Taxis or private rentals - Edinburgh Forum
In August we fly to Edinburgh and I look for a cab or a private rental which takes us about an hours drive from the international airports to a city. Usually I think that your best choice is to take a cab from your final location to you in Edinburgh.
By jumping into a jetty in front of Edinburgh International Court, I think you'd be paying a high fee for the taximeter! So, you're going to Edinburgh and don't know exactly where you're going when you exit the terminal? Was it a burdened issue from a first-time posters and perhaps a taxi/private hirer wondrously comes to praise her virtue?
"Approximately an hours from the airport" This will take you down to the border, up to Perth or past Glasgow to the west. So, yes, you might get more useful answers if you specify a goal. Agreed that you may get a better rate if you make a reservation in Advance instead of going to the taxis.
However, if you are reading other topics, you will discover various frauds and unstable services from *some* private individuals disguised as cabs. We have three "licensed" cab operators that operate through Edinburgh and the airports. Cities Cabs, Central Cabies and Comcab. Many private landlords exist; capital cars are probably the largest (they certainly do the most advertising!), but they have aroused some critical interest in TA if you are looking for it.
No private rental cabs are permitted to collect persons on the street or at cab stands. Aeroplane cabs could be £143 to Coldingham, Reston is similarly far away. Alternatively, take the 100 air link to George Street, go to St Andrew Square Busstation and take Perrymans 253 to Reston.
Obviously, this is the least expensive of the options. Coach to Reston costs £10.40 per person. I would definitely choose a private rental instead of a regular taxis for a trip of this length if you like. D-Dootsie - you're right, this is one of the few cases where the big blank slug would be a better one.
Is it ever useful to take the Berwick trains and take a cab back to Reston?
