Newquay is a lively town, but there's much more to this seaside destination in north Cornwall than nightlife. Whether you're planning a surf mission or two, or you're keen to explore the beautiful Cornish countryside (and why wouldn't you be?) hiring a car is the best way to get the most from the area.

There are flights to Cornwall Airport Newquay (NQY) from Europe and further-flung parts of the UK. Although the airport is small, it's well set up for holidaymakers, and Hertz and Europcar both have offices just outside the arrivals hall. There aren’t any car hire offices in Newquay town centre, so plan ahead if you’ll need a vehicle and are looking for a cheap deal.

Once you’ve picked up your rental car, it’s just a 15-minute drive to Newquay along the B3276 coastal road, bringing you into town with some lovely views over Porth Beach. Alternatively, you can take the inland A3059, which takes roughly the same amount of time.

Car rental companies at Cornwall Airport Newquay include:

  • Hertz (Tel: 01637 860869)
  • Europcar (Tel: 0371 384 3415)
  • Budget (Tel: 0344 544 8930)
  • Avis (Tel: 0344 544 6109)
