KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Aberdeen

  • There is hardly a better way to explore the eastern coastline of Scotland and all the attractions of Aberdeen – such as the Maritime Museum or the Art Gallery – or the inner Scottish countryside than by renting a car. Benefit from the flexibility and a sense of freedom when visiting the coastal city when you get your own hire car.
  • Aberdeen Airport is located about six and a half miles from the heart of Aberdeen and travelers can rent a car directly from there to be in the city in about twenty minutes. There are various onsite car hire agencies of internationally renowned companies like Avis, Hertz, and Europcar, to name a few.
  • In Aberdeen, like the rest of the UK, cars drive on the left side of the road, plus the steering wheel is on the right-hand side of the car. Travelers who are not used to this should consider renting a GPS system with the car, as it makes it easier to navigate on the other side of the road. Remember to enter roundabouts clockwise and be extra attentive at intersections.
  • Peak times in Aberdeen are usually around 6-9 am and 4-7 pm in Aberdeen during the week, and traffic can increase dramatically with waiting hours sometimes as long as 1 hour. Try to avoid these times for driving if possible and find ways through little alleys and streets rather than bit arterial roads like the A96, for instance.
  • Book your rental car in Aberdeen at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Aberdeen are around 51% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Aberdeen

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Aberdeen?

    As Aberdeen is located in the north, it is wise to rent a 4-wheel-drive car, especially when visiting during the winter. Parking and traffic can be challenging in the city, so opt for a smaller car if possible, as it can fit into more parking spaces and will also need less petrol – which can get pretty expensive in Europe and the UK.

  • What’s the speed limit in Aberdeen?

    Even though the rest of European countries uses the metric system, in the UK the imperial system prevails to some extent and speed limits are given in miles per hour. Bear in mind that the posted signs are on the left side of the road. General regulations permit 30 mph in residential areas, but it goes down to 20 mph around schools. 50 mph is permitted on rural roads and up to 70 mph on freeways (called motorways in the UK and usually marked with an “M”).

  • Where are the best places to park in Aberdeen?

    On-street parking in Aberdeen is usually time restricted and metered, with a fee of around £1 ($1.27) per 20 minutes. There are also various parking lots and garages available, some of which are even free of charge. The Denburn, Chapel Street, or Frederick Street parking lots, for instance, can be used without paying a fee after 5pm.

  • What is the cheapest car hire company in Aberdeen?

    In the past 72 hours, the cheapest car hires were found at Alamo (RM 129/day), keddy by Europcar (RM 157/day) and Sixt (RM 184/day). In the last 72 hours the cheapest rental car price was found at Alamo Enterprise Rent A Car AB21 7DU (9 kilometers from city center).

  • How much is the price of fuel in Aberdeen?

    The average price of fuel in Aberdeen is RM 32.43 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of fuel costs between RM 389 and RM 519, depending on the car size.

  • What is the most popular car hire in Aberdeen?

Cons:

I phoned to say that i would arrive just after 11pm abd was that a problem. I was told by Staff at Enterprise Aberdeen Airport that although they shut at 11pm someone would wait. I arrived to find everything shut. I needed a taxi and then return the next day. I was told my car was not there but a similar would be found. I thought the JUKE was slightly small for the size i ordered.

I got soft scammed through kayak to purchase collision and damage insurance via the booking form. Turns out Europcar doesn't accept third party insurance. So i had to buy another policy from them before they would give me the car. They told me it happens all the time. Super disappointing.

Cons:

When I arrived, I was informed that the prior customer had returned the car wrecked and there was no other car available for me to drive. There was also no other rental car available at any other rental company nearby. Needless to say, this caused major havoc for my intended vacation plans (which involved driving to 3 other cities in the area), and ended up costing me 3x as much on trains/buses and having to change plans for hotels. One of the guys at the customer service desk did his best to help (allowing me to use their phone for international calls, etc.), while shortly after the other kicked me out of their small waiting area, where I was using wifi to rearrange my plans, because other customers were on their way in. I won't be using them again.

Booking was easy. Car pick up was a nightmare. The Marriott was hard to find and far from the airport. Booth was in a hallway closet in the Marriot. Registration was complicated and needed to happen online on a portal device provided by the clerk. Needed to scan documents with my phone and submit them online (just showing them license and passport wasn't enough). Hidden fees included CDW, and a 1,500 pound collision deposit. Payment was complicated and involved a third party "WorldPay" link, which in the end did not recognize my credit card. We left after nearly an hour or paperwork without a car.

Very poor customer service. The young man who served us was not happy we were early. It was difficult to send a message to change our pick up time. He eventually said he could do it but we would have to wait. Denying insurance was difficult. Proof that our credit card company covers rental car insurance was needed. LUCKILY I BROUGHT THE PAMPHLET FROM AM EXPRESS!! We were not given any papers just told it would be sent by email. Drop off was a drop box. No confirmation to tell us everything was ok after drop off. Took pictures and video just in case needed!!! It was cheaper to rent with them, BUT for a reason. I would definitely not use Easyrent again. Pay a bit more with a more reputable company!

Pros:

All of the staff I spoke to were very friendly and helpful.

Cons:

With a one-way rental, we had never been to the Stena terminal before and on google maps it’s very confusing where the Hertz return location is. Even after phone confirmation with the Hertz rep on site we were unsure where to park because there are ZERO signs that say car rental, Hertz, etc.

6.8 Okay

Jul 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was compact, comfortable, and clean. Overall it was the right car for our vacation. At Glasgow airport Hertz, the younger woman at the pick-up and drop off was very nice and helpful, regardless of the trouble the other member of staff made.

Cons:

Although we called ahead to Hertz in Glasgow from Dublin airport about switching our pick-up location (due to delays and missed flights) which would be "no problem at all", they seemed to have nothing available when we got there. When they finally found a vehicle similar to our initial order, we felt like there were A LOT of added/hidden costs. The person helping us out was rude, and we seemed like an inconvenience. When we got to the car at the lot, about to load it, another member of staff claimed we were taking the wrong vehicle (which we were not) and continued to the lot-office to check. I later followed as we didn't understand what the issue was. Other staff also didn't understand what the problem was, so after some deliberation on her side she exclaimed "whatever, just tell her it's fine... Just let them take it!" Some of the staff should've handled the situation better by communicating with both the colleagues and clients. The explanation of the rental agreement should not be done rudely, and the pick-up/drop-off staff member handled the situation quite poorly.
