SIXT's location at Edinburgh City Centre

Our Edinburgh City Centre car hire is in the Omni Q-Parks on Greenside Row, next to Waverley Station. Within sight of Balmoral Hotel, it's only about 300 yards from Princes Street, the main shopping boulevard. From the station, take the Calton Road exit, under the arch and turn right into Greenside Row. The car park entrance is on your left, five minutes from the station. From Edinburgh Bus Station turn right into York Place, onto Broughton Street till the roundabout, then onto Leith Street, and turn left into Greenside Row. You can return your car to the same place when leaving Edinburgh. 

Explore Edinburgh City Centre in your car hire

There's lots to do in the centre of Edinburgh. The Edinburgh Playhouse is right next door to our car park, and Calton Hill looks out over the city centre, atop of which you'll find the Scottish National Monument, Nelson's Monument and Robert Burns' memorial. Princes Street is a shopper's paradise, so take a short drive there as well. And no visit to the city would be complete without a visit to venerable Edinburgh Castle, one of the most famous tourist attractions in the UK.

I had extremely good rental service here. The car was the same model I booked (Peugeot 3008), price was exactly the same (no surprises). I did not take any extras or instances. I was lucky and there was no queues and I received car key very quickly also return was quick and efficient as well.

Despite all the 1 star reviews, I'm more than satisfied with the service received! Received an upgraded class vehicle for the same cost. Communication was great, could send details over the e-mail beforehand to make sure all the paperwork is in the right place and was smooth collection and drop off.


Only downside was that I couldn't keep the car! :)


Awesome roadtrip and good memories comes now in mind when mentioning Sixt name! Will be returning soon!
