Edinburgh Rentals

Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland is an enchanting city to visit, with stunning scenery, dramatic architecture and a vibrant contemporary atmosphere. From its imposing medieval castle that sits on a crag one of the highest points of the city in Edinburgh’s historic old town, to the grandeur of the Georgian ‘New Town’, this is a city that captivates all who visit.  Located on Scotland’s east coast, the City of Edinburgh also incorporates the port district of Leith, on the shoreline of the Firth of Forth, as well as being a gateway to the beautiful Scottish Highlands; so make the most of your visit to Edinburgh when you hire one of our low costs cars or vans.


Edinburgh’s historic Old Town extends from Edinburgh Castle to the royal residence of Holyrood Palace, with the Royal Mile leading you between the two, passing by the magnificent St Giles Cathedral, the Royal Festival Theatre and the University of Edinburgh.  Directly under the Castle is Princes Street, Edinburgh’s main shopping street, which leads to the attractive streets and gardens of the grand 18th Century ‘New Town’. Take a hike up Calton Hill just to the east of Princes Street to enjoy some of Edinburgh's most iconic monuments and fantastic views of Edinburgh, the Firth of Forth and the Scottish countryside the lies beyond.


A great time to visit Edinburgh is either during the Edinburgh Festival in August, or the Hogmanay celebrations over New Year. The summer festivals include the Edinburgh International Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, both hugely popular internationally and a time when the city’s streets come alive and are full to bursting with tourists and visitors, whilst if you can brave the cold, the winter celebrations include spectacular firework displays and live performances.  If you want to travel outside of the centre of the city, why not drive your economy rental car to the beautiful Meadows park, or to the Stockbridge and Canonmills districts, just north of the New Town; both charming neighbourhoods with independent shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as the location of Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Garden.


You can pick up your cheap car rental on arrival in Edinburgh, whether it be at Edinburgh International Airport (EDI), located just 10 miles west of the city, or Waverley Railway Station, Edinburgh’s main train station.  You can also drive into the city from other destinations in the United Kingdom, with good motorway access from cities such as London, Manchester and Birmingham. If you want to explore the wider area, take a drive through The Lothians region around Edinburgh, head west to the city of Glasgow, travel north to the cities of Perth, Dundee and Aberdeen, or travel out into the glorious areas of outstanding natural beauty that form the Scottish Highlands.
