Car hire at Edinburgh Airport

Our car rental centre is easily accessible with a range of different hire options - and you can reserve using the widget above.

Find us just a short walk from the terminal building. Just exit via the plaza and make your way along the covered walkway next to the multi storey car park. That'll lead you right there.

Conveniently located just minutes from the M8 and M9, two of Scotland's main motorways, the airport is accessible by car from all areas of the country. We're also around a 20-minute drive from Edinburgh city centre.

GB driving license changes

GB photo-card driving licence holders are being warned that the DVLA is abolishing the paper counterpart on 8 June 2015 and will cease to have any legal status. The counterpart was introduced to display information such as endorsement/penalty points. If you are planning to rent a vehicle in the UK or overseas then you should contact your rental supplier to clarify what actions you may need to take.
