For a memorable trip to Glasgow, we recommend choosing a car. Only in this way will you will get access to not only well-known tourist routes, but also rare pearls, which are absent in guidebooks. With a car you get full freedom of action and don't need to be attached to schedules of a tourist group, nor to a timetable for transport. Just sit down and go wherever you want, to a busy city centre or to a quiet suburb. Only in this way will you see Glasgow in its entire diversity.
A viable car, a massive 4x4, or a hasty hatchback, choose the car you need to calculate the rental cost.
An important detail! Please note that the price for the same car may differ by 20 - 30% depending on the car rental point.
The most convenient way to choose the point where you are going to pick up and hand over a car is via this map; we have pinpointed all the rental points of your operator on it.
The lion's share of fines, which are received by travellers who came to Glasgow, are superimposed on them for non-compliance with the traffic rules. Be attentive and law-abiding. And in order not to get a fine being a pedestrian, you should be aware of the most significant monetary punishments in the city:
It is important to remember two things. The first one is that you are visiting the city and its inhabitants, and on a visit, you should stick to the house rules. Therefore, even if a requirement seems irrational to you, stick to it. Therefore, you will save time and money and keep your reputation. The second one is that not all violations are resolved by fines. Some offences are considered so serious that their outcome is determined by the court. Getting into a confrontation in a foreign city during your own vacation is not a good idea.
When you rent a car via the cars-scanner service, you get a full turnkey package without any additional fees. The only exception is the countries, in which a fee or a tax is required by law.
During the booking process, you will be offered to choose equipment that is not included in the standard package, for example, sports equipment storage. You will know the price immediately, but you should pay for it to the rental company upon receipt of a car.
Do you like fast driving? Try not to do this in the city and its surroundings; proceedings with local road patrol service will not add charm to your vacation. Speed limits specified in Glasgow:
In addition, do not forget to follow up-to-date information on the allowed speed limits on road signs; it may slightly differ from th information indicated in the table.
At the rental company office, you may be required to provide an international driving licence.
We care about your budget and in conjunction with rental companies of the city of Glasgow, we regularly make deals and launch special offers. Start monitoring prices for dates you are interested in right at the beginning of planning your trip, so you have a better chance to rent a car with the maximum benefit. The most reasonable time is 2-4 months before the start of the rental time within normal periods and 3-6 months within the high season.
Car prices may change daily. To get a fixed price, book in advance. In the case of cancellation of the trip, you may cancel your car rental free of charge, what is most important is to do it no later than 24 hours before the trip.
To find out the possibility and cost of returning a rented car in another city, check the box "return to another place" and search for options. In the search results, only those rental companies will be displayed that allow you to return cars to another location. The price indicated on our website already includes the one-way tariff.
If the details of your trip have changed, and you do not need a booked car, there are no problems.
We will replace your booking free of charge, if you contact us at least 24 hours before the start of the rental time.
Cancellation less than 24 hours will cost you 50 EUR; the rest will be returned to your account.
Carefully read the cancellation policy for cars participating in deals and special offers; some of them may change their cancellation conditions.
To travel calmly and to not to think about possible damage to the car, take out a full insurance policy; in this case, any difficulties with the car cease to be your concern and fall on the shoulders of an insurance company.
Carefully read the terms and conditions; there should be a complete list of all occurrences clearly written in the Insurance Cover section.

Petrol stations are located on the outskirts of Glasgow, so it is better not to go to the city centre with the empty tank. You are allowed to transport fuel in a canister in the city, so you may, for your own calmness, buy and fill a 10-litre container with the right kind of petrol or diesel.

Please note that drivers under 25 and over 70 are often less trusted at the provider's office and are subject to an extra payment when renting. The policies of your car rental company may be found on our website in the Age Restrictions section.
