City Cabs are the official taxi provider at Edinburgh Airport and have a large presence at the Airport, but if you would rather pre-book your taxi then you can call 0131 228 1211 when your flight lands and can have a taxi 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.

When you arrive please make your way to the dedicated Taxi rank by following the signs for ‘TAXI’.

If you have pre-booked your taxi then please make your way to the pre-booked pick-up point which is located in the multi-storey car park behind the main taxi rank.
