Cheap Car hire at Edinburgh Airport (EDI)

Scotland's capital, Edinburgh, invites you to rent a car and explore this fascinating city by rental car. With more than 490,000 inhabitants, the capital is the second largest city in the country, and only Glasgow with about 600,000 inhabitants is larger. Edinburgh's townscape is dominated by the characteristic Castle, which towers above the city on a rocky outcrop, on the imposing Castle Rock. The castle dates back to the 11th century, but Castle Rock itself was inhabited long ago.

Edinburgh is very well developed as a tourist destination and offers many centuries of sightseeing. But Edinburgh is also a vibrant metropolis of economic importance. This is why Edinburgh is also an important transport hub and is linked to Scotland and England via road. The M 8 motorway provides the connection to Glasgow, the M 9 to Stirling. Both motorways are located in the immediate vicinity of Edinburgh Airport (EDI), which is therefore conveniently located.

Information about Edinburgh Airport (EDI)

Edinburgh International Airport (EDI) is located about 13 miles west of the city center. The two-storey terminal on the ground floor houses the check-in and arrival area as well as the baggage claim area. The upper floor houses the security checkpoints and a total of 23 gates. Some of these are equipped with passenger boarding bridges. Almost half of the gates, i. e. gate 13 to 23, are located in the South East Pier annex, which was opened just a few years ago. The terminal has duty-free shops and other shopping facilities as well as several airport lounges. Edinburgh Airport (EDI) has a large number of airlines serving UK and European destinations, as well as transatlantic flights.
