When considering your Londonderry car hire options, remember that this is the second biggest city in Northern Ireland, so tailor you choice accordingly. If you’re more of a city slicker who wants to visit the city’s hotspots and nightlife areas, then a smallish car will do you well; you certainly won’t need anything bigger than that, unless there are more than four of you. In that case opt for a compact MPV – the higher driving position and good all-round visibility will stand you in good stead.
