Edinburgh Airport Hotel and Parking Reviews
Parking and Transfers
Close to both the M8 and M9 motorways, many passengers opt to drive to Edinburgh Airport. However, deciding where to park your car can be a challenge. There are three choices for secure car parking, including parking at your hotel, choosing a secure car park, or enjoying an exclusive meet and greet package. Explore the options in more detail below.
1. Parking at the Hotel
To avoid the worry and hassle of driving to the airport on the day of your flight, why not travel the night before and stay in a hotel? At Edinburgh Airport, there are a number of hotels which offer car parking for guests.
Holiday Inn Express at Edinburgh Airport is one cheap hotel at Edinburgh Airport with parking – one week’s parking is included in the price of this accommodation. All you need to do is drive straight to the hotel on the day before your flight and find a car parking space. You can then check-in and enjoy a relaxing night before your flight. In the morning, a free hotel transfer will take you straight to the terminal, and this service runs 24-hours a day. When you return after your getaway, take the free transfer back to the hotel and pick up your car.
2. Off-Site Secured Parking
Rather than parking in the airport, often the most affordable hotel and car parking deals are found with off-site secure car parks like those we offer at APH. APH parking at Edinburgh Airport has achieved the police-backed initiative Park Mark® Safer Parking Award, which is awarded to parking facilities that provide a safe environment for both vehicles and customers. It includes the use of CCTV, 24-hour staff and security fencing.
NCP Scotpark is just a 3-minute transfer from the airport terminal coach park. On the day of your flight, simply drive to the car park and up to the barrier. Your number plate will be read, and the machine will issue you a ticket automatically. Park up and catch one of the transfer buses that run 24-hours a day and depart every 10 minutes. On your return, catch the transfer bus from Coach Park Stand 8 which will return you to the car park.
What’s more, APH has partnered with Secure Airparks – the only airport parking service at Edinburgh Airport that will drop you off and pick you up right outside the main terminal. To park with APH or Secure Airparks, drive to the entrance barrier and follow the instructions on the entry screen. You will be issued a ticket which you need to keep until you come back.. Next, simply park your car and head to the transfer station. Transfers run on demand and take just 1 or 2 minutes. When you arrive back at the airport, call or text the number provided on your ticket to ask for a transfer to pick you up. You need to wait at Stand H (International Arrivals) which is at the front entrance of the airport. The bus will then take you back to collect your car. Drive up to the exit barrier, insert your ticket and the barrier will lift.
Do be aware, however, that each car park has slightly different transfer times to get you to the airport.
- NCP Scotpark: 3-minutes, with buses running every 10-minutes, 24-hours a day.
- Secure Airparks: 1-2-minutes, with buses operating on demand, 24-hours a day.
- APH Car Park: 1-2-minutes, with buses running every 5-10-minutes, 24-hours a day.
3. Meet and Greet
For maximum luxury and convenience, a Meet and Greet service with Maple Parking Edinburgh is an excellent choice. After you stay the night at your airport hotel, drive to the airport and follow signs for Pick-Up Zones R-S. Take a ticket from the barrier, wait for it to lift and then head for the right-hand corner of the Pick-Up Zone. Here you’ll give your car and keys to a uniformed Maple Parking Edinburgh driver who will park your car on a secure site nearby. It’s then just a 2-minute walk to the terminal. On your return, collect your baggage and call the number provided. Your car will be delivered back to you at the same Pick-Up Zone so you can jump straight back in your car and get on the road.
