Therefore we can guarantee that every transaction made is 100% safe and we will reimburse the first 50 Pounds should your credit card be misused or abused due to budgetscot.com. The credit card company is obliged to pay the remainder.

Budget Directory Ltd is a booking agent for accommodation. Your contract for the accommodation that you wish to book  will be with the applicable accommodation provider and not with Budget Directory Ltd. In many cases, this will mean that there are additional terms and conditions governing the contract as each provider will have its own terms.

All queries, questions and issues with the rooms you book via BudgetScot should be directed to the accommodation provider with which you enter into a contract.

To make a booking you will be asked to submit personal information (\\\\\\\"Personal Informatio\\\\\\\") about yourself such as your name, email address, telephone number and credit card details. Whenever you provide such personal information, BudgetScot will collate and use such personal information in booking the room and save the detail in our secure system.  BudgetScot will confirm your booking and issue you with an email confirmation.

When you reserve accommodation using our Site, you are entering into a legally binding contract with the accommodation provider, and not budgetscot.com. We simply act as an agent who arranges the booking and are not a party to the booking contract. The contract will be subject to the accommodation provider’s policy and we will arrange for the terms to be provided to you on request.

This will include the balance of the reservation price which must be paid according to the accommodation provider’s own terms for payment. The accommodation provider has the legal right to request money in advance or at the check-in date. 

Most of the accommodation providers charge a fee for cancellations or changes to reservations.  Also some providers may not issue any refunds for cancelled or altered arrangements. Budgetscot.com has no control over such matters. You will normally be charged for at least your first night\\\\\\\'s stay if you cancel your reservation within 48 hours of the day on which you are due to arrive.

GENERAL TRAVEL

TRAVEL WITHIN SCOTLAND

 

  • TRAIN

We recommend \\\"The Train Line\\\" ( online via BOOK UK TRAINS ONLINE ) as fares can be as much as 60% cheaper if booked in advance, and during the peak season (May-September and Bank Holidays) finding cheap tickets is often impossible due to excessive demand, so even turning up at the Railway Station you may still find tickets for a particular service heavily restricted (or impossible) to secure at a reasonable price. Trains serve most of Scotland.

 

  • BUS/COACH


ONLINE BUS TICKETS from only 0.99p via National Express Coaches - an excellent cheaper alternative, however, often fully booked during summer so again advance booking is highly recommended. Combinations of Bus and Coach cover 99.9% of areas you are likely to wish to visit.

 

  • PLANE

Flying within the UK and Europe can be excellent value, in particular, RyanAir and EasyJet offer services to Scottish Airports. Prices rise dramatically during peak seasons and Bank Holidays as well as during certain (popular) times of the day. Late flights or very early morning tend to be up to 30-50% cheaper.

However, when factoring in Taxi or Coach/Bus costs to the Centre from the Airport prices can rise. All Bus Stations and Railway Stations are centrally located, usually in the heart of the city/Town Centre.

 

 

EDINBURGH

The most well connected City in Scotland, and outside of London and Manchester probably the UK.

ARRIVAL

Airport

Edinburgh International Airport is located at Turnhouse approximately 9 kilometres west of the city centre. A direct and frequent Shuttle bus (Number #100 every 30 minutes, journey time 30 minutes) leaves the airport for the centre between the hours of 5.00am and Midnight at a cost of UK 3 pounds single and 5 pounds for a return ticket. A taxi to the City Centre will cost you approximately UK 15-20 pounds and take approximately the same time.

Train

Trains into Edinburgh arrive at the Cities main Station known as Waverley Station which is situated at the eastern end of Princes street (Edinburgh\\\'s main street). This is right in the city centre.

 

Bus and Coach

The Bus and Coach terminus, located at St Andrews Square (5 minutes walk to Princes street) serves all local and intercity destinations



CITY TRANSPORT

The best way to explore Edinburgh is most definitely through the use of the excellent public transport system. A daily Ticket costs just UK 2.50 pounds and allows unlimited use of the “White and Maroon” Bus network. The network itself is extensive and covers not only the centre but almost certainly even the most out of the way places.


A Car isn\\\'t really recommended for exploring the centre, simply due to its compact nature a car is really not needed, the strict parking restrictions and the difficulties in parking (and associated high costs) really means we strongly advise where possible to use the Public Transport Network. Additionally, the main street, Princes Street, is closed to private vehicles during the hours of 7am to 8pm (allowing only Buses, Taxis and Cycles).

Taxis are not cheap and you will be paying a minimum of UK 5 pounds for a short journey. However they are plenteous and easily available.

 

GLASGOW

ARRIVAL

Airport

Most visitors will arrive at Glasgow International Airport, located ten kilometres southwest of the city at Abbotsinch. The Glasgow Airport Link bus takes you directly into the city centre (Buchanan Street) appriximately every 12 minutes, and taking less than half an hour. A Taxi will cost around UK 17 pounds.

Glasgow also another airport, Prestwick, located near Ayr 40 kilometres south of Glasgow, this also has a connecting bus service.

Train

Glasgow\\\'s Central Station. near Argylle street is the arrival point for all trains into the city. Trains to Edinburgh are fast and frequent, taking approximately 60 minutes.

Bus and Coach

Buchanan Street bus station servers all regional and intercity areas.

CITY TRANSPORT

The Underground or Subway is often called the “Clockwork Orange” and is open 6.30am-11pm Mon-Sat and 11am-5.30pm Sunday with a day ticket costing UKP 1.90 pounds.

Glasgow has a wide variety of Bus companies, with disparate destinations. It is best once arriving to pick up the various local timetables as the multitude of companies and routes even confuses the local population.

Taxis\\\'s are of course plentiful but not cheap. Expect to pay UKP 4-5 pounds for a short journey, and around UKP 9-10 for a three mile journey.
