concerning a car or van hire Glasgow to Edinburgh

Jump to last reply

We will be a party of 7 adults with relatively light luggage, coming into the UK to Glasgow in June and spending a few days, then want to travel via car or van (I'm driving) for several days to Ft William ( Jacobite train) Blair Athol, St Andrews, then Edinburgh. 3 nights in E'burgh. No car needed/wanted in the big cities. So the question is: would it be better to rent in Glasgow, and turn in the vehicle in Edinburgh and absorb the hefty 2nd location fee - OR - I could drop my party off in Edinburgh and then (by myself) drive back and drop the car off in Glasgow and rail back to Edinburgh. Is that idea developmentally challenged on my part? We'll be seeking a 9 pax van, as 7 adults ( with bags) in a mini-van proved to be unacceptable on prior trips. Vendor suggestions would also be appreciated. Results will be prominently posted on a TR on this forum after the American 4th holiday.
(Says one American to the next: "what day is the day after the 4th of July?"
2nd American: "the 5th of July"
1st American: "Stop being a jerk! You know what I mean!"
2nd: "oh, right . . I think it is a Tuesday")
