Top tips for renting a car at Bristol Airport

  • Bristol Airport (BRS) serves Bristol city and is often busy with business travellers. This means public transport to the city is often crowded, especially during rush-hour periods, and you may have to wait in long queues to purchase tickets. Car hire at Bristol Airport cuts back on your travel time by allowing you to move straight from the terminal to your rental counter to pick up your car. Perfect if you are rushing to make an important meeting or if you want to get on the road as soon as you arrive.
  • Bristol Airport is situated just off the A38, which takes you north into Bristol city, just a 15min drive away. This makes car hires at Bristol Airport a convenient option if you want to travel by road. A car hire also gives you access to many of the scenic, rural areas that are located nearby. For example, if you drive south on the A38, you can join the A368, which connects with Mendip Hills National Park. You can also drive west along the A368 to reach the many seaside areas along the southwest coast, such as Weston-Super-Mare and Burnham-on-Sea. Perfect if you’re travelling to Bristol on a family vacation and want to take a drive out to the beach.
  • If you plan to do a lot of driving in Bristol city centre, you will probably find yourself navigating heavy traffic. Car hire at Bristol Airport has some great fuel-efficient and low emissions options that are ideal for this. For example, there is a Green Motion car hire branch just a shuttle ride away from BRS. Green Motion offers a range of reduced-emissions and electric vehicles, which are great for short journeys. You can also hire an electric car from Enterprise when you hire with Bristol Airport.
  • Most of the car hire companies available at BRS are open during the weekdays but may be closed or run a reduced service in the evenings or at weekends. It is important to be aware that some companies, such as Enterprise and Hertz, require vehicles to be returned during business hours. To enjoy the largest choice of car rental services available, it is a good idea to collect and return your vehicle during the weekdays as most branches are open during this time.

Cons:

Whenever I have pre booked previously, basic insurance has always been included. I was told this had recently changed and was no longer the case. Disappointed that my pre booked price was not what I paid in the end! Had to leave earlier than anticipated to avoid paying two days insurance, instead of one. You need to spell this out when people are booking!

Pros:

Pickup in Bristol was excellent. Very friendly staff; provided an extremely nice car and the price and value were great. Car was a hybrid so hardly even took gas.

Cons:

LHR is pretty closed down so it was kind of hard to find my way from the drop off rental location to the airport hotel.

Avis staff were great. Very efficient, no queues, immediate drop off. Car was in great condition. Main problem was with booking through the brokers kayak and Qeeq. I booked a mid sized SUV on the broker site because I have 3 kids to fit across the back with car seats. When I arrived at the desk, they had a VW Golf for me. I don’t blame Avis: this is the class of vehicle that was booked by the broker. In my opinion that was false advertising by the broker. I had to upgrade at the desk, luckily they had a bigger vehicle. I would book direct with Avis next time and cut out the cowboy broker

We had to wait for a long time to have the gentleman who man's the rental station at the hotel near Bristol airport to come in, and left almost an HOUR after we got to the hotel! Car tank was only HALF full. I was charged an extra 30 POUNDS for gas that was not disclosed to me at Kayak rental PLUS another amount for liability insurance that the gentleman at counter said was required by law. I had purchased Kayak insurance already and was surprised that I had to pay this extra. And now there a further $68 charge on my credit card account from Easirent for what, I have no idea!!!

I booked this online and was given a final price for the rental agreement. However, when I turned up at the office they insisted that CDW insurance was not included and I had to pay extra. I find this unacceptable, how can you agree to rent a car to someone without insurance?? I rent many car and I have never come across this before. It is always included. Furthermore, I have read read through the agreement and I can see no reference that this insurance is not included, in fact, the rental policy is says that it is included!!!

I couldn’t get the car because of the requirement for some other kind of insurance than excess insurance. I wasted two hours waiting to try to be served because the woman in front of me was also having a terrible experience (ended up paying 500 to get a car) and then the ancient computer system went down. So then I had to spend a few hours travelling by bus, train and taxi to my destination. 100% terrible.

COMPLETE SCAM / CON / DAYLIGHT ROBBERY 1) No contact phone# on reservation voucher or confirmation email. 2) airport shuttle driver said he heard people complain Easirent doesn't answer phone, don't send shuttle for pickup. Told us how to walk the 15 mins out of the airport, across a busy main road to get to them. 3) Looked up their phone number on Google & phoned their customer service. Pressed the option in the menu & waited several minutes while it rang & rang then disconnected. Started walking to their location. Found a number for the location, tried to phone a couple more times while we walked. Same thing - no answer, then hung up. 4) Got there to find office is a shipping container. After waiting for the only employee to finish with other customers I asked him how we're supposed to summon a shuttle if they don't answer the phone. He said there hasn't been a shuttle for a couple of years! He also said the phone isn't working!! 5). Asked for passport, then airline ticket stubs. Luckily I had kept them & showed to him. Finally he told me an amount I had to pay. It didn't seem right to me so I opened my rental voucher. He was trying to charge me almost double what I had booked it for, saying there was collision waiver added which was required by law. That is an absolute lie. I asked to see where in writing it said that & also asked to see their contact. He couldn't / wouldn't produce either. I walked out. Never again. COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME & ENERGY. I've since found that I had another bad experience with that company the year before & had vowed never to use them again but had forgotten!

Loved that I got a super great car to drive around, great staff to deal with (even with me a little emotional picking the car up--lost my bank card!) But we dealt with it well,, and away I went for the weekend :) Car was clean, tidy very easy and simple to drive. Staff were polite and made it very easy to do, out and back in again.

Cons:

That I couldnt pay the deposit with cash. But that's okay, it got sorted

I was "forced" to purchase LDW insurance even though I had CDW from my home country. That's made a big difference - 200 GBP
