You can hire a vehicle online with our search tool, or at the on-site rental agencies, which include Sixt, National, Avis, Europcar, Budget, Hertz and Enterprise.

The station isn’t located in the airport, but Birmingham Airport provides a complimentary monorail service that runs between the airport and the station.

· There is a bus that services journeys into the city, and this is Route 97. It is slightly cheaper taking the bus than the train, as a bus ticket costs 1.90GBP ($3.30), but the journey takes three times longer than the train. There are airport transfers offered online, which allow you to book transport that suits you, if you’d prefer an alternative option.

· Taking a taxi into the city centre doesn’t take long, but is the most expensive way into the City. A taxi fare will run you 18-20GBP ($31-35), but can be a good option if you have a lot of luggage or are travelling in a group.
