Top tips for renting a car in Glasgow

  • Being Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow has really great public transportation which includes both buses and a subway system. However, you’ll appreciate having a hire car to get to the rural areas and countryside to enjoy towns like Loch Lomond, Houston (known for its brewing companies), and Stirling (a great place for history buffs).
  • Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland. Renting a car from the Glasgow Airport is both easy and convenient. The hire car center is a short walk from both the main terminal and terminal 2. With over seven hire companies to choose from, you can rent everything from a compact car to an SUV or luxury vehicle for your business trip or vacation.
  • Along with getting used to driving on the left side of the road, you should be aware of bus lanes when driving in Glasgow and other cities in Scotland. Watch for designated bus lane markings and note that these lanes are designated for buses only during certain hours of the day. Note that cameras monitor the bus lanes looking for law breakers.
  • When driving around Glasgow, you’ll find that it gets busiest between the hours of 3 p.m. and 6 p.m., and in the early morning from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. it can be just as congested. During these hours you’ll especially want to avoid driving around the city center. Additionally, you’ll want to stay off of the City Bypass and highway M8. Watch the news for traffic reports regarding accidents and construction projects for specific updates.
  • Book your rental car in Glasgow at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Glasgow are around 65% cheaper than other car types, on average
