Point to point VIP transits!

Allow us to make even the travel part of your experience. Helicopter transfers, classic or vintage cars and point to point care and attention including airport transit.

Travel is not what it used to be. Endless, unavoidable security checks,  carousel appointments with you luggage etc. Some of this is a function of how the world now is but once you land in Scotland we will make transit part of the Golf Travel Scotland experience.

Chauffeur Driven Tours

Chauffeur Drive

The majority of our clients prefer the chauffeured option over self-drive. Almost without fail they are glad they did.

No fatigue, no getting lost, no panic or frustration, no being late for tee times!
Golf vacations of course usually consist of a group of golfers, often 4 or 8 golfers and that makes a chauffeur a very cheap and economical option. It is also the most comfortable and friendly fun for the group, why would you not take it and make the most of relaxing in style.

Stress-free golf holidays with your personal driver
Having a driver can be such a help. He knows his way around, knows the shops, the pubs, the golf courses and the best routes to get there.

Our chauffeured mini-vans are perfect for parties of up to 4 golfers and their clubs.

Our mini-coach options are ideal for parties of 4-8 golfers, mid-sized coaches are suited to groups from 9 to 20 people and large coaches are perfect to cater for parties of up to 36 golfers with clubs (at a tight squeeze on the clubs maybe 40) above that we are talking 2 coaches.

Self Drive information

Self Drive Golf Tours

If you wish to take the Self Drive option as part of your tour with Scot Golf Travel this can be arranged and we will advise you on the rental choices for the size of your group.

A major consideration is that a standard car in our country will not be large enough for 4 people, plus luggage, plus golf bags. So don’t be fooled by the look of a picture or that the description might say estate vehicle. Looks can be deceptive and it may still be too small for your needs.

Consider hiring a mini-van for your group and golf equipment
We will give you the best advice possible and just to be sure you have the best experience from your trip we start with “if you are a group of 3 or above – we would strongly advise that you consider paying the extra for a mini-van, or change your plan and go with a private driver”.

Things to know about driving in Scotland
That said and you wish to continue with your ideas of Self Drive for your trip then please read on and give the following points some consideration:

  • Most of our roads are narrow, particularly in Scotland (not many motorways)
  • Most of our cars are manual, if you require an automatic your hire car will cost more than the manual version.
  • Petrol is very expensive compared to USA/Canada, it may not be as cheap an option as you think.
  • You will need to check the fine print on your hire car particularly for insurance cover, you may need to take additional cover and it will cost you money (sometimes a deposit that is refundable – depends on the company, they all have different arrangements).
  • Your can may not come with sat nav (navigational aid) and it may cost you more to hire that for your car or it may not be available at the time of arrival/pickup.

Taking the above points into account, you may wish to take a driver instead! The amount for a driver will not be much different when you weigh up the “real” cost of a hiring a car. The added benefit is for the poor person that might have to do the drive, if they are driving they will not be able to see much as they will be concentrating on the narrow roads and the traffic, they will find it very tense and tiring and it may impact on their golf. We would always advise taking a driver to be the best option for maximum benefit from your holiday. Your driver will also be most helpful with local knowledge and places to stop or visit.
