Getting the best car hire deal
Just remember getting the cheapest car hire deal is not necessarily the best car hire deal. Make sure when you use our simple search, that you have considered every option.
Is the car high enough specification for the type of travel you have planned?
Remember that Scotland is a land of mountains and glens, so make sure your engine size is capable of the steep climbs, you will encounter should you decide to travel there.
Consider your passengers also. Is there enough legroom? Is there air-conditioning?
Do you have your own child safety seats or can the car hire company provide you with one (for an additional cost)?
Is there a good sound system or satnav (which can usually be higher for an additional cost)?
Check the fuel policy to avoid hidden fuel costs. You can choose a car with a full to full fuel policy - just making sure that you refill the tank before the end of the rental.

Where do I Pick up my Rental Car ?
The pick up location of the cheapest car hire at Glasgow Airport would depend on which company you have chosen to hire the car from.
I recently rented a car at an airport in the UK and noticed that one particular car hire company was very busy with the others had smaller queues.
This would imply a cheaper cost was being offered, but the people at the end of the queue suffered a significant delay before being attended to. As stated before - getting the cheapest car hire deal is not necessarily the best car hire deal if it means a long wait to being attended to and significant delay to your onward travel plans.
