Car Hire at Glasgow Prestwick Airport

Rather than relying on public transport to get you around on your trip, a hire car offers flexibility and comfort at your disposal; pop the sat-nav on and off you go in your air-conditioned vehicle! Make the most of your time on the British roads travelling to visit the local beauty and tourist spots or simply have the convenience of your own transport for food shopping and seeing the family.

Need another reason to hire a car? When you take into consideration all the costs involved with public transport; taxi fares, train passes and tube tickets, hiring a car for a week is likely to be much cheaper.

Whilst Prestwick Airport doesn’t have a car hire itself, there are two car hire places you can find just under 10 minutes from the airport.

Tops Tips for Booking Car Hire

Compare prices before booking

Use a comparison tool such as RentalCars to compare all the car rental options before you book to make sure you're getting the best price and options for your trip.

Ensure you have all the paperwork you need

You'll normally need your driver's licence, another form of ID, and a credit card but it's worth checking with your provider before you leave.

Watch out for Young Drivers Surcharges

Most car hire companies will have a minimum age they will rent to, and then an age under which you will have to pay a surcharge. This should be clear in the rental terms.

Check your vehicle

Once you've received your vehicle, check it for any damage. Make sure to take pictures and highlight any the pre-existing damage (if it isn't already) to rental staff before taking the car away, to avoid being charged for it later on.
