Birmingham International Airport

Airport Car Rental

Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport should not be confused with Birmingham Airport in the United Kingdom. Instead, it serves the largest city in the state of Alabama. 

Main airlines

American Airlines serves its hub of Dallas-Forth Worth from the airport, Delta its hub in Atlanta, United its hub in Houston, and Southwest- various cities.

Terminals

The airport only has one terminal, though there are three different concourses. Delta uses concourse A, American concourse B, and Southwest and United concourse C. Of course, it's a short walk between them all.

Location

BHM is located roughly 5 miles northeast of downtown Birmingham via I-20/I-59. Talladega Supermotor Speedway is about 40 miles to the east via I-20.

Most popular types of rental car

  • Convertibles - from $87 per day
  • Large cars - from $72 per day
  • Medium cars - from $74 per day
  • Vans - from $103 per day
  • Premium cars - from $77 per day
  • Small cars - from $77 per day
  • SUVs - from $77 per day

Car rental desks

All of the rental desks are located in the Rental Car facility in the parking garage. You can pick up and drop off your car in the parking deck with no need for a shuttle or long walk.

Services and facilities

BHM has all the services and facilities one would expect of a medium-sized American airport. There are newsstands, a food court, two Starbucks shops, and two restaurants/bars.

Nearest gas station

There are multiple gas stations at both exits off of I-20 used for reaching the airport. So whether approaching the airport from the east or the west, you'll be able to easily fill up right before returning your car.
