Tips and advice

  • 1
    Most of the car hire companies we work with are based in the rental centre at Edinburgh Airport, but some have their counter in-terminal or off-site (accessed by a shuttle bus). There is a covered walkway linking the terminal to the rental centre.
  • 2
    If you are happy to take a shuttle bus to your car, you might be able to save money by renting with an off-site company.
  • 3
    When dropping your hire car off at the airport, turn right at the roundabout by the Hilton Hotel. Follow this road and take the first left before you reach the tram crossing.
  • 4
    To avoid added fuel charges, book a car with a full-to-full fuel policy. As long as you refill the tank just before the rental is over, you won't pay any extra fuel fees.
  • 5
    When choosing your hire car, think about how many passengers you will have and how much luggage space you will need.
  • 6
