Car Rental Advice - Arnold Clark?


We will be in Scotland in April for 6 days and plan to rent a car from Edinburgh airport when we arrive.

I noticed that Arnold Clark was recommended a few times on some posts, but there was one comment regarding it being a little further out than other car rental places at the airport. Is this true?

Does anyone have any experience with Arnold Clark car rentals from Edinburgh airport? Would you recommend them? Their prices seem to be a little better than some of the other options, but I want to make sure the cost savings are worth it.

Thank you.

Edinburgh, United...

Arnold Clark are a large, long-established and very reputable firm in Scotland. I can't help you regards the airport rentals but you can be confident dealing with them.

Arenold Clark at Edinburgh Airport has an office at a long term car parking facility - not wothin the terminal building.

But it is very straight forward - you call the office from a courtesy phone then go to a meeting point for the pick up bus just outside the terminal.

Pick up is usually within 5 minutes of making your phonecall.

Every guest we had renting from Arnold Clark was happy with the service & the cars, when we used them ourselves (in Dundee) they were very courteous, professional & easy going at the same time. Cars are clean and well maintained.

Prices are usually a bit better then the main car rental companies

All the car rental companies keep their cars in long term car parks - none of the car pick up points are at the terminal, so really it takes no longer to get to Arnold Clark's cars than to anyone elses. For companies like Avis and Hertz you still have to get a shuttle service from outside the terminal building.

It is just that the Arnold Clark office is not in the terminal building, but as explained, it's pretty straightforward to get to.
