Good price, long linesPros: I got a brand new car, it only had 65 miles, I was the 2nd person to hire it.Cons: Check in process was slow, there was a queue of about 8 people in front of me and 2 people behind me (Probably because the prices were so low)

Pros: Price Efficiency and speed of team at pick-upCons: Location of rental car lot at BHX airport is terrible (not Alamo's fault of course) Drop-off at 6:30am not enough staff working at the pickup/dropoff location. Had to leave the car without it being inspected as all (2) staff (Enterprise) were working with pickup customers.

Car rentalPros: The ease of the booking by KayakCons: The rental companies hidden policies of having to supply 2 x household bills. Large excess of £1250.00!
4.0 Okay3 Feb 2017
Huge crack in windscreen in drivers viewPros: Cheap and efficientCons: I needed to extend the car and it was £21 cheaper to do this via a broker which meant I had to make the trip to green motion to effectively hand over another £400 deposit to keep the same car. Why this couldn't be done over the phone, I do not know.

Top tips for hiring a car in Birmingham

  • Explore the beautiful city of Birmingham and the surrounding English countryside conveniently with your own four wheels during a visit. One of the major attractions not to be missed is the Cadbury Chocolate Factory, which seduces visitors with what many would call the best chocolate in the UK. It is located about a 30-minute drive from the city, so you can easily reach it with your own hire car.
  • Birmingham Airport is located a 30-minute drive from the city center, so opting for a car immediately upon your arrival is the quickest way to get your journey started. The car hire center is located in the arrivals hall next to Costa Coffee and includes agencies like Avis, Sixt, and Europcar, among others. The quickest way into Birmingham center is via the M6.
  • In all of Britain, drivers drive on the left side of the road, which may be confusing at first for travelers coming from countries where traffic stays on the right. One way to make it easier is to rent an automatic car, so the stick shift does not have to be controlled by the left hand. Also, following other cars can be helpful in the beginning. When entering a roundabout, remember to go counterclockwise.
  • During peak hours, which are usually between 8-10 am and 4-7 pm, rush hour can mean innumerable commuters clogging up the city, and waiting times for up to one hour. It is advised to drive to destinations outside this timeframe if possible. Also note that some words differ in the UK from the US. It may be helpful to know that M always abbreviates a motorway (freeway or interstate) and “Yield” is called “Give way” in England.

  • Book your rental car in Birmingham at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • As with most bigger cities, it can be challenging to find a parking spot or zoom in and out of the city with a bulky car. Therefore, a compact economy car is a good choice when visiting Birmingham. A smaller car needs less gas, is easier to navigate, and is also less of a challenge for drivers who are not used to driving on the left side.

  • Unlike many European countries, England’s speed limits are given in miles per hour. Within the city areas, mostly 20 mph is permitted, while in other built-up areas it is 30 mph. The limit is 60 mph for streets with one lane in each direction and 70 mph on streets with two lanes in each direction and freeways (motorways).

  • Petrol prices in the UK are known to be higher than in many other European countries. The average price for petrol in Birmingham lies around £1.25 per liter (which is about $6.40 per gallon). The cheapest petrol stations are often at Tesco or Sainsbury’s supermarkets. Almost every petrol station in Britain takes credit cards and most of them are also open 24/7, apart from ones in the city center where they might close at 10 or 11 pm.

  • On-street parking in Birmingham is usually metered, but free on Sundays. There are also parking lots like the Great Charles Street lot or Markets Multi-Storey Car Park, which are reasonably priced between £4 and £10 (approximately $5.00 to $13.00). The most convenient way for parking your car overnight or for a couple of days is by opting for a hotel with a parking space included.
