Great value car

Great value car rental from Rhino. I use you for short rentals in Washington when on business and pleased to say your UK rentals are just as good. A little more expensive that the USA and your fuel is very expensive, but guess that is just England! No complaints from me, happily recommend.

Customer questions about Birmingham car hire

I am travelling to Birmingham at the end of January (27-29) and I am hoping to rent a car. I turn 25 on January 30 and wondering what fees I am going to be charged due to my age? I have held a full licence in both Ireland and USA for 6 years

Hello, It can vary depending on the agent available. Unfortunately all charge for extra insurance if under 25. This is payable as extra on arrival. Which car/agent were you looking at so that I can check and advise? We do offer a young driver discount to help out with the cost of extra insurance, hopefully that is useful also.

Hi, I am trying to book a car at Birmingham airport, the problem I have is sometimes your cars at not actually at the airport.

Hello, you can filter by car rental location to only display cars based in the airport terminal if this is preferable for you? You can see the filter in the left hand side of the results?
