    See More with a Scotland Car Rental

    Scotland is a vast and beautiful country. Its modern cities are hothouses of culture and commerce, in stark contrast to its mountainous, sweeping, and sparse highlands. A Scotland rental car is an absolute necessity if you want to make the most of your trip! Starting from Glasgow International Airport or Edinburgh, you'll find a wealth of tourist attractions before you.

    Great Rates on Rental Cars in ScotlandEdinburgh, the capital city of Scotland, has many historic sites well worth a visit and a luxury car rental in Scotland will allow you to tour the city in absolute comfort. The ancient Edinburgh Castle sits overlooking the city on Castle Rock, and every year astounds over a million visitors with its imposing architecture and impressive history. On the other end of the city is Holyrood Palace, the historic residence for visiting British monarchs, itself remarkable for its grandeur and significance. Situated between the two at the city's enter is Arthur's Seat, an extinct volcano referenced extensively in mythology and literature. A drive there will make it obvious why. Hop into your Scotland rental car at the end of a busy day of sightseeing and head into Edinburgh's Old Town for a taste of still more history, including Mary King's Close, an ancient and allegedly haunted alleyway.

    When you rent a car Scotland can be seen at your own pace. Every summer, Edinburgh hosts the month-long Fringe Festival, the largest arts festival in the world. There are also enough restaurants, museums, and distilleries to satisfy anyone touring Scotland by car. Glasgow, the country's "second capital," is host to many attractions, like the beautiful Glasgow Cathedral, or the city's massive Botanical Gardens. With a rental car in Scotland, you'll be free to visit both cities - visit our one way car rental page for more information on how to arrange the ultimate trip. 


    Popular Questions & Information on Car Rentals in Scotland

    How old do you need to be to rent a car in Scotland?

    The minimum age to rent a car in Scotland is 21 years old. Rental age requirements vary by supplier and some suppliers will charge a young driver surcharge for car renters under the age of 25. The young driver surcharge is expensive in England and can vary between £30-£40 per day.

    Some rental car suppliers in Scotland will also have a maximum age limit. Drivers over the age of 70 should pay close attention to age restrictions in the booking process and be sure they don't need additional documentation to pick-up their car rental in Scotland. Renters over the age of 70 should call an Auto Europe reservations agent at 1-888-223-5555 prior to travel.

    Can I use my license to drive in Scotland?

    Travelers from the United States and Canada can pick up a vehicle in Scotland and drive off the rental agency lot with a domestic driver's license that is in good standing and has been valid for at least one year. Additionally, a passport must also be produced if the driver is not a citizen of the UK. That being said, it is highly recommended that travelers planning to drive in England acquire an international drivers permit (IDP), which can be purchased from your local AAA or CAA branch for only $15.

    While an IDP is not necessary to rent a vehicle in Scotland (as long as your domestic driver's license is in English), an IDP serves as an internationally recognized form of identification.

    Can I drive my rental car into other countries?

    Contact Auto Europe Wherever You AreMost UK rental car categories can be driven anywhere in Western Europe, United Kingdom, Northern Ireland and Ireland. However, it is necessary to purchase additional insurance coverage for travel outside mainland UK. This coverage costs US$17 - US$30 per day and covers roadside assistance, greencard insurance, and customs and excise forms to take cars on ferries. Due to insurance regulations, there are restrictions on luxury car categories and on travel in certain countries. Please take a minute to ensure that your intended itinerary will be possible with the car you plan to rent.

    Domestic one-way car rentals are available between select locations, additional fees may apply. There are fees for international one-way rentals and car rentals to Northern Ireland, and not all vehicles are allowed.
