top tips

Our research boffins have been busy gathering useful information for parking at Edinburgh Airport all to make your life that little bit easier.

  • Book early. Book airport parking at Edinburgh sooner rather than later - the nearer you get to your departure date, the higher the price will be.
  • See what our customers say. Every review on our site is a real opinion from a real person to help you make an informed choice.
  • On-airport car parks are conveniently located within the perimeter road with short transfer times. A great option if being close to the airport terminal is important to you.
  • Off-site car parks near Edinburgh Airport offer fantastic value with regular transfers - the perfect choice if you're planning to get there in plenty of time. A little further away from the terminal building so leave at least 30 minutes as a rule of thumb.

...Very convenient. When we arrived we dropped off the keys and there was already a bus waiting to drop us at the airport, no waiting around. On the way back we just walked out and got on the bus straight away again. Not too far from the airport, about 10mins drive. On the way.....

Mr George - Long Stay Parking
