KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Dundee

  • If you are flying into the city and using cheap car hire in Dundee, two nearby airports are Dundee Airport (DND) and Edinburgh Airport (EDI), with Dundee Airport just under 2 miles from the Dundee city centre. You will find numerous options to hire a car in the Dundee city centre. From Edinburgh Airport, which is located roughly 55 miles out of Dundee, you can hire a car for your visit from several car hire companies, such as Sixt, Hertz and Avis; they’re  located a short walk from the terminal building. The drive from Edinburgh Airport to Dundee takes approximately 1 hour.
  • If you are planning to hire a car in Dundee and travel with your kids, it is crucial to keep in mind that UK law mandates the use of a child car seat for children at all times. This rule applies to children up to the age of 12 or those under 135 centimetres tall. Children older than 12 or taller than 135 cm must wear a car seat belt by law. When choosing a booster seat for your hire car, you can use your child's height or weight as a reference.
  • The minimum age to hire a car in Scotland is 21 years old, and if you are under 26, then you will likely have to pay a young driver's fee. When hiring a car in Dundee, make sure that you have documentation to prove you are over the age of 25. If you are aged 25 or over, you can hire Dundee SUVs and vans with no surcharge. Keep in mind when hiring a car in Dundee that you’ll need a valid driver's licence, a valid ID and a credit or debit card. Always check with the hiring company in advance to check their requirements.
  • Hire a car and discover everything Dundee has to offer with the flexibility to choose when, where and how you want to do it. Car hire in Dundee gives you the option to explore the areas surrounding the city while you’re there. Sites like Powrie Castle and Broughty Ferry beach are only a short drive away. You can even take the time to travel further afield. Edinburgh and Aberdeen are reachable in approximately 1h 30min and you get to take in the unforgettable Scottish countryside on the way.
  • There are multiple car hire firms located in and around the centre of Dundee. Arnold Clark, Enterprise and Hertz all house an extensive collection of quality vehicles to choose from and you’ll be on the road in no time. If you’re coming from Dundee airport, companies can provide a shuttle service to their site in the city. This takes around 15min and you can pick up your Dundee car hire from there.
  • Dundee is a relatively small town with roads that can be narrow and a little tricky to navigate. There is the option to add a sat nav to your booking to help guide you through the one-way systems and avoid the central pedestrian zone. That being said, roads in Dundee are generally quieter than larger cities like Glasgow or Edinburgh. Being a coastal city, the wind can be strong (especially on the Tay Road Bridge) and the weather unpredictable, which is something to bear in mind when choosing your car hire in Dundee.
  • Thankfully, Dundee boasts some of the fastest moving traffic in the UK during rush hour, yet you still may want to avoid Kingsway during peak periods of 8:00–9:00 and 17:00–18:00. The winter season is usually cold and often brings ice and heavy snow to the roads around Dundee. Outside the city centre and up in the highlands can be particularly hazardous thanks to steep hills and irregular use.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Dundee for £33 or less
  • Book your car hire in Dundee at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Dundee are around 25% more expensive than airport locations on average

FAQs about car hire in Dundee

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Dundee?

    If you plan on driving in and around the city, a compact economy vehicle will suit the narrow streets and city traffic while being lighter on fuel. For adventures further afield with the family in tow, a sturdy 4x4 could be better for comfort and safety, especially in wet weather and snow. On business trips, opt for a sleek saloon.

  • What’s the speed limit in Dundee?

    Certain areas in Dundee, such as The Glens and Douglas, are strict 20mph zones, so watch out for signs when you’re driving in the centre to avoid an unwelcome fine.

The national limit on motorways and dual carriageways is 70mph, although you’ll have to keep an eye out for average speed checks, which are common throughout Scotland.

Our original car, Peugeot 2008 was mechanically faulty. The clutch broke and caused the car the inability to move 15/20 minutes after picking up the vehicle. Lots of smoke etc. We were on a motorway at the time, No verge so a dangerous area to stop, we called recovery and after an hour a tow truck was sent, We returned to our pick point and eventually were given a new vehicle, We are from overseas. This did cause some distress to me ( the driver). Also having to pay £65 to return the car to a different location a half hour away was I thought an unnecessary expense.

I booked the car through your site weeks ago. When I got there after traveling all day, they had no cars! The agent said that Kayak does not communicate with them regarding availability. This is unconscionable. My family and I were stranded in the middle of the City with all of our luggage. You will be hearing more. Fix your business model for goodness sake otherwise you will fail. This behavior is appalling. Kayak again? Hell no!

Car hire insurance in Dundee

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Dundee car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Dundee.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Dundee car hire.
