KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Elgin

  • Elgin is a fantastic place to visit for anyone who is big on history and appreciates some of the finer whiskeys in life. The region of Elgin in Scotland is a must-see area and will be made a lot better with access to a car. Luckily, there are several car hire options for anyone visiting Elgin. It’s also a great stop-off point for anyone wanting to explore some of the peripheral beauty this area of Scotland has to offer. Elgin boasts of places such as Glen Moray Distillery, Elgin Cathedral and Cove Bay. All of these are highly accessible by car, meaning your trip will be made so much easier if you look at car hire in Elgin for your journey to the Scottish coastline.
  • If you’re planning on getting a hire car from the airport close to Elgin, you’d aim for Inverness Airport (INV). With a relatively small building, hiring a car from Inverness does not require you to take a bus or shuttle to the car hire vicinities. You can reach several car hire offices just by walking to them from the terminal. Inverness Airport is just under 30 miles away from Elgin city centre, making it the ideal location to pick up a hire vehicle for Elgin car hire. If you find that all of the airport hire options are booked up, there are also a few car hire agencies in town who would be more than happy to fix you up with a car to explore Elgin.
  • Driving anywhere in Scotland is the ultimate experience where drivers can feel all the freedom of the open road while taking in the gorgeous country scenery. Elgin is one of the best places in Scotland to experience exactly that. The roads are open with very little room for close encounters; overall, drivers feel safe and liberated on the roads surrounding Elgin, so there is nothing to worry about in terms of safety and security. This is all the more reason to choose car hire in Elgin as a way of getting around.
  • Driving in Scotland in the winter can be hard work and requires a lot of concentration. Not only does it become very cold and icy, but drivers lose a lot of daylight. It can start to get dark as early as 14:30 in the rural areas of Scotland. This is worth keeping in mind if you and your family are thinking of taking a winter trip up to Elgin.
  • Book your rental car in Elgin at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
