Why It's a Deal In a recent Kayak search, we found a round-trip fare between New York City and Edinburgh for $708 in early November (KLM Royal Dutch). For the same dates, a seven-day rental car from Auto Europe starts at $66 per person, based on two drivers. For $275 more, this package covers the airfare and the rental car, plus six nights' accommodations, four breakfasts, and all taxes and fees.

More Upgrade to a car with an automatic transmission for an extra $79 per person, based on two drivers. Upgrade your first night in Edinburgh to Apex City Hotel for an additional $99 per person, based on double occupancy. Add a night in a B&B and an extra day of the rental car for an additional $99 per person, based on double occupancy. Many other hotel extensions and upgrades are available; rates vary by booking and travel dates. Add $30 to fly into Glasgow instead of Edinburgh and spend the first night at Glasgow's Holiday Inn Express.
