Car hire Edinburgh

Edinburgh car hire facilities are plentiful when visiting the Scottish capital. SIXT has conveniently located branches across the city centre, at train stations and Edinburgh Airport. Our top-class economy cars are affordable to all – perfect for short stays or business trips, and to get around the city quickly. Families on holiday can choose something like a 4X4 for lots of visibility when taking in the sights of Edinburgh. We only provide newer, sought after models, which offer quality and reliability. Our friendly 24/7 service is always there to help you pick a first-class hired car at an economical price.

Sixt Services in Edinburgh

You might not be spending much time in Edinburgh, so a compact or saloon might be all you need from us. If you have some leisure time on your hands, then you can treat yourself to a luxury car, a 4x4 or even a convertible or sports model, and go sightseeing at will. They all come with bookable extras like sat navs or child seats, and you can add an additional driver if you want to share the load with someone else on your trip. It doesn't matter if you need a one-day rental, a weekly rental or longer – we can always meet your needs.

What to do in Edinburgh

Our Edinburgh car hire services give you the independence to explore this global cultural centre, and Edinburgh Castle is one of the most famous tourist attractions in the UK. Since you have a car, you can make your way up to Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags, driving via scenic Dunsapie Loch. The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art is another bucket list item you can tick off here.  

June & July 2021 in Edinburgh

The summer months are an ideal time to explore Edinburgh, with long days and July generally being the warmest month. Restrictions have also been loosened in recent weeks meaning there is plenty more to do in the city this June and July. And with your own hire car, you can easily explore the city or choose to head off for trips all around Scotland.

  • Festival season kicks off: Edinburgh is of course famous for its many festivals throughout the summer. While some of the more well-known festivals come later in the summer, there's still plenty to enjoy in June & July. The Edinburgh International Science Festival is scheduled to run from the 26th June to the 11th July with a host of in-person events, while the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival kicks off on the 16th July.
  • Enjoy the outdoors: There's plenty more opportunity to get out into the city this summer with leisure facilities and tourist attractions opening back up. The Royal Botanic Garden celebrated its 350th anniversary last year and is home to over 13,500 species. Head out in the evening to one of the city's many beer gardens or drive up to Leith for dinner in the hip port district.
  • Get out of Edinburgh: Why travel abroad when you have so much at your doorstep in Edinburgh? Hop in your hire car from SIXT and head to the historic town of St. Andrews or explore nature for the day at Loch Lomond. For longer holidays, drive further into the Scottish Highlands or take the 5-hour journey to the picturesque Isle of Skye.
