Car hire atEdinburgh Airport Arnold Clark

Scotland’s busiest airport is located 8 miles outside Edinburgh City Centre. Our rental branch is just outside the airport terminal. Don’t let the fact we aren’t inside the airport building put you off. Our dedicated shuttle bus will be there to pick you up from outside the airport terminal and drop you off at our front door so you can easily collect your rental car. We’ll also drop you back off at the airport terminal building when you come to return your hire car too!

If you are travelling to the Scotland but Edinburgh doesn’t suit your plans. You can always collect your rental car from our branch at Glasgow Airport or even Inverness Airport.
