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.

customer reviews

...The car park is easy to find and once parked, a bus comes to where you are parked to collect you. Airport is next door so very quick transfers. Same on the return journey. We would use this service again...

Mr Young - Secure Airparks

...Very convenient way to securely park your car should you be going away for days. Totally recommended...

Dr Seetohul - Secure Airparks

...Always use flying scot wouldn't use anyone else, really easy to find, not too far from airport (2 minutes from airport), transfers regular, staff really nice and polite...

Miss Johnstone - Flying Scot Parking

...Automatic plate recognition meant it was one button push to get in and parked. Then shuttle was quick and easy, only a couple mins to get there. Same for return. Very impressed...

Mr Tavendale - Secure Airparks

...This was one of the slickest park and fly experiences we have ever had. We dropped off the car at the depot and it was there again on our return. The courtesy bus was prompt and the staff all extremely pleasant. I would definitely use this park and fly again...

Mrs Molloy - Low Cost Parking Edinburgh

...Very glad we booked this service. Everything worked as expected & it was only slightly more expensive than long stay parking. The additional cost was very worthwhile, particularly as we had a lot of bags. I will definitely book this again...

Mrs Ranford - Park And Fly Personal Parking

...Sorry I will not be able to comment on your service as unfortunately I did not use it. We had to cancel our holiday as my mother died that weekend and wre not able to go. I don't know if there is any form of recompense for this?..

Mr Henderson - Secure Airparks

...This is the first time I've used Secure Airparks and would definately use their services again. Everything worked first time. Found a parking space easily and a bus was coming round as we got to the stop. On the return journey, again a bus was pulling up as we arrived.....

Mr Andrew - Secure Airparks

...I found LCP to provide a very efficient service and would be very happy to use them again. The transfer only takes 10 minutes. The only down side was that it was difficult to find the LCP site at night. It would be helpful if they erected a sign at the turn-off...

Mr STRACHAN - Low Cost Parking Edinburgh

...No issues at all. Really near airport. Number plate recognition so no paperwork needed when arrived at car park. Park car and go to one of seven bus stops. Bus came within 5 mins at airport in another 5. Return journey go to bus stance 3 bus came in 3 mins back to car park.....
