I was hesitant to book transportation through this company overseas, but everything was perfect. Our driver was nice, on time and the vehicle was extremely comfortable and they supplied bottled water! Highly recommend them for any of your transportation needs in Scotland.

He finally showed
Heather_D, Aug 2023
Driver eventually showed up but was not there waiting for us as described and did have some anxiety about it.
Needs to be more organized
GiGi_N, Aug 2023
My son and mother-in-law were traveling. And needed a ride from Edinburgh Airport to their hotel I had purchased this transfer weeks before the trip. I called to confirm that day and they reached out to my son that afternoon but when they got off the plane they couldn’t find anybody and it took about 30 minutes before they could reach anyone and finally got picked up. I was told that there would be somebody waiting for them with a sign with their name on it when they exited the plane and that was not so after 10 hour flight I didn’t want him to have to hunt around the airport with an 85-year-old woman to look for the driver. I think they need to be a little bit more organized. !!!
Driver did not show up!!!

The driver never showed up. There was no communication from the company. We ended up taking an Uber to our hotel.

It may be my fault but for whatever reason I thought that the pickup point was just past the baggage pickup spot
Bad Experience
Steven_S, Jun 2023
Was not met at the airport meet and greet area as expected. I had to call the local office who said they would have the driver meet me. 20 minutes later a women showed up and asked me to follow her. Never offered to help with my luggage. All she did was take me out to the taxi line and put me in a taxi to my hotel. Upon arrival at the hotel the driver wanted to get paid. I showed him my voucher and explained that i had pre-paid which he did not understand.
Great ride, interesting history.
Amy_G, Jun 2023
What a joy it was to not only get a nice ride to our room, but we also got lots of touristy information!!

teodora_n, Dec 2022
Nobody showed up to pick us up at the airport , so the money was lost. Never again will I book this experience
Horrid, left at airport
Doug_R, Aug 2022
No one ever showed up. Call 2 hours after we landed to tell us they were there. We had called them twice, still didn’t come . Taxi was much cheaper!
Marie_S, Jul 2022
Memorable in a negative way. Driver never showed up at the location cited. After calling vendor and relocating to another place and waiting 20+ minutes the driver still did not show. A second phone call was made and again we were told to wait another 20 minutes. The driver still did not show. Angry and tired we walked to a cab stand and took a taxi to our hotel.
Nope, don't do it.
Kim_R, Jul 2022
Horrible. Driver wasn't there even though I was in constant contact because our flight and luggage were delayed. Told us to sit in the Starbucks and wait another 45 minutes. Ended up hiring a taxi. Then argued with me about not giving me a refund. Would not recommend at all.
Driver great
Steve_M, Jul 2022
Confusion on pickup locations. We came in at Arrivals 1 and driver was at Arrivals 2. Instructions as to where to meet driver should have been clearer.
Expensive! Recommend using a local taxi firm for pre-booking
Leslie_B, Jun 2022
We prepaid for a taxi from the airport to our hotel since our flight was coming in late on Sunday night. Our flight was 30 minutes late so when we landed we called to let them know that we arrived late and that the driver should not leave. They told us to call again after we got our luggage. After we got our luggage we went to the exit to see if someone was holding a sign with our name. We did not see anyone, so we called again. Both calls were very expensive since we were on hold both times. Someone came with a sign with our name and took us to the prepaid taxi area. We waited for several minutes. There were two taxi's there. Finally, the prepaid taxi service at the airport called our driver, who was inside one of the taxi's but did come out until he was called. There were a lot of people waiting at the regular taxi stand and we thought that it was worthwhile to spend a little more money to prepay for a taxi than to wait a long time in line. There was also an airport bus service that was waiting even at that late hour. Our hotel pre-booked a taxi for us when we returned to the airport the following week. This cost us only $40 during rush hour and not the $90 we had paid for a trip without traffic when we arrived late on a Sunday night. If you want to pre-book a taxi at Edinburgh Airport, use a local taxi firm and not a worldwide service.
Paid for a ride from EDI that we did not get.
Karen_G, Jun 2022
The driver did not show up. We were supposed to meet him outside the baggage claim/customs/ immigration. He was supposed to have my name on a sign. We waited and waited. Called the emergency number twice. Was told he was running late. We waited more. Finally found a bus going to City Centre and as we were getting on the bus he called to say he was in his car in the “ holding area.” The bus driver said he could see the “ holding area” and there were no cars there. So we took the bus, had to walk several blocks before getting a taxi to the hotel. Please refund my credit card for the service we did not receive.
SalvatoreL, May 2022
My son and daughter where picked up at the airport. My son said to give the driver a 5 star review. He said the driver was really nice and friendly.
Tasha_N, May 2022
Driver never showed up, then offered no explanation. At least they answered the phone to tell us too bad, you’re on your own. They did get their money so I guess that’s a positive.

Our driver was absolutely fantastic as he gave us history of Edinburg and carried our luggage up the street to the hotel
A complete disaster
Armando_G, Apr 2022
The driver never showed up. He was supposed to be there at 23:50. The worst was that it was 2am and we were still at the airport, and the operator kept saying the driver was 15 mins away every 15 mins. It was a complete disaster, we ended up taking a cab.

Leo was an excellent driver! He arrived...
Georgi, Sep 2018
Leo was an excellent driver! He arrived on time, was polite and respectful, was a safe driver, and helpful. We carried our luggage from the airport to his vehicle then into the hotel when we arrived there. During the trip from the airport to the hotel, we was helpful in answering our questions about things to do in Edinburgh and in Scotland. We hope that we get Leo on our next trip....or his clone!
