Location information for Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the second most visited city in the UK, receiving more than one million overseas visitors each year. The city is steeped in history and culture, and the thriving arts scene is renowned throughout the world. Visitors arriving in the city usually find cheap car hire in Edinburgh is the most practical way to travel.

The magnificent Edinburgh Castle overlooks the city, its cannons pointed towards the main shopping area. Tours of the castle are available and there is adequate car parking for car rental visitors. The cobbled streets leading to the castle are known as the Old Town and have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Edinburgh Festival is a vibrant affair, attracting artists and visitors from across the globe. Comedians, dancers, musicians and poets congregate in the city to participate in the annual event. Cheap car hire in Edinburgh means you can escape the long queues for public transport and enjoy the comfort of your own vehicle.

There are oodles of sights to explore in Edinburgh, but the Museum of Childhood and Murrayfield Stadium should not be missed. Shoppers can enjoy a world class shopping experience on Princes Street, which is the city's main thoroughfare. Budget car rental visitors can enjoy touring this magical city in style.

If you have arranged car hire in Edinburgh, you have the freedom to visit out-of -town attractions without relying on public transport. The Royal Yacht Britannia, docked in the Port of Leith, is definitely worth a visit. Budget car rental visitors can stray off the beaten path and experience areas of the city that the arranged trips omit.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Ecarz.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
