Location information for Edinburgh Airport

Situated 12kms to the west of the city, Edinburgh Airport is one of the UK's main airports, handling almost 10 million passengers per year, to and from dozens of, mainly, European cities. The single-terminal airport provides access to the Scottish capital, with the city's stunning surroundings best explored by car.

Airport Facilities

The terminal has been extended and refurbished over the years and now has all the facilities you would expect from a major airport. There are ATMs and money exchange outlets both land and air-side, as well as left luggage, extensive shopping, several bars and restaurants (in Departures), and multi-storey car parking.

It has many top companies like Avis, Hertz and Europcar represented here. It is best to book ahead to save money and get the right car for your needs. The main A8 route runs directly to Edinburgh, while the nearby M8 and M9 motorways offer a quick exit from the area.

Driving

Driving in Edinburgh itself can be interesting, especially in the Old Town, as it is a web of winding one-way streets. Car parks fill up quickly, are well monitored and are quite expensive so ensure you plan your trip well and park early if possible. Out of the central districts, driving is pleasant.

Things To See and Do

There are some pleasant sights within a 30-minute drive of the city and a ring road helps drivers to avoid the city centre. Tourists typically take in nearby Leith, which is located four kilometres to the north and is known for the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. Lauriston Castle is a popular daytrip, while St Andrew's and Stirling are about an hour away by car.

Best Time To Visit

Edinburgh is not known for its great weather, but the weather here fairs better than that of most of the rest of Scotland. The best time to tour the area with car rental in Edinburgh Airport is between May and September. Average daily temperatures are 15°C, with a 30°C maximum in August. The Edinburgh Festival at this time is reason alone for a visit.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is 121CarHire.com the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? 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. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
