Top tips for renting a car in Perth

  • Many travellers consider the Scottish city of Perth to be a hidden gem of the United Kingdom. The city centre and surrounding area is home to a number of historical and interesting sights that are conveniently experienced with car hire in Perth. For example, you can take a peek into Scotland’s rich whisky heritage with a trip to Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery, which sits 30 miles from Perth, while music lovers can visit the oldest family record shop in Scotland at Concorde Music in the heart of the city.
  • For access to air travel from Perth, the closest airport is Dundee Airport (DND), which is roughly 20 miles or a 25min drive away. However, the airport at Dundee is regional and mainly provides for domestic travel, so those with international connections may need to travel further afield to Edinburgh Airport (EDI), 41 miles away, or Glasgow Airport (GLA), 68 miles away. Car hire companies can be found in the Arrivals terminal of each airport, with further branches located in Perth city centre.
  • With car hire in Perth, you can enjoy a Scottish city that is bursting with activity, from parks and rivers to galleries and cafes. This, however, means you need to pay attention when driving around the centre: plenty of roads are pedestrianized, one-way only, or otherwise busy with plenty of shoppers and revellers enjoying everything Perth has to offer.
  • As with the rest of the UK, morning rush hour (08:00 to 10:00), evening rush hour (18:00 to 19:00), and the school runs (around 08:00 and 16:00) are likely to produce congested roads, so be aware when planning your journey. Also, Scotland is often subjected to extreme weather, especially in the winter, so be prepared for snowy days if you are planning on booking Perth car hire from November to February.

  • Book your car hire in Perth at least 5 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • The windy and historic streets of Perth city centre are more easily navigated with a compact car, offering enough power to get you quickly from A to B while also being small enough to drive and park with ease. However, if you are planning on experiencing Scotland’s rugged countryside, perhaps a larger vehicle such as an estate or a 4x4 would be more appropriate for your journey.

  • The centre of Perth is largely 30mph, however the local council is in the process of trialling and implementing a number of 20mph zones to ensure that the city is as safe as possible. Always pay attention to road signs, as these speed limits can sometimes be temporary. Larger roads often have a speed limit of 40mph, while motorways implement the national speed limit, although some of these also have variable speed limits so always pay attention.

  • Luckily, the price of petrol in Scotland is generally cheaper than the rest of the UK. The average price for a litre of petrol in Perth is around £1.17, lower than the British national average. Major supermarkets often offer slightly lower prices than independent fuelling posts, however this is compensated for with other services such as specialised fuel or electric car charging stations. Local knowledge suggests that you should make sure you fuel up before a long drive, in order to avoid petrol stations on motorways where prices are slightly elevated.

  • Perth offers a number of on-street parking options, which vary depending on your zone: all zones offer up to 1h for around £1.30, beyond which Zone 1 is only for short stays while Zones 2 and 3 offer long-term parking of up to 10h for around £10.70. Dedicated car parks can be found around the city centre, such as Scott Street Car Park, Canal Street Car Park, Charles Street Car Park and Leonard Street Car Park. Fortunately, these offer a simple pricing structure of around £1.30 per hour up to a limit of 4h.
