Car rental Miami airport

Miami International Airport (MIA) is the primary airport serving the South Florida Area. Miami airport is one largest airline hubs in the USA and the main gateway between the USA and Latin America. The airport is named a mall by its visitors as it offers a large amount of restaurants, bars and shops. Recently the Miami Airport Rental Car Center (RCC) was openend. This makes it very easy for you to pick up and return your rental car.

Rent a car at Miami Airport

Miami airport is a hub for American Airlines and includes most intercontinental passenger airlines like Air Berlin, Lufthansa, Air France, Aeroflot Air Canada and KLM. Both the economic growth of the region and many tourist attractions helped the airport to grow. In 2013 over 40 million passengers traveled through Miami airport making it the 26th busiest airport worldwide. The airport is located in metropolitan Miami and only 13 kilometers (8 miles) away from Downtown Miami. This is for your convenience since Miami itself is a popular holiday destination or starting point for a road trip by rental car.

Electric-powered train

The MIA Mover is the quick and free electric-powered train that transports you from the airport to the Miami Intermodal Center. The Rental Car Center is located here housing many car rental companies and their service desks. Are you picking up your rental car somewhere else in Miami? Here's also the Miami Central station offering all kinds options for ground transportation.

Miami International Airport Rental Car Center

The Miami Airport Rental Car Center is a modern architectural wonder. The Rental Car Center boasts 4 floors of car rental companies. Combined they have 6.500 cars for you to choose from. But even with a choice this large, never show up at a companies counter without a rental car reservation. You will save a good amount of money by comparing the car rental companies at Miami airport first and making the reservation in advance.



5 tips for the RCC:

As we all know: Cars are the top means of transport in the United States of America and this is no different in Miami. The Rental Car Center is an example of how nice renting a car can be. To help you get around at the RCC we listed 5 tips:

Returning your rental car to the Rental Car Center

The return entrance is located 3900 NW 25th Street - Miami, Fl 33142. Returning a car should be very easy and none of our customers had problems returning the rental car. Still we read stories online about several visitors having troubles with this.

The best two tips that we can give you are to allow yourself an hour to return the car and look out for the signage to your car rental company. These tips may seem redundant but it will help you during busy times, which the RCC definitely can be. After returning the rental car use the elevators or escalators to get to the 4th floor. The MIA Mover will take you back to the airport from here.

Alternative to Miami International Airport

There are some travelers preferring Fort Lauderdale – Hollywood International airport over Miami Airport. The airport is certainly smaller than Miami Airport but it's still nothing to laugh at. Fort Lauderdale Airport also offers intercontinental flights and processes around 25 million passengers a year.
The size of Miami Airport is huge and it while it offers great amount of services and flight routes. Some prefer a smaller Airport. With a distance of only 35 kilometers (21 miles) away from Miami Fort Lauderdale Airport is a great alternative.

Facilities

Serving the southern part of the economically growing Sunshine State and being the gateway to the USA for Latin America this Airport has it all. The services and facilities offered are widespread:

Rent from Green Motion, if you want a good car at a good price. I rented two cars, both fairly new minivans, both in good shape. Everything went smoothly, once I found my way to the GM office. You do need to be aware that, to head to the office, you first need to take the MIAMover to the rental car center. Then head outside to the curb and look for a shuttle to the office. I did not wait long, and the shuttle is just a few minutes to the office. Another tip: rent your car as long as possible at the daily price and then bring it in early, if you wish. I did it the other way, bring it in late (after a one-hour grace period) and paying a $40 late fee.

The first thing you should remember about Miami (except the fact, that it REQUIRES a cool car like Mustang))) - is that it's quite difficult and expensive to park there. Better use special parkings instead of parking along the streets: it seems to be cheaper and safer. If you have a convertible - don't miss Winwood district: you'll get incredible photos there :) Actually you'll get them even without a convertible ))) If you go to Key West - don't trust navigator: the trip is likely to take 6-7 hours, not 3-4. But it is absolutely worth! If you want to get somewhere (out of Miami - to the north) fast, use highway 95, if you want it beautiful - use road 1. Gas stations are real small universes: variety of coffee, some food, ATMs, restrooms, pillows, wifi - whatever you may need. Same for "rest areas" at highways. If you go to Kennedy Space Centre - be sure to have at least 5-6 hour before it closes. If you go to Universal (near Orlando) - be sure to have the whole day. And fast track is really worth its cost - even on the weekdays. Don't feel nervous about escaping after the parks are closed: the crowd of people doesn't turn into the crowd of cars - the traffic is organised really well. If you are a skydiver - just enjoy Florida, as we did!!!

The cuisine is great at restaurants such as Olive Garden, Golden Coral, food courts at the Saw Grass Mall and Westfield Malls. However, it would not hurt to occasionally patronize some of the fast food restaurants such as Burger King, Domino's, KFC to experience a different flavor. Shopping is great at the malls including Saw Grass, but some of the Department stores, including BrandsMart, Target, Walmart, Bed Bath and Beyond have some good value for money on te many interesting products they offer for sale.

Share with other people that the driving in the state of Florida from the locals was absolutely crazy. Seen things from passing on double lines on a curve to plain just flying down the interstate at high rates of speed. Drivers just turn around anywhere they feel free to do so. As a prospective car rental person please drive with caution.
