Location information for Aberdeen

Introduction

Scottish Aberdeen is also called the "Granite City", after the material that was used for the older buildings. It is also known as the Oil Capital of Europe, because it's the base for North Sea oil explorations. You don't think this seems like an attractive destination for a city trip? We beg to differ. The granite houses sparkle in the sun and to brighten up the gray granite, the buildings have many flowers. Furthermore, Aberdeen has one of Europe's oldest universities (King’s College was founded in 1495) and St. Machar's Cathedral. Other than that the city is an excellent base for daytrips to beautiful castles or excellent golf courses. Or you could go on the so-called Malt Whiskey Trail (for instance to the Glenfiddich and Glen Grant breweries).

Population

Aberdeen has more than 200,000 inhabitants.

Location

Aberdeen is on the Scottish east coast, in between the Dee and Don river mouths. Between these two rivers, the coast has sandy beaches with high sand dunes further north. South of the river Dee the coast consists of steep and rugged rocks.

Economy

The economy revolves around oil extraction in the North Sea. Aberdeen's heliport takes workers to and from the oil rigs; it is one of the busiest heliports in the world. Because the extraction of oil will stop one day, Aberdeen is focusing more and more on alternative sources of energy. The Energetica Science Park has companies focused on the technology for alternative energy.

Fishery used to be a predominant industry for the local economy, but nowadays it only plays a minor role.

Airports

Aberdeen Dyce International Airport is located twelve kilometers North West of the city center. The airport is easily accessible by car: from Aberdeen take the A96 (to Inverness) and after that the Dyce exit (A947). The exit to the airport is clearly indicated on the road signs.

Public transport

The city has good public transport. The "First" company operates the city lines and bus services to suburbs such as Dyce, Cults & Culter and Kingswells. On weekends there are night buses available. Stagecoach operates one city bus service (59); other than that this company offers transport to more distant locations.

Traffic and Parking

Since old Aberdeen has many narrow streets, the best way to get to know the city is by foot. To find a parking space in the street can be difficult, but there are many other parking facilities in the center. These are clearly indicated on the signs. The parking rates are quite high. You can also park your rental car for free at one of the parking facilities on the outskirts of the town (Ellon, Stonehaven, Kingswells and Bridge or Don) and travel to the center by public transport.

Hotels

Aberdeen has a good range of accommodations. You can choose from simple boarding houses and bed & breakfasts, to five star hotels to atmospheric country inns in the city's vicinity. Furthermore there are many apartments for rent. Please take into account that much of the available accommodation is used by the oil riggers. If you have a specific hotel in mind, then please make your reservation well in advance.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
