 Aberdeen Car Rental Mini Guide

Aberdeen is situated at the mouth of two major Scottish rivers, the Dee and the Don, in the north east of Scotland and is a thriving port.  Although the city is far north it has good travel connections and Aberdeen Airport is only 12km from the city centre making a great collection point for your rental car.  There are a number of major roads which you can take by hire car into the city with the A90 being the main route from the north and south into the city.

Aberdeen Railway Station is on the main UK rail network.  It has direct connections to many major cities such as Edinburgh, Glasgow and  London.  A ferry service operates to the Orkney and Shetland Islands, so you may wish to take advantage of our one way car rental packages.
