Explore Isle of Man with Expedia’s Travel Guides to find the best hotels, flights, holiday packages and more!
With a hire car at Ronaldsway Airport, you’re all set to explore the glorious countryside and quaint villages of the Isle of Man. Sit behind the wheel to retrace the steps of motorcycling legends on the TT route, but don’t try to conquer their speeds! Take the time for a pit-stop in one of the pretty villages the route passes for a cup of tea and cake. Superstitious types can say hello to the fairies as they pass Fairy Bridge on the A5. It’s a ritual the TT racers and spectators still take very seriously.
People from all over the world visit the Isle of Man for its motoring heritage, and many of the top attractions involve transport. Naturally, the most convenient way to reach them is by car! Enjoy a trip on the Isle of Man Steam Railway or the Manx Electric Railway in Douglas, and take a look at the vintage lorries, buses and cars at the Jurby Transport Museum to the north of the Isle.
Great Laxey Wheel, a leisurely drive to the north of Douglas, is the largest surviving, working Victorian water wheel in the world. You can find out even more about life on the Isle of Man in Victorian times at the Grove Museum, near Ramsey. From coastal views to exploring the winding inland lanes, with a car rental, you’re free to make your own itinerary.
