How do I get from the Edinburgh Airport to the train station?

How do I get from the airport in Edinburgh to the train station? Once there, do I just hop on the next train or do I have to get tickets confirmed or have reservations?

    Hi MaryEllen,

    To get from the Edinburgh Airport to the rail station, you would take an 'Airlink' bus. The buses go to the Haymarket rail station and the Waverley Bridge bus station. Conveniently, Waverley Bridge is adjacent to the Waverley station, which is considered the main rail station in Edinburgh.

    The buses depart every 10 minutes throughout the day and the ride takes about 25 minutes. You would pay to board locally upon arrival.

    As for train tickets, it is recommended that they be purchased in advance, prior to departing for Europe. You would purchase tickets by doing a search for a route under 'Find Train Tickets' on our homepage, Generally, trains in the UK can be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure.
