Important information about Glasgow car hire

Can I drive into England with a rental car from Glasgow?

Car hire in Glasgow does allow you to cross the border to travel into other countries. If you are planning on taking your rental car across the border, you will need to tell your car hire company in advance, as this may incur an additional charge. This charge would cover any additional insurance that may be required. If you are looking to travel to Ireland, France, or any other country in Europe, you might be required to pay an extra fee, depending on the policies of the individual car hire companies. It is also worth noting that there may be a charge to cross the border as well. However, Glasgow car hire companies will only allow you to take certain categories of cars across the border; these would include cars from the economy and passenger vehicle ranges. It is always best to check with your rental provider on what their exact rules on border crossings are.

Can you hire a car in Glasgow without a credit card?

Car hire in Glasgow is possible without a credit card. In this case, you will have an extra charge issued to your debit card when you pick up your rental car. This amount will be held as insurance by the car rental company. When you return your rental car, the money will be refunded to your bank. You will also have to pay a fuel deposit which will be refunded after you return your rental car. The amounts of the deposits will depend on the type of vehicle you hire. You should note that there might be restrictions on which vehicles can be hired with only a debit card. You may not be able to hire luxury cars in Glasgow this way. For confirmation, you should check with your car rental company.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Glasgow?

Glasgow follows the driving rules of the United Kingdom, and cars are driven on the left-hand side of the road. The minimum driving age is 17 years; however, each car hire company will have its own minimum age requirements. Seat belts are compulsory to wear at all times, whether you are driving or travelling as a passenger in the front or back seat. If you have children aged under 12 years and shorter than 135 cm, they must use a child seat and are not allowed to sit in the front. Be aware that there may be wildlife on the roads in rural areas, so drive especially carefully in these parts. In Glasgow, the drinking and driving limit is 0.05%. Due to this low amount, it is best to not have even a single drink before driving a vehicle.

What documents does an international traveller need to hire a car in Glasgow?

Car hire in Glasgow requires you to have a passport, driving licence and credit/debit card. You may also need additional insurance, so check with your insurance provider before you leave for your trip. Your insurance may cover international travel; however, it is best to check this with your insurance company. You may need an international drivers permit or licence; please check with your car rental company if this is necessary. Most cheap car rentals in Glasgow allow drivers under the age of 25 to hire their cars. If you are under the age of 25, you will have to pay a young driver's fee to cover any additional insurance that is required.
