Car Hire Edinburgh City

About Edinburgh City

Located in Lothian on the Firth of Forth's southern shores, Edinburgh is Scotland's capital city. More than 480,000 people live in Edinburgh, which is Scotland's second-most populous city after Glasgow. With car hire in Edinburgh, you are free to explore a city rich in history and culture and surrounded by beautiful sea and mountain scenery.

As well as being the seat of the Scottish parliament, Edinburgh is also home to such national institutions as the Scottish National Gallery, the National Museum of Scotland, and the National Library. It is the most significant financial centre in the United Kingdom after London, and many Scottish companies have their headquarters here. The city has a long tradition as a centre of education, specifically in medicine, the sciences, engineering, and law, and the 16th-century University of Edinburgh rates consistently among the top universities in the world.

This is a richly historic city with landmark buildings including Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, the churches of St. Giles, Greyfriars and the Canongate, and a substantial Georgian New Town built in the 18th century. Both the Old Town and New Town are included on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. The city is also famous for the Edinburgh International Festival, which is now the world's biggest annual international arts festival in the world. In 2004 Edinburgh became the world's first UNESCO City of Literature.

Car collection at the Airport in Edinburgh was quick and trouble free. Also received a competitive rate on my rental.

I travel regularly on business and have used your site for many years. This was my second time renting in Scotland and the service was as always great. I'd have no hesitation whatsoever recommending you to anyone

Great experience with your company in Scotland. Must admit it was a bit of a trek to the pick up location but your rates were so good that was only a minor issue. The car was great too by the way. Thanks again.

Originally booked for 2 people but when another 3 friends joined us, the changes were made by Nova without a fuss. The customer service team were fabulous. Well done Nova from a very satisfied customer.
