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.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.

Insurance not included!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!

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

The car was fineThere was a lot of confusion as to booking on an American site. They don’t take the insurance so that money was wasted! You should know that! Very poor communication between kayak and the UK rentals

At pick up the agent was pushing the insurance unsuccessfully, but drop-off was quick and easy and friendly. Good rental.

Easy peasyEase of pick up at Exeter Airport (though this is a tiny airport so I was expecting this). We had a great Mini 500. I have my own excess policy so can dodge those charges. Drop off in Bristol was equally smooth.The drop off fee to a different location is beyond all logistical costs so seems excessive. To counter we insured only one driver as the additional was also v expensive considering I'm covering all excess.

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

Epic driving weekend in a nice Clio :)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.That I couldnt pay the deposit with cash. But that's okay, it got sorted

The company had no presence at the airport. Had great difficulty finding their office. The various add-ons to the supposedly "low price" made their price not competitive. Cancelled the car and went elsewhere.

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!

The location is quite poorly signposted and difficult to find on foot or by car. However it is very close to the airport (the closes I think, and reachable on foot if you don't have loads of luggage). They did want 2 forms of paper ID that wasn't mentioned in the cover email and which I could've provided give that I was away from home when I made the booking, and it wasn't mentioned before I made the reservation. That was quite stressful - I hire cars a lot and have never been asked to provide anything more than licence, credit card and DVLA check. Overall the place is quite basic and tatty, but that is reflected in the price. The car I had was basic but it was also really cheap, which was what I was looking for. Basically if you are on a budget, this is a good pick but read *everything* before you set off.

Car was OK, 1 hour wait + tank half full at pickupWe 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!!!

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.
