Hertz in Edinburgh Airport

Edinburgh Airport delivers you deep into the northern heart of the United Kingdom. The airport itself, Scotland’s busiest, sits just to the west of the city and is ideally located not just for the capital, but also for Glasgow to the west and the Highlands beyond.

If you’re heading to the city, prepare yourself for a celebration. The city is renowned for its colourful events calendar, including the world’s largest arts festival, The Edinburgh Fringe. Art, music, stunning architecture and striking areas of natural beauty - Edinburgh really is the city that has it all.

You’ll find our pick-up point in the Car Rental Centre just outside the terminal building. Simply follow the signs, we’re easy to find. We’ll help you find the right vehicle to get out on the road as soon as possible, no matter if you’re here for business or a holiday in one of the UK’s most endlessly fascinating cities.

A quick guide to Edinburgh

Edinburgh Airport is a great base for exploring the British Isles. You’re a stone’s throw from Scotland’s capital, but also ideally located for rural adventures in the Highlands. This is an endlessly exciting city where you can wander past the river, see where JK Rowling wrote Harry Potter, delve into the past at the castle and eat fantastic local fare.

Of culture and castles

Immerse yourself in the historic streets, such as the Royal Mile, and admire the imposing presence of Edinburgh Castle. This is a hilly city, built on a number of volcanoes (don’t worry, they’re extinct) and the up-and-down nature of Edinburgh gives it much of its character.

For the ultimate view, take a trip up to Arthur’s Seat. This hill over the city offers spectacular vistas. From here you can marvel at the spectacle of Edinburgh, taking in the elegant shopping streets, open parks and stunning Georgian architecture.

Descend and explore the phenomenal art collections at both the Scottish National Gallery on The Mound and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. There’s culture everywhere you look if you visit during the Fringe or the International Festival – comedy, live music, concerts and theatre both mainstream and experimental. It’s a busy time for the city though, so book ahead to snap up accommodation and the best seats in the house.

The gift of golf

Scotland is renowned for having some of the best golf courses in the world. So if you’re looking to work on your handicap, there’s no better place. Less than two hour’s drive from the airport is St. Andrews, often referred to as the ‘Home of Golf’. Play on courses graced by the professionals and visit the Old Course where the game was first played over 600 years ago.

Continue your golf practice at Carnoustie Golf Links, a coastal course considered to be one of the most difficult in the country. It’s no wonder golf fanatics travel from all over the world to play here. Carnoustie has played host to a number of Open Championships and oozes character, a true test for any golfer.

The Scottish larder

The fresh produce in Scotland is famous, with game from the Highlands and fish from the lakes both a speciality. Both are treated beautifully at The Kitchin, Tom Kitchin’s Michelin-starred restaurant on the Leith waterfront. This is the place for local produce, always in season, cooked sensitively and presented beautifully. Highland venison comes as both a terrine and a tartare, while North Sea turbot is a delight with roast chicken jus. Even the sea buckthorn served with a dessert of orange meringue and Granny Smith apple sorbet is from East Lothian.

However you plan to spend your time, car hire at Edinburgh Airport is a great place to start. From golfing to shopping and even stepping back in time to discover Scottish history, your time in the north promises to be truly memorable.

Driving in and around Edinburgh

Leaving the airport and commencing your Scottish adventure is straightforward. Edinburgh Airport is just eight miles away from its mother city, which is reached quickly via the A8. The route is easy to follow and, again, well signposted. When you reach the centre of Edinburgh, keep an eye out for the many cyclists and also the city’s trams.

The A8 also takes you west from the airport, quickly joining with the M8 and M9. These motorways connect you to Glasgow, Scotland’s second largest city, and Sterling, home to many medieval castles and monuments, in under an hour.

The M9, snaking north-west, also takes you to one of the island’s most gorgeous areas, with The Trossachs and Loch Lomond in easy reach. This is the Scotland of your imagination – still, serene lochs, heather-covered hills, bosky forests.

You’ll also find yourself within comfortable reach of the English border. You could take the A68 to Northumberland, a picturesque county in the north of England, driveable in about two hours.

Throughout the UK you’ll drive on the left hand side of the road, overtaking on the right. Seatbelts are compulsory for all and mobile phones can’t be used while driving. Speed limits vary by area and will be clearly signposted in miles per hour. Built-up areas within Edinburgh will have a limit of 30mph (48 km/h), while motorways have a top speed of 70mph (112 km/h).
