Pick upWe arrived at preswick aorport at17.00 there was no one there to collect us...on ur paper work we were told there was a shuttle service provided after 2 hrs of waiting in the cold we tried to call Eurocar and was directed to customer services in England Who knew nothing about our car hire and didnt even know where Preswick was We ending up staying with friends The following day at the eurocar office we were told they closed the office early at 1300 the day before because of bad weather condtions and staff had to get home !!!

Car hire excess insurance in Ayr

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Ayr car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Ayr.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Ayr car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Ayr

  • It’s a great idea to opt for car hire in Ayr when you’re visiting this town on the south-west coast of Scotland. One of the best reasons for this is that you can visit landmarks in the area around the birthplace of Robert Burns, like Culzean Castle and Country Park, which is 12 miles to the south of the town. There’s also the Dalgarven Mill Museum of Country Life and Costume. If you’re travelling with your family, the Heads of Ayr Farm Park is a kids’ paradise with its petting zoo.
  • Flying to the city and getting a hire car in Ayr couldn’t be easier. It’s only 4 miles from the centre of town to Glasgow Prestwick International Airport. After you’ve left the baggage carousel, whether you’ve arrived in the international arrivals hall or the domestic one, follow the signs to the covered walkways leading to the parking areas, and you’ll spot the signs for Avis, Budget, Europcar and plenty of others right there. It’s only a short walk from both terminals.
  • By the standards of a big urban centre, you’ll find the driving generally sedate in Ayr, once you’ve left the busy A77 trunk road that you’ll use to reach the town itself. You’d be advised to slow down when you’re in Ayr and its residential streets, as the rainy weather can cause plenty of potholes, which the local council fixes regularly. So be aware of roadworks when you’re driving in these areas as well. An example would be the Belmont Area, specifically the Meadowpark thoroughfare, Merkland Road and Carrick Avenue.
  • One thing you’ll be accustomed to even if you’ve never been to Ayr before is the inevitable rush hour, even in a smaller town like this. Congestion comes to its peak at similar times to those in your typical UK city, between 08:00 and 09:00 in the mornings and later in the day from 16:00 to 17:00 and tailing off about half an hour later. The busiest roads to avoid during these time are Main Road, especially where it joins Low Road and High Road. The High Street in the busy city centre is also a flashpoint for gridlock.
  • Book your car hire in Ayr at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact car hires in Ayr are around 71% cheaper than other car types, on average
