Local Car Hire at Edinburgh Airport

Situated on the southern bank of the Firth of Forth, and the eastern edge of Scotland's industrial belt, the country's capital city, Edinburgh, is renowned for its iconic castle, stunning architecture and its long and colourful history. Popular historic attractions include Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile and Holyrood Palace, the British Queen’s official residence in Scotland. Other, more modern, attractions include the Scottish Parliament Building and Edinburgh Zoo, while the huge, ancient volcanic rock formation, called Arthur's Seat, which looms over the city, is Edinburgh’s most famous natural attraction. Edinburgh is also a thriving, forward-looking, commercial city, making it an important destination for business travellers and tourists alike. The most convenient option for getting around the city and beyond is to hire a car. For those visitors arriving at Edinburgh Airport, which is located in the Ingliston area of Edinburgh, eight miles west of the city centre, Enterprise Rent-A-Car's Edinburgh Airport branch is located in the airport’s Car Rental Centre, which is just a few minutes’ walk from the terminal via a covered walkway.
