Location information for Glasgow

Glasgow is a centre of style, art and culture. It has many trendy bars and restaurants, and a fantastic music scene. In fact, it has been hailed by some as the most exciting city in Scotland. The city was named a European City of Culture in 1990, and lives up to this title with its many museums, theatres and art galleries. Glasgow offers great nightlife and entertainment, world-class shopping and a vibrant atmosphere. To top it off, it's surrounded by beautiful landscapes that are best explored by car.



Glasgow has an extensive public transport system, with rail networks and bus routes operating all over the city. The city centre, which is quite compact, is best explored on foot. But those looking to get the best out of their stay should use car hire in Glasgow, which is available at the city's two major air gateways, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick International Airport.

Car Hire Glasgow

The options for car rental in Glasgow are plentiful, with several companies offering their services in the city centre and at Glasgow's two airports. Europcar, Budget and Alamo are among the leading suppliers. Before you travel, be sure to compare car hire to get the best deal and to save time when you arrive.


Driving is a convenient way to get around Glasgow, where roads are well maintained and easy to follow. Parking can be expensive in the city centre, so it is advisable to park just outside and explore on foot. As with the rest of the UK, speed limits are generally 30mph in urban areas. From the city centre, drivers can easily connect to main motorways that lead to the Highlands, Carlisle and Argyll.

Things To See and Do

Glasgow is easy to navigate, making driving here enjoyable. The West End is only a three-mile drive from the city centre, and from here it's another seven miles to the South Side, where a film festival is held every year. Having a rental car gives visitors easy access to attractions and sights outside the city, too, such as Loch Lomond, the Highlands and Stirling Castle.

Best Time To Visit

Glasgow has a slightly milder climate than more easterly areas of Scotland because it is influenced by the Gulf Stream; however, there is often rain and winter days in particular are frequently cold and overcast. In the spring and summer months, the weather can be quite pleasant, especially during the period from March to May when spring flowers appear. July is generally the warmest month, with temperatures of around 19°C, but even summer weather can turn sour.

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
