Car hire in Edinburgh and East Lothian

Edinburgh Airport's affordable car rental services allow visitors to the Scottish capital the freedom of roaming from Edinburgh in the south to Inverness, home of Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster, in the north, plus the highlands, and Glasgow in the west; allowing you to get a glimpse of all aspects of Scotland.

Edinburgh Airport is situated a short distance from Edinburgh City, and having a hire car makes the adventure begin as soon as you step off the airplane! Close to the city itself are a series of spectacular golf courses. 

A short drive will take you to the Muirfield golf course, which has hosted the pretigious Open Championship 16 times so far. Many of the courses are within sight of the dormant volcano Arthur’s Seat, which dominated Edinburgh’s background, while others have Edinburgh Castle to look upon, an inspirational sight that may or may not distract the golfer!

Carry your clubs in the spacious boot of your cheap rental car from Budget and save the bother of carting it from hotel to course. If you have brought the kids along, a day trip out of town and into the Lothians will delight the entire family, with the National Museum of Flight – home to the grounded Concorde – along with a series of other attractions providing entertainment and intrigue.

Linlithgow Palace is set within parkland filled with birds and its very own loch, while the palace itself is stunning in its architecture. Children of all ages will delight in the Go Ape adventure park, where zip lines and climbing nets beckon. Rental cars allow you to explore these places, along with all the other delights the area has to offer.

Edinburgh and its surrounding areas are scattered with medieval and historical castles that will enthuse any history buff. From Edinburgh Castle to Craigmillar, each is rich with a past riddled with fascinating stories.

Take time out to drive from one to the other and experience life as it was hundreds of years ago, or explore the beautifully-styled gardens and parks where each is set. Car rental is a cheap and easy way of getting from one to the other.

East Lothian is an area outside of Edinburgh city that is home to quaint villages, beautiful beaches and a whole host of activities. This is an area that is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts, with cycle trails and hiking routes crisscrossing it.

Rent a bike and transport it easily with cheap car hire from Budget, where specialised needs can be catered for in advance. The Scottish Seabird Centre offers a sight to be remembered with over 150,000 gannets relaxing on Bass Rock, a fantastic attraction in itself. From here, you can take a boat ride across the bay to the Rock, which Sir David Attenborough described as a “Wildlife Wonder of the world.”

The seaside also allows visitors to try water sports such as kite surfing, and what could be better than to have a hire car that is cheap and cosy after splashing through the chilly waters of the North Sea all day? From exploring the ancient ruins to following the path of The Da Vinci Code, Scotland offers an enormous amount of sights to see and places to visit, and getting car hire cheap from Budget is a great way of exploring this mysterious land.
