How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Edinburgh
Make your journey to Edinburgh that little bit easier by following these practical security tips:

  • Be sure you know the location of your boarding pass and passport. You don’t want to hold up the queue when you’re asked to produce them.
  • Take off your belt, jewellery and shoes before approaching the security checkpoint. Items such as these are not allowed in the body scanner.
  • Laptops must be taken out of their protective carriers and placed in a tray before being X-rayed.
  • When you approach the security checkpoint, you’ll be asked to place all liquids, gels and creams in a separate tub for inspection. Make sure they’re all packed in containers smaller than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and sealed in a clear zip-lock bag.
  • Think about your choice of footwear. Slippers are awesome because they’re a piece of cake to step out of for the airport security checks. Try wearing a pair on your next flight!
  • Some countries have stringent quarantine laws. Think about where you’re journeying to and whether or not you’re allowed to travel with fresh fruit and meat.

How to find cheap flights

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Airfares offered on Friday tend to be the cheapest, according to flight demand on Travelocity.ca in 2021. Purchasing your airfares on a Thursday or Saturday can also provide better value, however our advice if you’re looking to save money is to avoid booking on a Wednesday or Sunday. Our data shows that those two days have the highest ticket values on average, so keep this in mind if you’re browsing flight deals.

 

What are the cheapest days to fly?

Frequent travellers may already know this, earlier in the week is often the cheapest time to fly. Flights departing on a Monday are the cheapest of the week. Since flights towards the middle of the week tend to be more popular, this causes the prices to rise. This is why, on average, airfares booked on Travelocity.ca in 2021 were most expensive for Wednesday departures.

 

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Here’s the deal: It is typically possible to start comparing international airfares on Travelocity.ca up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to our 2021 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest fares appearing 2-4 weeks prior to their travel dates.

*According to flight demand on Travelocity.ca from January to December 2021. Savings are subject to change and may vary depending on selections made.

Flights To Edinburgh

One walk through the streets of Edinburgh, Scotland, and you’ll think you’ve been sent back to the days of William Wallace. A medieval castles dwarfs the city. Cobblestones line many of the streets. The sound of bagpipes drift out of building windows down the alleyways. If you prefer kilts and tam o’shanters to jeans and a baseball cap, Edinburgh Airport (EDI) is your jumping-off point for an unforgettable adventure in the Scottish Highlands.

Transportation From EDI

After your Edinburgh flight lands and you’re taxiing to the gate, it will be tough not to imagine being at the top of Edinburgh Castle during one of its many sieges. Can the plane just fly you to the tallest turret? Probably not, so make sure to check out the bus lines located next to the car rental center on the ground level of Terminal 1. The buses have service to different parts of the city: Grassmarket, Dean Village, and the Financial District, as well as to the hotels close to EDI. There’s also an efficient tram service leaving every 10 minutes from the Edinburgh Airport tram stop into the downtown area, putting you in close proximity to major attractions. If you’re looking for some local knowledge, catch a taxi cab outside of baggage claim and pick your driver’s brain about Old and New Town, Arthur’s Seat, and where the best Scotch whiskey can be found.

Scotland’s Capital is Waiting for You

Book your cheap flight to Edinburgh on Travelocity to save on your airfare ticket—you can use that money to buy an authentic kilt, eat an extra plate of Dundee cake, and ride a bike in the city’s out-of-use railway lines. And if you bundle your flight to Edinburgh and hotel together in a vacation package, you’ll save even more sterling pounds. When you want to experience a land far different from your own, Travelocity can help make that happen.
