Edinburgh Car Hire

Edinburgh is well-served by public transport, so hiring a car is completely optional depending on your personal preferences and what you plan to do on your trip to the area. If you are planning on exploring the more rural parts of Edinburgh and Lothians (or the rest of Scotland for that matter), then hiring a car may be the most effect way of doing so. There are car hire centres at Edinburgh Airport and Waverley Rail Station. Why not compare the best prices using our online booking form?

In the UK you must be at least 21 years old to hire a car and you must produce your driving license and some photographic identification. Be sure to check the national driving laws and your individual rental agreement before driving off!

Car parking in Edinburgh city centre can be quite hard to come by but there are several multi-storey car parks dotted around town. Make yourself aware of the local restrictions and prices when parking in the street (these vary depending on location and time of day). Avoid double yellow lines at all times and single yellow lines from 8:30am – 6:30pm Monday to Saturday.
