Car hire excess insurance in Stirling

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

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 Stirling 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 Stirling.


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 Stirling car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Stirling

  • The city of Stirling is the geographical bridge between the Scottish Lowlands and the Highlands, playing a pivotal role in much of the country’s history. With car hire in Stirling, you can explore both regions with a freedom and flexibility to explore towns and villages beyond the reach of public transport. Start your escapades with a visit to the city of Glasgow, 27 miles south along the M80, as a warm-up for the lengthy trip to Inverness in the heart of the Highlands, 143 miles north via the A9.
  • If you decide on Edinburgh Airport (EDI) for your flight to Scotland, you can obtain a car hire in Stirling from the airport’s Car Hire Centre before setting off on the 30-mile drive to your destination. Among the providers servicing the airport are Thrifty, Alamo and Sixt. To find their desks, just exit the terminal building from Domestic Arrivals and follow the directions to the Multi Storey Car Park. You’ll see the car hire village at the end of the covered walkway.
  • The city of Stirling has a large number of intracity commuters, which means you can expect a significant amount of vehicular, pedestrian and cycle traffic on the motorways during morning and evening rush hours. Craigs Roundabout is a key point for congestion, as is the huge M9/A84 interchange west of Raploch district for inbound and outbound flow to the city centre. The area around University of Stirling is an active pedestrian/cycle zone at any time during the university year.
  • If you want to escape peak rush hour traffic, avoid major roads leading in and out of the city centre from 07:00–09:00 and 16:00–18:30. The early afternoon period from 13:00-15:00 is active with lunch and retail shoppers, which will also cause delays near school and retail zones. Stirling attracts many visitors especially during the summer months between May and September, so if you intend to visit during this period, expect a heavy increase of overall traffic to impede your progress as you drive around the city limits.

At the city’s public car parks (pay and display) tariffs range from £1.20 to £1.70 per hour. Blue Badge holders are allowed to park for free at any public parking zone without limit.
