Hi,

I Can't advise on which one is best,sorry,but what I would advise is that you book up direct with the car hire company,and not through any agents.

A Trip Advisor member from New Zealand that I have been helping has had problems booking through an agent for her trip here this summer,and has now changed to dealing with the car hire company directly.

At EMA they are all much of a muchness - the major brands are there as you would expect.

As Jas says - deal direct.

I seem to recall that at least one of the big names - Avis, I think - is based just off site, which means they meet you in the terminal and drive you to where the car is, which is fine so long as you're not in a desperate hurry. You can, however, return the car the the airport car park.

Lucy, with respect, saying "within the grounds" and linking us to a map that doesn't show where Avis is in respect to Arrivals doesn't really help very much. The "grounds" at an airport can be quite substantial.

I seem to recall that when my wife used Avis at East Mids she had to phone a number for someone to come and meet her and drive her to where her hire car was. Is this correct? Is that the procedure at East Midlands as regards Avis? This isn't trying to say that the procedure is bad, just that it would be helpful if we could clarify the situation.

Just a quick update on this: since my last post I've rented a couple of times from Enterprise, who have a desk in the terminal building, allow you to drop keys off in their letterbox if you return the car out of office hours and have always been friendly, helpful and have competitive rates. I had one small complaint about my last rental and it was dealt with very quickly and to my satisfaction. I can recommend them. I always go through the Enterprise online booking system, not through any sort of agency.
