After landing in Glasgow Airport and collecting your hire vehicle we know that you will be excited to get on your way and explore everything that Glasgow and Scotland have to offer!

If you are not familiar with driving in the United Kingdom, please remember that you must drive on the left hand side of the road. 

Taking advantage of hiring one of our GPS units is a fantastic idea to ensure that you arrive at your required destination with ease and without any delay.

The rules of the road

Of course this list is not exhaustive  (we encourage you to read up on the local information in regards to the rules and regulations of the road prior to travel). 

The number one rule whilst in the UK has to be (as mentioned above) sticking to the left-hand side of the road.

There are also many roundabouts throughout not only Scotland but the whole of the UK. Once you have got your head around them they are relatively easy to manoeuvre and they really do help to keep the flow of traffic running smoothly (most of the time).

Please take care whilst approaching a roundabout to get into the correct lane for the direction that you wish to take (left,straight ahead or right) and remember that you must always give way to the driver on your right.

When travelling on motorways or dual carriageways, the speed limit is 70 MPH (112 KMH) and 60MPH (97KMH) on single carriageways.The speed limit outside of Glasgow will range from 40 MPH-50MPH (64KMH-80KMH) and 30MPH (48KMH) in built- up areas unless stated otherwise.

For your own safety please obey the local traffic rules and speed restrictions.

If you should require any emergency assistance whilst here with us in Glasgow, the UK emergency services can be contacted by dialling 999 for police, fire fighters and medical services.

If your medical enquiry is not urgent but you need advice you can also call 101 to speak to a medical professional.

How do I get to the rental location after arriving at Glasgow Airport?

We operate a complimentary shuttle service.

Once you arrive at Glasgow Airport please call us on 0141 433 8268 and we will send a driver to come and collect you from our designated Pick up point.

In order to get to Car Park 2:

  • Please exit the terminal building using the door between Tesco (to your left) and Starbucks (to your right)
  • Once you are outside please look across the road and you will see Car Park 2 clearly (across the road to your right) 
  • Please proceed to safely cross the road and walk through the entrance of Car Park 2
  • Once inside of Car Park 2 you will see several red car parking spaces labelled 'Express Pick up Point'

Please wait here until you see our driver who will transport you from the airport to our office.

The journey should take no longer than 5 minutes.

If you are travelling with anybody who may have trouble accessing the shuttle bus please make us aware so that we can send an alternative vehicle to collect you from the Pick Up point.

What personal identification do I need to bring with me to be able to rent a vehicle?

A full list of our terms and conditions can be found here.

Mandatory documentation will include:

  1. A full and valid driving license (please not that exclusions do apply)
  2. If you have a UK driving license you must bring your DVLA check code
  3. A valid Passport or a utility bill / bank statement (dated within the last 3 months)
  4. A valid credit card (in your name)
  5. Your booking voucher
Why do I need a DVLA check code if I have a UK driving license?

As of the 8th June 2015 the DVLA ruled that the paper counter part to the UK license was null and void. 

Instead you must now visit and retrieve a one use code to allow us access to view a digital version of your license counterpart, as if you have any endorsements listed this may effect you eligibility to rent a vehicle.

Failure to provide us with this code will unfortunately mean that we cannot release a vehicle to you.

Can I make amendments to my reservation?

Of course you can!

If your reservation is directly through ourselves simply put your request in writing and email us at [email protected]

We will always try our best to assist you.

If you have reserved through a third party you may have to enquire about a modification through the third party themselves.

Can I make a reservation and pay if I am not the main driver?

Of course you can!

There is no restriction on who can pay for the rental however on arrival at our rental location we must pre-authorise a security hold against a credit card in the name of the main driver.

If the credit card is not in the name of the main driver it will not be accepted.

Which payment cards do you accept?

At Green Motion Glasgow Airport we accept all major credit cards including: VISA, Mastercard and American Express.

Debit cards can be accepted for the payment of the rental but cannot be accepted to be used for our security pre-authorisation.

We unfortunately do not accept any pre-paid cards or cards that are non-embossed.

We also do not accept any payments in cash.

We must ask you to note that if we are unable to secure a pre-authorisation of funds against a credit card in the name of the main driver we will not be able to release a vehicle to you.

Do I need to leave a deposit when collecting my vehicle?

Yes you do.

In all cases the main driver will be required to allow us to perform a pre-authorisation of funds against a credit card in their name.

The pre-authorisation amount will be dependent on the level of excess of the vehicle reserved and the driver's age and level of driving experience but typically ranges from £200 GBP -£1500 GBP.

If you have any questions in relation to this please feel free to contact us directly so that we can clarify.

How long does it take to release the pre-authorisation?

The pre-authorisation is released by ourselves at midnight on your day of return as long as the vehicle is returned in the same condition.

The amount of time before these funds are available to yourself is then dependent on your banking provider as the funds will be with them.

Typically most pre-authorisations are released within 5-14 working days of the return date.

If you cannot access your funds or you feel that the pre-authorisation has not been released back into your account in the prescribed time period, we urge you to contact your banking provider for further information as Green Motion Glasgow Airport have no jurisdiction in regards to this matter.

Can I reduce my excess responsibility?

Of course you can!

We offer a range of protection options to suit your needs and to provide you with peace of mind during your rental.

Whether you wish to reduce your excess down to zero, an interim amount or even leave it as it is but cover the tyres and windscreen in particular, we have an option to cater to your needs!

What happens if my flight is delayed?

In the event that your flight is delayed please endeavour to contact us directly on 0141 433 8268 or via email on [email protected]

We actively monitor your inbound flight as long as you provide us with your flight number in the reservation stage and we will hold your reservation for up to 2.5 hours.

It is crucial that you establish contact with us if you feel your delay will mean that you will be arriving more than 2.5 hours late.

Failure to contact us will result in the cancellation of your reservation, however if you are in contact with us we will honour the reservation for you; as long as it still falls within our opening hours.

What happens if I arrive/return at the rental office outside of office hours?

Unfortunately without prior notice, there is not much we can do to facilitate your requirements if you arrive at our office outside of our hours of operation.

If for example your flight is delayed, it is crucial that you establish contact with us and we will advise on whether or not an out of hours service can be offered to you and the necessary fees that will be applicable.

On return of a vehicle we do not provide an out of hours drop off service unless prior agreement has been made between yourself and a member of the team at location level.

If no prior agreement has been made you must strictly return your vehicle inside of our opening hours when a member of staff is on site to accept the vehicle and the keys.

  • Glasgow Airport
  • Edinburgh Airport
  • East Midlands Airport
  • Leicester Central
  • Leicester North

Returning a vehicle to an alternate location (named in the above list) will result in a one-way fee being applied to your rental.
