When hiring a budget hatchback, it is definitely worth saving on insurance deposit (franchise). Deposits on small cars in Great Britain vary from 100 to 1.000 euro/dollars. Check the rental conditions of each car in your selection to find a vehicle with a minimum deposit.

If your routes in Great Britain are foreseen to pass through hilly areas or mountains, it is not recommended to consider very small cars for rental. Their engines are usually insufficient for a confident driving on the roads with long or steep climbs.

At the rental office in Glasgow, consider to take a 'Breakdown Assistance' package or ask an officer for a contact data to use in case of a vehicle breakdown. Cheap cars are sometimes unpredictable in operation.

Upon receipt of the rental invoice, please check that all the information, as well as the final payment amount do match the data in your voucher. wishes you a safe and great trip to Glasgow!

Driving Advices for Great Britain – Traffic Regulations and Road Usage Peculiarities
Previous hints
The A30 highway is considered the most “unsuccessful” road in summer. It connects two popular resort towns - Devon and Cornwall. In summer the entire 457 km long highway is one big traffic jam.
Traffic is often very slow on the M1 highway that connects London and Leeds. Traffic jams can appear at any time of year on this road, the length of which is 322 kilometers.
The snowfall in winter is the real “national disaster” for the British. The reason for this is the fact that snow covers road markings, and it is almost impossible to drive without them. To the pleasure of local motorists, it snows very rarely in the UK.
