KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Stirling

  • Conveniently explore all the attractions of Stirling and other destinations when you rent a car while visiting the city. You will navigate the city and outside places hassle-free and enjoyable. Not only does getting cheap car rentals in Stirling makes your life easy, but it also ensures that you're unrestricted during your vacation. The city has attractions and places you can conveniently visit with your rental car. You will go right when you visit places like Stirling Castle, The National Wallace Monument, and The Battle of Bannockburn Visitor Center. Forthbank Stadium is about 1.5 km from the city center. You can conveniently get there in about 10 minutes with a Stirling car rental.
  • Motorists and cyclists using the same lanes are typical in Stirling. Often, motorists and cyclists fail to adhere to traffic regulations, and it's almost a natural thing. Thus, when driving your cheap car rentals in Stirling, it's helpful to keep an excellent eye on the road to avoid accidents. Care should be doubled when approaching and overtaking cyclists because they usually overlook fine details of traffic regulations. Additionally, due to its immense population, expect many jaywalkers who often cross the roads unannounced. You need to be extra careful when navigating the roads.
  • When driving your car rental in Stirling, you’ll encounter heavy traffic, especially during rush hours. As one of the fast-growing cities in Scotland, Stirling is brimming with cars, making maneuvering its streets overwhelming. The situation is even worse because many residents use personal cars, causing more traffic delays in the city. Try as much as possible to avoid being on the roads during rush hours, usually from 7 am to 10 am and 4 pm to 8 pm. Plan your journey well to arrive before or after the rush hours. And if possible, avoid Port Street during rush hours.
  • The city of Stirling is the geographical bridge between the Scottish Lowlands and the Highlands, playing a pivotal role in much of the country’s history. With car hire in Stirling, you can explore both regions with a freedom and flexibility to explore towns and villages beyond the reach of public transport. Start your escapades with a visit to the city of Glasgow, 27 miles south along the M80, as a warm-up for the lengthy trip to Inverness in the heart of the Highlands, 143 miles north via the A9.
  • If you decide on Edinburgh Airport (EDI) for your flight to Scotland, you can obtain a car hire in Stirling from the airport’s Car Hire Centre before setting off on the 30-mile drive to your destination. Among the providers servicing the airport are Thrifty, Alamo and Sixt. To find their desks, just exit the terminal building from Domestic Arrivals and follow the directions to the Multi Storey Car Park. You’ll see the car hire village at the end of the covered walkway.
  • The city of Stirling has a large number of intracity commuters, which means you can expect a significant amount of vehicular, pedestrian and cycle traffic on the motorways during morning and evening rush hours. Craigs Roundabout is a key point for congestion, as is the huge M9/A84 interchange west of Raploch district for inbound and outbound flow to the city centre. The area around University of Stirling is an active pedestrian/cycle zone at any time during the university year.
  • If you want to escape peak rush hour traffic, avoid major roads leading in and out of the city centre from 07:00–09:00 and 16:00–18:30. The early afternoon period from 13:00-15:00 is active with lunch and retail shoppers, which will also cause delays near school and retail zones. Stirling attracts many visitors especially during the summer months between May and September, so if you intend to visit during this period, expect a heavy increase of overall traffic to impede your progress as you drive around the city limits.
