Focus 4x4 hire from Inverness Airport

Hi, we are planning a NC500 route trip in October 2017 and looking at Focus for our car hire - hoping to get a 4x4 like a Landrover discovery sport but keen to understand if they are any good and 1. do they have an office at the airport or do you have to spend a load of time going off site and 2. how does it work with drop off at the end of the trip. does anyone have experience of using them from inverness airport (I see their main office is in the town) - we are travelling with our 3 yr old so keen to get as efficient and easy service as possible.

The only rental companies actually at the terminal are Avis and Europcar. Hertz are about a quarter of a mile away in the industrial park beside the airport. Focus are based in the City.

You don't actually need a 4x4 to drive the NC500, it's all on roads! You probably save a small fortune on hire fees if you drop the 4x4 requirement.

I was thinking the same thing edinem. If the OP plans to take the vehicle off-road they need to check that insurance covers it for off road use.

How much off-road one can do, on those bogs?! There is no need for anything but a sedan type of car. However, driving a Discovery will allow you to have better look at scenery around ... and others to have a better look at you :-))
