Glasgow City Chambers
Glasgow Airport is a short drive from Glasgow's city centre by the M8 motorway. You can read more about the airport in our posts on arriving into Glasgow Airport and departing from Glasgow Airport. You can also learn more about car hire available at the airport in our post on collecting your car hire from Glasgow Airport.
Driving to the airport
Junction 28 exit to Glasgow Airport
To access the airport, you just need to exit the M8 at Junction 28.
First roundabout after Junction 28
You'll come across two roundabouts before getting to the airport. At the first roundabout, take the first exit and go straight ahead towards the terminal building.
You'll see this welcome sign as you approach the second roundabout - the exit you take depends on which zone you need to return your car hire to!
Zone A or Zone B?
Second roundabout after Junction 28
Sign before the second roundabout - first exit for zone B car hire returns and third exit for zone A returns.
Zone B car hire returns
St Andrew's Drive West
If you need to return your car hire to zone B, at the next roundabout, take the first exit onto St Andrew's Drive West.
Each car hire company has its own car park along this road so you just need to look out for your car hire company's sign and turn left when you get to the relevant car park. The first car park you'll come across is Avis.
Hertz car hire in zone B
Next up is the car park for Hertz
Alamo, Europcar and National car hire
And although I said each car hire company has its own car park… I lied! Alamo, Europcar and National share the same car park (they share the same car hire desk at the airport too!)
Zone A car hire returns
If you're returning a car hire to Zone A, at that second roundabout (with the welcome to Glasgow Airport sign), you'll need to take the third exit onto St Andrew's Drive. As you drive down this road, you'll see a multi-storey car park on your left.
Car hire returns for zone A
Car hire companies here share the same car park - the entrance for which will come up very shortly on your left. The airport terminal is just across the road from the other side of this car park.
You should be able to return the keys and sort out any other additional paperwork on-site at the car park but if not, you can head to the car hire desks inside the terminal. They are located right by the domestic arrivals exit on the ground floor.
