Your drive, your vibe

Choose a robust 4X4 if your road trip has you heading out of Glasgow and across Scotland’s glorious landscapes. Or plump for something sweet and petite for tucking into Glasgow’s city car parks. Want to keep your emissions low or zero? Search for a hybrid or an EV.

Less than you’d think

Find no-frills runarounds that keep the daily rate low. Or search for luxury Glasgow car hire, which might be less than you expect. You’ll find a wide choice of options on Turo, and your rate always includes third-party liability insurance and mileage.

Cars where you need them

Need a car from Glasgow airport? Or from Glasgow Central Station when you arrive in town and want to swap rails for roads? Find ooh-lovely vehicles to pick up and return at super handy locations citywide.

Loch Lomond

Escape to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park to experience Scotland at its outdoorsy best. Follow the well-marked viewpoints on an impossibly scenic drive and linger longer to go camping, cycling, and fishing.


If you can’t get enough of city life, head from Glasgow to Edinburgh to compare and contrast the two Scottish metropolises. It’ll take you a little over an hour on a good run between the two.

South West Coastal 300

Head 90 minutes south of Glasgow to join a circular road trip — the South West Coastal 300. It starts and ends in Dumfries, following the coastline along country roads past ancient abbeys, botanic gardens, and majestic castles.

Driving tips in Glasgow

Purple squiggle

Glasgow’s Low-Emission Zone

From June 2023, Glasgow’s Low Emission Zone (LEZ) means that vehicles that exceed Glasgow’s emissions threshold will face a penalty charge if they enter the LEZ. Don’t forget to check exclusions and whether your Glasgow car hire is affected.

Watch out for rush hour

Outside of Scotland’s cities, the roads can be pretty quiet. But just like every other city, Glasgow has a rush hour in the morning and late afternoon, so plan your trips wisely to avoid getting snarled up.

International guest?

In Scotland, cars drive on the left, and all the road signs you’ll see are in miles per hour. There are no tolls on bridges, so don’t worry about finding loose change. If you find yourself on a narrow road in rural Scotland, there are passing places to help keep traffic moving. You might even see the odd animal on the country roads, so drive carefully.
