Fort Lauderdale 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!

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.

Find out which are the easiest to find and more in our list of the best rental companies in Fort Lauderdale.

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 form which direction you a traveling form.

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 of a rental car at Fort Lauderdale Airport?
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 rental car at Fort Lauderdale Airport?
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 take a rental car from Fort Lauderdale Airport to 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 at Fort Lauderdale Airport?
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.
Can I lave the state of Florida with the rental car (if I return to Fort Lauderdale Airport by the end of the rental period)?
You can rent a vehicle that can be taken outside of the state of Florida from many companies in Orlando. Be aware, though, that many of the companies with lower rates do not allow their cars to be taken out of the state, so be sure to check the rental conditions before booking.
Can I take a rental car from Fort Lauderdale Airport to Miami?
Yes, you can pick up a car in Orlando and return it in Miami. This is a very popular route for travelers. There is an additional fee for one-way rentals, though. Be sure to select your desired drop-off location when searching to see which cars are available and what the total costs would be.
