Car hire in Dundee
Hiring a car in Dundee
Dundee is a city that has long been overlooked in Scotland, overshadowed by the larger and more widely known Glasgow and Edinburgh. But that doesn't mean that the Tayside city, located ideally on the northern banks of the River Tay, doesn't have something to offer, both in its location, which is perfect for those who want the chance to see a good mix of Scottish locations, and its own quirky attractions.
Known as the City of Discovery, named after the famous ship that Captain Scott sailed into the Antarctic, Dundee is a modern and vibrant location with a diverse culture. Locals and students come together to give the city centre a charm and freshness that's hard to find in most big cities, and with an eye on both the historical importance of its past and the potential it has for the future, Dundee really ticks all the boxes when it comes to being the perfect place to visit for those seeking out something just a little different.
What you need to know
Dundee city centre is unlike most in that everything is not located in just one centralised area. There's museums, shops and other sights to see spread out from the riverside locations all the way into the heart of the city itself, and the best way to make the most of these is to ensure you have a car hired for when you arrive. Dundee is also so well located, with Perth, Fife and Edinburgh just short drives away, that a car means opening the door to Scotland and truly embracing the notion of discovery.

Where to pick up your car
If you're flying to Dundee, the chances are you will either be arriving at Dundee Airport (DND) or Edinburgh Airport (EDN). When flying into the former, you will be able to pick up your car in Dundee city centre at the many car hire offices available there, with most firms offering you a meet and greet service that sees a representative collect you on arrival at the airport and take you to the office at your convenience, making the process of collecting your car incredibly easy.
When you arrive at Edinburgh Airport, on the other hand, you can collect your car at the airport itself and be on the road to Dundee within minutes. Just follow the signs when you get to the arrivals hall and you will find the car hire desks located just outside the main terminal entrance beside the road, making it convenient to collect your car and get on the road in no time at all.
