    Great experience with taking the airport bus! The bus stops were right as you exit the terminal and were very clear with destinations as you walk down the line. Ours was City Center which was bus stop A. The bus got to the stop within minutes and the bus driver took our printed vouchers and told us where to get off closest to our hotel address. The bus had a convenient luggage rack area inside. It was a half hour ride to our stop (the last stop). It was a great idea to get the vouchers in advance (don't forget to print them out), the bus would have taken cash or credit card but the vouchers were easier and convenient. We would highly recommend this site! We plan to do this again on our return!

    We booked in advance but could easily have paid on the spot. Bus stop A was easy to spot just outside the airport buildings. A couple of passengers had not printed out their tickets, as required, and were unable to use the digital ones on their phones. Driver was very helpful for us 1st timers in Edinburgh.

    I bought two tickets online, while being on vacation in Scotland and I just landed. And it turned out these tickets have to be printed out. I tried the only ticket machine on Edinburgh airport to print it out. I couldn’t because the reference number was too long to put into the machine. I started walking around and asking what can I do. I was advised to ask Ryanair (since I bought my plane tickets on Ryanair) to print out the bus tickets (this took in total 30minutes to walk around ask and find everything). Employee of Ryanair said only the manager has access to the printer and that he is not able to help me. It turned out I just paid for another tickets at the bus drivers.
