Lerwick is the capital of the Shetland Islands; a group of British islands in the North Sea. Lerwick is the main gateway to the Shetlands, with a number of connections to the Scottish mainland and the Orkney Islands. British Airways offers regular flights to Sumburgh Airport, 30 miles to the south of the capital.
British Airways currently flies here from three of Scotland's biggest cities; Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh. In addition there are flights from Kirkwall, on the Orkney Islands, as well as Wick, in the far north of Scotland. A cheaper way to get here could be by taking a one of the regular Northlink Ferries from Aberdeen.

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
