Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Ayr car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Ayr.
Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Ayr car rental.

While the traffic can be busy at times you shouldn’t have any trouble choosing a suitable Ayr car hire option. A moderately sized saloon will be appropriate, unless you’re alone and prefer something smaller and more compact, like an economical city car. However, given that you’re in a picturesque corner of Scotland you may be staying in the town and spending your days exploring the surrounding scenery. In this case, anything from an SUV or MPV to a luxury cruiser will do you well. If you’re travelling in a group, then a people carrier would be a good choice.

On the A77 that you’ll use to explore the outlying areas, you’ll be free to travel at 70mph.
