We are a group of 10, traveliing to Edinburgh in September. I would like to ask whether you know of a reliable company that will take us from the airport to our apartment in central Edonburgh and back.
Two taxis from the airport rank will take you all, about £50 in total. Don't bother trying to book a vehicle to pick you up, just use the taxi rank. For the return journey just book it at your destination for the return journey with the taxi driver who took you there. I am sure you know exactly when you want to return to the airport. There are three taxi companies in Edinburgh, all are reliable, all charge the same rate as they are strictly regulated by the city council.
Great advice from the first post. At Edinburgh airport there are two ranks. One is black cabs that can easily take 2x5 or the rank beside it is people carriers. In the event you have small children and have booster seats etc people carriers may suit.
At peak times and international flight arrivals you can queue for some time. In that case I would pre book. I just tried to find the price on shuttle direct and it was £285. Round trip. Compare that to 2 taxi round trip £100. If money is no object then edinburgh airport has a good transport website. Good luck.
Taxis don’t require child booster seats.
Just jump in two Taxis instead of faffing around trying to find Pre Booked Shuttles!
Taxi do not require child booster seats but some parents carry foldable boosters that prevent a seatbelt cutting in to the child neck on journeys, whether it be taxi or hire cars or coaches. Of course we do not even know if there any children in this party so we may be debating the merits of booster seats for no reason at all.
Thank you all for your advice and guidance.
No, actually, the youngest of the party is a 13 year old. So he will not require a booster seat.
So, using two taxis for the round trip would cost around £100 in total?
Yes, should be about £25 per taxi each way.
Where is your destination in the city centre?
East Claremont Street.
£25/£27 should take you there.
Per taxi, per way, right?
