Aberdeen (United kingdom)
Aberdeen is the third largest city in Scotland, located at the North Sea in England's northeastern part. The old city areas are mostly built of gray, mica-containing granite, which is why it was called the "granite city" in 1800 and 1900 centuries. Aberdeen also has a number of good parks, gardens and floral arrangements around the city and a very long sandy beach, which more than 3 km long and gently descending into the sea. Due to North Sea oil the city is considered to be the capital of the British oil. The North Sea, however, is always too cold for swimming and the climate is rarely warm enough for sunbathing."

Things which affect the renting of the car:
- Driver’s license: In the European Union / Schengen a driver's license from an EU country is sufficient, although for North Americans it is recommended to carry a separate international driving license, in addition to the American driving license.
- Direction of traffic: In Europe the traffic is mainly right-handed. The exception is Great Britain, which is left-handed traffic.
- Insurance: In Western Europe, all rental cars include some kind of insurance, so additional insurance policies are often unnecessary (unless you are going to Russia or Eastern Europe).
- Driving abroad: You can drive a rental car almost everywhere within all countries of the European Union / Schengen territory without additional fees. Eastern European countries and Russia are the exceptions and you should always ask the car rental company in advance about the rules.
