When you book your car hire in Aberdeen, you can select from a range of vehicle categories to find just the right car hire for your budget and your needs. There are roomy estates and comfy saloons for family travel. If a dynamic drive is your choice, then opt for a sports car or convertible, while 4x4s are ideal for exploring the countryside.

Because we understand that car hire requirements are different for everyone, we also offer a host of add ons from which you can select. Book a child seat to keep your little one safe, a Sat Nav to make sure that you don't get lost, or winter tyres if you are travelling on Scotland's snowy roads. One way or long term hire deals, breakdown cover and a vehicle collection or delivery service can also be arranged when you book your car rental in Aberdeen. Upgrade your insurance with loss damage waiver, unlimited mileage, or the addition of an extra driver - ideal if you are touring and don't want to leave all the driving to one person.

Traffic Information back to top

The city is served by a network of well-maintained roads, all clearly signed. From the airport, take the A96 into the city centre. The A90, which is notorious for the number of speed cameras in use, is the main route north or south. The west of the city is served by the A93, which can be severely affected by snow in the winter. Major roads are gritted in cold weather, but away from the main routes, you should use snow tyres and drive with care. Snow gates are used to close mountain roads during heavy snowfalls, with online information regularly updated. Parking in the city centre includes on-street metered parking, and pay and display carparks. Considerable savings can be made by pre-booking. Two Park and Ride sites are also popular, particularly at the weekend.

Aberdeen's Long History of Industry and Traditional Way of Life

Nicknamed Granite City, because of the locally quarried granite used for building, Aberdeen rose to international renown when oil deposits were discovered offshore more than 50 years ago. Also known as The Oil Capital of Europe, it boasts the world's largest heliport and a substantial infrastructure supporting the oil industry. Prior to this, Aberdeen's reputation was built on its trawler industry. It offers the third largest shopping experience in Scotland, with Union Square proving popular as significant retail area in the city. With a substantial student population, the night life is varied, catering for a wide range of musical tastes. While in Aberdeen, why not try an Aberdeen Buttery, or rowie, widely available in bakeries. It is a local recipe, similar to a pancake and served cold with butter and jam. Situated on the coast between the Rivers Dee and Don, Aberdeen has a sandy beach, and is ideal as a centre from which to tour the Grampian Mountains.
