Top Tips for Hiring a Van in Edinburgh

  • Edinburgh people carrier hire is popular with people with a variety of needs: whether you’re going away for a weekend with friends or family, to a concert or a wedding, people carriers are ideal for those who need a comfortable vehicle for a large group of people, especially over longer distances. They’re also popular with people who travel in short numbers but have a lot of luggage and need a bigger people carrier to transport them. There are people carriers available for short- and long-term hire, so you can take all the time you need. You can also find out-of-hours pick-up and drop-off at most car hire agencies, so you can find something that fits into your schedule.
  • At Edinburgh Turnhouse Airport (EDI), there’s a wide variety of people carriers available at a number of car hire agencies, from small, compact people carriers ideal for smaller trips, to larger people carriers with more power, seating capacity and storage space. Finding your Edinburgh people carrier hire right off the Arrivals lounge is a great way to save money and time on transport to/from the airport.
  • As a major city in Scotland, Edinburgh receives plenty of national and international visitors, which means that traffic can be an issue during rush hour. To ensure a smoother experience, avoid driving in the early mornings from 7:00 to 9:00 and in the evenings from 17:00 to 19:00. Steer clear specifically from Morningside Road, Bruntsfield Place, Nicolson Street, South Clerk Street and St. John’s Road.
  • Driving in Edinburgh is not much different than anywhere else in the UK. However, you should bear in mind that some streets can be quite hilly in comparison to other parts of the country, so if you’re driving with a heavy load, extra care is necessary. Also, if you need to park uphill, make sure to turn the front wheels away from the curb and pull the handbrake to secure the vehicle.
  • 25% of our users found a people carrier hire in Edinburgh for $155 or less
  • Book your people carrier hire in Edinburgh at least 6 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • February is typically the cheapest month to hire a van in Edinburgh, with prices around $65 per day. The most expensive month is August, with average prices of $145 per day.

FAQs About Hiring a Van in Edinburgh

  • What locations are available for people carrier hire in Edinburgh?

    Apart from Edinburgh Airport, which has the most variety of agencies and people carriers at affordable rates, there are also other locations situated in Edinburgh city centre, mostly around Waverley Train Station. Whilst most Edinburgh people carrier hire is located within a few steps of the station, there are also some agencies close to Edinburgh Harbour. The city centre hire agencies are particularly useful for residents who don’t want to travel to the airport, but that isn’t as advantageous for visitors who arrive by plane, as taxi return fares from the airport to the city centre cost about £40.

  • Where can I park my hire people carrier in Edinburgh?

    In addition to paid street parking in the city centre, there are also plenty of multi-storey car parks, such as the ones near Waverley Station, Blackfriars Street (next to Radisson Blu Hotel Edinburgh City Centre), Edinburgh Castle Terrace, St. Mary’s Street (near Travelodge) and many more. The farther you go from the city centre, the easiest it will be to find free parking on the street; although, those can be limited. There are also plenty of Park & Ride car parks located outside Edinburgh, but then you’ll need to get a bus or a tram to reach the city centre.

  • What types of people carriers are available in Edinburgh?

    There are plenty of people carriers available to suit most styles and budget. The Peugeot 5008, the Toyota Verso and the Seat Alhambra are excellent models of passenger people carriers with five doors that can comfortably seat up to seven people. If you need something bigger, the Ford Transit is more spacious and can receive around nine people. Those looking for more comfort and luxury can opt for a premium experience with an Opel Zafira Tourer or a Ford Galaxy.

  • How does KAYAK find such low van hire prices?

    KAYAK compares van hire prices from all major car hire companies such as Thrifty, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, Payless and more to find you the best deal.

  • Which car hire companies in Edinburgh hire vans?

Instead of taking an authorization of 500GBP, like every other rental place in the world, they took a deposit. When I called the call centre, even they were surprised. They took the money at 1.78CDN, and when returned, it came back at 1.66CDN. FOR A LOSS!!! BE AWARE OF THIS SCAM!! I won't be renting from Enterprise ever again after this.

Pros:

Car was very good, clean and comfortable. No issue with the car.

Cons:

When I returned the car, the assistant manager went straight to one tyre and pointed out a couple of dents in the tyre wall that he claims I must have caused as the tyres were in perfect condition before the rental. When I told him that the pre-rental check of the car only included the bodywork and that the guy mentioned that damage to the wheels was normal and didn't count, he said he'd check with the guy that I picked the car up from. The guy was in the back office and didn't come out but the assistant manager assured me that I was invited to inspect the tyres beforehand. The was simply not true. I was charged £300 to replace the tyre. Outrageous.

Cons:

The car hire and Collision Damage Waver insurance were sold as a package and yet it was clear that Enterprise were very uncomfortable with this. They made me sign a complex disclaimer before I could take the car. Additionally, the telephone number on the certificate of insurance was in the USA and I felt that it would be difficult to organise a claim if it were needed.

The car was to come with a GPS but it wasn’t installed. They don’t provide portable GPS units. Fortunately we have a cell phone with us and the charge cord fits. They were very helpful in explaining the car’s features and the car manual was supplied.

I felt pressured to upgrade to a car model that I did not need for my trip. When I arrived I was told that the car I had reserved many weeks in advance would not be ready for quite some time, but I could upgrade for minimal cost. In the end the minimal cost turned out to be much more.

Oct 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

The car worked and was cheap.

