Aberdeen Airport

Airport Car Rental

Located quite a bit north of Edinburgh and Glasgow, Scotland’s two largest cities and most popular tourist destinations, Aberdeen can be an equally fun place to visit. Well known for its architecture, the Granite City also boasts some quality cultural institutions and a lovely North Sea coastline. These are three of its most interesting attractions:

  • Union Street. Speaking of the aforementioned granite architecture, there’s no better place to enjoy the highly original style than Union Street, one of Aberdeen’s main thoroughfares. The granite stretch is about a mile (1.6 km) long, and while not every house is built in the exact same manner, many of the city’s most famous buildings can be found here.
  • Aberdeen Beach. Not many cities of its size can be found this far north anywhere in the world, but Aberdeen’s cold climate somehow makes its coastline even more attractive. The city’s main public beach is always busy and even welcomes brave surfers during the summer months. Visitors enjoy following the 4 km (2.5 mile) long Esplanade that largely runs parallel to the coast to take in the views of the sea or visiting sites like the Donmouth Wildlife Reserve at its northern end.
  • Aberdeen Maritime Museum. There are several great museums and galleries in Aberdeen, but if you had to pick just one, the best choice would probably be the Maritime Museum. Explaining the proud port city’s long and intimate relationship with the North Sea, the largely interactive museum covers such varied subjects as commerce, climate, and culture.

FAQ

Do I need an International Driving Permit or will my French driver’s license be sufficient?
If the driver’s license is not written in English, you may need to carry an International Driving Permit along with your original driver’s license. Be sure to check the rental conditions to see for sure before booking.
Are any additional payments required to modify my reservation?
Discover Cars does not charge modification fees for changes to the reservation made at least 48 hours before picking up your car. But any changes, such as a change to the pickup or drop-off location, car group, rental period, or details of the driver, may affect the rental price and cause it to differ from the price to change.
Will I receive the exact same car as the one I booked?
Reservations are based on a category, not specific models (thus the wording “or similar”). The images shown are merely illustrative. In some cases, you may book a car for which the specific make and model is guaranteed. This will be indicated in the search results.
What coverage is included in the initial price?
Your rental rate includes basic coverage including a Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) theft protection, and third-party liability, though there will be an excess that you are liable for. You can purchase additional coverage to lower the excess or our Full Coverage which will reimburse you up to 3,000EUR for any part of the excess you are charged by the rental company.
