All rides booked in advance with SIXT ride have fixed prices, so the price you are shown before you complete your booking will be the price that you pay.

SIXT Services in Edinburgh

Book a private hire car in Edinburgh

  • Airport service: You can, of course, book a private hire taxi with SIXT to or from Edinburgh Airport. If you are flying into Edinburgh, either at the start or end of your holiday, your minicab driver will be waiting for you inside the arrivals area of the terminal to collect you. For flights out of Edinburgh, we can pick you up anywhere in and around the city. We have vehicles available for up to 6 passengers, if you are travelling as a family.
  • Events in Edinburgh: For any event in the city, SIXT can provide a car to comfortably get you there and back. For special events like weddings and proms, why not choose our business or first class option? A professional chauffeur will get you to and from the venue in a stylish black car. 
  • Hourly bookings: Rather than booking a journey from one location to another in Edinburgh, you also have the option of booking for a number of hours at a time. Your driver and car will then always be available for the time you have chosen to get you where you need to be - useful if you have a number of appointments throughout the day.
