No British city lies a greater distance from a coastline than Coventry, England's ninth-biggest city. Extensive WWII bombing damage may appear to have eliminated much of this West Midland city's historic landmarks, but remnants of Coventry's city walls still stand. Coventry is an easy 30km drive southeast of Birmingham and just over 150kms northwest of London.
As Coventry's own airport currently has no scheduled flights, most air passengers arrive at the much larger Birmingham International Airport, which is actually nearer to Coventry than Birmingham. The journey from Birmingham to Coventry takes under 30 minutes by rail, bus or car rental in Coventry. Coventry is conveniently situated on Virgin's main rail line between London and Birmingham.
Few places close to Coventry present as many opportunities to compare car hire as nearby Birmingham International Airport's Millennium Link Building, where no fewer than half a dozen hire car companies are represented. Coventry's convenient location in the middle of both the United Kingdom and its motorway network means motorists can easily travel to virtually anywhere in the country.
The most scenic of the many roads leading to Coventry may well be the Kenilworth Road exit off the A46. This wide road lined with trees takes motorists past a relaxing park called Abbey Fields before entering Coventry. Coventry's other major thoroughfares are the M6 north of the city and the A45 leading to London.
Car hire in Coventry makes it easy to travel the brief distance to the nearby community of Baginton, home to the Midland Air Museum and a partial reconstruction of the ancient Lunt Roman Fort. Many more ancient attractions lie within another nearby community, Warwick, southwest of Coventry and best known for its namesake castle.
Coventry's typical central English climate features cold and wet winters with occasional frost, crisp clear springs and a fair amount of summer sunshine. Coventry's rainiest months are chilly December, when the temperature often falls below freezing, and humid August, when temperatures can peak as high as 25°C. Summer may be Coventry's hottest and busiest season, but the Christmas Lights Switch On event also attracts quite a few visitors in the middle of November.

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
