FAQ Overview
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for your rental car is mainly made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by the main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. Please note that the main driver must present a valid credit card issued in their name. Furthermore, the main and additional drivers must be in possession of a valid driving license for at least 1 year (for further information, please refer to the rental conditions). Moreover, both, the main and additional drivers are required to present a valid identity card/passport and must be of the minimum age specified in the rental conditions.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of delay. As a general rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver must present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driver's license and their valid credit card.

Background information

Edinburgh Airport started as an air base in 1915 and offered its first commercial flight in 1947, now the busiest route in the UK. In 1987, the airport was privatized and its routes and airlines grew quickly and now almost every regional and international airport in the country, along with most major European cities, offers flights to Edinburgh. BAA has pledged £200 million to Edinburgh Airport over the next decade to keep up with growing passenger demand.

The main terminal features all the facilities you would expect at a small international airport, with airport lounges, currency exchange options and a good range of eateries, and the airport also offers a range of 300 whiskies to taste and purchase. There are a number of good places for plane spotting around the airport, but the best is perhaps around Ingliston Market, with great views of the planes, airport and runway.

Excursions

There are many things to do around the airport in Edinburgh, something a car hire Edinburgh Airport can make possible. Edinburgh Castle and its old town is a must-see, along with the Museum of Scotland, the largest museum in the UK outside of London, and its shopping choices are broad. Close by is Glasgow and Dundee with some stunning scenery in between, and it is also easy to head south into England, to experience various national parks. The excellent location of the airport means that you can immediately take advantage of the primary road network with a car rental Edinburgh airport and on to all of the UK’s major cities, with a speed, convenience and personal freedom that public transportation just can’t beat.
