Edinburgh Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Edinburgh Airport! Then head into the city. The best way to get a feel for Edinburgh is to explore its various neighborhoods. So park outside the Old Town and go see the landmarks, enjoy the medieval architecture. Then drive to Leith, a port area with lots of folk music pubs and a more local feel. Portobello is a great place to get a bite to eat, and South Edinburgh is a hip neighborhood with lively bars—it’s home to the Royal Observatory too.

Many areas in Edinburgh are green, but you can also drive your rental to Pentland Hills Regional Park, a beautiful nearby park that has many attractions and things to do. Another place to drive to is Arthur’s Seat, which is an extinct volcano with beautiful views of the city.

Edinburgh’s a great place to visit, but why not explore even more with a longer term car rental? Drive to nearby Glasgow for a different but equally authentic atmosphere, go south to England or drive north into the Scottish Highlands. You can even pick up your rental car at Edinburgh Airport and drop it off in a different city! Start planning your adventure today!

Edinburgh Airport is also known as Port-adhair Dhùn Èideann.

Edinburgh is a beautiful City worth a visit. I traveled up north to Invervary which was stunning. You must visit the Castle and its gardens, absolutely breathtaking. Loch Fyne Hotel and Spa is worth a stay too. The scenery onroute is also breathtaking with endless little villages, mountains and lochs.

I was nervous about driving on the “wrong” side of the road but I told myself the driver has to be next to the center line on two way streets. Drivers in Edinburgh are also for the most part very courteous!

If only visiting Edinburg City, you don't need a car. Great public transportation combined with narrow, busy streets makes driving less viable. However, the are many sites outside of the city that are worth visiting as well: The Kelpies, Stirling Castle, the Pentland Hills, Peebles, and many more!
