of bus services are also available.

Who to Book With
There are three car rental companies available at the airport. Athol Car Hire is a local company that has offices across the island. Isle of Man Rent a Car is an agent of Hertz and has an office in the main terminal, along with Mylchreests Car Rental, a local agent for the international company Avis.

Need to Know Essentials
The following documents are required to collect a vehicle:

- A valid driver’s licence (both the paper and photo ID parts)
- The credit card used for the transaction
- A valid passport
- Proof of address, such as a phone bill
- Booking confirmation email or number

Driving on the Isle of Man is similar to driving within the UK. Traffic regulations on the whole are the same and driving is on the left. However, unlike in the UK, there is no national speed limit across the island but rather there are only limits in built-up areas. Many of the built-up areas have been zoned for parking. A useful item is a parking disc, which can be purchased from most car rental companies. Drivers can then use this disc to indicate time of arrival and will be charged according to how long the vehicle has been parked. The length of stay for disc parking is usually limited to two hours.

See our guide to the UK for more information on driving here.


There are a number of bus services and taxis available for visitors. The bus service does not run 24 hours. There is also the Isle of Man steam railway. Although this service does not run directly to the airport, there are a number of bus services to the railway station.

The taxi rank can be found outside of the main airport entrance. Although taxis tend not to stay at the taxi rank 24 hours, they are there to meet all flight arrivals. There are fixed charges for destinations across the island. Some of the reliable operators providing service at the airport include Ramsey Radio Cabs, A2B Airport Taxi and Flightline Taxi.

Isle of Man Airport to Douglas is about £18
Isle of Man Airport to Port Erin is about £18

Bus services 1 and 2 both stop outside of the main terminal. These services operate daily between the airport and a number of tourist spots and main towns, such as Douglas, Santon, Castletown and Port Erin. The number 8 service runs to Peel and Foxdale. All buses are run by Isle of Man Transport, with services running from Monday to Saturday.

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).
