East Midlands Airport (EMA)

Address:
Castle Donington, Derby DE74 2SA

Situated between the cities of Leicester, Nottingham and Derby, East Midlands Airport is served by a number of airlines, including Ryanair and Jet2.com. The airport is a popular pick-up location for hire cars; its close proximity to the M1 provides easy access to the UK’s extensive motorway network.

East Midlands Airport welcomes over four million visitors each year — and we help many of them find exclusive car hire deals, from a number of different companies.

Finding a great deal

In one simple search, you can compare all well-known car hire companies (including Hertz, Enterprise and Alamo) to find the right deal for you.

We want you to be sure that you’re hiring with a trusted company, so to help you make an informed choice, we ask each customer to rate and review their overall rental experience. You can see what they think about each company once you search for a car on our site. We think being transparent and upfront is the best way to be.

Don’t forget: when you book a car with a full-to-full fuel policy (there are lots of cars with this policy at East Midlands Airport), you will avoid hidden fuel charges (as long as you refill the tank just before you drop the car off).

Choice of cars

Whether you want something small or spacious, we make it easy to find the perfect hire car for you. Simply use the filters in the side bar to tell us exactly what you are looking for — such as a car with air conditioning or from a specific supplier.

The mini, economy and compact cars are ideal for couples and single travellers without much luggage, while the spacious estates are great for families — and the people carriers can generally accommodate four large bags and up to nine people. If you really want to make an impression, why not splash out on a premium car or luxury vehicle?
