Be sure to put all toiletries, including toothpaste, creams, gels into hold luggage to get through security more quickly. Be sure to check all of your insurance is up to date. Whenever possible, hire your car at least a week ahead of travelling, so that all of your booking details are available online, and do remember to check you have all necessary documents available. I keep all of my documents and printouts together in an A4 wallet, so everything is easily accessible.

It is not a glamorous airport but it seems to operate very efficiently. (which is more than you can say for security at Bristol airport)

Remember to go to the Hertz desk before leaving the airport building. NI is very easy to drive in for an English person. You drive on the left and the roads are fairly quiet. You are in the countryside within 2 minutes of leaving the airport. We just hired a car for 1 day, and this was no problem as the office is open for long hours. The child booster seat was of very good quality compared to other's we have had with other car rental companies in other countries. We can recommend a trip to the Giant's Causeway and rope bridge, both of which you can easily visit in one day.

Loads to see and do in Ireland. A drive around lake Erne was an added bonus as was Lake Melvin. Bellick Pottery is worth a mornings visit, especially the scenic drive to get there. Walks along the beach at Bundoran and the brilliant cliff walk way is definitely worth visiting. Beautiful views of the Atlantic and interesting rock formations along the way. Look out for the fairy bridges in the rocks! Titanic Belfast was excellent. You could spend all day there as so much to read and see. Signage quite poor so work out how to get there beforehand!

Travelling to Derry which is a beautiful city with a rich history very visible well worth a walking tour. Damaged baggage and no one around to report to.

- Read the Ts&Cs carefully on care hire rental agreements. Easy to be caught out by missing one and incur extra fees. - Turn up in good time at the airport. Lengthy queues at security have seen many people miss flights recently. - For car hire, book excess insurance via a third party for around £2 per day, save on the high prices they charge at the desk to avoid a massive excess for even a tiny scratch. - For car hire, check the car very carefully when you collect. Some hot cars are covered in small scratches. If they’re not all noted down, they could blame you for one!

Leave plenty of time to get through security. People are pleasant and friendly. As at many airports theu are rebuilding so it’s a bit hard to navigate departures. Would be nice if they had more Ulster products on sale. Generally clean all round. A nice airport to fly to and from

Make sure you book car hire at the correct airport, some firms are vague. Visit the Titanic experience. Get there early and you will find ample car parking under the building. Visit the Giants causeway . to avoid car parking charges on the site ,use the Free Park and Ride in Bushmills. Free car parking + reduced entry fee if you use the bus. If you like to try Street Food go to St.Georges Market Fri.Sat.Sun. Use the city tour bus to hop on and off to see different things. The pass is valid for 2 days.

Always give yourself plenty of time. Have all cabin luggage ready in advance eg., liquids, creams etc.. Ensure you have printed out your boarding passes and have adequate ID to hand. Book car rental well in advance for cheaper rates - beware of the extras! Travel as light as possible, minimum baggage. Take along some reading in case of delays.

Travel, Relax and Explore! During my long holiday in Ireland, I travelled to the western part too- taking in the breath taking views and beauty of Western Ireland in a place call Geevagh, Co Sligo. On top of this I drove to the most breathtakingly beautiful, rugged place to surf- Easkey. Although I didn't go surfing, I sat in my car watching the mesmerising waves , hit against the rocks, whilst surfers were standing upright and taking on the waves! I would definitely explore more of this country further when I return again! Other highlights recommended- day wandering around Sligo town as well as a lovely, lunch amd coffee in the village of Boyle, County Roscommon.
