Expedia car hire in Fife comes with No Hidden Fees

Visitors to Scotland staying in the area of Fife, located just a short trip from the capital city, Edinburgh, will discover the rich and varied history of one of the country’s oldest regions. Fife was not only once home to the Scottish monarchs but it is also the birthplace of the country’s national sport, golf. Although there are no major cities in the Kingdom of Fife, the many quaint towns and settlements provide a unique atmosphere, and most visitors will be drawn to the ancient town of St. Andrews, home to Scotland’s oldest academic institution, the University of St. Andrews, as well as the Royal and Ancient golf club.

The Kingdom of Fife can be explored with the use of public transportation as there are bus and train services running through the region, but to best explore the small and attractive seaside towns like Elie and Pittenweem and visit beautiful nature reserves like Lomond Hills Regional Park and Loch Leven, it is easier and generally more convenient to hire a car.

Hiring a Car in Dunfermline and Kirkcaldy

If you’re looking to hire a car in Fife then your two best options are the towns of Dunfermline and Kirkcaldy, both of which can be accessed using the Scotrail system, from destinations like Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Inverness. Both towns are home to major and local brands in the car hire service industry, including Enterprise and Sixt, as well as Aspire Car and Van Hire, Gibbs Vehicle Hire, Practical Car and Van Rental, among others. To ensure you receive the best available price and the type of vehicle you desire, consider reserving your car in advance.

Driving the Coast of the Kingdom of Fife

The many seaside towns that are found in Fife along the banks of the Firth of Forth will provide those touring by car with a truly picturesque experience. Following the A917, this route will lead visitors to sites such as the twin-villages of Elie and Earlsferry that feature a beautiful shared sand beach and the historic Elie Golf Club, as well as a number of Victorian buildings. St. Monans is another of these scenic spots, a fishing village whose history stretches back to early 9th Century, and features sites such as the ruins of Newark Castle and St. Monans Windmill. Be aware that this route features many narrow passages, including single-lane points when passing through villages.

Discover the Historical Town of St Andrews

The best way to get to St. Andrews is via car, as the nearest train station is Leuchars, a 30 minute bus ride from the town centre. St Andrews might be best known for its iconic Old Course golf links, but those who are not fans of the sport will be able to tour the ruins of St. Andrews Castle and St Andrews Cathedral. These two stunning 12th century attractions are located just a short walk from one another, and will make for an excellent insight into the history of this town. If you're a film buff then you can visit the nearby beach where the famous opening scene from Chariots of Fire was filmed.

To plan your visit to the Kingdom of Fife, and to research attractions and reserve your stay at hotels along the way, try using the Expedia search tool now, and you’ll soon find yourself driving through the historic and breathtaking landscape of Scotland.
