Getting to Birmingham Mini Guide

You can get to Birmingham from the north or the south of the UK by using the motorway network, hiring a car in UK from Birmingham is a great place to start. From the East take the M6, or the M1, and the M6 or M42 from the north east. The M42 goes into Birmingham from the south east (or the M40) and southwest, and if you’re coming from the south west via Bristol you can alternatively take the M5. The M6 arrives in Birmingham from the north west bringing visitors from Manchester and beyond.

Birmingham International airport is situated about 10 kilometres outside of the city at Solihull and it has many domestic and international flights.  Car Rental is an excellent option to avoid pricey tax fares.
Known for a mass of complicated road systems, but also for being one of the most accessible cities in Europe, car hire in Birmingham makes sense. Birmingham may be a hub for transport today but you can often save time by driving in this busy city.
