KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Livingston

  • Sitting just a short drive from the major city of Edinburgh (17 miles away), Livingston is a Scottish town that is known and loved for the historic and cultural attractions it offers to visitors, along with the picturesque tranquillity of the surrounding countryside. With car hire in Livingston, you can see everything the town and surrounding area is famous for: take a trip to Five Sisters Zoo (5 miles from the town centre), experience the historic surroundings of the Union Canal (7 miles away), or enjoy the peace of Cobbinshaw Reservoir (10 miles away).
  • Livingston sits 10 miles from Edinburgh Airport (EDI), a drive that can be completed in less than 20min via the M8 motorway. A number of hire car companies can be found at the airport terminal, including Enterprise, Hertz and Thrifty, meaning you will have no problem getting a car of your choice. Livingston car hire companies are also located in the town centre of Livingston, so planning your journey both locally and further afield should be simple enough.
  • Unlike many British towns, Livingston was planned to limit congestion and traffic: for getting around the town, make use of the ring road that sits to the east of Livingston. The vibrant inner city has no shortage of bars, restaurants, cafes and shops, so when driving nearby always be alert for pedestrians, cyclists, and other potential hazards.
  • Livingston isn’t quite as congested as neighbouring Edinburgh. However, you may find the roads to be slightly busier depending on what time of day you travel. From 08:00 until 10:00 you can expect a fair bit of traffic as locals make their way to work or school, then again in the afternoon, from around 16:00 until 19:00. Scotland in general also experiences extreme winters and Livingston is no exception: while major roads are rapidly treated for ice and snow, be careful when driving during the colder months.
  • Book your rental car in Livingston at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Livingston are around 55% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Livingston

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Livingston?

    The right vehicle for your car hire in Livingston depends entirely on your stay. For getting yourself around the town centre and urban areas, a comfortable compact would be ideal. Alternatively, those who want to use Livingston as a base to explore Edinburgh or the West Lothian countryside may find a larger car such as an estate or a 4x4 more suitable for their stay.

    Generally speaking, the urban area has a speed limit of 30mph, however this is open to exceptions. Heavily pedestrianised roads and school areas implement a 20mph limit, while certain strategic roads have a higher limit of 40mph or even 50mph. When driving around the town centre, it is advisable to stick to a speed of 20mph and you will often see "Twenty’s Plenty" signs around Livingston suggesting just that.
