Why it makes sense to hire a car at Glasgow Airport on your next business trip to Glasgow

Glasgow Airport Car Rental

Why it makes sense to hire a car at Glasgow Airport on your next business trip to Glasgow

When you make your next trip to Glasgow, for that next business meeting or job interview it makes sense to consider hiring a car from the airport in advance to ensure you get where you are going on time.

Glasgow International Airport is situated 9 miles from Glasgow city centre, connected by the well-designed M8 motorway.

If your business meeting is in the centre of Glasgow, there are several travel options available to you.


The airport taxis are located at the front of the main airport terminal building and the likely cost of a taxi is between £16 - £19 one way. It will take approximately 16 minutes to travel from Glasgow Airport to Glasgow city centre.  But what if your business meeting is not with Glasgow city itself – well then you have the added cost of travelling to the meeting location.

Stop That Bus!

The numerous bus services based close to the airport terminal building will cost you £7.50 single or £10 return and will run on average every 10 minutes. Again, the travel time from Glasgow International Airport to Glasgow city centre will be 20 minutes, along the M8 motorway. Similar issues will await you if your business meeting is not in the centre of Glasgow itself.

The Tracks of My Tears!

If it’s trains that rock your boat then I’m afraid you are going to be disappointed. The nearest train station is at Paisley, which in turn will need you hailing a taxi or stopping the bus.

So where does that leave you?

Well we are biased but we would suggest hiring a car at Glasgow Airport.
