Inverness Train Station is the primary railway station serving the city of Inverness, the capital of the Scottish Highlands. If you're planning to arrive in Inverness by train and then pick up a hire car, here's what you need to know:

Inverness Train Station:

  1. Location: The train station is centrally located on Station Square, right in the heart of Inverness.

  2. Facilities: The station offers facilities such as ticket offices, waiting rooms, restrooms, a café, and a newsagent. It is also equipped with digital information boards and ticket machines.

  3. Connectivity: Inverness Train Station provides connections to major cities such as Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and even direct trains to London. It also serves as a hub for trains heading north to Thurso and Wick, and west to Kyle of Lochalsh.

Collecting a Hire Car:

  1. Car Rental Agencies: We have several car hire suppliers in Inverness, some of which are located close to the train station. Companies such as Europcar, Hertz, Avis, and Enterprise have branches in or near the city centre. It's advisable to book your car rental in advance, especially during peak tourist seasons.

  2. Walking to Car Rental Agencies: Some of our car rental agencies are within walking distance of the train station, making it convenient for those arriving by train. Always check the exact location of your chosen car hire company to ensure it's within a comfortable walking distance if you have luggage.

  3. Documentation: When collecting your hire car, ensure you have a valid driving licence. If you're from outside the UK, you might also require an International Driving Permit (IDP). Always carry your booking confirmation and any other necessary documentation.

Driving in Inverness:

  1. Drive on the Left: As with the rest of the UK, drive on the left side of the road.

  2. City Centre: Being a historic city, some streets in the centre are narrow. Also, due to its compact size, the city can be navigated easily, but it's crucial to be cautious, especially during rush hours.

  3. Parking: There are various parking options in Inverness, including on-street parking (often with meters) and car parks. Always observe parking signs and restrictions.

  4. Exiting the City: The primary roads leading out of Inverness are the A9 (going south towards Perth and north towards Thurso), the A82 (going southwest towards Fort William), and the A96 (going east towards Aberdeen). Ensure you're familiar with your route before setting out.

  5. Weather Conditions: The weather in the Highlands can be changeable. Rain can make roads slippery, and fog can reduce visibility. Always adapt your driving to current weather conditions.

Once you've collected your hire car, you're well-placed to explore the Scottish Highlands and its stunning landscapes, historical sites, and picturesque towns and villages. Safe travels!
