The cost of an official licensed City BLACK TAXI from Edinburgh Airport to the city centre will cost approx £30 and use meters set by City of Edinburgh Council. If you are returning to the Airport and need a lift then call us or download our iPhone or Android app.

Split the cost between you in a 5 or 6 seated vehicle and save money. A single tram ticket costs £7.50. A Taxi carrying 6 passengers will cost approx £5 each. You’ll have the luxury of using the bus lanes without having to stop at each stop!

We accept all major credit and debit cards including American Express.

To pre-book your licensed taxi call 0131 228 1211 when your flight lands and your taxi will be waiting for you by the time you get to the pre-booked pick-up point. Otherwise, you can book online by using our Smartphone App or our online web booker. Please make sure that you provide us with a mobile telephone number and flight number so that we can monitor your flight arrival. Please call us on 0131 228 1211 if you are being held up in the arrivals hall. Payment will be taken by the driver at the end of your journey by cash, credit or debit card.
