      Explore Birmingham

      Birmingham is the second largest city in the UK. Thousands of tourists visit this wonderful city each year. The city is home to a whole host of things to do and see, offering an array of cultural activities, historical sites and, of course, a range of delicious restaurants and bars in which to spend the evenings. Getting around by public transport is relatively easy, but if you wish to avoid the crowds or head out into the countryside, then getting a cheap car hire in Birmingham is your best way forward.

      Birmingham’s Attractions

      Within the city lies an eclectic mix of things to do. A modern addition to the must-see list is the Library of Birmingham. Opened in 2013, it houses a traditional collection of books as well as modern, digital ones. It’s also spread over ten levels, with different sections dedicated to specific areas. Close to the Bullring - the city’s main shopping area - lies the Custard Factory. Not to be confused with anything about the dessert, this area offers a range of boutiques and independent shops in which to get lost for hours. For a little bit of nature, heading out of the city takes you to the Botanical Gardens. These were opened 200 years ago, and their crowning glory is the four spectacular greenhouses, each containing a different natural environment. To round off the trip, particularly if you have children in tow, is Cadbury World. Head here to explore the chocolate-making factory in all its glory. With 14 different zones to wander about, it’s easy to get immersed in this experience, and easier still to take home almost enough chocolate to last a lifetime.

      Saving On Car Rental in Birmingham UK

      Getting some economy car hire will depend on the time of year that you visit. Usually, though, car rental in the city is around £13 per day for the smaller car type and as much as £45 for the larger - though in this city, smaller is most definitely better. In order to get the best price, we do recommend taking the car for a longer period of time, as a week-long rental will see a lower daily charge than that of just a couple of days.

      There are also a number of extras that can come along with budget car hire in Birmingham and these include:

      • Unlimited mileage
      • Third party liability
      • Theft protection
      • Air conditioning
      • Collision Damage Waiver

      These are available on all cars, even the most budget-friendly ones.

      Getting the Cheapest Car Hire in Birmingham UK

      In order to make the best of your trip, there are a few tips to bear in mind when renting. Shop around using our comparison site, and you will quickly find the company that is offering the best prices. Make sure to be organized, as cheap car rental in Birmingham is better when booked in advance. As mentioned, a week-long booking can offer lower prices, with cars costing just £9 per day compared to £15 per day for a three-day rental in the same time period. Another thing to keep in mind is that the summer months, July and August, see the price rise dramatically.

      Where the pick-up and drop-off points are will also have a bearing on price, and, to that effect, collecting the car at Birmingham Airport is significantly cheaper than doing so from Birmingham Downtown. Dropping it off at the same pick-up is also prudent, as you won’t be charged extra fees.

      Road Rules in the UK

      1. In the UK, all drivers drive on the left-hand-side of the road
      2. Drivers and passengers in the car must all wear a seatbelt
