Experience Paisley with your rental car

Most attractions in Paisley and around this beautiful town can be easily explored with a rental car. With Driveboo, you can compare different car rental offers and book your rental car directly online. The administrative center of the beautiful Scottish county of Renfrewshire, Paisley enjoys a peaceful location in the western part of central Lowlands. As it can’t really boast the status of a city, it is often referred to as Scotland’s largest town.

Despite its inconspicuous character, Paisley offers a wide variety of interesting tourist attractions and can be a great starting point for many golf courses in the area. It also has plenty to offer when it comes to cultural events - it was not without reason that it bid for the title of UK City of Culture in 2021.

What is the best place to rent a car in Paisley?

In Paisley, you won’t struggle to find a car hire company. However, the most convenient way to find a rental car is to pick it up at the airport.

Those who travel to Paisley can choose between two airports. From Glasgow Airport (GLA) is just a short distance to the town center. However, if you are planning to embark on some sightseeing along the way, you can also choose Edinburgh Airport (EDI). The airport lies 50 miles from Paisley. The choice of rental cars at those airports is extensive, but have no fear! With Driveboo you will get a detailed overview of all the top offers and vehicles beforehand.

Car hire Paisley - What is the best time to travel?

The surroundings of Paisley are equally beautiful as the tourist attractions that can be found in it. There exist plenty of opportunities when it comes to outdoor activities. It is best to travel to Paisley from spring to summer as the temperatures in summer reach an average of 18°C. However, the weather in Scotland is extremely unpredictable. During one day, you can encounter spells of sun, rain, wind, and mist.

What about the insurance of my rental car in Paisley?

In Scotland, each rental car has to be covered by civil liability insurance that is valid throughout the Member States of the EU. Companies should include the price of civil liability insurance in the price of your rental car. You can additionally buy non-compulsory insurance covering, for example, acts of vandalism, accidents, or injury.

Most importantly, you need to read the terms and conditions of the rental agreement carefully so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not you need additional insurance.
