Top tips for renting a car in Inverness

  • It is highly recommended that visitors of Inverness rent a vehicle during their time there. In part, this is because it is a charming city, but really it is because Inverness is the gateway to the Scottish Highlands -- and there is no better way to explore the Highlands than with a car. For instance, Loch Ness, home to the famed monster, is just 23 miles away from Inverness. Additionally, Cairngorm National Park is 30 miles southeast of Inverness.
  • Looking forward to beginning your trip to Inverness? For travelers who plan to pick up a hire car after landing at Inverness Airport, you can find the hire car counters in the airport’s Arrivals Hall and be on your way immediately.
  • Drivers coming from abroad should make sure to remember that it is illegal to drive while using a cellphone in Inverness and throughout Scotland. This also includes using your phone as a navigational device. So play it safe and have your passengers be the guide during your journey in Inverness.
  • Worried about rush hour putting a damper on your trip to Inverness? Fortunately for drivers, the congestion in Inverness is easily avoided. Nonetheless, there is still some traffic during the peak hours of rush hour in the morning from 6:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and in the afternoon from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The downtown core features the vast majority of congestion though, so as long as you avoid it, you should be okay.
  • Book your rental car in Inverness at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

How can I find hire car agencies near me in Inverness?

Take a look at our extensive car hire location map to find the best hire cars near you.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Inverness?

Inverness is a city with a long history and whose roads long predate the automobile and, as such, those roads are often slightly small and narrow. Small vehicles are highly recommended as larger vehicles that are common to the U.S. will struggle to fit on these roads, which is why such cars are quite uncommon to see in Inverness. Additionally, parking will be much easier for small cars like sedans, coupes, and compacts as streetside parking spaces are not always the largest.

What's the speed limit in Inverness?

Drivers can expect to see 20 mph as the standard speed limit for residential streets in Inverness. Additionally, speed limits of 30 mph and 40 mph are seen on thoroughfares and larger streets in Inverness, while highways and expressways in Scotland have speed limits from 60 to 70 mph.

How are gas prices in Inverness?

Petrol costs on average £1.18 ($1.49) per liter in Inverness, which equates to £4.47 ($5.64) per gallon of gas. This is fairly average when comparing the price to other cities in Europe such as Prague’s average price of 24.91 CZK ($5.47) or Budapest’s average price of 1381.53 HOF ($4.87).

Where are the best places to park in Inverness?

Drivers will find that parking is widely available and much cheaper in Inverness compared to other Scottish towns. There are also plenty of parking lots and garages available in the more densely populated parts of town where streetside parking may be limited. Outside of the most popular areas, streetside parking is the predominant method of parking and is often easily and immediately available.
