Aberdeen Airport car hire

Airport Code: ABZ

The Aberdeen Airport is located just 6 miles northwest of Aberdeen city centre in Dyce.  It was the second busiest airport in Scotland in 2010, and it offers a wide range of domestic as well as European international flights.  Aberdeen Airport operates several flights daily to the major domestic hubs, such as London Heathrow Airport, London Gatwick Airport, and London Luton Airport, frequently to major European hubs, and offers longer distance holiday flights on a seasonal basis.  Reserve a car hire from Aberdeen Airport for your stay in Scotland.

Aberdeen is the third largest city in Scotland, and while it may be overshadowed  by its two bigger sister cities, Glasgow and Edinburgh, it's managed to collect more affectionate nicknames.  Known as the "Silver City," "Rainbow City," or the "Granite City" due to the sparkle of a particular stone which was used for centuries on buildings across the city, Aberdeen today is most accurately the "Flower of Scotland" for the many beautiful parks, gardens and flower displays you can enjoy on a visit there.  Take an Aberdeen Airport car rental around to enjoy the city's green spaces.


Aberdeen Airport has an area next to the main entrance of the terminal where major car rental company desks can be found.  The car rental pick up is at Broomfield Road.  

The following companies can be found inside Aberdeen Airport:

  • Avis
  • Hertz
  • National
  • Europcar
  • Alamo
