Located in the east of the country, Edinburgh is Scotland’s capital. It is positively awash with things to see and do and also provides great access to the Highlands and other rural areas for those who hire a car.
Edinburgh itself is a bustling city and the second most popular tourist destination in the UK. The skyline is dominated by Edinburgh Castle, backdrop to the Military Tattoo and the Royal Mile runs down from there to Holyrood Palace, forming the heart of Old Town.
The city can become very busy at certain times of year, in particular when the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe are on, but a trip north over the Forth Road Bridge opens up a world of natural beauty along the Lothian coastline, while to the west lies The Trossachs National Park. Heading even further afield, the Cairngorms National Park, the largest in the British Isles, offers a heady combination of solitude and impossibly beautiful views.
Edinburgh van hire
Europcar also provides van rental from a range of locations across the Edinburgh area. One-way van hire gives you the freedom to avoid having to make a round trip, while hourly rental can help keep costs down. Daily van hire rates are of course also on offer.
