Easy pick-up and drop-offWe were picked up at the airport (you have to call them and they will be there within minutes). The collection process was really quick and easy. The staff was excellent and showed us quickly the specifics of the car (which by the way was upgraded). We were offer onsite to reduce the Excess to 0 or to £100, we chose the latter which was ~£50 extra for the 3 days we rented the vehicle. The drop-off process was very easy and quick too! we got another ride to the airport from there. FYI, they took £300 deposit from the credit card which will be refunded after you return your car and they check everything is OK.All was good!

I reserved a certain kind of car online and they did not have it, so the only alternative was a car which was another 250.00. No explanation...they just said "here" if you want it.

The car was great, 48MPG, 6 speed, peppy and comfortable. We put on nearly 900 miles. Pickup was slow, the guy was chatty, very nice, but he had to schmooze with everyone and we were last in the queue. Minor problem, everything else was perfect.

1.9 Horrible2 Sep 2021
Europcar made us purchase CDW insurance at the desk even though this was provided through our credit card. This almost doubled the cost of our rental but there was nothing we could do about it because we had pre paid the rental cost. Bait and switch and an almost $1000 extra expense.

Pick up and drop off were super easy and convenient. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the whole process was smooth, quick and easy.More information about required insurance, etc. in other countries that we weren't aware of would have been helpful.

Don’t be late or you’ll be sorry!!We were over the 2 hour pickup window due to a rail delay. Hertz gave away our car (an automatic that I paid $200 extra for in Scotland). Only car left was a stick shift...fine I’ll drive a stick!! But no reduction of price !!!

I got screwedLater pick up than expected so car I reserved was let go and I was charged double for a different car. They blamed Kayak. Either Kayak or Hertz should pay me a refund

The car was in great condition, and easy to drive. Friendly staff and good price.I had requested a small car, and made my reservation weeks in advance, but none was available so I had to go for the next size up. Not a huge deal, but I would have preferred a smaller car. I also got bad advice on the gas deal.

Drop off was very efficient.There was a 2 fold difference between the amount on the final receipt and the initial estimate. As there are no petrol stations near Edinburgh airport, I had to hand in the car without filling the tank myself and was charged £100 for the fuel ! Give information about nearest petrol station.

The attendants at the rental desk were helpful and friendly.The car I thought I had reserved was not available, and the only car available that would fit our luggage was in another category at more than twice the price.

Pay attention to your charges and Insurance detailsNoneService was poor and filled with sneaky additional charges with little explanation. After paying for full insurance and having a defective front tire to start, they refused to reemburse for the replacement we had to fix during our trip out of pocket. Completely Irrational explanations as to why, $390.00 USD for a 4 day rental is an absurd scam. From the original quoted price of $89 +$150 for full insurance total. Upgrades were given and put on bill and told at desk no additional cost (nav, car upgrade) based on inventory availability after booking in advance, then charged to the final bill. Steer clear of Avis/Budget.

Misrepresentation of CostsCost you quoted me was no where what i was charged in Inverness at pickup, plus outrageous costs for additional drivers AND big difference n what you quoted me for insurance and what they charged me.

Unhelpful in a pinchThe car was clean and functionalThe pick up process was slow and confusing. We got a flat tire and there was no spare, no patch kit, and Budget was extremely unhelpful throughout the entire process. Ended up having to pay for a tow truck, and a new tire out of my pocket and then upon returning the vehicle, there was no one that was willing to talk to me about the whole experience and just told me to call the customer service line, which is even worse to deal with, and it was just a terrible rental experience all around. The issue with the tire is still unresolved, and I am spending hours trying to get reimbursed, but to no avail. Worst rental experience I have ever had.
2.0 Mediocre8 Sep 2016
Wrong information providedEverything from booking to return was super goodThe amount mentioned in Kayak was in USD but Budget charged in GBP. The website and the email that I received clearly mentioned that I will be charged in USD . Now after return I paid in GBP which costed me more than the initial amount plus the foreign transaction fee for my credit card.

Pickup was easy and convenient.My flight cancelled 10 hours prior to dept. I had to drop the car off at a new airport. I had one hell of a time figuring out how to get a hold of Avis to do this as the internet option told me I had to call someone. It took 30+ minutes to get a note in my res. Not even sure it was done right.
4.4 Okay2 Jun 2019
I liked that I could get a vehicle. I didn’t like the fact that I was offered nothing similar to the vehicle I had reserved at the price, or a price even remotely close to what I had booked. I felt pressured because I needed a car, in a different country so I pretty much had to take what was offeredWhat could have been better was if what I had booked online was available at the price I had booked it for.

Top tips for renting a car at Inverness Airport

  • Finding car hire at Inverness Airport is remarkably simple; once you’ve come through the Arrivals Terminal you can find the various rental company desks located in the terminal building, while the car collection areas are only just across the road. Some car hire companies are located away from the airport, and as there are only a few companies at the airport itself, we recommend booking your vehicle online prior to your departure to avoid any potential delays caused by waiting in line. Booking through KAYAK will allow you to identify the deals with collection of vehicles at the terminal or if a shuttle is required.
  • Inverness Airport car hire is the perfect way to explore the Scottish Highlands. Like its airport, Inverness city is very small and thus easy to get around on foot and by bicycle. However, though the city is historic and the capital of the Highlands region, the surrounding areas are the real sights to be seen. Renting a car to get around and experience the natural beauty of this area is a better option to take when comparing it to public transport, especially as bus services in these areas are infrequent and difficult to rely on.
  • Once you’ve been able to collect your vehicle, the journey into Inverness city centre isn’t very complicated. The B9309 road leads onto the A96 into the city, and is only around nine miles away, and takes about 15min to drive. So, if you’re staying in the city, the short drive away from the airport is a bonus. From the airport, via the A96, A9 and A82, you can also reach Loch Ness, one of the most famous lakes in the world. It’s only about a 35min drive away, so you could even start your sightseeing tour immediately after your arrival. The stunning Cairngorms National Park is also only a 45min drive south on the A96 and A9 from the airport.
  • If you want to arrange car hire at Inverness Airport, make sure you are aware of the car hire company’s office hours. This is important for collection and drop-off purposes, as each company has a different policy when it comes to the time you collect and return your vehicle. If you need to collect or return the car outside of normal office hours, we recommend notifying the car hire company in advance to avoid any unexpected additional charges.
  • Book your rental car at Inverness Airport at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
