Free Parking near Edinburgh Airport

Parking for free whilst you are away on holiday is not the most recommended method, especially if you are out of the country for a long period of time.

We recommend using a free parking spot if you are flying on a domestic flight and will only be leaving your car for a maximum of 24 hours, although there are no restrictions for our free parking spots.

From here, can take the short walk to Edinburgh Gateway and jump on the tram for the 10 minute journey to Edinburgh Airport. The tram runs into the night so can accommodate flights at all times.
