Finding Flights from San Francisco to Edinburgh

San Francisco International Airport Information

The San Francisco International Airport (Highway 101 near the junction of Highway 380) is the primary commercial passenger airport serving San Francisco and the surrounding areas. The airport hosts most international and domestic airlines offering cheap flights from San Francisco. You can also use Orbitz.com to book an alternate flight out of Oakland International Airport (1 Oakland Drive, Oakland) or San Jose International Airport (2065 Airport Boulevard, San Jose).

Parking at San Francisco International Airport

San Francisco International's parking garages are a 10-minute walk or less from the gates, and there is free shuttle service from the long-term lots. Parking costs anywhere from $18 to $38 per day, depending on the option you choose. If you've used Orbitz.com to book your discount flights, you may have saved enough to justify spending the extra money to use the airport's valet parking service.

Ground Transportation Information

A taxi, limousine or shared-ride van to the airport will cost anywhere from $17 to $40. Factor in plenty of extra travel time for the 13-mile ride, as rush-hour traffic can be brutal. You can also use the public BART system or the SamTrans public bus service, both of which will cost you less than $10. Don't forget to use Orbitz.com before you leave to book a rental car in your destination city.

Restaurant Options at the Airport

The San Francisco airport has roughly 50 eateries where you can grab a coffee or have a light meal. Most of the restaurants and cafes are located within the terminals past the security checkpoint, but there are a few restaurants before you reach the security gates. Have a great flight to your final destination, and don't forget to use Orbitz.com the next time you're looking for cheap flights from San Francisco.

Airports in Edinburgh

Your trip to Scotland will be much easier when you search for cheap flights to Edinburgh on Orbitz.com.

There are currently plans to expand the airport to accommodate an expected rise in passenger volume.

Transportation From the Airport

When you book with Orbitz.com, you'll have the option to reserve a rental car for your stay. There are also daily and nightly bus routes that transport passengers from Edinburgh Airport into the city. The Airlink 100 runs every 10 minutes all day long and drops passengers off at Waverly Bridge. The trip takes around 25 minutes. City cabs are available outside the arrivals end of the terminal building.

Summers are cool, with highs in the mid-60s. Winters are cool but not cold. Average low winter temperatures in Edinburgh are near the freezing mark. Edinburgh is known as a windy city, with a prevailing southwesterly breeze coming down from the hills.
