Location information for Aberdeen

Aberdeen is known for its coastline, and the city centre has grown thanks to the booming offshore oil industry. The city is dubbed the ‘Granite City' due to the many buildings made from locally mined granite. The combination of historic sites and natural beauty make Aberdeen a popular vacation destination. The best way to explore the beautiful coast and countryside is by self-driving.



Aberdeen International Airport is only a 15-minute drive from the city centre. Other options include the train, via Aberdeen Station, or ferries with connections to Kirkwall and Lerwick. The city has a good bus service and most of the central area can be explored on foot. However, public transportation can be limited outside the city centre so car hire in Aberdeen is the most convenient way to explore the countryside.

Car Hire Aberdeen

There are plenty of historic and natural attractions to see outside Aberdeen and self-driving provides the maximum amount of flexibility. Exploring the coast, both north and south, is best done by driving along the scenic Coast Road. The choices for car rental in Aberdeen are abundant, with major companies such as Avis, Enterprise and Europcar offering deals.


Driving is easy in and around Aberdeen. The city centre is not overly crowded and parking is relatively easy. Outside of the city, roads are in good repair and easy to navigate. Drivers can choose from smaller local roads or larger A-roads, depending on time constraints and interest. To get the best deals on a rental, compare car hire in advance online.

Things To See and Do

Driving west through the countryside from Aberdeen, a fantastic site is Balmoral Castle nestled within the Cairngorms National Park, the holiday retreat of the British royal family. On the way, those with children should not miss stopping at Storybook Glen, a fairy wonderland! Another key attraction here is the stunning Crathes Castle, a National Trust Building.

Best Time To Visit

Aberdeen is known for its unspoiled nature and beautiful coast and the best time to explore these is during the summer when the temperature is the warmest and there is the least amount of rain. Temperatures fluctuate between 10°C and 29°C during July and August. The winter months can become very cold and rainy. In November and December temperatures can go as low as -10°C, with daily highs of around 16°C.

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 121CarHire.com 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). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by 121CarHire.com? at this location
