Location information for Scotland

Although Scotland is a relatively small country, there is an incredible amount of things to see and do here. The landscape is varied with some amazing highlands, impressive coastline and picturesque rolling green hills. To really see the most of Scotland it is best to hire a car and self-drive.

Scotland offers its visitors a wide variety of things to do; historians will love the 1,000-year-old historic sites and museums while outdoorsmen will relish the incredible mountains and coastal treks and young people can enjoy the nightlife in the cosmopolitan cities. There is truly something for everyone.

The capital city, Edinburgh, is conveniently located on the east coast, only 60 miles from the English border. The city has been declared an UNESCO World Heritage site because of the abundance of historic sites such as the impressive 12th century Edinburgh Castle and St Giles Cathedral. Edinburgh also boasts a wide range of modern shopping, world-class restaurants and fantastic pubs and clubs.

Positioned along the east coast of Scotland and easily reached by cheap car hire in Scotland are numerous cities including the famous St Andrews. St Andrews is not only home to one of the world's oldest golf courses but is where you can find St Andrews Castle and St Andrews Cathedral, which were both built around the 12th century.

The best way to see the eastern coast is by car rental in Scotland - slowly make your way through the small villages, stopping off to see attractions and the traditional Scottish countryside. Heading north, Aberdeen and Peterhead are both worth checking out.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is HireCars.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
