Friendly staff and new car in excellent condition
2.0 Mediocre10 Jul 2022
I got a flat tire while driving in the countryside of Ireland. There wasn't a spare tire in the car. I had to call a tow truck which towed me to the nearest town where I had to wait over night until the shop opened up. When I returned the car I tried to ask for a refund for the new tire I had to buy and the man told me it was my fault the tire blew and that because I didn't buy extra insurance the cost of the tire was my responsibility. Be careful when renting from Budget. It's not a car rental agency so much as it is a used car lot. Once you've left with their car they stop providing any service unless its to take more of your money when you return it.

Fuel wasn’t at full at pick up despite us having to bring it back full. 48 hours after we returned the hire car and we still haven’t got our deposit back.

Sixt would not honor my Kayak reservation, they refused to rent a car to me. They said they couldn’t because I was over 75. But they knew my age when they made the reservation. It was a horrible experience. We planned a two week driving trip. They should have not made the reservation. And when I was at the counter, they should have found a way to get me a car. I’m very disappointed with Kayak and Sixt for doing that to me. I was able to find a Walk-Up rental from Enterprise which was hundreds of dollars more expensive than my Kayak reservation. I feel that Kayak and/or Sixt should compensate me for my loss.
10.0 Excellent12 Jul 2022
Our experience with Sixt was the best. We always have low expectations when it comes to car rentals from previous experiences. Everything was professionally handled, took very little time, the car was great, and check-in and out were seamless. Thank you for a great experience!

Our £200 deposit still has not been refunded. We delivered the car back between 16:00 and 17:00 on the 20th April and were told it would be refunded later that evening. We phoned this morning asking when it was completed and told it hadn’t happened yet. It’s now 15:06 on the 21st and it’s still not appeared?
8.4 Excellent17 Jul 2019
Super friendly staff!They texted the wrong number or the phone lines were down so I couldn’t get ahold of them. Navigating back to their shop was a bit tough for someone like me unfamiliar with the area so that was stressful.
2.0 Mediocre3 Aug 2018
Feel ripped offExtra unexpected $20 “foreign fee” not included in my original quote but i was forced to agree to it at pick up. Used tampon under driver seat. Impossible to pull seat far enough up for comfort. Employees unable to give a map or simple directions in Belfast. Hard sell on the extra insurance. No thanks.

Nice Car, Some ChallengesThe car was great and the staff was wonderful. They were kind and helpful.The location is off site from the airport (Belfast City) and you have to call for pick up (which is a challenge when traveling abroad!). Additionally, there was a £20 charge for traveling to the Republic of Ireland that was not very clear I would be charged when I booked.

Never found them. Had to get a last minute reservation with another company and it was much more money.

Need to improve on the communication about pick-up site.Great car! Friendly staff.It was more expensive than I hoped, and the pick-up location was not very convenient to the Belfast airport. It took some minutes ) to call the company (which is costly for international calling...was on hold a bit), find out how/where to get the shuttle to the off-site pick-up location, and get the car. I realize this makes the rental a bit cheaper, but some better communication, maybe...

Had vehicle booked for pickup at 10 am , arrived at 11am, and they had given vehicle away, advised they only hold for 30 mins of pickup time, and were very rude and not helpful, then they finally found another vehicle (basically same one) and wanted us to pay an additional 800 british pound sterling on top of rental agreement. So we went to enterprise and received a vehicle from them I would never recommend this Company
7.6 Good31 Jul 2018
Solid choice- great customer serviceHertz rental in UK (I’m from USA) was reasonably convenient- I accidentally booked from wrong Airport. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to pick up at the other airport- though they tried! They helpfully delayed pickup. I should have investigated insurance more thoroughly so that added unexpected costs. Still a good cake given unlimited mileage!Car was very basic model and smelt vaguely musty. Again insurance charges were unexpected expense. (2x estimated).

When I arrived they asked for £1200 Excess cover. This is on top of the £600 I was going to pay for the car. I did not use AVIS in the end

Top tips for hiring a car at Belfast City Airport

  • Car hire at Belfast City Airport (BHD) offers a great opportunity to tour along the Co Down coastal and lake route, south-east of the airport, or to travel onward to Dublin or even travel north to the celebrated Co Antrim coast. Car hire is definitely the easiest option, allowing you to pop into the many small villages, hidden coves, and tourist amenities all along the Northern Ireland coastline. Using local transport would take much longer and only bring you to major destination points rather than the multiple stopover spots available in this dramatic part of Ireland.
  • Belfast City Airport (BHD) is also known as George Best Airport, named after the famous footballer from the city. It’s one of two airports in Belfast, the other being Belfast International Airport (BFS). Car hire at Belfast City Airport is centred around the car hire desks in the main airport terminal and the airport campus is connected by road to the city centre along the A2, a major regional route that links in seamlessly with motorways and other major roads.
  • Returning your car to Belfast City Airport is very straightforward. On approach to the airport you will start to see signs for the car rental parking garages. Follow these and park your car in the designated area, remove all your personal belongings and complete your paperwork at the car hire desk. It’s advised to refuel your car before bringing it back if you want to save on the cost of refuelling.
  • The majority of car hire companies operate between 09:00 to 23:00 seven days a week. Not all companies operate a drop-box system at the airport so enquire with your preferred company if you think you will be arriving out of those hours. There aren’t very many early morning flights from Belfast City Airport so the demand for out-of-hours cover is less than in some airports.
