Getting around in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the second most visited city in the UK, and it isn’t hard to see why: stunning architecture, a millennium of history, and the largest cultural festival season in the world are just some of the attractions to be found in Scotland’s capital. Hire a professional chauffeur service with Blacklane as an alternative to taxi travel and cruise the city at your leisure, with your choice of three classes of vehicle: Business Class, our standard service; Business Van, an SUV for airport transfers and larger groups; and First Class, our service designed for special events, for example during the Edinburgh Festival.

Edinburgh airport transfer

Edinburgh International Airport is outside city limits to the west. When you book a door-to-door airport transfer in Edinburgh as an alternative to a taxi, you can enter your flight details, allowing your chauffeur to track exactly when you will land, so they can be there waiting for you at Arrivals. Our service also includes a waiting period of an hour from your chauffeur, in case of any delays in customs or baggage claim. The travel time between the terminal and downtown Edinburgh is around half an hour, so you can simply sit back and relax as you are shuttled from the airport to your destination.
