Still not convinced? Here are some other options

Rail transport to Edinburgh Airport

There’s no direct train route to Edinburgh Airport. If you’re arriving into Edinburgh Central Station from outside of the city, you must transfer onto the Airport Express Bus Service, which then makes the 7 mile journey to Edinburgh Airport. It is frequent, efficient and affordable, but again, if you’re travelling with young children or loaded down with bags, it adds one more layer of inconvenience to your journey.

Coach transport to Edinburgh Airport

There are frequent coach services to Edinburgh Airport from Edinburgh Central, but this of course means a separate journey into the city centre, which could mean a cab ride, an added expense not factored in. Then there’s the journey back from the airport to home. What seemed like a small inconvenience when you were flying out becomes a huge headache when you’re jetlagged, tired, over it and just want to get home.

Taxi transport to Edinburgh Airport

In terms of convenience, getting to Edinburgh Airport by taxi is probably the next best thing to taking your own car. But when the taxi arrives at the door, you must be ready to go. Taking your own car means you can load in the likes of heavy bags or push chairs hours before you need to go. It’s also a mobile storage unit. If you decide at the last minute not to take something on the flight, you can just leave it safe and secure in the boot.
