FAQs

Transportation: Numerous flight options are available to/from Edinburgh. Taxi and Uber service is plentiful between the airport and JMCC. Inexpensive light rail is available between the airport and downtown, but the nearest light rail stop (Princes Street) to the JMCC is a 35 minute walk.

Overnight: Hotels are relatively expensive in the area, so use the Edinburgh First link to stay in rooms adjacent to JMCC.

Refunds: Due to the fact that ICGI employs no administrative staff, no refunds will be provided.
