Location information for Edinburgh Airport

Edinburgh Airport, in Scotland, is one of the UK's busiest airports. In addition, the airport saw more passengers in 2009 than any other Scottish airport. The airport is heavily reliant on budget operators; both Ryanair and Easyjet have large bases here. Other smaller no-frills operators, such as Jet2.com, also fly to and from Edinburgh Airport.

Edinburgh Airport has some excellent road connections. However, an airport rail link is unavailable at present. Therefore, cheap car hire in Edinburgh Airport is the transport of choice for many visitors to the region. The airport lies on the A8 Glasgow-Edinburgh road. This road is easily accessible from both the M8 and M9 motorways.

In fact, Glasgow is less than an hour away with car rental in Edinburgh Airport. However, the Edinburgh region is delightful, and visitors should spend as long as possible here, before moving on to other Scottish destinations.

Edinburgh Airport has recently built a modern car rental facility. It is located on the other side of the airport car park, near the Hilton Hotel. It is easily accessible via a covered walkway and all available vehicles can be found under one roof. Car hire in Edinburgh Airport is offered by nine reputable firms.

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 CarHireExtra.co.uk 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).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
