For instance, you’ll be shown a baggage allowance which is usually one item of carry-on and one suitcase per passenger.

When you’ve found the right private transfer to Edinburgh airport, you can finalise your booking online. You will receive an email confirmation with an e-ticket, containing all the details of your transfer.

Your e-ticket

You will receive an e-ticket to your email address once you complete your Edinburgh airport transfer booking. Please keep this safe – it contains everything you need to know about your pick-up, including the date, time, pick-up location, drop-off destination and more. You will also find contact numbers on your e-ticket which you may need if you wish to contact us.

It’s important to read your e-ticket carefully before your pick-up date to ensure the details are correct. You will also need to present your e-ticket to your driver so make sure you have this to hand. We recommend printing it off and keeping it in your hand luggage – so you don’t need to worry about losing it in your hold luggage or your phone battery dying.

Where do I need to go to meet the driver?

You will find instructions of where to meet your driver in the ‘Find my pick-up’ section of your e-ticket. Whether you are travelling to or from the airport will determine this.

For instance, if you are booking an airport transfer to Edinburgh, your pick-up destination will be the one you entered during the booking process. This is usually your home or office address. We advise being ready to go 15 minutes prior to your pick-up time.

Alternatively, if you are on inbound flight and have booked an airport transfer from Edinburgh, you will be met by your driver in the arrivals hall. They will usually have a sign with either your name, hoppa, or the travel provider’s name.

What happens if I can’t find my driver?

Sometimes, unforeseen circumstances such as closed roads or traffic jams can make our drivers late. If this happens there’s no need to worry, just give us a ring on the number on your e-ticket and we’ll update you on their progress.

What if I’m running late?

If you are running late to meet the driver of your Edinburgh airport transfer, don’t panic. We know that delays can happen if your flight didn’t take off on time, or your bags took longer than expected on the carousel. If this is the case, you can ring us on the number on your e-ticket and we’ll let the driver know you might be a little late.

Your driver will wait for you for up to 45 minutes after your scheduled transfer time. Once this time has passed, we’ll send a new driver to pick you up. Please note that if you’re running late by more than three hours, you need to rearrange your Edinburgh airport transfer by speaking with us and your travel insurer.
