What does SHUTTLE BUS mean?
SHUTTLE BUS is an option which some rental car agencies offer in order to pick up the car. On our website, you can select a local supplier directly located at the airport. However, SHUTTLE BUS is a free bus or minibus service provided by the local car rental agency. The bus can be easily found in the front of the arrival hall and will take you to the car rental office in order to pick up your car. If you have any difficulties with finding the SHUTTLE BUS of your rental car agency on arrival, please call the telephone number from the local company on your car rental voucher. They will instruct you on how to find the bus and arrive at the office.
What is Collision Damage Waiver with excess?
Collision Damage Waiver it is a damage insurance coverage that is available and usually included in the rental rate. The Collision Damage Waiver most likely has an excess amount, which you will be responsible for. The security deposit will be blocked at your credit card on arrival at the local office. The deposit is an amount for which you can be held liable in case of damage/theft of the vehicle. It means that the particulate amount of money can be taken from the blocked if you cause any damage to the car during the car rental period. Damage to or loss of tires, windscreens, glass, and undercarriage may not be covered by the Collision Damage Waiver. When the car is returned in the same conditions as it was picked up from the office your security will be unblocked.
Do I have to leave deposit for car rental company renting the car in Edinburgh?
On arrival by the local car rental company, you have to provide a credit card in your name. A security deposit will be blocked for the rental period. The deposit is usually the same amount as liability excess of Collision Damage Waiver. As soon as you return the car in the same condition as it was recollected the security deposit will be unblocked. In case that you cause some damage, you will be charged from your deposit. Please note that the amount of the deposit depends on the car category and the local rental car agency. The amount of deposit you will find in the terms and conditions of the particular car.
How are rental prices calculated?
Please be advised as an online car rental broker our prices can changing constantly. Since we are working with different local companies, we can negotiate the prices better and do have most likely better rates than the local companies. However, our rental day is based on 24 hours. We do not rent cars per hour. If you wish to rent a car for a few hours only you have to pay a full rental day. For instance, if you decide to pick up the car at 10:00 am and drop it off the same day at 22:00 pm you will still be charged for 24 hours rental as we do not provide rates for half day.
The minimum age for car rental depends on the local car rental supplier. Different suppliers may request a different minimum age in order to rent the car. We always recommend seeing the full terms and conditions for the selected car and car rental supplier in order to check that information. In some cases, the rental agency may apply for an extra charge for a young driver. The amount of young driver fee may be different for each supplier. Before you decide to rent the car and you are a young driver, please make sure that you are able to rent your car with selected company. Otherwise, the local company will refuse to provide the car.

It was a great rental experience thanx! The guys at Dollar was exceptionally friendly and gave me a super nice car, really more than I expected! Please be so kind as to indicate on the confirmation letter where these various car rental companies stop with their Shuttles at LHR Airport Terminals. It’s always a mission to find the Numbers of the BusStops relating to the company. If it’s the HotelHoppa bus, please indicate accordingly as his bus takes longer and costs £5 (cash only!!)
