“Thank you so much for your kindness and patience in working though this with us. We so appreciate your candor and feel that you led us to the right vehicle, through your consultative approach.”


“Thanks for all you did to make our trip to Scotland memorable. We can’t stop talking about it we have such good memories”

Ruth & John Geiger, USA

“Just a note to say thanks. The trip was marvellous and the car was perfect. Pick up and drop off were quick and easy. Overall a terrific experience.”

David Wells

“A brief email to say thanks again for all you did to get us a GREAT price on the 12 day car hire.  We have just returned home to America and can’t believe what a great time we had.  Hiring that car through Celtic Legend was the best move we made in ensuring our holiday was something very special!”


“Great car hire price and NO hidden costs.”

Geoff Harvey, Kent, England

“Thank you for getting back to me so quickly and so clearly. I’d also like to say that I’ve dealt with rental car companies for many years and I’ve never had so clear a response – no hard to understand conditions, no huge prices for simple add ons.”

Tim, Australia

“I would never dream of going anywhere but to you for our vehicle rental. I think this makes 7 years running, and you have always taken very good care of our requirements.”


“Thank you very much for your continuing assistance with making our car hire experience in Scotland as smooth as possible. It is not very often these days that you get much good service from those who are supposed to be in the “customer service” professions – it is even rarer to have somebody be as pro-active as you have been. You have shown us that you really care about us and you are doing your best to make our holiday a happy and uncomplicated event.”

John & Kathy

“A wonderful one month holiday in Scotland made possible by the magnificent Fiat 500X hired from Celtic Legend!!  This will be a holiday we will never forget… touring one of most beautiful countries in Europe!!  Will definitely recommend your company…  so professional and hassle free!!”
