If you are stuck in Edinburgh during your stay, please do call – we are here to help.

You don’t need to worry about scammers

Larger accommodation companies are frequently targeted by scammers whereas our local, trusted team of experts verify each property host and the properties themselves – being based in Edinburgh means we know the areas, the types of properties and facilities available, making it very hard to create fake listings.  We speak to our property hosts as well as communicating via e-mail meaning that we build a healthy relationship with all of our customers – guests and hosts alike.

No need to worry about the typical scams you find elsewhere, which include the following:

  • Advance Fee Scam
  • Phishing Scam
  • Travel Scam
  • Overpayment Scam
  • Third-party booking scam

No nasty surprises

The prices quoted by edlets.com are fully inclusive – no additional service fees, cleaning fees or bills to add on after.

Please note that you may be asked to pay a refundable security deposit, however this will be returned after your stay – assuming no damages occur.

Other unpleasant surprises can include booking in an unsuitable location or booking an apartment without the required facilities, which our team would be delighted to assist you with to ensure a perfect stay.

If something unforeseen should happen during your stay, we’re on-hand to assist with any issues – please do give us a call!
