Traffic Information

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.

Sixt Tips

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.
