I often want to you return early with my rental car. I am often too early to check in at the airport because of this. There are a few hotels across from the airport where you can relax with lunch and a drink.

When visiting a new Green Motion outlet, mark a GPS position or obtain a map to ensure you have an easy return to drop off the car on the way back as the rental office may not be at the airport.

Booked a Ford Mondeo diesel (or similar) for the big boot space and economical drive to drop my family with loads of luggages and two pushchairs to Luton airport but on collection i was given a Peugeot 2008 petrol. They said its the same group car (on their website) but its about 25” Shorter and has a small boot space. They ddidnt offer me anything larger for the same price only is I pay double the price what I already paid. Ended up driving 100 miles with fully packed boot and luggages in the laps. The company should reconsider what car in what group because it was very disspointing and not fit for the purpose I rented the car.

Full to full petrol. Be nice to the people you meet and they’ll probably be nice to you. Ignore the sat nav until you’re really lost, you might end up somewhere fun.

Birmingham Airport was excellent. Good customer service and it only took me 20 minutes from walking off the plane to go through immigration, collect my bags and clear customs.

It seems there is always a wait to get off the plane when you land at Birmingham airport. It's a small airport but other than the wait when landing I have had no problems

Road works and diverted footpaths made walking between car park and terminal, with luggage , more difficult. No passing places for passengers travelling in opposite direction.

1. Do not keep all your IDs together. 2. Send a copy of your documents to your email 3. Always carry some extra cash, do not rely only on cashless operations. 4. If you are travelling from town to town, rent a car. If you are staying in town for more than a day, return car. It is easier to take a train or a bus than to find parking space in the city center. You can always rent again. 5. Do not hesitate to ask locals for directions or best place to go. Guides will not show you true side of the place you go to. 6. Finally. Do not over plan. Be spontaneous. It is always better to be surprised in a good way than nervously check your watch all the time.

My advice is really basic but very imoirtant in these dangerous times, Be early, have plenty of time for a coffee or a mooch around the shops.. Understand that the people working hav everybodies safety as thei paramount concern so try to make it as seamkess as possible.. Give a hand or sttike up a conversation with someone as it cists nothing to be nice, but also jnow when to shut up as sime people may be nervous

Go to Warwick Castle, Stratford upon Avon. If you are going into Birmingham go into the Library - its a fantastic building. For shopping go to the Bullring / Selfridges . Make sure you visit a good curry house (Raja Monkey, Hall Green or somewhere on Stoney Lane in Sparkbrooke (Adils) ) and try a family naan Enjoy

Lots of complicated motorway junctions so if you are not familiar with the area, it is a good idea to have a sat-nav. Also plan to stop off at a garage with a car wash just prior to returning your vehicle (took us 5 attempts to find one) since the car needs to be returned clean.

Birmingham is a great shopping city, especially the bullring which has a selfridges department store and many other high street stores. I would recommend going to Cadbury world and seeing how the chocolate is made now and in the past.
