KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Dundee

  • Hire a car and discover everything Dundee has to offer with the flexibility to choose when, where and how you want to do it. Car hire in Dundee gives you the option to explore the areas surrounding the city while you’re there. Sites like Powrie Castle and Broughty Ferry beach are only a short drive away. You can even take the time to travel further afield. Edinburgh and Aberdeen are reachable in approximately 1h 30min and you get to take in the unforgettable Scottish countryside on the way.
  • There are multiple car hire firms located in and around the centre of Dundee. Arnold Clark, Enterprise and Hertz all house an extensive collection of quality vehicles to choose from and you’ll be on the road in no time. If you’re coming from Dundee airport, companies can provide a shuttle service to their site in the city. This takes around 15min and you can pick up your Dundee car hire from there.
  • Dundee is a relatively small town with roads that can be narrow and a little tricky to navigate. There is the option to add a sat nav to your booking to help guide you through the one-way systems and avoid the central pedestrian zone. That being said, roads in Dundee are generally quieter than larger cities like Glasgow or Edinburgh. Being a coastal city, the wind can be strong (especially on the Tay Road Bridge) and the weather unpredictable, which is something to bear in mind when choosing your car hire in Dundee.
  • Thankfully, Dundee boasts some of the fastest moving traffic in the UK during rush hour, yet you still may want to avoid Kingsway during peak periods of 8:00–9:00 and 17:00–18:00. The winter season is usually cold and often brings ice and heavy snow to the roads around Dundee. Outside the city centre and up in the highlands can be particularly hazardous thanks to steep hills and irregular use.
  • Book your rental car in Dundee at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Dundee are around 37% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Dundee

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Dundee?

    If you plan on driving in and around the city, a compact economy vehicle will suit the narrow streets and city traffic while being lighter on fuel. For adventures further afield with the family in tow, a sturdy 4x4 could be better for comfort and safety, especially in wet weather and snow. On business trips, opt for a sleek saloon.

  • What’s the speed limit in Dundee?

    Certain areas in Dundee, such as The Glens and Douglas, are strict 20mph zones, so watch out for signs when you’re driving in the centre to avoid an unwelcome fine. You’ll more than likely head down Kingsway at some point during your visit, which has a 40mph limit and speed cameras to watch out for. The national limit on motorways and dual carriageways is 70mph, although you’ll have to keep an eye out for average speed checks, which are common throughout Scotland.

  • Where are the best places to park in Dundee?

    The centre of Dundee is home to plenty of multi-storey car parks, including Discovery Quay Car Park next to the V&A museum and Nethergate opposite the train station. There are around 530 on-street parking spots and charging hours are from 8:00–20:00, Monday to Sunday, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to find a spot no matter when you’re visiting. The cost varies between locations, but you can expect to pay around £3 per hour in the city centre.

  • How much is gas price in Dundee?

    The average gas price in Dundee is ₪25.55 per gallon over the past 30 days. Filling up a gas tank costs between ₪307 and ₪409, depending on the car size.

Our original car, Peugeot 2008 was mechanically faulty. The clutch broke and caused the car the inability to move 15/20 minutes after picking up the vehicle. Lots of smoke etc. We were on a motorway at the time, No verge so a dangerous area to stop, we called recovery and after an hour a tow truck was sent, We returned to our pick point and eventually were given a new vehicle, We are from overseas. This did cause some distress to me ( the driver). Also having to pay £65 to return the car to a different location a half hour away was I thought an unnecessary expense.

I booked the car through your site weeks ago. When I got there after traveling all day, they had no cars! The agent said that Kayak does not communicate with them regarding availability. This is unconscionable. My family and I were stranded in the middle of the City with all of our luggage. You will be hearing more. Fix your business model for goodness sake otherwise you will fail. This behavior is appalling. Kayak again? Hell no!
