Hello anybody there?
Hello anybody there?
I'm afraid the forums don't work quite like that! You must have noticed how infrequently the Bournemouth forum is used, about one post every two or three days. You might get a better response to your question if you tried the UK forum, but make clear what the question is, preferably in the title.
Or you could send a message direct to someone who has already answered a post on the Bournemouth forum.
What do you want to know?
By posting on the Bournemouth forum your post will automatically appear on the UK forum too which shows all the regional threads plus the UK threads.
You might however get more of a response if you said what it was you wanted to know rather than wait for everyone to respond.
An answer to my question of January 7th. Also there are some other unanswered questions from other posters. If anyone can help or offer some suggestions. Many thanks.
OK if you won't ask your question I will.
"Can someone recommend a car rental company from the above location (Bournemouth Airport). The prices from the various companies in situ are all over the place. First hand knowledge would be appreciated."
see its quite easy isn't it Box?
Your previous message went unnoticed, and though it is not far down the bournemouth page of threads it has long since disappeared off the UK threads, so it would have been useful if you just kept bumping it until someone spotted it. This is a volunteer forum and every little helps.
I can't see what you mean about the car hire info being all over the place. Its all gathered together on the Bournemouth Airport website where you would expect to find it, complete with telephone numbers and hotlinks to the companies within the airport.
Did you not manage to find it when you looked.
Let us know if the url was helpful. You will need to copy and paste it into your browser as Tripadvisor don't allow live links to external websites.You may have to accept that first hand knowledge may not be forthcoming, but all the information you need is available via the link above.
PS as for other unanswered questions, perhaps you could bump the ones you are talking about as a favouto whoever needs the info. That way someone might spot it on the UK forum and be able to help. Over to you Box.
purpleceltic. I didn't think that bumping of posts was allowed. Having said that when I posted "Is anyone there" I was doing as you suggested and sort of bumped my post. I wasn't aiming at the U.K. forum just the local Bournemouth forum. There are other questions asked but not answered that a local might have more knowledge about. I am familiar with the car hire companies at the airport but their prices vary considerably between companies. I was looking for someone who might have rented a car at a good price and might offer a recommendation.
You're best chance of getting an answer may well be the people who see this post on the UK forum who have visited Bournemouth. The thread will by default be seen on the UK forum as well as the Bournemouth forum, which seems surprisingly quiet, but may get busier as the easter/summer holiday season approaches.
There has never been any issue with bumping. Its done regularly by OPs or others trying to help get attention for the OP.
Let me try to help with the original question.
I haven't rented a car in Bournemouth. Both Europcar and National have been OK in the UK but probably not very cheap. Hertz has been OK in Germany and Greece but a bit rude in Italy. If you are in the right loyalty points scheme (maybe Airmiles ?) you can get a 'discount' on companies like Hertz.
