Great prices guaranteed

We have spent years building a special relationship with our rental partner, Arnold Clark, allowing us to offer you lower prices than going direct.

Celtic Legend offers the most competitive rates for car rental in Scotland and England.

With 20 branches across Scotland and another 16 in England, our supplier, Arnold Clark, is the largest independent rental car company in Europe and the only car rental company in Scotland offering unlimited mileage on all rentals.

Our vehicles are sourced from Scotland’s largest independent car rental fleet of more than 9,000 vehicles.  The fleet is normally renewed every 3 to 6 months and we can supply virtually any type of vehicle.

We are a Scottish owned family business.  All rental enquiries are responded to personally rather than via an automated form.

We can supply highly experienced driver guides, if you would prefer not to drive yourself and we are always happy to help prepare itineraries, book hotels & ferries to make sure your trip runs smoothly.

Example rental car in Scotland
Age restrictions

Drivers aged 21 and 22 years are subject to a £25 per day additional charge and can rent cars in Group 2. Excess cannot be waived and you must have held your licence for a minimum of 4 years.

Drivers aged 23 and 24 years are subject to a £25 per day additional charge and can rent cars in Groups 2, 4, 4A, 4MP and 4MA. Excess can be waived and you must have held your licence for a minimum of 12 months.

Drivers aged 25 to 79 years can rent all vehicles. Excess can be waived.

Drivers aged 80+ can drive all vehicles apart from 9 seaters and Luton Vans. That is providing you have confirmed what medical conditions you have and that you have followed any advice or guidance given to you by your General Practitioner (Doctor) or Consultant and, if a UK licence holder, the DVLA have been made aware.

Payments & Pickup

Payment is NOT normally required in advance and can only be made when you pick up your car by credit or some debit cards.

No car rental company in Scotland will accept a cash payment.

You will need your driving licence and address ID (utility bill etc. for UK customers) and passport or National ID card for overseas clients.

One-way car hires

Picking up and dropping off your rental car at different branches incurs a charge, unless they are in the same city.

The charge is dependent on the type of car booked and will be included in your quote.

Travelling with Children

Under European law all children must travel using an appropriate child restraint until they reach either 135 cm/ 4ft 5in tall or 12 years old.

Unbeatable Prices

We know the price and the package we offer for car hire is pretty well unbeatable, but should you wish to shop around other car hire companies before you book with Celtic Legend, please don’t forget to add in all the charges which come as extras when you rent a car from other suppliers. It would also be a good idea to bookmark our site, so you can find us again to make your hire car booking. We offer not only a quality car rental, but a truly cheap car rental.

Remember, if another rental company’s quote SOUNDS too good to be true, it probably IS too good to be true!
