Birkenhead Guide


Birkenhead is situated along the River Mersey in Liverpool and is famous for Hamilton Square, Mersey Ferries and not forgetting Tranmere Rovers F.C.

Surrounding the waterfront is the beautiful heritage trail. Enjoy stunning views of the Liver Buildings across the river. Kids can learn about transport history while enjoying rides on the trams or visiting Egerton Bridge and the Shore Road Pump House. There are also historic warships to be toured. For splendid views climb St Mary's Tower next to Birkenhead's 850-year-old Priory.

The Birkenhead dock area and Hamilton Quarter have been rejuvenated with many tourist innovations. Late Georgian and early Victorian architecture can be discovered in Hamilton Square. The relics of a 12th century Benedictine monastery are real gems and worth exploring.

Birkenhead has the largest under-cover market in England and two of the best shopping centres. There is a huge selection of restaurants from 'eateries' to international cuisine. Birkenhead Park is a great place for those who love running and cycling and as it contains a lake it became popular for fishing. Enjoy a quick game of cricket, football or tennis.

From Museums to funfairs the Merseyside region caters for many tastes. Just across the Mersey River is Liverpool. Visit Albert Dock, home to the Tate Liverpool and Merseyside Maritime Museum, as well as dozens of fashionable shops, restaurants and pubs. Knowsley Safari Park is a popular attraction in Liverpool. Experience the Safari Drive, Reptile house, Sea Lion and Parrot shows. There is even a Children's Farm where you can dtroke and handle the animals.

Trains leave from Birkenhead North Station to London Euston Station every half hour (duration 3.5 hours). Most routes go via Liverpool Lime Street Station. Liverpool Airport is within 13 km of Birkenhead.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

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.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?
