First opened in 1966, Glasgow Airport is the main airport serving the west of Scotland. It is the second busiest in Scotland and the eighth busiest in the UK, handling almost nine million passengers a year. The airport lies about seven miles west of Glasgow city centre.
Glasgow Airport car hire
Hiring a car from Glasgow Airport allows people travelling to the west of Scotland to easily access some of the most strikingly beautiful parts of the country; areas which are hard to reach by any other form of transport. By flying and driving, those travelling from South-East England, for example, can reach places like the Isles of Arran and Skye in just a fraction of the time.
The Ayrshire coast is hugely popular with walkers, golfers and others, while Fort William, further north, is a major tourist centre – the place to go if you want to tackle Ben Nevis or other nearby Munro mountains.
Glasgow Airport car rental means that all of these places can be explored much more easily, but Europcar’s one way car hire also provides another way of going about things. It allows you to pick up your car in Glasgow before dropping it off at another location. This means you can fly home from elsewhere, allowing you to see even more of Scotland than you otherwise would.
Even if you’re just flying into Glasgow for a few days for business, car hire gives you the freedom to explore the local area during those times when you’re not in work. This will help you to really make the most of your trip. Conversely, if you’re pressed for time and are flying in and out again the same day, hourly car hire means no worries about public transport without having to hire for an entire day.
