Car rental in Glasgow, staying at Drury's, leaving from the Glasgow airport

Jump to last reply

We are staying in Glasgow for three extra days after a tour in Scotland in order to research and visit ancestral homes and churches in the area. We'll be renting a car, but will do this with caution given the great number of warnings about driving issues, including driving on the opposite side of the road than we're accustomed to. However, since we need great flexibility in getting around the city and exploring beyond, we don't have a choice. We'd also like to get to Edinburgh and possibly visit/tour a castle in one of the areas. (Suggestions about that, too, are appreciated, but we can do more research here, too.)
We've never traveled to Europe and need advice on international car rentals. We'll certainly contact our insurance agent, but aside from those issues, any other recommendations would be most appreciated.
We'll be staying at the Drury and leaving from The Glasgow Airport. We could take advantage of transportation to the airport on the morning as the rest of the tour group leaves and pick up a rental there. This would make things easier for the car return upon our departure date, but is there something else we should consider?
We are on a limited budget. Any suggestions for favorite rental companies?
Thanks!
