What types and makes of rental cars are on offer in Galashiels?

Whether you want a roomy family vehicle or a low-cost economy car, the sheer wealth of options in this metropolis means you're bound to find a car that suits your needs. Some options include:

What's the age requirement to rent a car in Galashiels?

Typically, to rent a car in Galashiels you must be at least 21—the same as it is across most of the country. However, you might need to pay a surcharge if you're under 25. Be sure to review the supplier's terms to determine what the total will be before you book your car.

Do I need insurance to rent a car in Galashiels?

Insurance is always needed, wherever you rent a vehicle. However, your current car insurance may cover you. Additionally, if you pay for the rental in full using your credit card, the card's policy may also insure you. Keep in mind, these policies may not provide 100% coverage, and you'll have to add it to your booking for Galashiels. Check ahead of time and, if it's required, you can simply include it at the CarRentals.com checkout.

What is the difference between all the fuel policies?

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.

What fuel policy should I get?

Most suppliers give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we suggest bringing it back filled up. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited miles is a great option if you decide to do a bit of sightseeing or visit several clients all over Galashiels. You can drive wherever you like and not incur extra charges. Go over your policy to discover if there are any limitations.

Before you leave the lot

Before you begin on your Galashiels adventure, be sure you go over a few things before you leave the rental lot. It's worth the time to:

  • Walk around the car and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Check the trunk to determine if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new city
