What to Consider When Booking a Rental Car From an Airport
Airport rentals tend to be in higher demand, so it’s a good idea to book in advance to avoid missing out, especially if you’ll be booking during a peak travel season.
It may be more expensive to rent a car from the airport as opposed to a suburban depot due to additional airport surcharges.
It’s a good idea to include your flight number when placing your booking. This will allow your rental provider to keep track of any delays to your flight and ensure someone is on-site to process your booking when you arrive.
You’ll need to locate the rental counter when you arrive at the airport. Generally, you can find these by the baggage claim in the arrivals area.
If returning the car to the airport prior to catching a departing flight, be sure to plan ahead and allow plenty of time to drop off the car and get to your terminal.
If you know you’ll be late in either collecting or returning your rental car, you should contact your rental provider to let them know.
