Location information for Inverness

Inverness is known as the ‘Heart of the Highlands' and is a perfect destination for travellers who enjoy adventure and the great outdoors. It's packed with activities to do and sights to see, from the stunning landscapes of the Highlands to Nessie spotting at nearby Loch Ness. Local attractions are best explored with car rental in Inverness.



Bus routes are available within Inverness; however, they can be difficult to navigate and don't run in the evenings. There is also an ‘Invernet' train network, but it is limited to 10 destinations. Car hire in Inverness is the most efficient way to get around, as public transport can be inadequate. Most visitors arrive here by car via the A9 or by rail via Inverness Station, yet Inverness Airport serves a small selection of European destinations.

Car Hire Inverness

Car hire is available at Inverness Airport via companies like Budget, Europcar, Avis and Thrifty. Prices are relatively inexpensive, but visitors should compare car hire before they arrive to get the best deals. It is also possible to obtain vehicles at suppliers' city centre branches.


Driving conditions in and around Inverness are generally good. Roads are well maintained and the signage is adequate. However, those who visit during the winter months need to be aware that driving conditions can become treacherous when there is snow. Roads are subject to closure during poor driving conditions. Driving is on the left-hand side.

Things To See and Do

Inverness has a range of things to see and do. Inverness Castle and the Ness Islands are not to be missed, but active individuals looking for adventure should try some of the many hiking routes available from the Great Glen Way and Fort William. A trip to Loch Ness is a must; here, visitors can also go horseback-riding and pony trekking. All of these places are easily accessed by car, as are other attractions including the Culloden Battlefield, Fort George and Clava Cairns.

Best Time To Visit

The summer season is the optimum time to visit Inverness, as the weather is at its best, days are long and visitors are able to take full advantage of the outdoor activities available. Hiking, trekking and exploring are much more pleasant in warm weather! July and August are the busiest times, but visitors who come in spring and early autumn can still experience mild temperatures and sunny days. Rainfall is possible at any time of year. The winters in Inverness can be very cold, with minimum temperatures well below freezing.

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 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?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

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).
