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.

Services and facilities
Nearest gas station
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.
