Newcastle Airport (NCL) is an international airport that is located within the village of Woolsington, Tyne and Wear County, England, United Kingdom and for satellite navigation the postcode is NE13 8BZ. It lies northwest of the city of New Castle upon Tyne and primarily serves the whole of Tyne and Wear, Cumbria and Northumberland. The facility opened on the 26th of July 1935 with only a grass runway until it grew larger and better throughout time. The airfield today is one of the United Kingdom's largest and busiest airports. Amongst it's well-loved facilities are airport lounges, safe and secure parking spaces, shopping area, prayer room, business services and games and leisure facilities.

The Airport not long ago published a Master Plan that sets out development proposals for the airport until 2016. In the short term, these include erecting a multi-storey car park to replace the current short-stay parking, a new 187-bedroom on-site hotel and the expansion of the freight facilities on the south side of the airport.

Newcastle Airport is a very child friendly airport. Whether your little ones want to go and buy their favourite comic or get some treats from Biza (tax and duty free, of course), there are many ways to keep your children entertained. And of course the great view of the airfield from the departure lounge - a perfect spot to watch planes navigate the skies, and keep everyone of any age fascinated.

Why book a hire car with VroomVroomVroom?

When choosing car hire from VroomVroomVroom, you can not only expect a great car hire experience and top customer service, you can also expect a little guidance and support if you have not ever used a hire car before.

Car hire in Newcastle Airport is a great way to enjoy a first rental experience. And being a smaller Airport that the major UK ones like Heathrow Airport, Gatwick Airport, Stansted Airport and London City Airport, things will not seem so daunting when it comes to collection time!

Before you leave to pick up your car, always make sure that you have the following with you:
  • ALL parts of your full current valid drivers license
  • A recent utility bill (last 3 months) showing your name and full address
  • Your passport (if you bring this you do not need the utility bill)
  • A map of the local area that you will be driving in
  • A SAT NAV (if you do not have one you could always hire one from the car hire suppliers
  • a camera.... so you can remember your first car hire experience!!
If you are arriving to the UK from abroad and have not visited us before, here are a few road tips for you:
  • We drive on the LEFT
  • We enter roundabouts looking to the RIGHT and driving to the LEFT
  • We take traffic lights very seriously so do not run any red or amber ones, especially if there is a large yellow camera on a grey pole just before the junction! These are road cameras and they will report you for jumping a red light and you will be fined or worse!
  • Do NOT speed at any time
  • Enjoy our countryside, it's one of our best qualities!
We also have a more indepth information page regarding the UK Driving Regulations that you might benefit from viewing before your car hire pick up.
