Top tips for renting a car in Aberdeen

  • There is hardly a better way to explore the eastern coastline of Scotland and all the attractions of Aberdeen – such as the Maritime Museum or the Art Gallery – or the inner Scottish countryside than by renting a car. Benefit from the flexibility and a sense of freedom when visiting the coastal city when you get your own hire car.
  • Aberdeen Airport is located about six and a half miles from the heart of Aberdeen and travelers can rent a car directly from there to be in the city in about twenty minutes. There are various onsite car hire agencies of internationally renowned companies like Avis, Hertz, and Europcar, to name a few.
  • In Aberdeen, like the rest of the UK, cars drive on the left side of the road, plus the steering wheel is on the right-hand side of the car. Travelers who are not used to this should consider renting a GPS system with the car, as it makes it easier to navigate on the other side of the road. Remember to enter roundabouts clockwise and be extra attentive at intersections.
  • Peak times in Aberdeen are usually around 6-9 am and 4-7 pm in Aberdeen during the week, and traffic can increase dramatically with waiting hours sometimes as long as 1 hour. Try to avoid these times for driving if possible and find ways through little alleys and streets rather than bit arterial roads like the A96, for instance.
  • Book your rental car in Aberdeen at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

What type of car is recommended for driving in Aberdeen?

As Aberdeen is located in the north, it is wise to rent a 4-wheel-drive car, especially when visiting during the winter. Parking and traffic can be challenging in the city, so opt for a smaller car if possible, as it can fit into more parking spaces and will also need less petrol – which can get pretty expensive in Europe and the UK.

What's the speed limit in Aberdeen?

Even though the rest of European countries uses the metric system, in the UK the imperial system prevails to some extent and speed limits are given in miles per hour. Bear in mind that the posted signs are on the left side of the road. General regulations permit 30 mph in residential areas, but it goes down to 20 mph around schools. 50 mph is permitted on rural roads and up to 70 mph on freeways (called motorways in the UK and usually marked with an “M”).

How are gas prices in Aberdeen?

Although the UK never fully adopted the metric system, petrol is measured in liters, so bear that in mind when refilling the tank and checking prices. The average price for one liter of petrol is around £1.20 ($1.52, which is $6.08 per gallon). Payment can be done by cash or card at the machines or the counter after refilling the tank.

Where are the best places to park in Aberdeen?

On-street parking in Aberdeen is usually time restricted and metered, with a fee of around £1 ($1.27) per 20 minutes. There are also various parking lots and garages available, some of which are even free of charge. The Denburn, Chapel Street, or Frederick Street parking lots, for instance, can be used without paying a fee after 5pm.
