The airport is close to the M8 and M9 motorways and the entrance to the airport is reached from the A8 Glasgow Road.  For satellite navigation users the postcode is EH12 9DN.

The main rail stations of Edinburgh, Waverley and Haymarket, are situated in the city centre.  Transport between the airport and the rail stations is provided by taxis or by Airlink 100.  Edinburgh Shuttle buses can pick up or drop off at the stations.  The journey time is normally approximately 30 minutes.  A night bus, the N22, also operates between Waverley station and the airport.  Buses to Edinburgh and other local destinations stop outside the main entrance on the terminal forecourt.  Seven seater executive minibuses provide a shuttle service to the airport.  These minibuses pick up or drop off at any point within the city zone.  The service is frequent and runs approximately every 15 minutes.

National Express and Scottish Citylink operate services to and from Edinburgh’s main bus station in Elder Street.  Some services also call at Waverley Bridge to connect with the Airlink100 airport service.  In addition to this, some long-distance buses and coaches call at Ferrytoll Park and Ride.  The airport has a choice of short stay car parks which are a short walk from check-in and arrivals or long stay car parks from which a courtesy bus operates to the terminal, valet parking is also available.

Customer questions about Edinburgh Airport car hire

Hi, I'm looking at hiring the Nissan x trail or similar can you tell me if that's a 7 seater? 

The Nissan X-Trail is a 5 seater. We have a Peugeot 5008 or similar available which is a 7 seater.

Hi I have a quote for a one way rental from Edinburgh to Glasgow with easirest, can you beat the price they have quoted me?

Hi, we will always match or beat our competitors, can you please let me know the dates you require the vehicle and I'll take a look now, i'm confident we can beat it.

Hi, if we rent a car with the credit card of the first driver and we have a second additional driver, can the second driver return the car without the first driver present?

Yes, that is fine as long as the main driver and additional driver are both present when collecting the car.

Hi Fiona, I am looking at the Toyota Yaris Automatic but note there is a 3 pound for an extra driver. Is there a limit to the number of days that is charged? We are looking at 39 days and I note some rentals are max 10 days

Hello, additional driver fees are per day, however there is often a maximum fee, in this case that is 11 days, so 3x10 = £30 fee for the additional driver, however of course they can drive the car for the full 39 days.
