Edinburgh Car Hire

Professional car hire Edinburgh from a modern and comprehensive fleet of hire cars. We are confident that you can select an appropriate car for your rental requirements. Our car hire fleet starts off from small 3 or 5 door versions through a mixture of medium and large family type saloons. Use the form above to check what cars are available for booking online or simply make an enquiry.

Van Rental Edinburgh

Modern commercial van hire Edinburgh for any type of moving you might have to undertake. We have a wide variety of vans on our fleet which are ideal for moving house, office, furniture, equipment or anything similar. Our  van hire fleet can cover any type of eventuality in Edinburgh. When you select a van type it will show helpful load dimensions, these are only guidelines so if you are moving something which requires exact sizes then get in touch with us for specific sizes.

Other Car and Van Rental Related Services

We also provide one way self drive hire where you can collect your vehicle then have it picked up anywhere within mainland England like an airport, business or home address. One way rentals can save you a lot of time and money so consider this option if you do not have to make a return journey to Edinburgh.

Another rental service is our car and van short and long term leasing. Both commercial businesses and the general public can now take advantage of our contract hire leasing schemes. If you need a lease vehicle for between 28 days and 12 months we provide a modern choice of cars and vans which you can find more information about by selecting Flexi Lease from the Bookings and Enquiries form above.
