Getting Cash

Does anyone know if the ATMs are easily available at the Glasgow airport?? I will be arriving on a Sat. at 7:30 am. I do not know if I should exchange some money in the US before leaving to pay for transport to hotel or count on getting it at the airport in Glasgow.

There are ATMs at Glasgow Airport, which are easily findable. However, I always like to be prepared for the worst (for example, ATMs not working - doesn't happen very often, but it does happen). To that end, you might want to either bring a small amount of pounds with you, or make sure you have say $100 cash which you can change at an airport Bureau de Change if caught in such a situation.

Hi, as the other replies say there are several ATM,s at Glasgow airport including as you exit baggage reclaim.They are all easy to get to.

I have never had to wait more than a couple of minutes to use one even on a busy day.

Hope you have a good flight.

Yes as others state you will have no problems getting cash, as for arriving at 0730, if you are on the flight I am thinking about, Continental from Newark, more nearer 0830, every morning on the radio traffic and travel report they say it will arrive in late.

Enjoy your stay.

Further to this most places (not taxis of course) will accept card, although some don't take American Express. I've asked a taxi to stop at an atm for me many times on my way somewhere. However, as everyone has said, you'll find it easy to withdraw cash at Glasgow Airport.

Plenty of cash machines in the airport and very easy to find.

If you're planning on a taxi you've also go the option of paying for it by credit card, but any driver will stop at an atm for you anywhere along the route.

See here for details of paying for your taxi by credit card -


If you're getting a bus transfer to Glasgow you can buy tickets for the Glasgow Flyer in the airport before boarding the bus and use a card to pay here to. At international arrivals you can buy a ticket from the VisitScotland counter.

Whatever happens, you won't be stuck if you arrive with no cash.

Enjoy your visit!

More and more taxis are accepting credit/debit cards these days. In addition to ATMs at Glasgow Airport there is also a bureau de change. Its a smallish airport and everything is easy to locate.
