Airport Car Rental
Rent a car at Glasgow Airport and head into the city! Check out museums like the Glasgow Science Center, the Police Museum, St. Mungo’s Museum of Religious Life and Art, the Riverside Museum, which has a collection of land vehicles and marine vessels, and the Hunterian Museum, which features exhibits of scientific instruments, coins and medals from Scotland’s Roman times, and even dinosaur fossils found in the area.
Get a feel for the city’s varied architecture by visiting Glasgow Cathedral, the City Chambers, Clyde Auditorium, and the Willow Tea Rooms. For a day outdoors, the Botanic Gardens, Kelvingrove Park, and Glasgow Park are all wonderful choices. And make sure to drive your rental to Fossil Grove, a truly special place located in Victoria Park—here you’ll see the last of a forest that’s more than 300 million years old. Top off your day with a true Scottish meal of Scotch pie or haggis with tatties and neeps (you can even find a vegan version).
Glasgow’s a great destination, but there’s so much more to explore! With a longer term rental car deal you can visit nearby Edinburgh, see the Scottish countryside and head all the way to the Highlands, or drive to nearby northern England. You can even pick up your rental car at Glasgow Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure today!
Glasgow Airport is also known as Abbotsinch Airport and Port-adhair Eadar-nàiseanta Ghlaschu.

- Edinburgh (88 km / 55 mi). The capital of Scotland is one of the most picturesque (and most visited) cities in all of the United Kingdom. Attractions include the beautiful Edinburgh Old Town, the National Museum of Scotland, and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. Many nice beaches are also located within the city limits.
- Prestwick (61 km / 38 mi). A small town best known as the location of the secondary Glasgow Airport, Prestwick nonetheless has its fair share of delights. The attractions include a number of high-quality golf courses, the Shaw Monument, and the St. Nicholas Church.
- Manchester (352 km / 219 mi). Best known as an industrial center and the home of two famous English football teams, Manchester is also a city of science, arts, and culture.
