Top tips for hiring a car at Glasgow Prestwick airport

  • If you are flying into Glasgow and want to explore the west of Scotland it is a good idea to book car hire at Glasgow Prestwick Airport. Once you have collected your car, you’ll be free to explore the city of Glasgow, which lies just under 45min north of the airport, as well as the surrounding region. While there are no car hire companies located within the airport building, the closest ones are Arnold Clark, which is just under a mile away, and Europcar, around two miles away; both provide a free shuttle service from the airport to the car hire company where you can collect your vehicle.
  • In order to collect your car hire at Glasgow Prestwick Airport you can inform the car hire company of your flight number and arrival time, and they will tell you where you can meet the shuttle transfer. Alternatively, in the case of Arnold Clark you will be given a free phone number by the company when you book your car. After landing and collecting your luggage, you can make your way to the public phones in the arrivals hall and phone the company, giving your name and they will tell you where to meet the shuttle transfer.
  • A good alternative to public transport, car hire at Glasgow Prestwick Airport will allow you to start exploring the region in your own time. The airport, located near the town of Ayr is close to the coast of Scotland and by hiring a car you can explore some of the towns, beaches and golf courses close by.Towns such as Ayr and Troon are easy to explore once you have collected your car hire before you head up toward Glasgow itself.
  • Returning your car to the relevant location is easy as the car hire companies that supply Glasgow Prestwick Airport have shuttle buses that will take you to your flight once you have finished your trip and returned your vehicle. You just need to allow around 30min, during office hours, to return your car to the car hire office and get the free shuttle transfer back to the airport to catch your flight. Some companies, such as Europcar are set up for out-of-hours returns but there will be an extra charge for this and you will need to check times with the company when you book.
  • Book your car hire at Glasgow Prestwick airport at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car at Glasgow Prestwick airport

  • Where are the car hire companies located at Glasgow Prestwick Airport?

Cons:

We 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 !!! No one informed us even though i had given a contact number when i placed my order ...not happy customers
