car hire in Lisburn and health coverage

Hi all , anyone tell me were to hire a car for a week or so in town,( Sorry, City,)as I am going home 29th June to tour N.Ire., any help would be appreciated, thanks Fraser. Also is a pensioner covered for medical if they are receiving a British Pension while visiting N.Ireland from Canada? Maybe you know Jim.

Re: car hire in Lisburn and health coverage

Hi Fraser,

Hope you don't think me a know it all, I have already asked the same questions. As pensioners we are no longer covered by the U.K. health system as of Mar.2004. I have taken out yearly coverage at a cost of $213 (Can.) through the McLennan Groupand that covers both of us.As you know we live close to the U.S.border and make almost weekly visits over there,so it makes it worth while. I dont know of a car hire in the "City", but I do get a great deal at the Airport from a company called Dan Dooley..... ask for Heather and mention my has worked for others.
Incidentally we will be home at the same time, we have rented a house in Portrush.
