KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Edinburgh

  • Fortunately for travelers who would like to rent a car while in Edinburgh, Edinburgh Airport has a consolidated hire car center that makes it easier than ever to pick your car up after your flight lands. The hire car center is connected to the airport via a covered skywalk and is just a short walk away from the domestic and international terminals.
  • An important law to remember when driving in Edinburgh -- and in Scotland in general -- is that it is illegal to use a cell phone while driving -- and that includes using cell phones as a navigational device. So play it safe and have your passengers be the ones to direct you during your time in Edinburgh.
  • Like in many other major cities today, rush hour can cause major congestion in Edinburgh. Edinburgh’s morning rush hour goes from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and evening rush hour is usually from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Some of the major avenues and intersections to avoid during those hours include the Sheriffhall Roundabout and the Hermiston Junction.
  • If you are still on the fence on whether or not to rent a car during your time Edinburgh, then one thing to consider is that without one, the breathtaking countryside will be much harder to experience. After all, no trip to Scotland would be complete without witnessing the country’s majestic lochs and mountains. Some of the natural beauties and historic sites well within reach by car from Edinburgh include Loch Ness, Stirling Castle, and the Lammermuirs.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Edinburgh for AED 184 or less
  • Book your rental car in Edinburgh at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Edinburgh are around 74% cheaper than other car types, on average

Edinburgh car rental experiences: the best tips from KAYAK users

Insights shared by verified travelers who rented a car in Edinburgh 
Verified travelerMar 2024
Just be prepared for the commute from the airport to the rental agency. Need to bus it and walk and minute, but far easier than it seems. Don’t be overwhelmed.
Verified travelerSep 2023
Other drivers were great, no honking, no cutting ppl off, so it made driving a pleasant experience for having to drive on the left side. Pause to think at all turns and roundabouts and it works like a charm.
Verified travelerOct 2023
Driving in Scotland is challenging. Automatic transmission helps. Rent a car with a spare tire, if possible. Agent told us afterwards that 40% of the car rentals have a flat tire at some point.
Verified travelerSep 2023
The driving was surprisingly easy. Traffic lights in Scotland display a red/yellow light combination before turning green. That helps anticipate getting the clutch and shifter ready.
Verified travelerSep 2023
Definitely rent a car from Nicolli auto.
TJSep 2023
Should be comfortable driving on the wrong side of the road.
Verified travelerSep 2023
Stick with known company with a good reputation.
MeganJun 2023
I did some reading on various websites about driving in Scotland. The narrow roads sound scarier than they are for the most part. Having a companion to help navigate and remind me to stay on the correct side of the road was very helpful
KatherineJul 2023
We took an Uber from central Edinburgh to the Alamo location at the Edinburgh airport which I would highly recommend. Our driver took us right to the pick-up office.
MikeAug 2023
Go as small as you can. Roads and parking stalls are not large so if you can give yourself more space it really makes it easier getting around.
WayneJul 2023
The central location in Edinburgh was easy to find. Get satellite navigation if possible as cell service data was sketchy. Bite the bullet and get the insurance.
JeffreyJun 2023
Pick up at the train station was very easy and quick.
ChrisJul 2023
Try Sixt, they are much easier to deal with.
RachelAug 2023
Driving in Edinburgh is very overwhelming. Got lost multiple times. Driving through Scotland was amazing. Would recommend checking out road signs and their meanings before you get here.
Verified travelerJul 2023
Roads are narrow and public parking isn't the easiest, but it's worth it to
Verified travelerJun 2023
Driving was very easy but could be stressful for some people
Verified travelerJul 2023
Be prepared for inclement weather. Car lot uncovered.
MilaJul 2023
Don't use green motion. Believe the negative reviews
JENNIFERMay 2023
I didn’t drive in Edinburgh. I used it to drive around the islands and highlands. For Americans, it should be known the roads are much more narrow than the US, and the speed limit is higher considering how narrow they are. Drive where you feel comfortable, but have the courtesy to let others pass you at the designated “passing zones.” Also, in a lot of areas there is no shoulder, and it’s easy to fall into pot holes or clip debris on the side that can cause a blowout . Lastly, be very careful of the unpredictable sheep situation, especially if there are a lot of lambs around. The babies sort of prance around without a car in the world.
TisaMay 2023
Do it from the airport, not the city center. Travel as lightly as you can and keep to a mid sized car. And get a car with GPS as there were constant construction diversions.
JosephMay 2023
If you're used to driving on the right side of the road, navigating traffic and endless road construction in Edinburgh can be a challenge.
BenoitMay 2023
Bonne chance pour la conduis gauche. Il faut été courtois

FAQs about renting a car in Edinburgh

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Edinburgh?

    Edinburgh is an old and historic city with many small roads and alleys, and that means that larger vehicles are at a real disadvantage.

Instead of taking an authorization of 500GBP, like every other rental place in the world, they took a deposit. When I called the call centre, even they were surprised. They took the money at 1.78CDN, and when returned, it came back at 1.66CDN. FOR A LOSS!!! BE AWARE OF THIS SCAM!! I won't be renting from Enterprise ever again after this.

Car was very good, clean and comfortable. No issue with the car.

