  • Car rental agencies at Nottingham Airport have varying opening hours depending on the branch.

To enjoy the widest selection of car rental choices available at the airport, it is a good idea to choose a time during the week before 17:00 to collect your car. However, passengers should also be aware that EMA is popular with business travellers and may be busier during traditional rush-hour periods, such as early mornings and mid-late afternoons. If you want to beat the crowds, aim to pick up your hire car in the late morning or early afternoon, when the counters are likely to be quieter.
