Pros: Pickup and drop off were a breeze. They even drove us back to the hotel after drop off. The car was clean and ran great. Did some extensive driving and never had a problem.
Cons: A litlte bit of a hard sell for the additional insurance which I did not need.

Excellent but slow pick up
Pros: Car, cleanliness, ease of process. Overall car hire as it should be - no excess hard sell, just here’s your car and off you go. Return even simpler.
Cons: Delay in picking up due to 1 person only dealing with all Budget and Avis rentals. Not his fault - he was very efficient and friendly but policy decision to employ only 1 person to cover all pickups for 2 companies.

Solid choice- great customer service
Pros: Hertz 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!
Cons: Car was very basic model and smelt vaguely musty. Again insurance charges were unexpected expense. (2x estimated).

Top tips for hiring a car in Belfast

  • Escape the congested public transportation system and pricey taxi fares in Belfast by renting a car, which is also the best option for getting to know this city. A car works wonders for travelers looking to explore some of Northern Ireland's most scenic routes and iconic destinations, including Dunluce Castle, UNESCO World Heritage site Giant's Causeway, and Castle Ward, which is the filming location of Winterfell in Game of Thrones.
  • All the big car hire agencies can be found at Belfast International Airport (BFS), which is only 18 miles northwest of the city center. All the car hire desks are located in the domestic arrivals hall, which is on the lower floor of the airport's passenger terminal. The smaller George Best Belfast City Airport (BHD) is only 3 miles from the city center, and its car hire counters can be found in the Arrivals Hall.
  • The main rule about driving in the United Kingdom is that traffic runs on the left-hand side of the road. As a small city, Belfast is relatively easy to drive around. If you cross the border into the Republic of Ireland, remember currency changes from the pound to the euro, and kilometers will be used instead of miles.
  • Belfast roads can experience quite a bit of traffic congestion, so you may want to avoid driving during morning rush hour (especially if you're driving into the city), between 6:30 and 9:30 a.m., and also during the evening rush hour, from 4 to 7 p.m. (if you're driving out of the city). The M2/Nelson Street/York Link junction tends to be the most congested road, but traffic also builds up on the A1/M1 in the morning and before junction 3 on the M1 in the evening. Roads in Northern Ireland are toll-free.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Belfast for £11 or less
  • Book your car hire in Belfast at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Belfast are around 2% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Economy car hires in Belfast are around 50% cheaper than other car types, on average
