Service was very friendly, location was easy to find and the car was as described. Could have been a little quicker off the mark when we came to drop it back, but they were professional throughout.

May 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Pickup service was excellent. Car great. Mileage very good.

Cons:

Hertz rep explained that because Hertz is the only rental agency at LGW North, the airport authorities will not allow more rental return signage. Follow the specific instruction given by the Sofitel porters in the layby.

KAYAK

Pros:

The gentleman who I gave the car to was very helpful. He helped order me a taxi after and was very nice.

Cons:

There wasn't anywhere to park the car. They didn't have a parking lot or any designated places for returning cars. It was very frustrating. I didn't like that even though I prepaid for a full tank of gas, I didn't get any money back when I returned it more than half full. Felt a little cheated there.

Jul. 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Vehicle was as specified - not a substitute - which was important as we would not have coped with a different vehicle or smaller minivan. Most of the large Car Rental chains do not offer the larger minivans (Galaxy, Sharan, Alhambra) and visitors from USA will be surprirzed at how relatively small a UK minivan is as offer by the standard chains.

Cons:

Off Airport locations means calling the hotel or Easirent as no shuttle exists. Large credit card down payments and insurance options a surprise. Deposit for potentially no returning with a full tank a surprise.

Top tips for renting a car in Cardiff

  • The expansive countryside and beautiful views are some of the main attractions that Cardiff and Wales offer to visitors. Undeniably, driving offers one of the best ways to enjoy both of those attractions. It is highly recommended that visitors to Cardiff rent a car with this in mind so that they, too, can take the chance to explore the Welsh landscape for themselves.
  • For travelers landing at Cardiff Airport, the airport’s rental car counters are located both in the main terminal’s Arrivals Hall and just outside in the main parking lot.
  • Drivers should note that in Cardiff, and in Wales in general, signaling to other drivers via waves and nods is expected on the road. This is partly because of the small town vibe and culture, but there is also just a local emphasis on being polite. So, when you encounter another car on a narrow road, expect that you may have to stop to let them pass -- and both parties are expected to wave and acknowledge each other.
  • Cardiff has a moderate amount of rush hour traffic during the work week, with the morning rush hour typically running from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. As for the afternoon and evening rush hour period, it usually lasts starts up at around 4:00 p.m. and slows down at around 6:00 p.m. Two of the roads that are hit hardest by congestion during rush hour are St Mary Street and the A4161. Drivers are advised to skirt around both, if possible, during peak traffic hours.
