Important information about Birmingham car hire

How to get from Birmingham Airport (BHX) to the rental car centre

If you're flying into Birmingham, the ideal place to pick up your hire car is at the airport. There are several car hire companies operating from Birmingham Airport. Once you've passed through immigration and baggage collection, make your way to the main terminal exit and follow the "Car Rental" overhead signs to the hire desks. Keep in mind, hiring a car online through momondo will work out cheaper than arranging a car hire at the airport. If you're taking a train or bus into Birmingham, one of the most popular rental spots is in the heart of the city centre on Avenue Road in Aston, Birmingham. The bus stop is about a 2-minute walk from the car hire desk.

What documentation do I need to rent a car in Birmingham, England?

There are a couple of things to be aware of when hiring a car in Birmingham. Firstly, if you're between the ages of 21 and 24, you'll be charged an additional fee for being a young driver and you'll be limited to the kind of car you can hire. You'll need to have a valid driving licence that's at least one year old and a credit card with your name on it. If you've booked a car with someone else's card, they must be present when collecting the vehicle. Car hire companies in Birmingham won't hire a vehicle to anyone younger than 21. If you're visiting from another country and aren't a local, you may be required to provide proof of onward travel to secure your car hire. If you're registering more than one driver, each driver will need to provide a valid licence and ID document.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Birmingham?

Birmingham road rules are the same as the rest of the country, so you'll need to be aware of UK driving laws. Some of the important rules include driving on the left-hand side of the road, wearing a seat-belt at all times, and not drinking and driving. If you need to use your mobile phone, it must be connected to a hands-free device, as it's illegal to use a mobile phone while driving. If you're involved in an accident, it's important to provide your name and contact details to anyone else involved and to get their information and registration details. Adhering to the speed limit in Birmingham is important. In built-up areas, the speed limit is usually 30 mph, though there are a few residential roads that have a limit of 20 mph. If you're travelling on a single-carriageway, the limit is usually 60 mph, while dual-carriageways have a limit of 70 mph. Keep an eye out for road signs in residential areas to ensure you're aware of the speed limit at all times.

Can I drive to other states, regions or countries with a rental car from Birmingham?

Car hire companies in Birmingham usually allow travel to other cities and countries. If you're planning on crossing a border to another country, you'll need all of the rental documentation plus written permission from the rental company to cross the specific border. If you're travelling to other cities, it's recommended that you get permission from the company for insurance purposes. There are a couple of car hire companies that have restrictions on how far you're allowed to travel, so make sure you enquire with the company before paying your deposit. Some companies, like Avis, have numerous offices around the continent, so you'll be able to arrange pick-up in Birmingham and a drop-off in another country if you're travelling around.
