Top tips for renting a car in Scotland

  • You can enjoy an epic adventure around Scotland in the comfort of your very own hire car, which is one of the best ways to explore the country at your own speed. Whilst the roads are good and most two-wheel drive cars will be sufficient, if you are heading into the Scottish Highlands then you might benefit from having a 4X4 to help you up and down the steep terrain. In the cities like Edinburgh, you won’t need more than a compact car to get around and see the sights though.
  • When you are driving your hire car in Scotland it’s important that you stick to the laws of the lanes. Drink-driving is taken very seriously in Scotland and there are large penalties for those that have more than 0.5 mg of alcohol per ml of blood when tested by police. You must also ensure that everyone in the car is wearing their seat belt at all times. Using a mobile phone whilst driving is also considered illegal, so ensure you have a proper hands-free kit. If you are travelling with children under 12 who are less than 135 cm tall, they will need to be in a suitable sized child seat.
  • You can help reduce the impact of car hire on the environment by choosing a car that is either hybrid, so it runs on both petrol and electricity, or one that is fully electric. This will help reduce the amount of emissions that are produced during your hire period. If you’re driving around one of the cities then you will find petrol stations and electric charge points a frequent occurrence. There are less stations of both types of fuel in the countryside, so it is best to ensure you are fully charged before departing for your journey and to have an idea of where your next stop is.
