How do I pick up a rental car at Hamilton Airport?

There is one terminal and a range of on-site car rental brands to select from at Hamilton Airport. See below for clear instructions on how to find Hamilton Airport’s car hire desks and where to pick up your rental car.

Hamilton Airport terminal

  • Hamilton Airport Terminal

    Hamilton Airport has a single passenger terminal with two floors for domestic flights. As the airport only has the one terminal building, there is no need to worry about getting between terminals.

Pick up instructions

  • Is your rental company desk on-airport or off-airport?

    On airport
    The on-airport hire car desks in Hamilton Airport are located on the ground floor of the terminal, opposite the baggage claim area.
  • Finalise your rental agreement and collect keys

    Once you are at the hire car company desk, you’ll need to finalise your rental agreement and collect your vehicle keys.
  • Head to the designated car park to pick up your car

    Domestic Terminal

    On airport
    The on-airport hire cars are parked just outside the terminal, a short walking distance away.
  • What should I do if the desk is unattended?

    Hopefully the car rental company has left a sign with instructions or a contact number. In this situation, use the number they have provided and let them know that you have arrived or follow the directions out to the car park where a rental attendant will help you.

    If there is no sign, check your booking confirmation email for a contact phone number.

    If you still have no luck finding assistance, contact us. Don’t be alarmed. It’s not unusual to see unmanned desks, and rest assured there’s usually someone who can help out in the car park where the rental cars are located.

    We'll be right back

Returning a hire car at Hamilton Airport

  • Domestic Terminal

    To return your on-airport hire car, park in the rental car park area at Hamilton Airport.

    Return your keys to the desk, and if the desk is unattended, or for after-hours returns, place the keys in the drop box located at the counter.
