Things to do upon arrival at Edinburgh Airport

Edinburgh is one of Scotland’s top tourist destinations. The history and culture within the city are as good as you can imagine. Time your visit right and you could be one of the lucky people to attend one of Edinburgh’s many festivals. The most famous is the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The Fringe Festival occurs every August and is one of the ingredients that has made Edinburgh a HUB of European culture. Even if you miss out on a visit in August, the winter months in Edinburgh make for the perfect romantic break. Watch in a play at the Edinburgh Playhouse before getting warm and cosy by the fire.

Renting a car from Edinburgh airport not only gives you access to the cultural side of Edinburgh but also its natural beauties. The roads around Edinburgh offer some of the most beautiful views of the many lochs that can be found in the Scottish Lowlands.

Tips for Driving into Edinburgh

Driving within the city centre can be somewhat difficult at times due to restrictions and one-way streets. We would advise planning your route into the centre before travelling. Once you drive out of the centre, the roads become beautifully easy to manoeuvre. Edinburgh is connected to a huge variety of roads heading out in all directions. If you want to make your way across Scotland in the shortest space of time, the M8 will take you across to Glasgow. From there you will have easy access to the huge amount of stunning national parks on the west coast.

Scotland’s roads can get quite icy or snow-covered in the winter months. If you’re visiting Edinburgh during this period it is important to be aware that although the roads are cleared regularly, there may still be some slippery conditions.
In Edinburgh, cars drive on the left-hand side of the road and the steering wheel will be found on the right-hand side of the car.

Speed limits vary on the roads leading from the airport to the city centre. These changes are clearly signed and the majority of roads within the centre are 30mph zones.

Clean Air Zone

When planning a trip, keep in mind that certain cities have established a Clean Air Zone. Click here to check that your vehicle emissions meet the required level or a fee will be chargeable.

You can rest assured when hiring with us, all Europcar vehicles comply with Clean Air Zone requirements.
