Travel by car
Our advice is, if you don’t know the city, (or like driving in any city!) avoid traveling around Glasgow by car. Like all major cities, Glasgow can suffer from traffic congestion at peak times and this should be borne in mind when thinking about taking your car into the city centre, or using it to drive around there. Designated parking areas with meters or pay-and-display machines are located around the city. There are also a selection of car parks which are usually indicated by a large P sign . Often however these are pretty full and you’ll spend/waste more time driving around looking for spaces. Signs indicating parking restrictions are displayed at kerbsides and on entry to the city centre. Traffic wardens (and police) are on constant patrol and parking on a double-yellow line can carry a fairly hefty fine.
Car hire companies include: Arnold Clark (0141 434 0480), Europcar (0141 887 0414) and Mitchell's Self Drive (0141 221 8461).
