Step 3 - Know how to get to your accommodation in Edinburgh!

The easiest option to get to your accommodation is to book our airport transfer service before you leave home. You will be met at the arrivals hall in the airport and taken directly to your accommodation. We offer this service from the main Scottish airports as shown below although we can also arrange pickups from other locations on request.

 - Transfer from Edinburgh International Airport £45 one way

 - Transfer from Glasgow International Airport £120 one way

 - Transfer from Glasgow Prestwick Airport £140 one way

If you do not wish to use our transfer service please refer to our "Airport to City Centre Guide" which gives full details and prices of how to get from Edinburgh International airport to the centre of the city. From here you can catch a bus or train to your accommodation. Our residential accommodation is all situated either close to or in the centre of Edinburgh and full details of their locations can be found in the accommodation section of the site.

If you have booked to stay in host family accommodation full details of how to get to the accommodation from the city centre will be sent to you at the time of booking. Please make sure you have this with you when you arrive in Edinburgh!
