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 GoodJul 31 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).

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 ExcellentJul 17 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 MediocreAug 3 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.
8.0 ExcellentJul 13 2018
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.
2.0 MediocreNov 28 2017
Never found them. Had to get a last minute reservation with another company and it was much more money.
8.0 ExcellentJul 9 2017
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...

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.
  • Book your car hire at Belfast City Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
