Payment method

MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, and American Express cards are accepted for booking payments.
PLEASE NOTE that some rental points accept credit cards only. In order not to find out about this at the time when you receive the car, carefully read the Payment Methods section before travelling.

Deposit and credit card information

If a provider does indicate the need to provide a credit card when booking, and you do not have it, check the status of your debit card on www.bindb.com. The fact is that some debit cards are actually credit cards with zero limit. If your card is one of them, you may use it.

Traffic violation fines

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.

Do I have to pay additional local fees?

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.

Speed limits

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.

Documents required for car receipt

Driver's license
Credit card
Voucher
PLEASE NOTE

At the rental company office, you may be required to provide an international driving licence.

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.

Prices for petrol/diesel in Glasgow

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.
