KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Inverness

  • It is highly recommended that visitors of Inverness rent a vehicle during their time there. In part, this is because it is a charming city, but really it is because Inverness is the gateway to the Scottish Highlands -- and there is no better way to explore the Highlands than with a car. For instance, Loch Ness, home to the famed monster, is just 23 miles away from Inverness. Additionally, Cairngorm National Park is 30 miles southeast of Inverness.
  • Looking forward to beginning your trip to Inverness? For travelers who plan to pick up a rental car after landing at Inverness Airport, you can find the rental car counters in the airport’s Arrivals Hall and be on your way immediately.
  • Drivers coming from abroad should make sure to remember that it is illegal to drive while using a cellphone in Inverness and throughout Scotland. This also includes using your phone as a navigational device. So play it safe and have your passengers be the guide during your journey in Inverness.
  • Worried about rush hour putting a damper on your trip to Inverness? Fortunately for drivers, the congestion in Inverness is easily avoided. Nonetheless, there is still some traffic during the peak hours of rush hour in the morning from 6:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and in the afternoon from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The downtown core features the vast majority of congestion though, so as long as you avoid it, you should be okay.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Inverness for C$ 51 or less
  • Book your rental car in Inverness at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Inverness are around 35% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Intermediate rental cars in Inverness are around 63% cheaper than other car types, on average

Make sure you know how to start it or you won’t be going anywhere. Stay left, respect drivers behind you and pull off to let them pass, if you are site seeing. Remember your petrol tank is on the left. Enjoy, relax and have fun.

FAQs about renting a car in Inverness

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

    Inverness is a city with a long history and whose roads long predate the automobile and, as such, those roads are often slightly small and narrow. Small vehicles are highly recommended as larger vehicles that are common to the U.S. will struggle to fit on these roads, which is why such cars are quite uncommon to see in Inverness. Additionally, parking will be much easier for small cars like sedans, coupes, and compacts as streetside parking spaces are not always the largest.

  • What’s the speed limit in Inverness?

    Drivers can expect to see 20 mph as the standard speed limit for residential streets in Inverness. Additionally, speed limits of 30 mph and 40 mph are seen on thoroughfares and larger streets in Inverness, while highways and expressways in Scotland have speed limits from 60 to 70 mph.

  • Where are the best places to park in Inverness?

    Drivers will find that parking is widely available and much cheaper in Inverness compared to other Scottish towns.

My flight cancelled 10 hours prior to dept. I had to drop the car off at a new airport. I had one hell of a time figuring out how to get a hold of Avis to do this as the internet option told me I had to call someone. It took 30+ minutes to get a note in my res. Not even sure it was done right.

Pros:

Drop off was very efficient.

Cons:

There was a 2 fold difference between the amount on the final receipt and the initial estimate. As there are no petrol stations near Edinburgh airport, I had to hand in the car without filling the tank myself and was charged £100 for the fuel ! Give information about nearest petrol station.

KAYAK

Pros:

None

Cons:

Service was poor and filled with sneaky additional charges with little explanation. After paying for full insurance and having a defective front tire to start, they refused to reemburse for the replacement we had to fix during our trip out of pocket. Completely Irrational explanations as to why, $390.00 USD for a 4 day rental is an absurd scam. From the original quoted price of $89 +$150 for full insurance total. Upgrades were given and put on bill and told at desk no additional cost (nav, car upgrade) based on inventory availability after booking in advance, then charged to the final bill. Steer clear of Avis/Budget.

Pros:

The car was clean and functional

Cons:

The pick up process was slow and confusing. We got a flat tire and there was no spare, no patch kit, and Budget was extremely unhelpful throughout the entire process. Ended up having to pay for a tow truck, and a new tire out of my pocket and then upon returning the vehicle, there was no one that was willing to talk to me about the whole experience and just told me to call the customer service line, which is even worse to deal with, and it was just a terrible rental experience all around. The issue with the tire is still unresolved, and I am spending hours trying to get reimbursed, but to no avail. Worst rental experience I have ever had.

I booked an 8 seater van and was given a Peugeot 5008 instead. Had booked the vehicle via a 3rd party some 3 months before hand. The reason given for the change of vehicle was that they were busy. I did question that when the booking was taken they had the vehicle I wanted so why not now? No real reason was given other than they were busy. To give the staff their due, they did offer me 2 vehicles for the same price if the 5008 was not big enough. I must also say that the staff were pleasant ands tried their best around the situation they had to deal with which was in all likelyhood out of their control. Other than the wrong vehicle and the delay the replacement vehicle caused the vehicle was good and drop off very easy.

Pros:

We were picked up at the airport (you have to call them and they will be there within minutes). The collection process was really quick and easy. The staff was excellent and showed us quickly the specifics of the car (which by the way was upgraded). We were offer onsite to reduce the Excess to 0 or to £100, we chose the latter which was ~£50 extra for the 3 days we rented the vehicle. The drop-off process was very easy and quick too! we got another ride to the airport from there. FYI, they took £300 deposit from the credit card which will be refunded after you return your car and they check everything is OK.

Cons:

All was good!

Besides being expensive, we told them what time we were dropping the car back off and they never mentioned they’d be closed so we had no shuttle to the airport and we had to walk with all of our baggage from Sixt to the airport on dark unlit streets in a foreign country. Very dissatisfied. They also did not have the car they repeatedly told us they’d have. We reserved a small SUV and they offered us a sedan or a slightly larger SUV. Of course there was an up charge for the suv so we got stuck in a sedan for the trip.

The car was good looking, clean and pleasure to drive. They offered me an automatic transmission which I appreciated. Drop-off was straightforward with a key dropbox in the terminal building. Returning the car with a full tank of fuel was tricky as the nearest gas station was some distance away.
