Hello Good Folks-
Flying into Edinburgh in late January with my two adult boys. We will spend 4-5 days in Edinburgh using public transportation, then renting a car (my first time renting a car not in the U.S.) to drive down the East coast of England. I have a couple of questions:
- Is it a problem/more expensive to rent a car in Scotland and return it in England? I would return the car at Gatwick airport.
If it is NOT problematic and/or more expensive to rent in Scotland and return in England, where would be a convenient location to pick up the vehicle where I can get there on train/bus, and yet avoid driving in the city.
If it IS a problem and/or more expensive to rent in Scotland and return in England, what would be a good location on the English side in which we could access the car after leaving Edinburgh by train?
Another forum member offered an option I liked and would appreciate feedback on as an alternative to the above: Rent a care in Edinburgh for a couple days to visit Hadrian's wall and what not, then return it and take a train to London and then a train to Salsbury and rent a care there.
