Welcome to Edinburgh Airport Car Rentals

Make getting around Edinburgh easier with a rental car. Airport Hotel Guide provides daily car hire for private or business use. With partnerships with all major car rental companies, we offer a range of types and sizes of vehicles, from compact cars to SUVs.

Situated about 9 miles (14 kilometers) from downtown Edinburgh, Edinburgh Airport (EDI) is a 25-minute drive away from the city. EDI is the busiest airport in Scotland, but we’ll make this step easy.

Where to Go

After arriving, you can find all major car hire companies in the airport’s new car rental centre, located just outside the terminal building. Follow the signs from domestics arrivals.

Returning the car is easy, too. Edinburgh Airport is clearly signposted from the A8 and surrounding motorways. Once you make it here, simply follow signs for car rental returns.

Things to Know About Driving in Scotland

  1. All drivers in the U.K. drive on the left-hand side of the road. The driver’s seat is situated on the right-hand side of the vehicle, so acclimate yourself to the change of position before leaving the car rental location.
  2. It is illegal to use a cell phone while driving a vehicle.
  3. Visitors from countries outside of the European Union can drive in Scotland and throughout the U.K. for one year as long as their license is still valid in the country in which it was issued.
