There are many benefits to renting a car in this country. You have the freedom to go wherever you want to explore with a rental car. Despite Scotland's amazing public transportation, bus and train schedules' rigidity removes the freedom you need to explore this beautiful country. Also, with many car rental providers, you will find a vehicle to meet your needs and budget. Lastly, a rental car provides comfort and convenience, something you cannot get from public buses or trains.
As in the rest of the United Kingdom, you must stick to the left as you drive in Scotland. There are no fast lanes on Scotland roads, and you can only use the right lane when overtaking. Scotland has many roundabouts, and the general rule is that you give way to all vehicles approaching from the right. Do not drink and drive; driving with a BAC higher than 50 mg in 100 ml is a criminal offense. Give way to school buses, emergency vehicles with flashing lights, and pedestrians, even when crossing in undesignated areas. Be extra careful on rural roads, and deer frequently cross the roads suddenly.
You need to be at least 20 to get a rental car in Scotland. Most car rental providers require drivers to have held their driver's license for more than a year before they are allowed to rent a car. Additionally, if you are younger than 25, most providers have a young driver's daily surcharge, and you will not have access to some vehicle classes, including full-size SUVs, luxury vehicles, convertibles, and more. If you meet the age requirement, you also need a valid driver's license and a credit card for the deposit before you can rent a car in Scotland.
