What are the options for my hired car?


With the right insurance throughEdinburgh

With the right insurance through Edinburgh

Even if you drive very carefully and safely, damage may occur to the hired car. To ensure that you can continue your journey without stress, we recommend that you take out fully comprehensive insurance without excess. In the event of damage, you will have to advance the costs. However, you will be reimbursed by your insurance company after your arrival back home. Simply submit the relevant receipts when you return from Edinburgh.

One-way rental

For those who want to do a road trip to Edinburgh with a hired car, the one-way rental might be the best option. This means that you can pick up your hired car at the location of your choice and return it conveniently to another location. This is particularly useful if you are heading for cities that are far away from each other, such as Glasgow.

Additional driver

What does the additional driver option actually mean? If you specify another person as an additional driver when booking, you can take turns driving the hired car. Distances in Scotland are often very long. If only one person drives the hired car, this can be quite exhausting. So that the driver can sit back and relax, too, you can simply hand over the steering wheel to the additional driver.

Remember to always drive on the left-hand side of the road
