Coronavirus Update

Here is the latest information concerning COVID-19 and renting a car on DiscoverCars.com.

We are working around the clock to keep up with the constantly-changing situation throughout the world so we can provide you with up-to-date information regarding travel restrictions, rental branch opening hours, shuttle services, safety measures, and more. Our Customer Support team is ready to assist you any time, night or day.

If seeking general travel advice, we strongly recommend consulting the guidance of your government and the World Health Organization.

Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.

If you do travel, we want you to be as safe as possible while doing so. Thus, we have added information in our search results letting you know which rental companies are disinfecting their vehicles to prevent the spread of the virus.

Badge

A badge is shown next to all cars that we have confirmed are disinfected between each and every renter.

Search filter

Use the filter on the left-hand side of the search results to only see vehicles that are confirmed to be thoroughly disinfected.

We understand your need for flexibility.

We’d like to tell you that we’ve become more flexible, but the truth is that we were always flexible. If you need to change the dates of your rental or you decide to travel somewhere else, you can modify your booking in the My Booking section without charge (although the rental price may change).

Guadalajara Int. Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Guadalajara Airport is also known as Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla Guadalajara International Airport, Aeropuerto Internacional de Guadalajara, and Aeropuerto Internacional de Guadalajara Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla.

The airport serves Mexico’s second-largest city, though it is only the third-busiest airport in the country after that of Mexico City and Cancun. 

Top international routes

  • Los Angeles
  • Chicago
  • San Jose
  • Houston
  • Sacramento
  • Fresno

Main airlines

Volaris, VivaAerobus, Aeromexico, Aeromar, Interjet, and TAR Aerolineas

Terminals

The single passenger terminal serves all domestic and international flights. The terminal is divided into Concourses A and C, and you can easily walk between them.

Location

Guadalajara Airport is about 16km (10 miles) from downtown Guadalajara. Highways 44 and 23 are the main roads connecting the airport to the city. It takes around half an hour to make the trip to Guadalajara.

Most popular types of rental car

  • Large cars - from $32 per day
  • Medium cars - from $27 per day
  • People Carriers/Vans - from $69 per day
  • Premium cars - from $46 per day
  • Small cars - from $26 per day
  • SUVs - from $50 per day

Car rental desks

Most car rental companies located at the airport have shuttles that take their customers to their locations. Most are located along the same road very close to the terminal. National requires just a short walk outside of the terminal to their rental desk. Finally, America Car Rental provides a meet and greet service as it is located a few kilometers from the airport.

Services and facilities

You’ll find a number of stores, including a duty-free shop in the departures area, as well as cafés, restaurants, and snack bars. There are also several ATMs, two currency exchanges, a couple of hotels that are right next to the airport, a baggage wrapping service, and a pharmacy. Guadalajara Airport is well equipped for travelers with reduced mobility. You can find more information on the airport's official website.

Nearest gas station

A Pemex gas station is located right next to Guadalajara Airport. It, however, might not be the most convenient when returning a rental car as you must exit heading away from the airport and there is no place to turn around before entering the Chapala-Guadalajara highway.

Another Pemex location located at Carretera Solidaridad 1853 is directly on the way from the city to the airport about 3km from the rental car returns.

If returning a car to American Car Rental, a Pemex station is located right beside it.
