Car Hire at Birmingham Airport
Below are the car hire companies based at Birmingham Airport:
The hire car desks are located in the Millennium Link Building which joins terminals 1 and 2 together, so can be easily reached from either.
It is advisable to book in advance but if you decide upon arrival that you now need to hire a car then you can check with the companies for the best deal and book then. A couple of the companies do operate 24 hours so there are always one or two desks open
Where you pick up and drop off your car is only a short walk from both terminals. Alternatively, take the courtesy shuttle bus to the long Stay Car park No. 1. You can catch this bus outside both terminals. Other car hire companies such as Alamo, Sixt, Thrifty and Easycar are located offsite.
