Traffic Information & SIXT Tips

Traffic Information & SIXT Tips

If renting a car after your arrival to Glasgow Airport (GLA) you will only be eight miles west of the city center. There are many easily accessible roadways running into and through Glasgow. The M8 travels through the city center and will connect you to the M77, M73 and M80. If wanting to head to the western Highlands you can connect by the A82, while the M74 can be used to reach southern destinations. Although the city center is laid out in a grid system it unfortunately does not make for easy navigating. Driving in the city center may take some getting used as you will often encounter one way streets, bus lanes and pedestrian-only districts. Parking in the city center is limited and can be rather expensive. It might be better to either park and ride from a subway station or to leave your car in one of the many multi-story parking lots which are easy to spot and will even display how many spaces are available.
With your rent a car in Glasgow you will be able to see all the amazing attractions. Spend time in the city center and be sure to visit its many museums, shopping and dining destinations. Hit up the so-called "Style Mile" of Buchanan Street or drive east to the creative district of Merchant City. The West End is also a fun Bohemian district, home to the University of Glasgow and Glasgow Botanic Gardens. Heading to the East End allows you to check out the famous Glasgow Barrowland market and Glasgow Necropolis Cemetery. For some time outdoors head to the South Side's Pollok Park.

Overall, Sixt's services are top in my rental experiences in the past few years. I've used the several times, far more than any other rental company. No matter whether in Glasgow City, Glasgow Airport, or other countries in Europe. The only minor problem I experienced is the fuel policy. A case is that I chose 'full tank' policy since the staff said the fuel rate is lower than any regular gas station. When I got the car, I found the tank was not full but I still was charged the full tank quantity. Further, when I refilled the tank during the trip, I figured the full tank fee was only about 75% of Sixt's full tank price. Since I had a bad experience with 'full tank' option, I choose 'like to like' option on another rental. I took pictures of the fuel gauge while picking up and returning the car. No surprisingly, I was billed with extra fuel after 3 days I returned car. The extra fuel fee is a lot, the amount is enough to refill 1/4 tank of fuel. The gauge was at the full level when I returned it and it was impossible to pump so much extra fuel in. I knew it because I checked the tank size for the car model. I reported to customer service and showed the picture. The customer service returned the fuel surcharge after I filed my complaint. Unlike a lot of rental companies, each branch's service quality varies. It looks like sixt's customer service is more willing to solve customer's problems from every branch. That is an important reason I keep using their services.
