Good price, long linesI got a brand new car, it only had 65 miles, I was the 2nd person to hire it.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)

Price Efficiency and speed of team at pick-upLocation 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.

My booking was for 8.00am, I arrived at 7.35am - I could collect the car for an extra charge of GBP105... I opted to go for breakfast, better value for money. Returned at 8.15 and stood in the British January weather in the wide open for 15 to 20 minutes waiting for my turn to even get inside. This is when the magic really started - my Renault Captur (classed as an SUV by Sixt) was turned into a Skoda Fabia (manual) which is not even listed as an option with Sixt but the Automatic version is considered a saloon - yes, somehow Sixt believe that a typical Hatchback is the same as a saloon... Overall, how would I rate the Sixt experience - one of the worst ever and I have been renting cars at UK airports for over 10 years, on average once per month.

The service that you provided was excellent and I will always look on your site first to hire a carAs I had to return the car early and put the keys in the outside safe there were no staff to check over the car with me.

Birmingham counter was not open at 17:30, open hours 8am- 4 pm. Midtown Hertz location also close, open hours in internet 8am-4pm . Next morning 3 calls, message to voice Mail, no reply, 5 km walk from hotel to Hertz to get reserved car…. Hertz not open. Written paper hanging on the door… coming back 12am. Thanks a lot! Kept on walking to find a rental office having a car to rent. 5 more kilometers of training and two open rental offices….. and then found perfekt customer service, good car and again excelent service at returning the car, made us new loyal customers and fans of Enterprice car rental in Birmingham. Thank you ms T and everybody in Enterprise Birmingham central.

Car rentalThe ease of the booking by KayakThe 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 viewCheap and efficientI 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.
