Renting a car in Belfast: What you need to know

Renting a car in Belfast is subject to the same regulations as the rest of Northern Ireland. Here are a few key points to bear in mind.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Belfast?

The law in Northern Ireland dictates that you must be at least 21 years old to rent a car, and to have held your license for two years or more. Drivers aged 23 and under may incur an additional ‘young drivers’ fee.

Similarly, drivers over the age of 70 might incur an extra fee – this will vary between different rental providers. Some rental providers will set a maximum age of 69.

Is any kind of driving license valid for driving in Belfast?

Yes, as long as you have a full driving license and have held it for at least two years. If you hold a UK driving license, which comes in two parts, you must present both parts of the license.

Is a deposit required when booking a rental car?

Yes. In the UK, a deposit will be taken from your payment card at the time of booking and held during your car rental period. However, how much the deposit is will vary between car rental providers.

Which car rental companies operate in Belfast?

A number of car rental operators offer services in Belfast, including Sixt, Budget, Enterprise and Hertz. It’s worth having a look at all of them to get an idea of what each company offers.

Explore Belfast: Get lost in the Old Smoke

With its beautiful old-meets-new architecture, buzzing nightlife, and fascinating maritime history, there’s plenty to keep you occupied during your time in Belfast. Here are some of the city’s highlights.

Titanic Belfast

Belfast’s celebrated past as a shipbuilding hub is represented at Titanic Belfast, a striking modern museum on the site where the doomed RMS Titanic was built. Learn all about Belfast’s history, maritime and otherwise, and how the city rose to prominence in the 19th century.

Cathedral Quarter

This neighborhood is not only home to Belfast’s beautiful St. Anne’s Cathedral, but is also the focal point for the city’s buzzing nightlife. This is the place to come whether you’re after a quiet pint in a traditional Irish pub, or looking to experience some avant-garde live music at venues like the Black Box.

Cave Hill Country Park

To escape the urban life of Belfast, and enjoy some sweeping views over the city at the same time, drive out to Cave Hill Country Park on the outskirts of the city. Hike among moss-covered rocky outcrops and enjoy views of the dockyards and the city beyond.

Rent a car through Orbitz today and you can explore all of these, as well as the myriad other attractions Belfast has to offer.
