We are trying to hire a car on Skye (Portree pickup) for 3 days. One problem is that my partner is a fit, healthy and young 75 year old! Although I am much younger, we prefer it if he drives.
He has driven hire cars in England and in the USA with no problems over his age but we are struggling with this one.
One car hire company can't seem bothered enough to reply to emails or phone calls - I have given up with them.
The others are quoting in the region of £50 per day, which seems high to us although normal for up there. Even for me, it is not much less. However, I can hire a car where I live in England for £20 per day.
Are prices on Skye much higher? or is it Scotland? Or are we missing something?
