Why hire a car at Manchester airport?

That all-important first mile: driving out of Manchester airport?

Manchester airport Q&A

Where are the car hire desks?

In the Terminal 1 arrivals hall exit baggage reclaim, walk straight ahead and you'll soon bump into car hire desks. In Terminals 2 and 3 you need to cross the road outside the arrivals halls. You'll find car hire facilities behind the taxi ranks and bus stops.

What should I buy at duty free?

If you want to take a piece of Manchester home go to, er, Manchester. The shop named after the city specialises in Manchester-made leather goods.

Are there any cashpoints?

As you would expect from an airport the size of Manchester's, there are plenty of cash machines - located in both arrivals and departures halls in Terminals 1, 2 and 3.

Where's the best place to eat?

Shun the sandwich and coffee option and sample some more sophisticated fare at the peaceful Runway Brasserie, located between Terminals 1 and 2 and reached by the impressive skylink.

The secret tip

If you find that perfect designer gift in duty free stores Biza and Alpha Airport Shopping, but don't want to lug it around on holiday, they'll gift wrap it and have it waiting for collection when you get back.

The big draw: Manchester airport

Distance: 10 miles

The city has come a long way from the mills and factories of its industrial heyday. The locals are proud of their heritage but keen to point out Manchester's contemporary culture. And it's not just Oasis and The Smiths.
