Recommendations needed for car hire from Manchester Airport in November. Think I've used Enterprise before but their quote is over 300.00 GBP for 8 days. Green Motion is coming up cheap but never heard of them before.

Can work out very cheap, and I have never had a problem with them.

I have used Enterprise before and the cheapest rates seem to be for bookings made within a week or two of your visit.
I will be using them again, because other companies seen to have difficult terms and conditions

Read the reviews on Green Motion......they are terrible ! We used them twice from Stansted before we knew any better,had to wait over an hour the first time & the second time was also a disaster. Enterprise has always been reliable,but as you say not the most cost effective.

thanks Bobbeer....this is the site I found the Enterprise and Green Motion prices. I've seen something lately about Green Motion but couldn't remember if it was good or bad.

Just been on their website...... car rental very cheap BUT they take 1250.00 GBP deposit until car is returned.......and you have to pay by credit card. As I only have debit card I would have to go for zero excess policy which was nearly 100.00 on top of original hire price. I'm reluctant to do that as I already have a travel insurance policy. Back to the drawing board! Joyce

Went with Easirent in the end, cost me an arm and a leg because had to take zero excess because I didn't have a credit card. Arrived at Manchester about 1.35 pm and didn't get to drive away until 3.30 pm, which I think is unacceptable. Had to wait 20 minutes for pickup, then we waited for someone else, then tried to find them at another pick up point but left in the end for the office. Once there, the young man tried to persuade me to take an automatic instead of the manual I'd booked, saying it would be easier for me to drive (!), would cost me more of course. Finally got the car and the half tank of petrol I'd paid for was only quarter of a tank so another wait while they went to the other side of the airport to put more in. It has never taken me nearly 2 hours to collect a car before and I was in a hurry to get to my destination. Driving over the Pennines, now dark of course, tried the windscreen wipers and no screenwash ..........not happy having to drive for miles with smeared windscreen until I could get some water in. I think my car wasn't ready when I was due to pick it up and they tried to palm me off with the automatic but on the whole an unsatisfactory experience. Joyce
