Car Hire - Birmingham
Birmingham is one of the most popular British cities for a short break, but more and more visitors are cottoning on to the fact that it is also the ideal base for getting out and about and exploring the Midlands. This is a wide area of England that stretches from coast to coast and many do not realise just what is on offer here to the visitor. There are numerous towns, cities and villages worth visiting here and those looking for somewhere to take an usual holiday have found their perfect spot.
As with anywhere else hiring a car is the best way of getting out and about and packing the most into a relatively short time. Even though Birmingham International Airport is only 22km away from the famous city and hire cars can be collected from here, those coming in by bus or train will not want to trail out to the airport to get their cars. Luckily, we deal with all the top names in car rental and they have branches right across the city to give you plenty of options when it comes to collecting your car rental.
You can chance your luck and wait until you arrive in Birmingham to hire a car but it seems daft to risk not getting the kind of vehicle you want or need. By booking in advance with us you will not only get a great deal but also the car you want waiting to be collected from a branch in the city. It is well worth spending a bit of time actually in Birmingham before you take to the open road as it is a much more beautiful city than many people realise.
As the country surrounding it is known as The Black Country there is a popular misconception dating back to its industrial roots that Birmingham is a dreary, grimy city. This couldn't be further from the truth as many visitors have discovered to their delight. With modern hotels, great shopping, plenty of places to eat and be entertained and the famous Brummie hospitality, spending a few days in the city before going exploring is highly recommended.
Once you decide the time is right to get going you will be spoilt for choice with the great locations which are within easy driving distance. Royal Leamington Spa, Hereford and Worcester, Coventry and Tamworth are all within driving distance of Birmingham and why not crossing the border into Wales and exploring this much underrated area of the UK while you are at it?
Road trips around the Midlands can be great fun, and it is entirely up to you if you want to plan an itinerary in advance or simply go with the flow that is entirely up to you too. Whichever way you want to do it you will be glad you booked your car hire in advance and have the top quality vehicle you chose at your disposal. Make sure to book this at the same time as your transport to get the best deal we can give you.