Cons:

When I returned the car, the assistant manager went straight to one tyre and pointed out a couple of dents in the tyre wall that he claims I must have caused as the tyres were in perfect condition before the rental. When I told him that the pre-rental check of the car only included the bodywork and that the guy mentioned that damage to the wheels was normal and didn't count, he said he'd check with the guy that I picked the car up from. The guy was in the back office and didn't come out but the assistant manager assured me that I was invited to inspect the tyres beforehand. The was simply not true. I was charged £300 to replace the tyre. Outrageous.

The car hire and Collision Damage Waver insurance were sold as a package and yet it was clear that Enterprise were very uncomfortable with this. They made me sign a complex disclaimer before I could take the car. Additionally, the telephone number on the certificate of insurance was in the USA and I felt that it would be difficult to organise a claim if it were needed.

Oct 2019

Pros:

The car worked and was cheap.

Cons:

Drop off and pick up was incredibly slow, the shuttle runs like once an hour and the staff is in no hurry either. Literally took me 90 min to pick up and drop off, and there were no lines to wait in. If it weren't for the incredibly cheap rates, there's no way this place would be in business. The service was really lacking, the rental office looks like an old shed, and the staff is dishonest, trying to charge you for "damage" to the vehicle that clearly was there when you picked up the car. Definitely not worth the hassle to save a few bucks.

There was an unexpected charge that wasn’t noted when I booked and paid for the rental online, months before our trip. It was for licenses and fees as well as a premium location tax. None of which was noted at time of booking but added another £15 to our rental cost. Other than that all went well with the rental.

A car was available for me to drive. That was good. The bad: 1) Original quote was for £ 275 - the local Hertz desk charged me £ 691 and tried to charge me over £ 800!! 2) I requested an automatic transmission and got a stick 3) there was a huge scratch in the rear passenger door 4) There was no return sign at the Inverness airport for Hertz, all the other rental car agencies were represented but not Hertz. We had to drive around for 10 min trying to find it, and luckily saw the tiny Hertz sign upon leaving the airport. Kind of a disaster regarding the drop off.

Cons:

The offering of insurance prior to getting the vehicle should have been better , since the insurance at the counter was outrageous. Also the drop off should have been described, since in that airport it is rather convoluted.

Pros:

Car was size as described

Cons:

We were charged much more than was quoted. In addition there was some damage to the car which we noted at pick up but Agent told us it was all documented. They are now trying to charge us for the damage.... And they upped the rate by 50%. SCAM

Predatory practices around car damage, and didn't accept the 3rd party insurance coverage that I had purchased. At the point of pickup I then needed to provide additional coverage through my credit card. Poor communication and customer service throughout.

We did not know until we got there that they did not take American Express. Also, were forced to add on an expensive daily insurance fee and they charged my credit card $1500 additional as a deposit that would not be credited back for a month! The entire rental felt like a bait-and-switch, as the rental cost a lot more than we were quoted. Also, when we returned the car, they went over it with a fine tooth comb and mentioned a scratch below the door that was there already. They said that they would get back to me “after inspection.” I am assuming that they are going to attempt to charge me something out of the deposit that I will have to fight. Unfriendly people that run it seem to be working for the Russian mafia. I honestly did not feel safe at all!! I would never use this service again!

Friendly staff, however, was very disappointed with the false promise of an uograde upon collection. I requested a VW golf or simular and ended up with a smaller Kia that couldnt fit any more than 2 people comfortably and had to out my suitcases on the back seat rather than in the trunk. Unfortunately i dint think i'll be renting with you again as this vehicle was completely unfit for purpose.

Had a great overall experience with Arnold Clark except for the pickup. Pickup location at airport is terrible and confusing. After calling and getting direction we finally found it, but then the driver missed us and left us standing in the rain. Had to call a second time to get picked up. Otherwise it was all good.

Pros:

The car was great. Excellent gas mileage, handled well, and was absolutely impeccable when we picked it up. Service was kind and friendly.

Cons:

The return process has been a little frustrating. First, I was not told that I would need to keep the copy of the paperwork stating our agreement to give to the Avis rep on Orkney. Had I known that, I would have put it with the other confirmations and information that I was toting around instead of panicking. Second, I found the paperwork, gave the keys to the Avis rep, he said he would get it South from there, and I had nothing further to do. Unfortunately, I got an email from Avis telling me I was in breach of contract because the car hadn't been returned. This issue has not been resolved and is currently my only frustration with the rental.

Really great experience! Didn’t know if this was a really secure place when I first booked. Upon arrival into the parking lot it was clear to me that I made the right choice! We were greeted with an upgrade to a brand new vehicle to take into the Scottish highlands! The car was very clean and the staff even offered to drive us to the train station to catch our train into England when we were done with our rental. McNicolls was above and beyond what I thought it would be. Staff was super friendly too!

The staff was very professional and friendly, and I never felt like they were taking advantage of me as a foreign customer, unlike another car rental place in London. The young man who checked out my car was very responsive and efficient. The only minor complaint is their location is slightly difficult to find.

Total lack of transparency regarding the daily price. We prebooked/prepaid a class and the end charge was double what we expected. No mention at the counter. You don’t get a copy of the invoice at drop off - you get it days later and then they make it difficult to see the
