Explore Edinburgh with your rental car

The city is divided into two parts known as new town and old town. Old Town has preserved much of its medieval buildings including Edinburgh Castle which holds the annual Edinburgh Military Tattoo with massed pipers and fireworks during the festival season. There are many places of interest including St. Gile's Cathedral and the Royal Museum of Scotland, during the 16th century old town saw a tendency of 'high rise style stone buildings' which give Edinburgh a unique skyline. During the industrial revolution many underground vaults were inhabited by immigrants, today you can take tours to see the underground city. New Town built in the 18th Century holds a very Georgian feel, which was created by James Craig, a 22 year old who won a competition to design expansion of the city. New town holds many interesting sights including the National Gallery of Scotland, and the Scottish Academy building.

Adrian was great and we got through the process very quick both picking up and dropping off. No messing.

Colin M.

All round experience was great from booking to pickup and return.

Exceptional service all round taking into account, the world we now live in wrt to Covid-19.

Many thanks to the staff and SIXT.

The staff was nice and helpful during the pick-up and drop-off. However, there were hidden extra prices that were not mentioned in their website during ordering! Also, the cleanliness of the car was not perfect and one of them used my car without a mask just before handing the keys to me.


Update: after my bad (2/5) review and my complaint, they called me to apologise and I got a refund (the fee I claimed I was not informed about). Correct follow-up, I hope they will inform future costumers better.


I had some issues with my house move being delayed and the team were all so helpful. They did whatever they. Hold to help and explained clearly what they could bad couldn’t do. Definitely will be using them again!

Staff have been very helpful on all occasions. Sometimes a bit slow for pick-up and drop-off if there is a cross-over of hires so leave enough time (c.30 min). I was very lucky with my lucky dip, and got a fantastic vehicle for the price. The cars are new and great condition, and the majority seem to be premium brands.


Things to note:

- Very small ad-blue charge on vans based on final mileage, it's in the small print.

- Take photos or videos before departure, as the camera picks up things that my eye didn't, and I have been asked for evidence after every hire.

Graeme M.

Pleasant staff, vehicle very clean, no complaints on that front. Just didn't get the van I'd booked due to very late incoming vehicle and was not offered a decent discount for the forced second van hire I now had to make.
