Stellar sandy beaches, an impressive line-up of family attractions and the North York Moors National Park right on the doorstep: it’s no surprise that Scarborough is one of the country’s most popular seaside resorts. Hire a car to explore the surrounding sights, from the history-packed streets of York to the ruined Gothic Abbey that inspired ‘Dracula’.

If you’re flying to Scarborough, the easiest and cheapest option is to hire a car from the airport. The nearest two airports are Humberside and Durham Tees Valley (both 90 minutes; 60 miles), both of which offer a number of international rental operators. Car hire providers Avis, Budget, and Europcar offer airport pick up at both Humberside and Durham Tees Valley airports.

Another option is to fly into Leeds Bradford Airport, which is a two-hour drive from Scarborough. It has a dedicated Car Rental Centre with four international car hire agencies.
