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.
