In recent years, Leeds has rediscovered its mojo as a cultural and commercial powerhouse – it’s ideal for a short city break. It’s also a busy motorway hub, meaning, at the wheel of a hire car, you can easily unlock the fascinating secrets of nearby rural Nidderdale, the Vale of York and the mysterious Pennine Moors. 

If you're arriving at Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA), nine miles (14.5km) north-west of the city centre, you have a choice of four approved hire car companies. Avis, Enterprise, Europcar and Hertz each have booking offices at the terminal, meaning it's easy to find a cheap rental.

Once in your hire car, it's a straightforward drive into Leeds. Turn left out of the terminal on to Whitehouse Lane and follow the A658 around the western flank of the airport. Continue along this road as it becomes the A65, driving through Kirkstall en route to the eastern suburbs and city centre.

You'll find the Car Rental Centre on the corner of Whitehouse Lane and Scotland Lane, adjacent to the long stay car parks. A free, 24/7 shuttle serves the facility – simply take the bus from outside the airport terminal and jump off at the first stop.

Car rental companies at Leeds Bradford Airport in 2024 include:

  • Avis (Tel: +44 344 544 6018)
  • Enterprise (Tel: +44 113 391 1999)
  • Europcar (Tel: +44 371 384 3421)
  • Hertz (Tel: +44 843 309 3038)
