Car Hire Gibraltar

Gibraltar Airport Guide

There’s plenty to see and do in Gibraltar and much of it is quite unique. Take a tour through the siege tunnels to see where the people hid during the ‘Great Siege’. The energetic amongst you may like to climb the hundreds of steps that wind up the east side of the rock to the top. If you don’t fancy the climb, take the cable car for equally spectacular views from the top. Finally, walk out to Europa Point where officially the Med meets the Atlantic and from where you can see Africa.


Gibraltar Airport Directions

The airport is 2 km north of the city. If driving a hire car yourself the road into the city is straightforward until it joins the city streets. A sat-nav might be a useful option if you’re not going to get lost!


Gibraltar Airport Parking

Car parking at Gibraltar Airport has changed now that it’s constructing a new terminal. The parking is now east of the terminal in a new multi-storey car park holding 220 cars. You’ll find three more long term facilities further out from the terminal building near the Eastern Beach.


Gibraltar Airport Flight Information

The airport is very conveniently found north of the city and only minutes away. Flights all originate in the UK and easyJet are the chief operator, offering low cost flights from UK airports.


Hotels Near Gibraltar Airport

Gibraltar has many smart hotels and we’d recommend you take a look at the Elliot Hotel on Governor’s Parade or the Rock Hotel where John Lennon and Yoko Ono married. The Emile Youth Hostel is nice but expensive for a hostel at 20 euros a night.


Gibraltar Time Zone

Gibraltar is one hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time and is part of the Central European Time Zone (GMT+1)

Gibraltar Info

Gibraltar is famous for many reasons which include the iconic Rock of Gibraltar which marks out the city. The rock is colonised by Barbary Macaques and it’s said that as long as they remain there, Gibraltar will stay British. That said, the Spanish are desperate to regain it and despite referendums which strongly oppose union with Spain, they still keep trying. The city is more of a weekend break destination rather than a holiday resort although it does attract thousands of tourists a year.

Gibraltar Trivia:
  • Gibraltar is a British territory in southern Spain, hotly contested by the Spanish
  • It’s famous for its ‘Rock’ and for the Barbary Macaques that live on it
  • It’s said that Gibraltar will remain British until the Macaques leave
  • Gibraltar was once Britain’s most important navy base in the western Mediterranean
  • The name Gibraltar comes from the Arabic meaning ‘the mountain of Tariq’
