Edinburgh Car Rental

Welcome to Edinburgh Car Rental. We're an established car hire company based here in the beautiful capital city of Scotland.

Every year, we carry out thousands of successful rentals to residents and businesses in Edinburgh and the Lothians as well as providing car hire for visitors from all around the world.

With a number of vehicle collection points around Edinburgh, including the City Centre, Edinburgh Airport, Newbridge and Waverley Train Station we've got a location near you!

We can help with many requests that our competitors won't, including vehicles with an automatic transmission, collection from Edinburgh Airport, long term car hire and one way car rental.

One of our specialities is car rental in Edinburgh for young drivers. Unfortunately, renting a car in Edinburgh, when you're under the age of 25, is a difficult task but we may be able to offer you a hire vehicle when other companies won't.

We're very proud to be able to offer specific model vehicles for hire in Edinburgh from a selection of manufacturers including BMW, Mini and Toyota. We are one of only a handful of companies able to guarantee a make and model of rental car in the UK, especially in Edinburgh!

If that wasn't enough we also have a selection of practical vans for hire too.

We're genuinely based in Edinburgh and can supply you with vehicles from our own fleet and those of our rental partners. We're also happy to offer local travel advice too.

Book your rental today, chat to us or visit our contact page to send us a message.

"I had a great experience regarding vehicle, service, cost and everything, and I really enjoyed the experience. If I need to rent a car in the future I will definitely contact you again."

"Everything's great! Both you (Michael) and Graeme are responsive and helpful, all the vehicles are top-notch. I love the flexibility of your pick-up and drop-offs so I can plan my travels better.

The fact that you're truthful when refunding my deposits is also important to me for my peace of mind - unlike other car hire reviews that I read who'll do anything to rip customers' money off! The hire rates are also affordable. There might be cheaper hires out there but it couldn't beat the peace of mind!

Overall it was great, I love your flexibility on many things, but if there could be options for unlimited mileage for young drivers like there are for other car hires; it would be perfect.

I have rented with you several times, and will definitely come back again."

"The car hire was great - the process was very smooth, and we were happy with the car model and pricing, particularly as we had been let down by a booking through an online company (Holiday Autos) which confirmed our order but didn't actually have a car available. I particularly appreciated that you responded on a Sunday when most of the other car hire companies in town were closed (and the airport car hire centre didn't have any cars available)!"

"The whole process was amazing! You really made our holiday. The people, the service and the car itself were amazing! We're recommending your company to everyone who wants to visit Scotland and hire a car!"

"Everything was perfect, the car very well, the right price and the arrangements to rent it very satisfactory. Thank you very much Michael for your treatment and the ease of renting the car with a debit card.

If we return to Scotland or someone asks me, I will recommend that you rent with you."

"Our five weeks in the wonderful northern and western extremes of Scotland were very successful, in no small part due to the excellent RAV 4 rental you arranged. (It might have even been better if roads in Orkney and the Hebrides had been just a wee bit wider.)

The actual process of picking up the vehicle (with Graeme) was very quick and efficient. And it was also very smooth when we arrived back on June 18th.

Anyway, the predetermined cost was charged to my credit card, and the accident guarantee was also remitted a few days later.

And should we come back yet again to Scotland (which is quite likely), we will certainly contact you and your firm first."

"We had a great experience with your company. Not only you helped us with choosing a car and every detail about insurance and other fees, you picked us and dropped us off on the airport, which was more than we could hope for. Everybody was super nice to us and polite (sometimes you don't get that as a student)."

"I had a positive experience. Enjoyed a free upgrade due to availability and free insurance after a paperwork delay, both of which I enjoyed. Car worked well, service was helpful, cost was reasonable - no complaints."

"Thanks again for the help with the booking. The service was great! Graeme was very welcoming and thorough at helping me get to know the car a bit. The car worked great and we had no problems driving to Glencoe and back. Thank you for the service and I hope to be back soon!"

"Everything went very well thank you. The vehicle was very good, as was the service - quite a relaxed atmosphere about it, which was really great considering all the fine print and daunting amounts of info you get from other car hire places. Thanks again - I'll definitely recommend to friends travelling to Edinburgh!"

"Our trip to Scotland was great as well as our car rental experience. We were really satisfied with the upgrade (from Golf to Avensis) even if at the beginning we were a little afraid that it was not an automatic. Anyway, we really enjoyed our car as well as the cost."

"Our experience with hire from your company was great. We hired a small three door Volkswagen and were given a bigger Mini Cooper for the same price in the end. Car was clean and in very good condition. We are definitely planning to hire a car from your company in the future. We will definitely recommend it to our friends too."

"The overall experience was great. The car we got was also very new and clean. The price was also very reasonable. We will definitely be back for more rentals."
