Important information about Belfast car hire

Pick up your Belfast car rental at Belfast International Airport to make the less than one hour drive to central Belfast, or avoid kiosk fees by choosing from about 30 car hire locations in Belfast. In the center of town, you’ll enjoy walking or using public transit to some of the city’s most noteworthy attractions, including Albert Memorial Clock, Victoria Square and the Grand Opera House. But you’ll be glad you have your car rental in Belfast for scenic attractions, such as Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park, Belfast Castle Estate or Cave Hill County Park. Use extra caution on single-lane roads around the city with no dividing line for oncoming traffic and avoid driving during general morning and evening commute hours, which cause congestion in and around the city. Belfast offers free parking in some areas and moderately priced parking in controlled parking zones and privately operated car parks.

Belfast has many pedestrian opportunities, such as enjoying Cathedral Quarter’s cobblestone streets, bistros, cafes and clubs. Or, stroll through the museums, landmarks and shops of the Titanic Quarter. If you park by these attractions, watch for controlled parking zones, where you’ll need to buy a ticket with cash or download the JustPark app to make cashless payment. Avoid prohibited spaces, which are marked with red-painted curbs or double yellow lines. And don’t neglect the beauty that is just a day trip away. Take your cheap car rental in Belfast or cruise in your luxury car rental to Giant’s Causeway to see Dunluce Castle or the Old Bushmills Distillery. Parking here is expensive but also covers entrance to the visitor’s center. Or, enjoy a trip in your economy car rental to Londonderry (Derry) and park in nearby parking lots to walk the walls or visit Guild Hall and the Craft Village.

While driving your car rental in Belfast and anywhere in the U.K. drive on the left side of the road and always turn left when entering roundabouts. Your vehicle will have its steering wheel on the right side. Speed limits in Northern Ireland are set as an absolute maximum, so you’ll want to aim a bit below the limit, and even lower in rainy and foggy weather conditions. All vehicle occupants must wear seatbelts, and children under age 11 must have proper child restraint seating. Do not use your hand-held mobile phone while driving your rental car in Belfast and keep in mind that driving with a blood alcohol content level above 0.08% may result in a stiff fine or imprisonment. Catch up on any new driving regulations before your trip by contacting Northern Ireland’s Driver and Vehicle Agency.

You can drive in Northern Ireland if you are a resident and have a valid driving license from the European Union, Canada or the U.S. Drivers from other countries will need an international driving license. While it is legal to drive at age 17, to get a car rental in Belfast, Northern Ireland, you must be at least 21 years old and have been driving with a valid license for two years. Be sure to check with your Belfast car rental company about insurance and additional fees if your itinerary will take you outside of Northern Ireland.
