KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Kirkcaldy

  • When you get a car hire in Kirkcaldy, you get more flexibility compared to travelling on an alternative mode of transport like a bus or a train. This is because you can leave at a time that’s better for you rather than relying on schedules of public transport. For example, if you wanted to go to Dundee, you can get there in about 50min by car, and whilst taking a train takes a similar time, you won’t have the freedom to leave when you want.
  • Edinburgh Airport (EDI) has a range of car hire companies that you can pick from, making it easy to get your ideal vehicle. For instance, you can get a car from SIXT, which is easy to locate near the terminal. Once you’ve arrived, you need to exit the airport and pass the bus stops. There is then a covered walkway which you continue to walk through, via the Airport Plaza. At the end of the walkway, you’ll see the ‘Car Rental’ sign showing where the SIXT branch is located.
  • When you opt for car hire in Kirkcaldy, you will see that the town is busy with tourists and those on day trips, especially on weekends. With lots of people in the town centre, you need to be extra vigilant for people crossing the roads in areas which aren’t marked as pedestrian crossings. There are also a lot of cyclists in Scotland, with Kirkcaldy being no different. Make sure you regularly check your mirrors when driving, especially if you’re at a roundabout or intersection.
  • When you get a Kirkcaldy car hire, you’ll notice that the centre of the town can get very busy with traffic, especially during rush hour when lots of people commute to Edinburgh for work. This tends to be from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. So, if you want to avoid busy roads, it’s wise to not drive during these times. One road that can get very busy is Victoria Road, which is one of the streets that connect the town to the A921. If possible, try to avoid this road and find an alternative route.
  • Book your car hire in Kirkcaldy at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Jan 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Car was very good, clean and comfortable. No issue with the car.

Cons:

When I returned the car, the assistant manager went straight to one tyre and pointed out a couple of dents in the tyre wall that he claims I must have caused as the tyres were in perfect condition before the rental. When I told him that the pre-rental check of the car only included the bodywork and that the guy mentioned that damage to the wheels was normal and didn't count, he said he'd check with the guy that I picked the car up from. The guy was in the back office and didn't come out but the assistant manager assured me that I was invited to inspect the tyres beforehand. The was simply not true. I was charged £300 to replace the tyre. Outrageous.

We had to wait a couple of hours for the car and then had to be shuttled to another location to pick it up....staff were very friendly and helpful, however.

Customer service was awful, rude, aggressive, arrogant and unhelpful. The car I received was 4 years old and I took 61 photos of dents and scratches that were on the car prior to me driving it. No handover, just thrown the keys. Tyres were under-inflated, brakes were grinding and interior had been cleaned, but drivers seat was dirty. Drop off was a better experience, that particular person was not there. First time using Europcar, and last. There needs to be a complete overhaul of the customer service experience and their vehicles. Would definitely not recommend.
