Making travel easy - our tips to a smooth journey to Scotland

Got a trip to Edinburgh on your mind? We’ve got some exciting news for you that will save you from the long drive hassle. You can now choose a super cool and eco-friendly way to reach your destination! How, you ask? Well, let us spill the beans!

Trains and cars combined

Instead of spending hours on the road, why not hop on the train and experience a scenic journey? Trust us, it’s way more fun! Once you arrive in Edinburgh, you can grab a car locally and hit the road like a true explorer. It’s a win-win situation — you get to enjoy the picturesque train ride and have the freedom of a car at your disposal.

Going greener

By choosing this greener option, you’ll also be doing your part to save the planet. Taking the train and hiring a car locally means you’ll be cutting down on emissions, and that’s a big thumbs-up for Mother Nature. So, you can explore Edinburgh guilt-free, knowing you’re making a positive impact.

Fly to Edinburgh, our cars are located at the airport

Were the train tickets extortionate and you’ve decided to fly instead? We totally get it if budget is a concern. It’s a head-scratcher how flights can sometimes be cheaper than train tickets. But hey, we’re all about options here, and we want you to have an awesome trip regardless of your budget. For all you flyers out there, we’ve got a shiny new car parked near Edinburgh Airport just waiting for you. We are keen to be as green as possible here at Hiyacar and appreciate that flights are not as eco-conscious as other methods of travel, car sharing is a great way to offset carbon emissions by reducing the amount of cars on the road.


So, whether you’re hopping on a train or soaring through the skies, we hope you have an absolute blast up North! Enjoy the breathtaking sights, dive into the city’s fascinating history, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
