Mini Rental Edinburgh

Mini hire with Edinburgh Car Rental

For those who enjoy driving a quick and agile car, we would recommend hiring the Mini Cooper S or Mini JCW, which are both widely regarded as an excellent 'hot hatch' and near ideal for some of Scotland's more winding and scenic roads.

Need a bigger Mini? Then consider the Countryman and Clubman models both of which are aimed at families but still have a fun and quirky feel!

"Everything went really well with the rental. The staff at the office were extremely helpful and accommodating on both ends of the rental. I typically rent Mini Coopers for our holiday road trips and I've yet to be disappointed."

"Every minute of the "car hire experience" with your company was excellent. You made our trip/drive along Scotland to be unforgettable, romantic and was the best way to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary and birthday! We felt you were truly interested to help us get the convertible mini and we enjoyed it very much."

"We had a wonderful experience with the car hire. From arriving and checking in at desk to enjoying and driving the car, everything was great. We will definitely do this again when visiting Scotland and we highly recommend to anyone in need of car hire as well."

"I only have good things to say about our car hire experience :-) Everything went smoothly from pick up to drop off. I must admit that my husband was a little dubious about the whole many scams going around...and was hesitant to pay up front without seeing an 'official' rental contract.

Apart from not getting detailed information about where exactly to pick the car up, I've nothing detrimental to say. I particularly appreciated your intervention / immediate help when it came to resolving the afore-mentioned issue - thank you! The car was new, the service great, the price definitely fantastic value...all in all a very positive experience and I'm glad I put my trust in you :-)

You'll definitely be my first call should I need to hire a car in Scotland again."

"The car was nicer than what we expected .....that is something very very appreciated from a client.

The version cooper, the equipment and the color were very nice.

The only that I would have appreciated more would have been the automatic gearbox ....because for people that normally drives on the left side the manual gear is most difficult thing to do when you drive in UK.

Anyway I was so happy of the car that I was thinking to buy a car exacly like that one here in Italy (where there is even more sun :) )"

"The car was perfect. We loved the Mini Cooper S, it's a very nice little car which is great for the curvy roads on the islands (although you have to take care a bit regarding the ground clearance, since some single roads are in a quite bad condition).

We had a good experience with your company. It was the first time we've rented a car and I think we'll do it again.

The only thing which was a bit time consuming was that we had to wait approximately 1 - 1.5 hours

Before someone came and we could give the car back and leave. Although, we also arrived earlier than expected (in the middle of the afternoon).

Anyway, that was just a minor detail and we had a really good experience with EdinburghCarRental."

"Cost was very reasonable compared to an 'ordinary' rental, and everything was dealt with quickly and efficiently.

The car was great fun, I'm glad we had the weather to enjoy it fully."

"The service was wonderful from pick-up to drop-off. Zero hassles. Although we didn't get the exact car we wanted, we came up with some alternative plans which still guaranteed a wonderful rental car for my holiday. The price was equal to, if not better than, standard rental car companies. I was worried about the max mileage as I rarely see that with rental companies anymore, but doing a little math for our trip showed that it wasn't going to be an issue at all. If I ever travel to Edinburgh again, and I'm sure I will, I'll definitely hire a car through your company."

"We enjoyed the Mini Cooper very much! It was a bit difficult knowing whether we were communicating with Steven or Graeme, but all our communications were friendly and helpful.

Although we weren't aware of it, we did some damage to the Mini when we hit a curb on a round-about. With your narrow country roads with nearly no shoulder, it's no wonder that Scotland produces some of the best race car drivers anywhere! I believe that Steven and Graeme were both very fair, even generous, when estimating related costs, and they've been helpful since, forwarding reports needed for us to file an insurance claim here.

Thank you all for your patient interactions and personal services."

"The rental was FABULOUS! It was such a gorgeous car to drive though in retrospect, not the best for the NC500 due to its hard suspension. We never opened up the throttle. In fact, we were overtaken once by an original John Cooper Works! It flew past ...

Guess what? We've just bought a brand new Mini Countryman diesel. We pick it up this week from the Brisbane Mini dealership!!!

Thank you and Graeme so much for making our NC500 such a memorable trip. Doing it in a Mini was extra special too. We've been recommending you to a few friends too.

Have a lovely Christmas!"

"We thank you for the service offered, Graham was super helpful and polite! He swiftly processed papers for the hire together with payment and refund of deposit money in a matter of days. Resulting in a super quick pick-up and drop-off.

We loved the car and were happy with the choice. All the extras, especially the sat nav, was super ideal for our trip. The drive and the scenery were exceptionally beautiful which made the trip even more memorable!

