Green Motion Glasgow International Airport

After you’ve safely landed in Glasgow and collected your hire car from Green Motion Glasgow Airport, we know that you will be eager to get your car on the road and start exploring the United Kingdom.

If you are unfamiliar with driving in the United Kingdom, it is important to remember that you must drive on the left hand side of the road. We also recommend that you consider hiring a GPS (SatNav) to ensure that you arrive at your destination with speed and accuracy.

Enjoy your car hire in Glasgow

If this is your first time driving a car in Glasgow, our advice is to stay calm and take your time. As already mentioned, remember to drive on the left. We also recommend for your own peace of mind to consider hiring a GPS to ensure you can navigate around Glasgow with ease (ask at the rental counter for details).

There are many roundabouts throughout the UK, they are actually relatively easy to manoeuvre around (once you get your head around them) and they help to keep the flow of traffic running smoothly. There are two key things to remember when approaching a roundabout: get in the correct lane for the direction you are want to drive (left, straight or right) and always give way to the driver on your right.

When travelling on the motorways or dual carriageways, the speed limit is 70 mp/h (112 km/h) and 60 mp/h (97 km/h) on single carriageways. The speed limit outside the city ranges from 40 mp/h (64 km/h) to 50 mp/h (80km/h) and 30 mp/h (48 km/h) in built-up areas unless started otherwise. For your own safety it is important that you obey the local traffic and speed restrictions.

Should you require any assistance while in Glasgow, the UK emergency services can be contacted by calling 999 for police, fire fighters and medical services.

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 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.

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 (exclusions apply)
  2. DVLA check code for all UK licence holders
  3. A valid passport
  4. Proof of address (utility bill or bank statement dated within the last 3 months)
  5. A valid credit card in the main driver’s name
  6. Booking voucher from Green Motion or partners
Can I make amendments to my reservation?

Yes, this is possible. If you booked through our website please contact our reservations team on [email protected] however there is no guarantee that we will be able to amend your booking but we will try our best to help.

Which payment cards do you accept?

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

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 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, in all cases the main driver will be required to leave a deposit which will be taken by the method of pre-authorisation from the credit card presented. The level of pre-authorisation taken is dependent on the type of insurance purchased and the agreed excess. Typically the level of pre-authorisation required will mirror the level of agreed excess. In the cases where the hirer has selected a zero excess option, a small deposit / pre-authorisation will be required to cover any traffic violations including parking and speeding offences that may occur while the hire vehicle is in the custody of the hirer.

We would ask you to note that all pre-authorisation’s are released on the completion of the hire following a satisfactory review of the vehicle and its condition noting that any damaged caused to the vehicle while out on hire will be subject to cost with the relevant amount being removed from the pre-authorisation.

Typical deposits / pre-authorisations can range from £200 GBP to £2505 GBP dependent on the car type, age and driving experience of the driver and agreed excess.

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 7-14 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?

Green Motion Glasgow Airport offers their rental customers the opportunity to reduce their excess by purchasing one of our excess reduction packages. Each package provides different benefits ranging from reduction in excess to zero excess. Please ask at the rental counter for more information.

What happens if my flight is delayed?

In the event that your flight is delayed, please endeavour to contact Green Motion Glasgow Airport. In most cases, we monitor inbound flight information and as such we will reserve your car until you arrive for up to 4 hours from the original pick up time. It is important that you make direct contact with the branch if you feel that your delay will exceed 4 hours to avoid us treating the rental as a “no show” and us reselling the rental car.

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.

What do I do if I want to complain about Green Motion Glasgow Airport?

We take customer service very seriously and would like to think that every rental experience we are a part of is great.

If however you are not satisfied with our service, in the first instance please contact us via email on [email protected] so that we can attempt to resolve any issue directly. If we are unable to resolve your complaint you can contact customer services directly on [email protected] 

Discover Glasgow  


Glasgow, as the largest city in Scotland and the third largest city in the UK (coming after London and Birmingham), is perfectly situated on the River Clyde in West Central Scotland.

The city has developed from a small rural settlement to one of the largest seaports in the United Kingdom.

Glasgow is known for its Glasgow patter - an accent which many visitors find rather difficult to understand, so be prepared to listen to the locals carefully!

The city is culturally diverse and modern, with many hidden gems and historical architecture as well as having a reputation for its art and music scenes. We would recommend that you spend some time in Glasgow's Cathedral and modern Riverside Museum.
