FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Birmingham Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Birmingham

The city of 1,000 trades, Birmingham’s industrial legacy runs right through the second largest city in the UK and offers a lot in the 21st century. HAPPYCAR is here to help you find the best car hire Birmingham has to offer so you can take full advantage of this dazzling city and a direct car hire Birmingham Airport is also available. We check the prices of international and local providers so that you don’t have to check each website, and provide you with the best deals to make your money go further for a car hire that is specific to your rental needs.

General Information

With a population of over one million, Birmingham was once the heart of the industrial revolution and its boom years brought in the good and bad. Over the years, however, the city has outgrown its squalor and has been redeveloping into a modern metropolis worthy of its place in history. Birmingham has also embraced a highly multicultural group of residents and is associated with a number of titanic historical and literary figures, from J.R.R. Tolkien to Joseph Priestly and Erasmus Darwin, Charles Darwin’s father, who founded the Lunar Society, an extraordinary melting pot of scientific and industrial ideas. Today, its cosmopolitan sheen shines brightly and its nightlife is legendary.

To Do

Birmingham is a great stopover for chocolate connoisseurs and a visit to Cadbury World is a must. A Birmingham car rental can take you four miles south of the city to Bourneville, where visitors can learn about the Cadbury family, score some free chocolate and enjoy chocolate-themed rides. For a taste of the city’s history, visitors can head to the Custard Factory, one of the few remaining industrial-style buildings on the high street. The arts are also strongly represented in Birmingham. With a large variety of museums and art galleries on offer such as the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, which has a stunning display of Renaissance masterpieces. Birmingham has a large canal network and extensive development has enhanced the environment and level of amenities around the canals in the city center, making them excellent pedestrian routes in their own right.

Attractions

Thanks to the city’s diverse population, there are religious buildings that are scattered across Birmingham, and are beautiful sights to visit. Excellent examples include St. Philip’s Cathedral and Birmingham Central Mosque. The Jewellery Quarter is a fantastic sight in Birmingham, and not only does it still provide around 40% of the UK’s jewellery, this Georgian relic is also open to the public. One and a half kilometers north of the Quarter is Soho House, where industrialist Matthew Boulton lived and you can take a tour through his restored 18th century dwellings. A fantastic modern piece of architecture can be found right in the middle of Birmingham – shaped like an upside-down ziggurat, the Birmingham Central Library is the busiest public library in Britain and worth a visit for the sleek eight floors.

Eating

Birmingham is known as the Balti capital of England, as the Anglo-Indian dish was invented there in 1977. Two miles south of the city there is a cluster of around 50 restaurants called the Balti Triangle, that caters to lots of different types of food, particularly Indian, and is a popular draw. Birmingham also has a large student population, so a number of affordable eateries and chain restaurants are available, including Chinese, Italian and English food. The night life is buzzing in Birmingham and there are a ton of places to drink in the middle of the city, especially on Broad Street.

Excursions

Birmingham is conveniently located in the middle of the UK with motorways snaking out of the city, so a Birmingham car hire can open up much of the rest of the country for short excursions or more protracted stays. The nearby locations of Shropshire, Warwick, and Stratford-Upon-Avon provide more of the stereotypical images of old England, and a particularly bright crown in the north is the Black Country, a shining beacon of history and heritage.If you wish to explore outside you can visit Liverpool which is just 90 miles via the M6, as is Manchester is just a couple of hours away, and even London is within reach form the M1.
