Pros: Pickup was easy and convenient.
Cons: 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: Pick up and drop off were super easy and convenient. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the whole process was smooth, quick and easy.
Cons: More information about required insurance, etc. in other countries that we weren't aware of would have been helpful.

Pros: The car was in great condition, and easy to drive. Friendly staff and good price.
Cons: I had requested a small car, and made my reservation weeks in advance, but none was available so I had to go for the next size up. Not a huge deal, but I would have preferred a smaller car. I also got bad advice on the gas deal.

I got screwed
Cons: Later pick up than expected so car I reserved was let go and I was charged double for a different car. They blamed Kayak. Either Kayak or Hertz should pay me a refund

Don’t be late or you’ll be sorry!!
Cons: We were over the 2 hour pickup window due to a rail delay. Hertz gave away our car (an automatic that I paid $200 extra for in Scotland). Only car left was a stick shift...fine I’ll drive a stick!! But no reduction of price !!!

Misrepresentation of Costs

Pay attention to your charges and Insurance details
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.
7.2 Good
20 Aug. 2019
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.
2.0 Mediocre
8 Sep. 2016
Wrong information provided
Pros: Everything from booking to return was super good
Cons: The amount mentioned in Kayak was in USD but Budget charged in GBP. The website and the email that I received clearly mentioned that I will be charged in USD . Now after return I paid in GBP which costed me more than the initial amount plus the foreign transaction fee for my credit card.
4.4 Okay
25 Oct. 2016
Unhelpful in a pinch
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.
7.2 Good
14 May 2019
Pros: The attendants at the rental desk were helpful and friendly.
Cons: The car I thought I had reserved was not available, and the only car available that would fit our luggage was in another category at more than twice the price.

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.
