After three successful years at Edinburgh Airport, Easirent has decided it's high time to open a branch in the historically tourist-attracting city centre.
The new branch, located at 21 McDonald Place in Bonnington is only a 1.1 mile drive from Edinburgh's Waverley Train Station; the main railway station in the Scottish capital and the second-largest main line railway station in the United Kingdom.
Plans have been in place for a long time, but the company decided to get the branch set-up right before the Christmas season started as Edinburgh is a highly-popular destination for Christmas shoppers and Christmas Market-goers.
"We're excited to be up and running because there are already bookings coming in and the new cars have arrived from Volvo, Audi, Mercedes and the rest" new manager Liam said, talking about the new fleet. "It's a grand location for the city because customers can get to the train station very easily after they drop their hire car off, it should become a popular hire destination if everything runs smoothly." Easirent Edinburgh City will be working closely with its' sister branch at the airport to utilise bigger vehicles and vans for hire, as the airport location has a larger parking facility.
It's taken a lot of hard work to get the branch built, decorated and fully equipped for starting up on the 22nd Novemeber, but the Easirent team are proud to be opening their front doors for the first time this week to Edinburgh City customers looking to hire a car.
The new location will offer excellent customer service, a tailored knowledge of the city and its' best tourist spots. Customers can also expect competitive prices and an extensive array of vehicles to choose from, including models from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and Vauxhall. They also offer a wide variety of products to personalise your car hire package according to your needs such as additional driver options, insurance protection packages and satellite navigation. Easirent Car Hire provides customer service and customer support from 07:00 - 20:00 so that you can enjoy a worry-free car hire package, making your rental journey smooth and efficient.
You will definitely need a Sat Nav to navigate the tangle of medieval streets in the historic heart of Edinburgh along with its one-way systems and other driving restrictions. The centre of Edinburgh is, however, fairly compact so depending on where your holiday or business hotel is based you might want to leave your vehicle there and stroll around the city on foot before using your car hire to explore further afield.
Most street parking in Edinburgh city centre is designated for residents only and strictly regulated so take advantage of multi-storey and underground car parking or use the Park & Ride options.
Everyone is familiar with the silhouette of Edinburgh Castle that dominates the city skyline, but if you take a short drive east out of the city you will discover the often overlooked ruins of Craigmillar Castle. Dating from the 14th-century this castle has played a part in much of Scotland's often violent history. While in the city itself be sure to visit the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen's official residence in Scotland as well as St Gile's Cathedral and the Royal Yacht Britannia. If you are brave enough join an after dark tour through haunted medieval streets such as Mary King's Close or play safe and take the children to Edinburgh Zoo for a fun day out. If you are lucky enough to be in Edinburgh during August then be sure to drop into some shows at the Fringe Festival.
