Done a bit of research recently so....
I have used one like this for around 5 years without issue... cheap, no light board required and holds 3 normal bikes, it was only Â£40 when I bought it. (might have been Hollywood brand)

I do prefer roof mounted bikes and have recently switched to automaxi gutter style racks on thule bars, these seem a solid combination too, and you don't see them wobble about as you are driving
The most convienient is the cheap (Â£80 - 100) towbar bracket mounted ones (not the ones that clamp to the towball) they are basically 2 L bars you can keep in the boot, but you might need a light board too depending on your car ... and a towbar of course.
