Default Bikes on a car

We want to start using our 2 bikes from home , does anyone have any experience with cycle carriers , looking at either roof or boot , tow bar is too expensive . We would have to take them to the van and back each time and take them from the van to the place where we are riding.Are there any do's and don'ts ? Anything I should definitely be avoiding ? Also going to get a fold up bike for the wife , does anyone have any experience of these ? I've been looking at Thule roof bars , these will cost just over 200 which is do-able but would like it cheaper but need to have peace of mind that bikes aren't gonna come off.

Make sure that the number plate is not obscured when the carrier is fitted and loaded with bicycles.
