Jacksonville Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) serves the Jacksonville, Florida, the largest city in the state. Jacksonville is located near the Atlantic Coast in the very northern part of the state. It is widely thought of as a blue-collar city and a city to pass by on the way to South Florida. But those that don’t overlook the city have a lot to enjoy without a lot of other tourists to get in the way. 

Of course, as in most of the United States, public transportation in and around Jacksonville is not the best. A rental car is almost essential to get around, and here are some places you could go with one:

St. Augustine: Not far from Jacksonville is the city that claims to be the oldest in the US. A popular stopover on the way to Orlando or Miami, it should actually be considered a destination all of its own. Colonial buildings, the Fort Matanzas, and typical tourist traps are a great reason to visit, but the festivals that take place year-round are an even better one. Whether you head there for a weekend or just take a day-trip from Jacksonville, St. Augustine shouldn’t be missed. 

Beaches: Many don’t typically thin of beaches when they think of Jacksonville, but it has many great beaches near it, most of which are much less crowded than the beaches further south. Jacksonville Beach is the obvious starting point, but you can find other beaches both to the north and south of it and then you can drive around or take the short ferry to Fort George Island.

Cumberland Island National Seashore: Just over the state line In Georgie is a stunning part of the National Park Service that is perfect for a day or more in nature. Ride around the island, take a tour of the historic sites, or just relax on the unspoiled beach. You have to take a ferry (without your car) from St. Marys to reach it.

Main airlines

Delta Air Lines serves the most passengers at JAX. Its primary route is to and from Atlanta, with most passengers continuing to other destinations as ATL is the airline’s main hub. The low-cost airline Southwest is the second most popular airline at JAX serving destinations such as Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, and Nashville. United and American along with the low-cost airlines Frontier, JetBlue, Allegiant, and Spirit also carry many passengers at the airport with destinations primarily in the eastern and midwestern parts of the country.

Terminals

There is one terminal at JAX with two concourses with 10 gates each. United, JetBlue, Frontier, and Delta are located in Concourse A while Allegiant, American, some Frontier flights, Southwest, and Spirit are located in Concourse C. The concourses are connected and share the same security checkpoint.

Location

JAX is located roughly 15 miles north of downtown Jacksonville. The airport lies just outside the loop around the city created by I-295. The airport is also less than 25 miles from the Atlantic Coast region of Georgia. St. Augustine, the closest major tourist attraction outside of the city, is about an hours’ drive from the airport.

Most popular types of rental car

  • Convertibles - from $127 per day
  • Large cars - from $86 per day
  • Medium cars - from $73 per day
  • Vans - from $115 per day
  • Premium cars - from $118 per day
  • Small cars - from $71 per day
  • SUVs - from $93 per day

Car rental desks

Dollar, Thrifty, National, and Alamo all have desks in the airport’s terminal. They can be found on the lower level next to the baggage claim area. When returning a car, follow the Rental Car Return signs to the ground floor of the parking garage.

Ace, Europcar, and Easirent all have off-airport locations along Airport Road. Each provides its customers with a shuttle to reach its location.

Nearest gas station

There is a cluster of gas stations on Airport Road just after exiting from I-95 (Exit 373B, if coming from the south or Exit 363 from the north). There are Marathon, BP, Exxon, and Sunoco stations. The prices at the stations are general around 10 cents per gallon higher than other stations in the area, a cost that most will be fine with given the convenience of the stations.

If coming from the west on I-295, it’s best if you skip the airport exit and continue to I-95 North and then you can exit and stop at one of the gas stations mentioned previously.

FAQ

Can I travel to Georiga with a car rented in Jacksonville?
Yes, all rental companies located at Jacksonville Airport with the exception of Easirent allow renters to travel to Georgia.
How many miles will I be allowed to travel with the car?
All renters that fly into Jacksonville airport and have a return ticket will be able to travel as many miles as they would like. Local renters, often meant as those that aren't flying into the city or don't have a return ticket, will only be able to travel a certain number of miles per day, often 100 per day.
Is it possible to return the car in Orlando or Miami?
Yes, most companies serving Jacksonville Airport allow one-way rentals between the city and Orlando, Miami, and other cities. There is always an additional fee for this. Make sure to search using your intended drop-off location to see which cars are available and what the total cost including the one-way fee would be.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Jacksonville?
You must be at least 21 years old to rent a car in Florida. All rental companies in Jacksonville charge a fee for those under 25.
Are there any toll roads in Jacksonville?
The First Coast Expressway is a toll road. There are also Express Lanes on I-295 that require payment during certain times of the day.
How do I pay for the tolls?
Neither the First Coast Expressway nor the Express Lanes can be paid for in cash. You must either have a SunPasss transponder or have the fees billed to the rental company which will then pass them on to you with a service fee. Neither the toll road nor the Express Lanes are necessary for the average traveler, so the easiest solution may be to just not use them.
