Expedia car hire in Paisley comes with No Hidden Fees

Why rent a car in Paisley?

Known as “Scotland’s largest town” and situated seven miles west of Glasgow in the county of Renfrewshire, Paisley had a flourishing weaving industry in the 19th century, which is where it name derives from: a weaving design called Paisley pattern. Historic weavers’ cottages throughout Paisley can be visited for a bit of history. Paisley also used to be a religious centre in Scotland, as attested by the history of the magnificent Paisley Abbey, built in 1163 and promoted to the status of abbey in 1245.

A Paisley car hire will enable you to visit all the exciting scenes in Greater Glasgow and beyond.

While adults indulge in the history of whisky-making, enjoying the whiff of malt in the air, the Grouse Room will keep the children entertained with fun interactive games.

    South of Paisley, 37 miles, or a 55-minute drive away via the M77 and the A77, you can delve into the world of Scotland’s most famous poet at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum. The museum is one of several attractions within the Burns National Heritage Park.

    Taking time to appreciate the beauty of its landscape is a must in Scotland. Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, 25 miles north of Glasgow (a 35-minute drive via the A82), offers 720 square miles of lowland hills bursting with colours as well as Munroes and Corbetts (that is, mountains), dozens of lochs and natural forestry. The park is a dream landscape for autumn hiking, cycling, golfing, boating, bird watching, even Munro climbing. Loch Lomond, a freshwater loch, is the UK’s largest inland body of water.

    Tips and tricks for driving in the UK

    Drive on the left side of road and only overtake on the right. At roundabouts get in the correct lane as soon as possible and stay there; indicate if you’re turning right or left; give way to the traffic on the right side.

    British car hire companies generally provide manual transmission cars. If you prefer an automatic one, you need to specifically request one to your car rental company.

    Seat belts are obligatory by law in the UK. When driving, always keep your ID, driver’s licence and car insurance documents at hand.
