Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Fort Lauderdale Airport! Then drive to Fort Lauderdale Beach, also known as The Strip—enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, check out the seaside bars and cafés, and have some active fun sailing, fishing, jet skiing, parasailing, or scuba diving.

Drive your rental to Las Olas Boulevard—this is central Fort Lauderdale where many of the main attractions are located, from museums and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts to beautiful architecture and happening nightclubs. If you’re up for an adventure, check out the nearby swamp safari, and make sure to see the flamingos in one of the national parks.

Fort Lauderdale’s a great place to visit, but the surrounding region has even more to offer. Why not get a longer-term car rental? You can go to nearby Miami, visit the theme parks in Orlando, or drive all the way to Georgia and Alabama for a different kind of adventure. You can even pick up your car at Fort Lauderdale Airport and drop it off at another location. Start planning your vacation now!

Here are some ideas of places you could go from Ft. Lauderdale if you get tired of lounging around on the beach all day:

  • Miami: Just to the south of Ft. Lauderdale is the legendary nightlife and entertainment capital of the East Coast, Miami (and Miami Beach). Many use Ft. Lauderdale Airport as an alternative to flying into MIA due to it being served by more low-cost airlines. But even if your destination is the Ft. Lauderdale area, you shouldn’t miss driving down to Miami during your trip. 
  • The Florida Keys: Key Largo is only a three-hour drive south of Fort Lauderdale, though Key West is a couple of hours further down the road. You can enjoy some of the best scuba diving in the country or just snap a pic at the southernmost point of the United States. Either way, it’s definitely worth the trip. 
  • Everglades National Park: Though it’s a few hours’ drive to the south, the Everglades is an excellent place to spend time in nature. You can experience the unique landscape in many ways, whether it be just for a day of birdwatching or an extended kayaking trip. 
  • Orlando: Just three hours or so away from Ft. Lauderdale, the land of theme parks is easy to reach. Take the kids to Disney World or Universal Orlando for a fun day or two away from the beach. 

COVID-19 Update: As of February 2021, most restaurants and attractions are open and operating at a limited capacity to ensure social distancing. All airports in the US require face coverings to be worn, and this includes Ft. Lauderdale Airport. See the airport's advisories on COVID-19 for the latest information.

Terminals

There are four: Terminal 1(the New Terminal), Terminal 2(the Delta Terminal), Terminal 3 (the Main Terminal), and Terminal 4 or the International Terminal). There’s a free shuttle between all of them.

Location

Fort Lauderdale Airport is 3 miles (5 km) south of Fort Lauderdale and 21 miles (34 km) north of Miami. Highway US-1 connects the airport to downtown Fort Lauderdale while I-95 is the main road connecting the airport to Miami.

Most popular types of rental car

  • Convertibles - from $57 per day
  • Large cars - from $75 per day
  • Medium cars - from $67 per day
  • People Carriers/Vans - from $152 per day
  • Premium cars - from $97 per day
  • Small cars - from $63 per day
  • SUVs - from $110 per day

Car rental desks

Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport has a Rental Car Center in which Europcar, Thrifty, and Dollar are located. The Rental Car Center is connected to Terminal 1’s Concourse B by a pedestrian bridge. Passengers that arrive at other terminals should catch a free shuttle bus to the Rental Car Center. The location where the bus picks up renters is indicated well in every terminal.

All of the other rental companies have locations near the airport. Each of them provides a shuttle service. Those renting from these companies should proceed to the Rental Car Center to bus stop #7. There is a phone from which you can call your rental company there.

Services and facilities

You’ll find a range of bars, restaurants, and duty-free shops, ATMs, a business service center, and a lost-and-found office. There are four baggage storage services, located on the lower levels of Terminals 1 and 3 and on the upper levels of Terminals 2 and 4. Fort Lauderdale Airport offers special assistance to travelers with reduced mobility. You can find more information on the airport's official website.

Nearest gas station

What is the most convenient gas station at which to fill up prior to returning a rental car depends on both whether you are renting from a company located at the airport or not and from which direction you are traveling.

If traveling from the south and renting from a company located at the airport, you should exit I-95 one exit prior to the airport exit (that is, Exit 22 Stirling Road). At this exit, there is a Mobil station. As the best way to reach the airport from this station is to continue East along Stirling Road until reaching Highway 1 which goes to the airport, you can also stop at another Mobil station along that road. Note that the Chevron station closest to the airport has significantly higher prices and should be avoided.

If driving to the airport from downtown Fort Lauderdale, there are multiple gas stations located along Highway 1 prior to reaching the airport.

If driving along I-95 or I-595 from the north or west, multiple stations along Marina Mile Blvd/NW 24th Street are the most convenient. This is for those returning rental cars to both on-airport and off-airport locations as most off-airport locations are located off this road.

Finally, if returning a car to one of the off-airport locations and coming from the south, it is best to travel north of the airport and exit on Marina Mile Blvd. (Exit 25) as mentioned previously.

FAQ

Are there any restrictions on the number of drivers?
Yes, each contract can have a maximum of one main driver (under whose name the rental contract is) and three additional drivers, for each of which you will be charged an additional fee.
Can I use my credit card’s insurance to cover the car?
Yes, it is possible to use your credit card’s insurance. Credit card insurance usually acts as secondary coverage, so be sure to confirm that your credit card’s insurance will serve as primary coverage in the event that you have no other coverage. You may need to present proof of the coverage from your credit card company at the rental desk.
Can I drop off the car at Orlando Airport?
Yes, it is possible to drop off the car at a different location, including Orland Airport, though there will be an additional one-way fee. Not all rental companies offer this, though. Be sure to select your pick-up and drop-off locations when searching to see the available offers and total costs including the fee.
What is the cost of a Sunpass transponder?
The cost of a SunPass transponder depends on which company you rent a car from. Different options are available including renting the transponder and paying for the tolls you accrue or paying a flat fee that covers the transponder and unlimited tolls. You can contact our customer support to find out the exact cost for the rental company you have chosen.

Be aware that you have to take a shuttle to the Rental Car area, then walk to the shuttle for Economy all the way to the front of all the shuttles. If you have a lot of luggage, this could be a pain.
