I have gone through the various forums on this subject and what I have gathered is that its best to pick up a car at the airport..one, since there are many options you can choose from and two, its easier to drive out of Edinburgh from the airport than traverse the city.
We are a family of 4 travelling to Edinburgh from London end May. Plan is to arrive at Waverly bus station by the Megabus from London and then rent a car for our onward journey to the Isle of Skye for a three day trip..returning the car after three days at Edinburgh.
Could someone please tell me
1) how I can get to the airport from Waverly coach station?
2) What would the fare be?
3) since it will be 4 of us travelling (3 adults and 1 Child) will it be cheaper to hire a taxi?
4) I read in one of the forums that one has to pay an airport surcharge just to enter the area where the rental company booths are. Is that true?
any pointers, tips and suggestions in regard to my query will be of great help. Thx!