I will definitely recommend your services to anyone who would like to rent a car in Scotland."

"I was quite satisfied with your service, I consider fair the value that I paid for the service. The service from the very first contact was very fast and friendly. If I return to Scotland I would use your services again, which I recommend.

The MINI Cooper S, fulfilled my expectations, I was surprised by the engine and the gearbox, I would say it is a type of car suitable for the narrow roads (specially single tracks) of Scotland. Fast enough, good riding and a very nice engine noise."

"Vehicle: loved the mini nice to drive, easy to park, excellent experience.

Service: Steven from the office was very helpful and explained everything well and thoroughly.

Price: I think was good. What made it better there no hidden extra charges like most car rental places.

Overall perfect experience will be using you guys in future when I come back again."

"Thank you again for the nice car. My daughter was very pleased that you waited for her when she collected the car. Also my son got practical information when returning the vehicle. The car was really nice, clean, not worn out and with reasonable mileage. The price was in line with the rest of the fleet.

If your customers have any concerns related to the Scotland and off roof driving, please assure them from my experience that when the sun is shining in Highlands nothing is better than driving a convertible! Have a nice summer!"

"We loved the car! We had amazing weather so the Mini convertible was a lot of fun to drive.

Costs were on the low side. We really appreciated the fact that we could rent the car on my name with my girlfriend's credit card. Every other rental company told us that we weren't able to rent the car because of this.

Also the fact of being able to pick up the car later than planned helped us out because our flight had a 1 hour and 30 minutes delay.

We will definitely book again next time we come to travel Scotland!

Thanks again for the great service!"

"We had an excellent experience and could not fault either the service, quality nor vehicle. Our trip went off without a hitch and a great deal of it was due to the excellent car we had scooting us around the Highlands.

Graeme was very helpful in the lead up and the service was professional and uncomplicated. Steven (I think is his name, who works over the weekend) who assisted us on the Sunday when we picked up the car was courteous and efficient and gave us great tips for driving around the Highlands and pointing out key features of the Mini Countryman we hired. I cannot give him enough praise for the high level of customer service he showed us. We would appreciate if you could pass our thanks.

The car itself was a dream to drive - zippy and small enough to drive around the Highlands while being large enough to fit 3 of us and all our luggage. The car was spacious, comfortable, and drove like a dream. We tend to go on a lot of driving holidays through Europe and the UK and so have used many car rental companies. While we were happy to pay a little more for a "nice" car, we found the price extremely reasonable and the service impeccable. Pick up and drop off was seamless and convenient.

Thank you kindly for a wonderful experience. Should we return to Scotland, we would be glad to hire from you again."

"We enjoyed everything about the Mini Convertible. Your service was excellent, both on the front end of the rental and the tail end. I couldn't ask for a more flexible (schedule wise), friendly, helpful and expeditious agent. The vehicle was immaculate on pickup. The cost was as expected and even included an upgrade to a premium model which was well received (and perhaps needed on some of the more steep and windy roads we traveled). Overall, I would and have recommended your service to my friends and family."

"We both thoroughly appreciate our experience with Edinburgh Car Rental. The Countryman S was absolutely perfect for the North Coast 500's winding, mountainous roads - it really became a third member of the trip. Being able to hire the car we wanted made such a difference for our road-trip holiday. The customer experience was excellent, too. I've attached a few pictures from the trip."

"We had a wonderful experience and I have told all my friends if they ever go to Edinburgh they must hire a Mini. Communication was excellent from the onset and Graeme was very nice. My husband and I hope to return to Scotland sometime soon and we will definitely do another rental."

"In a convertible mini during, unfortunately, quite a rainy week we did manage to get the roof down once driving along the shores of Loch Fyne which was probably the highlight of the trip! The price was more than I'd have paid from a regular airport car-hire but I knew that upfront and my priority was getting to drive a car I wanted to drive - and that's what happened and I got a lot of enjoyment out of it. So it was undoubtedly worth it! Sure we'll be back in touch the next trip. Thanks for all your help along the way and making it happen."

"Our experience with renting a Mini Cooper for our time in Scotland was wonderful. The vehicle was in excellent shape and ready when we arrived. I own a Mini at home and driving a familiar vehicle made us feel safer (especially since we were not used to driving on the left side of the road)."

"Everything about the car hire was brilliant. The price was very competitive with the 'name brand' car hire places, the service was excellent and the vehicle was a hell of a lot of fun to drive, especially around the North Coast 500 route. I'd do it again. :)"

"My daughter and I both enjoyed the Mini. It was great to drive and we had fun on our travels. We reached the top of Scotland. If I could afford to buy one back home in Adelaide I would but need to win the lotto for that."
