9.2 ExcellentMar 3 2017
Insurance not included!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!

Cons: 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.

Easirent Is BadCons: Rude aggressive staff, looking hungrily for extra charges. Over an hour to get a car.
5.2 OkayNov 30 2016
Car was OK, 1 hour wait + tank half full at pickupCons: 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!!!

When to book a rental car in Bristol

Top tips for renting a car in Bristol

  • Discover everything Bristol has to offer with a rental car for your time in England’s harbor city. Nestled along the River Avon, the city has a stunning harbor to explore, as well as many other great attractions like the Bristol Aquarium and Ashton Gate Stadium, where people can enjoy a football game. Of course, there is also the surrounding beautiful English countryside just waiting to be discovered (preferably by car).
  • Another good reason to rent a car upon arrival, is the fact that Bristol Airport is a 40-minute car ride from the city center. Start your journey conveniently by picking up a car directly from the airport and traveling straight into the city. The airport features renowned car rental companies like Sixt, Europcar, or Avis, which are all located close to the terminal building (simply follow the signs to your respective rental desk).
  • In the UK, cars drive on the left side of the road and many have manual transmission, so bear that in mind and prepare accordingly. For travelers not used to driving on the other side of the road, it is recommended to rent a satnav with the car, as it will help show which direction to go. Following the drivers ahead of you can also help, especially when entering a roundabout (remember to go clockwise) or intersection.
  • During rush hour, Bristol’s streets can be congested, so try to avoid going out between 7 and 9 am and 5-8 pm, if possible. The M32 is an important highway in and around Bristol that can be heavily congested during rush hours. Also pay attention to speed limit signs (on the left side of the road), as speed limits change quite often inside the city from 20 mph zones to 30 mph, for instance.

  • Drivers who are not used to driving on the left or with a stick shifts may want to rent a slightly more expensive automatic car will help, as operating the stick shift with the left hand may add yet another layer of confusion. As Bristol is a bigger city and parking can be scarce, a compact car is a good option for driving inside the center, as it can squeeze into smaller parking spots.

  • In Bristol there are many 20-mph zones and the limit must be adhered to; in other residential areas, 30 mph is permitted. On two-lane country roads and on highways (or motorways, as they are known as in the UK), drivers can speed up to 70 mph.

  • Refilling a tank will cost about £1.25 per liter, which is about $6.40 per gallon. Cheaper gas stations are usually the ones from Tesco or Sainsbury’s. Also note that at most stations in the UK, paying before refilling the tank is not required, and payment is taken inside the gas station afterwards or at the machines.

  • Pay attention to the signs and line colors when parking on the street in Bristol. In the center, there are usually restrictions for all street parking, with double yellow lines signifying that parking is not permitted, single yellow lines indicating it is allowed only on certain days, or it is metered parking. Alternatively, there are parking lots like the Portwall Lane long stay car park or Wapping Wharf.
