Location information for Edinburgh

Car hire in Edinburgh

Cultural and historic Edinburgh exudes an array of activities, sites, and delights for a majestic trip into wild and rugged Scotland. Steeped in history, the architecture of Edinburgh is made up of some truly iconic buildings. The city moves with the times, boasting metropolitan shops, pubs, and clubs alongside traditional inns located along ancient, windy alleys. The city is the gateway to the Highlands and with car rental in Edinburgh, you can head out into the mysterious moors and be immersed in a natural playground.

Why to visit

Start your trip by visiting some of the many attractions within the heart of the city. Learn about the history of this extraordinary place with a trip to the National Museum. The more adventurous can push themselves up to Arthur's Seat for majestic views of Edinburgh city. Although the city has much to offer, no trip to Edinburgh is complete without a drive to the surrounding Lothians. East Lothian boasts some of the most stunning coast you will ever see. Compare cheap car hire in Edinburgh to find the best deal before embarking on a journey of majestic grandeur.

Transport

Superb transport links means that getting to Edinburgh and the Lothians is simple and enjoyable. The city boasts an international airport and excellent rail links with other major UK cities. Navigating the compact city is easily done by bicycle or on foot, but to experience more of the Scottish countryside it is necessary to set out on a road trip. The countless moors and the rugged coastline will delight every passenger.

What to see and do

Fancy playing a round of golf on the most famous course in the world? With Edinburgh car hire you can take the scenic drive to St Andrews and witness this iconic course. Always radiating great appeal to locals and tourists alike, Blair Castle is a must-see on any agenda. The ancient seat of the Dukes and Earls of Atholl, Blair Castle is slap bang in the middle of the spectacular Scottish Highlands, and is well worth a visit.

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 CompareCarHire.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).
