KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Stirling

  • There are several important roads in Stirling that are crucial for getting around, including the M9 Motorway, the A9 and the A84. The M9 runs through Stirling and provides connections to other major cities in Scotland, while the A9 and A84 are important local routes connecting Stirling to nearby towns and villages. A good map or GPS system and attention to road signs and markings are essential for navigating a Stirling car hire through these roads.
  • The legal limit for blood alcohol concentration (BAC) for drivers in Stirling is 0.08%, or 80mg of alcohol in 100 ml of blood. It is illegal to drive if your BAC is above this limit. It is important to note that even if a driver's BAC is below the legal limit, they might still face charges for drunk driving if they are deemed unfit to drive due to alcohol consumption. It's recommended to always err on the side of caution and avoid driving after consuming alcohol and to find alternative transportation options, such as a designated driver or public transportation.
  • It's important to drive with caution on all roads but there are specific roads that require more attention. Some roadways that require extra caution when driving a cheap car hire in Stirling include the A907, the A91 and the B998. The A907 and A91 are important local routes that can be busy and congested, especially during peak travel times. The B998 is a narrow, winding road that can be challenging to navigate, particularly for larger vehicles. To navigate these roads safely, it's vital to drive slowly and cautiously.
  • 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.

Car hire insurance in Stirling

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Stirling 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 Stirling.

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 Stirling car hire.
