Good to know when hiring a 4x4 in Scotland

What documents are needed to hire a 4x4 in Scotland?

You need a valid driving license and a year’s driving experience. If there is no photo on your driving license you will also need a photo ID when you collect your vehicle.   

Can I choose what type of 4x4 I will get?

When you collect your 4x4 you might not get the exact model you selected, but one with similar specs. The SIXT app allows you to choose a vehicle 30 minutes before collection.  

How can I pay for my 4x4 vehicle hire?

When you book at SIXT online you can pay upfront for your car hire or you can book when you collect the car. Both credit and some debit cards are accepted.  

What are the benefits of hiring a 4x4 in Scotland?

Room for all

Hire an all-wheel drive vehicle in Scotland to make room for passengers and all the luggage you might need for mountain adventures such as camping equipment or ski gear. 

Luxurious comfort

For a Scottish road trip, the luxury interior of a 4x4, including heated seats, extra legroom and built-in sat nav can make long drives fly by.  

Modern technology

The security of going on a holiday in a 4x4 lies in its modern technology such as keyless-go and the lane assist system that allows you to monitor your position on unfamiliar roads. 

Flexible hire periods

Whether you are staying in Scotland for a weekend or more than a week there are flexible hire options including daily, weekly or longer-term rentals.  

Explore Scotland with your 4x4 hire

4x4 hire in Scotland is an ideal way to explore. Why not add optional extras to make your journey more comfortable with an additional driver or a child seat. Explore Edinburgh before taking the road up towards Aberdeen and making your way inland to the Cairngorms National Park. We recommend taking a trip into the Scottish Highlands with the breathtaking contrasts of rugged mountains and the vast lochs that reflect the light.
