Fetch your luggage, stroll out of Edinburgh Airport (EDI), and pick up your rental car. Which one you jump into depends on where you’re headed. If you’ll be spending most of your time driving in downtown Edinburgh, around 6 miles from the terminal, select something small. A compact car with good maneuverability will be perfect for those busy city streets. But with a wealth of things to see, like the glorious cliffs of the surrounding area, you may want to make a few pit stops. A bigger vehicle, like an SUV or a full-size car, will make longer road trips more comfortable.
