Spending the night at the airport

Edinburgh airport is open 24 hours a day, but be aware that the lights are bright and the place is noisy, so it's best to have a sleeping mask, headphones or earplugs. It is also important to be aware of your belongings and take security measures while sleeping at the airport.

Where to rest: In the Arrivals Hall, and especially next to the baggage claim area, there are some benches without armrests, as well as in some cafeterias. Another option is the car rental facility, which has comfortable seating. The VIP lounges are closed at night, but offer greater comfort. In addition, several hotels in the vicinity offer shuttle services.

Eating and drinking: The only options available during the evening are the Costa and Starbucks coffee shops.
