Edinburgh Airport Parking Options

Some hotels will also include parking for up to 15 days either in a fly-park room rate or on payment of a supplement.  This may be a cheaper option than arranging parking directly with a car park provider.  However, when comparing costs, remember to factor in any costs for getting to and from the terminal if transfers aren’t included in the hotel car parking rates, as transfers are generally included in the price quoted by car parks.  You can find the cheapest prices for parking at Edinburgh Airport by using the price comparison search box below.

Which is the best Edinburgh Airport Hotel?

I’d plump for the Hilton Edinburgh Airportas it’s the cheapest at £74 for room only and also the closest to the airport.   I don’t think I’d be tempted to pay £90, another £16, to have breakfast included at the Quality Hotel Edinburgh Airport especially as there would be another £3 on top of that to pay for the shuttle bus for two passengers.  The Norton House Hotel really need to have clarity on their airport transfer policy e.g. during which hours/days is the free transfer included, it’s no good to potential guests saying it depends on availability of the driver.
