Pros:

We were picked up at the airport (you have to call them and they will be there within minutes). The collection process was really quick and easy. The staff was excellent and showed us quickly the specifics of the car (which by the way was upgraded). We were offer onsite to reduce the Excess to 0 or to £100, we chose the latter which was ~£50 extra for the 3 days we rented the vehicle. The drop-off process was very easy and quick too! we got another ride to the airport from there. FYI, they took £300 deposit from the credit card which will be refunded after you return your car and they check everything is OK.

Cons:

All was good!

Pros:

Pickup was easy and convenient.

Cons:

My flight cancelled 10 hours prior to dept. I had to drop the car off at a new airport. I had one hell of a time figuring out how to get a hold of Avis to do this as the internet option told me I had to call someone. It took 30+ minutes to get a note in my res. Not even sure it was done right.

Car collection counter is right within the terminal and car collection is right outside the terminal. That made both collection and drop off very convenient.

The car was great, 48MPG, 6 speed, peppy and comfortable. We put on nearly 900 miles. Pickup was slow, the guy was chatty, very nice, but he had to schmooze with everyone and we were last in the queue. Minor problem, everything else was perfect.

Europcar made us purchase CDW insurance at the desk even though this was provided through our credit card. This almost doubled the cost of our rental but there was nothing we could do about it because we had pre paid the rental cost. Bait and switch and an almost $1000 extra expense.

Excellent experience. The only problem was changing my pickup and dropoff Times, because I prepaid through KAYAK. I suspect at a larger airport, with more cars this would have been easier. The staff tried hard to make my change possible.

Besides being expensive, we told them what time we were dropping the car back off and they never mentioned they’d be closed so we had no shuttle to the airport and we had to walk with all of our baggage from Sixt to the airport on dark unlit streets in a foreign country. Very dissatisfied. They also did not have the car they repeatedly told us they’d have. We reserved a small SUV and they offered us a sedan or a slightly larger SUV. Of course there was an up charge for the suv so we got stuck in a sedan for the trip.

Sixt rental in Inverness airport looked after us very well. The shuttle picked us up at the terminal building, the driver was extremely friendly as were the office staff. The car was good looking, clean and pleasure to drive. They offered me an automatic transmission which I appreciated. Drop-off was straightforward with a key dropbox in the terminal building. Returning the car with a full tank of fuel was tricky as the nearest gas station was some distance away.

Pros:

Drop off was very efficient.

Cons:

There was a 2 fold difference between the amount on the final receipt and the initial estimate. As there are no petrol stations near Edinburgh airport, I had to hand in the car without filling the tank myself and was charged £100 for the fuel ! Give information about nearest petrol station.

Pros:

None

Cons:

Service was poor and filled with sneaky additional charges with little explanation. After paying for full insurance and having a defective front tire to start, they refused to reemburse for the replacement we had to fix during our trip out of pocket. Completely Irrational explanations as to why, $390.00 USD for a 4 day rental is an absurd scam. From the original quoted price of $89 +$150 for full insurance total. Upgrades were given and put on bill and told at desk no additional cost (nav, car upgrade) based on inventory availability after booking in advance, then charged to the final bill. Steer clear of Avis/Budget.

Pros:

The car was clean and functional

Cons:

The pick up process was slow and confusing. We got a flat tire and there was no spare, no patch kit, and Budget was extremely unhelpful throughout the entire process. Ended up having to pay for a tow truck, and a new tire out of my pocket and then upon returning the vehicle, there was no one that was willing to talk to me about the whole experience and just told me to call the customer service line, which is even worse to deal with, and it was just a terrible rental experience all around. The issue with the tire is still unresolved, and I am spending hours trying to get reimbursed, but to no avail. Worst rental experience I have ever had.

Top tips for hiring a car in Inverness

  • It is highly recommended that visitors of Inverness rent a vehicle during their time there. In part, this is because it is a charming city, but really it is because Inverness is the gateway to the Scottish Highlands -- and there is no better way to explore the Highlands than with a car. For instance, Loch Ness, home to the famed monster, is just 23 miles away from Inverness. Additionally, Cairngorm National Park is 30 miles southeast of Inverness.
  • Looking forward to beginning your trip to Inverness? For travelers who plan to pick up a hire car after landing at Inverness Airport, you can find the hire car counters in the airport’s Arrivals Hall and be on your way immediately.
  • Drivers coming from abroad should make sure to remember that it is illegal to drive while using a cellphone in Inverness and throughout Scotland. This also includes using your phone as a navigational device. So play it safe and have your passengers be the guide during your journey in Inverness.
  • Worried about rush hour putting a damper on your trip to Inverness? Fortunately for drivers, the congestion in Inverness is easily avoided. Nonetheless, there is still some traffic during the peak hours of rush hour in the morning from 6:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and in the afternoon from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The downtown core features the vast majority of congestion though, so as long as you avoid it, you should be okay.
  • Book your car hire in Inverness at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Inverness are around 16% cheaper than other car types, on average
