Pros: Amazing value for money, £9 a day is very very affordable!
8.0 Excellent15 Jun 2017
A stiff holding amountCons: they held $3000 on card since I didn't take their insurance, which was extremely expensive. The $120 "drop-off" fee is a bit excessive.

Top tips for renting a car in Londonderry

  • Car hire in Londonderry is definitely the way to go in this city. It has so many tourist attractions dotted around it and in the town centre itself that you’ll want to have complete freedom of movement to go anywhere you want, when you want to. In the city itself, Guildhall is great example of Tudor Revival and Neo-Gothic architecture. It’s especially impressive when lit up at night. There’s also St Columb’s Cathedral within the city walls. Drive a little way outside of the city and you’ll come to the tranquil Ness Country Park where you can explore 55 acres of Northern Irish countryside along the Burntollet River.
  • You’ll arrive at Derry Airport if you’re coming in by air, and here you can pick up the hire car that you’ve booked in advance through KAYAK. Avis and Hertz are the main operators, and you’ll find their kiosks inside the main terminal building, on your left just before the exit of the arrivals hall. From there you will just have to take a short walk across the road to the car park where the vehicles are housed. From there it’s a 7-mile drive to the centre of Londonderry.
  • There are a number of schools and colleges in Londonderry, so be wary of youngsters on foot during the day, especially in the early afternoons on weekdays. The centre of the city can get very busy at night, with a large number of bars and music venues situated along Waterloo Street and Strand Road. The quayside area can also get busy, with a mixture of leisure-seekers and commercial traffic that you should factor into your Londonderry car hire plans. The same can be said of residential areas alongside, like Waterside.
  • Rush hour in Londonderry can slow down traffic quite a bit in the centre of town and on the main arterial roads running through the city, like Dungiven Road, especially where it meets the A2 at the large roundabout near the waterfront. It can start early because of the daily school run, so be prepared for it from around 07:30 up till 09:00. In the afternoons, peak rush hour is between 16:00 and 17:00. Another intersection to avoid at times like these is the roundabout that connects the A6 Glenshane Road with the A514 Crescent Link dual carriageway.

In that case opt for a compact MPV – the higher driving position and good all-round visibility will stand you in good stead.

There’s also a Eurospar on Station Road.

  • You will be able to find free parking in Londonderry no further from the city centre than the paid parking lots.

Alternatively, take public transport from the bus stops that are near them. The car parks that charge are usually around £1.80 for 2h.
