KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Dumfries

  • The freedom and luxury you get from car hire in Dumfries allows you to explore the city and surrounding areas easily. With Dumfries car hire, visiting historical places such as Dumfries Museum is much more convenient. The drive to the museum takes about 30 minutes from the city, which is much faster than public transport.
  • You can collect your Dumfries car hire at West Freugh Airport. There's an on-site car hire centre right in the terminal, with companies like Arnold Clark, Enterprise, Sixt and Thrifty. Additional car hire companies have branches off-site and offer an airport shuttle to transfer you to their pick-up location. To collect your Dumfries car hire at the airport, visit the desks opposite the luggage claim area, and a car hire representative will guide you through the rest of the process.
  • When you hire a car in Dumfries, you should always carry the car hire paperwork agreement in case you get stopped by the police. It's not difficult to drive in Dumfries; however, you should watch out for pedestrians and cyclists, especially while driving in the city at night. The city roads are decent and relatively easy to follow, but you may need to use a hands-free GPS device or phone app to navigate unknown areas when driving outside the city. Speak with the car hire company to see if you can add a hands-free GPS device to your Dumfries car hire deal.
  • Driving in Dumfries during the holidays can be a hassle as major streets can get congested. To avoid traffic during the summer, try to steer clear of the popular beach areas and seek alternative sun spots further up the coast. Planning a trip during the rush hours is a bad idea, for instance, try to avoid the city centre between 8 am and 10 am and later in the evening from 4 pm to 6 pm.

Be careful when approaching a town, as the speed can jump from 60 mph to 30 mph, and cameras often track your average speed as you enter and exit the town. Speeding in a 20 mph or 30 mph area will result in a fine.

You can also park in secure car parks, metered bays and pay and display car parks. In Dumfries, locals can find a free parking space for a couple of hours when using the disc parking scheme.
