Why hire a car at Glasgow?

Hiring car makes your life easier, especially if you’re exploring rural Scotland. It may be a little pricey compared to other transport choices (trains, buses, taxis etc.) but it’s the option if you need flexibility! And remember you’re paying one-off for the car, rather than per person so if you’re travelling in a big group, it might be a great way to even out the cost and maybe even save money. Simply jump in your rental car and off you go.

You’ll have the freedom to explore the local area or even trek further up into Scotland, knowing that you’re driving a trusted vehicle from one of the top car hire providers in the business.

And of course, a few handy tips!

  • Book as early as you can: The more in advance you can book, the more money you’ll save! Use the Car Hire Centre gadget above to get a quote and find the cheapest rates for your journey.
  • Check, Check and then Check again!: Once you pick up the keys to your vehicle, check over it for any damage. Take note of any slight scratches, body paint issues/ irregularities, seat quality (like any potential smudges or cigarette marks). Be sure to take pictures and ensure the rental staff write down the pre-existing damge (if it isn’t already) so you can avoid being charged for someone else’s damage when you return it.
  • Get to know your vehicle: Be sure to familiarise yourself with the car before you leave the car hire centre. Check you’re up-to-date on UK driving laws and if anything’s in a different place – such as Fiat 500s and KAs have a much higher gear stick to what you might be used to!
  • Opt for a Sat-Nav: Especially if you don’t know the area and don’t want to get charged for all that data on your phone!
