A hub for several low-cost airlines (such as easyJet and Ryanair), Stansted serves over 140 destinations around the world, and is the fourth-busiest airport in the UK after Manchester — despite having only one terminal and one runway.

We also highlight additional fees you might be expected to pay, and show you which fuel policy each car has.

A lot of people choose a car with a full-to-full fuel policy (a great way to avoid any unexpected fuel charges – as long as you refill the tank just before the end of your rental). You will find a great choice of cars with this policy at Stansted Airport.

We can also find and book one-way car hire deals; ideal if you’re not flying back out from Stansted. Some car hire companies apply a fee for this service — but don’t worry, we will let you know upfront what fees apply.

Depending on which company you decide to rent from, your pick-up location can vary. Some of the companies are located off-site and provide a shuttle bus to take you to the counter, while others offer in-terminal pick-ups to get your trip off to the simplest possible start.