Cons:

Drop off and pick up was incredibly slow, the shuttle runs like once an hour and the staff is in no hurry either. Literally took me 90 min to pick up and drop off, and there were no lines to wait in. If it weren't for the incredibly cheap rates, there's no way this place would be in business. The service was really lacking, the rental office looks like an old shed, and the staff is dishonest, trying to charge you for "damage" to the vehicle that clearly was there when you picked up the car. Definitely not worth the hassle to save a few bucks.

A car was available for me to drive. That was good. The bad: 1) Original quote was for £ 275 - the local Hertz desk charged me £ 691 and tried to charge me over £ 800!! 2) I requested an automatic transmission and got a stick 3) there was a huge scratch in the rear passenger door 4) There was no return sign at the Inverness airport for Hertz, all the other rental car agencies were represented but not Hertz. We had to drive around for 10 min trying to find it, and luckily saw the tiny Hertz sign upon leaving the airport. Kind of a disaster regarding the drop off.

We did not know until we got there that they did not take American Express. Also, were forced to add on an expensive daily insurance fee and they charged my credit card $1500 additional as a deposit that would not be credited back for a month! The entire rental felt like a bait-and-switch, as the rental cost a lot more than we were quoted. Also, when we returned the car, they went over it with a fine tooth comb and mentioned a scratch below the door that was there already. They said that they would get back to me “after inspection.” I am assuming that they are going to attempt to charge me something out of the deposit that I will have to fight. Unfriendly people that run it seem to be working for the Russian mafia. I honestly did not feel safe at all!! I would never use this service again!

Friendly staff, however, was very disappointed with the false promise of an uograde upon collection. I requested a VW golf or simular and ended up with a smaller Kia that couldnt fit any more than 2 people comfortably and had to out my suitcases on the back seat rather than in the trunk. Unfortunately i dint think i'll be renting with you again as this vehicle was completely unfit for purpose.

Pros:

The car was great. Excellent gas mileage, handled well, and was absolutely impeccable when we picked it up. Service was kind and friendly.

Cons:

The return process has been a little frustrating. First, I was not told that I would need to keep the copy of the paperwork stating our agreement to give to the Avis rep on Orkney. Had I known that, I would have put it with the other confirmations and information that I was toting around instead of panicking. Second, I found the paperwork, gave the keys to the Avis rep, he said he would get it South from there, and I had nothing further to do. Unfortunately, I got an email from Avis telling me I was in breach of contract because the car hadn't been returned. This issue has not been resolved and is currently my only frustration with the rental.

We had an excellent friendly experience!. The service lady at the country allowed me to change our car pick up time and upgrade our car. The valet fella was very friendly, courteous and did a great job of showing to use the digital dashboard functions. I definitely rate my experience 5 Stars!

They close at 1pm on weekends. We missed their close time and when we showed up the next day they had canceled our reservation. They then offered us the same reservation for double the price for a day-of rental

Really great experience! Didn’t know if this was a really secure place when I first booked. Upon arrival into the parking lot it was clear to me that I made the right choice! We were greeted with an upgrade to a brand new vehicle to take into the Scottish highlands! The car was very clean and the staff even offered to drive us to the train station to catch our train into England when we were done with our rental. McNicolls was above and beyond what I thought it would be. Staff was super friendly too!

The staff was very professional and friendly, and I never felt like they were taking advantage of me as a foreign customer, unlike another car rental place in London. The young man who checked out my car was very responsive and efficient. The only minor complaint is their location is slightly difficult to find.

Total lack of transparency regarding the daily price. We prebooked/prepaid a class and the end charge was double what we expected. No mention at the counter. You don’t get a copy of the invoice at drop off - you get it days later and then they make it difficult to see the charges/details. Unacceptable customer experience with Sixt.

Pros:

They say they credited me after not having car I ordered available - have not verified that yet.

Cons:

They did not have my car “because my flight was delayed” got a much smalller car and they offered no refund until I complained on social media. Upon return tried to ding me for a problem with tire. The person on desk day I arrived was rude and tried to upsell me

7.6 Good

Jul 2018

KAYAK

Cons:

I had difficulty finding both the pickup location in St. Pancras, London and the dropoff location in Edinburgh. I had to walk around and ask in several buildings before I found the St. Pancras office. Then, when I used Bing to find the address of the Sixt office in Edinburgh, the first address than came up was incorrect. It was many miles from the correct location. The folks at another car rental office were good enough to direct me to the correct address.

2.0 Poor

KAYAK

Pros:

Returning the vehicle was quick and simple.

Cons:

Given different size vehicle than was shown. Being charged more than double the original amount to get correct size vehicle and zero customer service from both Kayak and Sixt. Vehicle was received filthy with wrappers, chewed fingernail clippings, and dirt everywhere making it impossible to verify any current damage prior to assuming responsibility for vehicle. Disgusting experience that I don't intend to repeat with either company.

Cons:

We made a same-day reservation and when we showed up, the agent wouldn't honor the reservation. He said they had no cars, third-party broker reservations take at least 24 hours to come through, and dismissed my 'but I have a reservation' with, "but you haven't paid anything for it yet, have you?" He was completely unapologetic and uncaring. We paid for a taxi from the train station to the airport for this reservation and ended up having to pay several times more to get one of the few available cars at a competitor at the airport. Complete failure and I'm astonished Kayak and Dollar associates with this franchise.

6.0 Okay

KAYAK

Cons:

Company called partway through my rental to tell me to return the car because it had been sold! They offered an exchange but no compensation for the hassle of returning the car. Also tried to claim damage with small scratches on one tire rim - I was able to prove that they were there when I rented the car. You need to run your finger around the rim when picking up the car to check for tiny scratches.
