"I used this car park for a week! And never again, when arriving i was told that "because i only book the day before departing it ment my car would need to be parked in car park 2" (i was made to feel a pain), i was then asked to QUICKLY leave my keys with recption and jump onto the mini bus that was waiting. I was never asked to walk around the car with a member of staff to check the condition in was in on arrival, this is called a damge slip (i am led to believe). On returning i collected my keys went to check my car and noticed a dent in my back bumper and SWCRATCHES in my rear quarter, drivers side and also another 2 SCRATCHES on drivers door below my window. When reporting this to staff i was told "it's funny how you notice this when you return" evan though on the booking conformation it states "please check your car before departure, once you have left the flying scot car park cannot be held responsible for any damage. I am in the early stages of trying to get so compensation as the damage done to my FIESTA ST 07 plate will prob cost in region of £1,000- £1,500, the scratches look like the car has come into contact with bushes/tree branches in the week it was left at flying scot car park, i would not recommend using this car park i would rather park in the middle of edingbrough city centre for a week, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK, PAY FOR A SERVICE THAT YOU DONT GET, THEY SAY "INSURANCE COMPANY WILL PROB NOT PAY OUT FOR IT!!!!! WE WILL WAIT AND SEE!!!"May 29, 2007
"The parking area i usualy use was full so i had to be directed to another site, i had plenty of time so that was not an issue, but i did think that it was cheaper to park there only by £1 but never the less cheaper.
staff were young! and pleasant and they brought my car around for me.
with regard to your use of plastic boxes for the storage of car keys do you not reuse these items. I had a plastic key box left in my car and i assume the staff forgot to lift it up. I would like to think you recycled these items and not use them on a single use basis."
"Excellent service. Cheapest in the area. Very reliable and friendly drivers. Will certainly use again."May 29, 2007
"The site is very handy for the airport.The personnel are helpful and cheerful.However on the return journey we had an unfortunate experience of being left waiting for over 30 mins for the bus, at a time when there was little passenger traffic. I had followed the practice of tel. phoning the office after retrieving our bags. The reply was they would be only a matter of a few minutes and to wait in the bus stop 8.It required a further call to the office to remind them we were still waiting.It turned out the driver had gone to fill up with fuel, and thought someone else was collecting us.We were tired as it was very late in the evening, around midnight and obviously were not impressed with this service ! We have used Flying Scot on many occasions and not experienced this before...so what has gone wrong with the system?"May 29, 2007
"Excellent service from Flying Scot, hardly any waiting time and no hassles - just what you need when travelling.
Coming back tiresd and irriatble, nothing nicer than knowing your car is so handy - only a minute's drive from the airport.
Will definitely use Flying Scot again."
"Really hand for the terminal Drivers are prompt, very helpful and curteous. Car park surface could do with a some maintenance work"May 29, 2007
"Everything went very well, smooth fast and friendly."May 28, 2007
"I arrived at the Flying Scot car park and they had no record of my booking. They told me to go to the low cost car park instead but didn't let that car park know I was coming so I had to wait whilst all my information was re-entered on the system and was asked to pay again (I had to explain that I had prepaid).
On my return I was asked again if I had paid or not. I understood that booking in advance would make the process easier and less stressful.
The Flying Scot had come highly recommended so I was very disappointed to receive this service."
"Hassle free parking close to the airport. Service was excellent."May 27, 2007
"Just returned from Spain and for the first time ever at Edinburgh Airport the car parking courtesy bus did actually come when called for. Within 15 minutes of landing and collecting luggage we were en route to the nearby carpark. Hassle free. Will use on my next trip in September - will most definately recommend to friends."May 27, 2007
"Transit to and from the airport was prompt and the driver pleasant and helpful. The car was waiting for me on my arrival and the keys available within minutes we were on our way.
Certainly can reccomend them and will use them again"
"A very satisfactory experience with Flying Scot. Easy to find, very close to the airport, friendly and courteous staff. Good pick up arrangements including courtesy phone in arrivals. All round very satisfactory."May 26, 2007
"Arrangements all went according to plan. The only problem was that the approach road was rough and area in front of reception was rough and cramped. Otherwise everything OK."May 26, 2007
"Good service at a competitive price. Instructions for reaching the car park, as well as those from the driver regarding getting picked up, were crystal clear. Anybody who has experienced otherwise will appreciate how important this is. As I stay in the west I'm more inclined to use Glasgow and Prestwick airports, but should I fly from Edinburgh again I will definitely use Flying Scot."May 25, 2007
"Flying Scot offer an excellent service. I have used them numerous times and have always found the staff etc to be very helpful."May 25, 2007

"Excellent service. Would definitely use again and will reccommend to others. Thanks"May 23, 2007
"I was very disappointed with Flying Scot. Everything on departure was great the problems came on our return. My car was not ready for pickup. I had to find my keys myself on the board. They then had to move cars to get mine out and when I saw the way they drove the cars I'm afraid I won't be placing my trust in this company again. I think the man thought he was a boy racer doing wheelies and driving at speed. Not at all professional. So thumbs down for Flying Scot"May 23, 2007
"Generally no problem but perhaps the wait for the courtesy bus to leave did not tally with time calculations based on it being 1 minute from the terminal."May 23, 2007
"staff friendly. location good. bus seatbelts a bit tempramental."May 23, 2007
"Service was mostly good. Some staff in the office were not overly interested in proceedings but, it was cheaper to park there than use a taxi.Would use them again."May 23, 2007
"It was good experiance. I choose them mostly for the price and location reasons however I find them also very efficient and friendly."May 21, 2007
"Flying Scot service was excellent, will definitely use them again. Only minor problem was that I missed the entrance the first time round, probably my fault. Everyone was really friendly and helpful, unlike some of the others I've used in Edin and in other places. Thanks."May 21, 2007
