Liverpool John Lennon Airport is one of the oldest in Great Britain, founded in 1933. It is located seven miles (12 km) south-east of the city centre, next to the River Mersey. That's why I took the plane ticket there. I also realized that it is possible to hire a car right at the airport. Here you can find cars from companies such as Avis, Enterprise, Europcar and Hertz, as well as in the city center from Green Motion Car and Van Rental and Keddy from Europcar.
