Miami International Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Miami Airport! Then drive into the city to explore. Miami’s famous for its beaches, but you’ll discover that there’s a lot more to see and do. Drive to the historic MiMo district in Downtown Miami which is known for its architecture, experience the unique atmosphere in Little Haiti, and be sure to check out Little Havana and Coconut Grove.

Park by the harbor and take a boat tour — it’s the ideal way to see many landmarks. The city’s cultural scene and nightlife are vibrant, so check out a festival while you’re there and enjoy live music at the bars and nightclubs. Drive to Everglades National Park, explore the swamplands, and go on a tour to see alligators and other local wildlife.

Miami’s a great place to visit, but there’s so much more to see in the area, so why not get a longer-term car rental? Drive down to Key West, explore the north of Florida, or go all the way to New Orleans and visit America’s Deep South in Alabama and Mississippi. You can pick up your car at Miami Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure now!

Though you could easily spend weeks enjoying Miami, here are a few ideas of places in South Florida that are worth taking a day trip to in order to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city: 

  • Big Cypress National Preserve: Head west along I-75 to this slice of nature. The park offers hiking trails, boat tours, and some of the darkest skies on the east coast making it the perfect spot to stare at the stars. You can also camp at one of the preserve’s campgrounds, a perfect way to spend the night outdoors. The preserve 
  • Everglades National Park: Though it’s a couple of 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. 
  • Biscayne National Park: South of Miami, this national park protects the Bay of Biscayne which includes the northernmost of the Keys. There are a few things you can do there like exploring the Visitor Center or walking along the Jetty Trail, but as the park is 95% water, a boat is needed to explore it. There are tours that you can join or you can rent a canoe or kayak and explore on your own. Either way, the park is a treasure that shouldn’t be overlooked. 

COVID-19 Update: As of February 2021, most restaurants and attractions are open and operating at a limited capacity to ensure social distancing. All require face coverings. The State of Florida doesn’t require any self-isolation or test when entering from another state. Only US citizens and permanent residents are allowed to arrive from many international destinations including the UK and EU, while others must quarantine and provide negative COVID-19 tests. See the CDC’s page concerning travel during COVID-19 for more information.

Top international routes

Main airlines

MIA is a major gateway from the United States to Latin America. American Airlines carries the most passengers at MIA, with the airport being a major hub for the airline. Delta, United, and Frontier are also major airlines at the airport and serve many domestic destinations. Aeromexico, LATAM, Avianca, and Aerolineas Argentinas serve many destinations in Latin America. Finally, Virgin Atlantic and British Airways connect the city to London.

Terminals

There are three terminals: North or Blue Terminal and its Concourse D; Central or Yellow Terminal that consists of Concourses E, F, and G; and South or Red Terminal that consists of Concourses H and J. All three terminals are connected by a moving walkway. It takes about 15 minutes to get from North Terminal to South Terminal.

Location

The airport is 8 miles (13 km) northwest of Downtown Miami and a similar distance west of Miami Beach. You can reach I-95, Downtown Miami, or Miami Beach either via State Road 112 or the Dolphin Expressway, but keep in mind that the latter is a toll road.

It’s a good idea to figure out your options for paying for tolls in your rental car in South Florida ahead of time. Some rental companies provide cars that have a SunPass transponder attached that can neither be removed nor turn off. Others provide one that can be taken off so that you can use your own if you have one.

Most popular types of rental car

  • Convertibles - from $126 per day
  • Large cars - from $78 per day
  • Medium cars - from $62 per day
  • People Carriers/Vans - from $640 per day
  • Premium cars - from $98 per day
  • Small cars - from $49 per day
  • SUVs - from $144 per day

Car rental desks

Those rental companies that are located at the airport can be found in the separate MIA Rental Car Center (RCC) building. Miami Airport and the RCC building are connected via an automated people mover system (MIA Mover).

Companies that are located outside of the airport each provide a shuttle service to their location. These shuttles can be found outside the lobby of the Rental Car Center.

Services and facilities

You’ll find countless shopping and dining opportunities, banks, and ATMs, lounges, a lost and found office, a spa, a yoga room, and a chapel. Luggage storage is located on level 2 of Central Terminal’s Concourse E and is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. You can find more information on the airport's official website.

Nearest gas station

There are some convenient gas stations for renters to fill up at prior to returning their rental cars, though one should be careful of price gouging. The two stations closest to the Rental Car Center (a Chevron and a Shell) both have prices significantly higher than other stations in the area. Just one or two blocks down the street, you will find Exxon and Texaco stations with much lower prices.

If renting a car from one of the companies located away from the airport, other stations may be more convenient. For example, most returning a rental car to Fox Easirent, or Clubs will find a Chevron station at the intersection of NW 27th Avenue and NW 17th Street may be better.

Those returning a rental car to Zig Zag may find a Chevron station at the intersection of NW 41 Street and NW 27th Avenue where they will most likely exit the Airport Expressway to be the best solution.

FAQ

How can I get toll device in Miami?
SunPass transponders are already installed in many rental cars. You will be charged on daily basis by the rental companies for these devices and this charge may or may not include unlimited tolls. You can opt-out of renting this device if you wish, but please note that in many cases this transponder is fixed to the windshield of the car and can not be turned off. Therefore, if you pass through any toll booths, even if paying in cash, you will be charged for the toll in addition to a hefty penalty by the rental company.
What insurances are included in the reservation?
Mandatory insurance is not included for residents of Canada and the USA. If you intend to use your own insurance, the company may request that you provide an insurance ID card with the exact coverage shown and the same name and address as listed on your driver's license.
Do I need additional insurance?
If the reservation package you have selected includes both a collision damage waiver and third-party liability, you do not have to purchase additional insurance; however, we recommend purchasing our Full Coverage to protect your deductible.
What is the additional charge if I exceed the specified mileage limit?
You can find this out easily by calling or sending an email to our Customer Support.

1. Better car to pieck up customers - image is quite important 2. Emaployees should be very nice dressed and identified with company logo - That give confidence 3. Cars should be clean and ready to deliver - in the way to the company tell customer that your car is ready to use 4. Outside the company office shoul be better organized, more boutiful, better level, more a nice office, less a warehouse

Very satisfied, great value for the money!!! I will again rent from OptimoRent or JC car rental. Highly recommended. When I booked for the first time, I was worried that how did I get a full-size SUV so cheap. The answer is that they give awesome deals, which we can't imagine. The car was in great condition, almost new. The agents are really nice and welcoming. One more experience is that my wife forgot her iPhone in the car. These people are so nice that they took their time off and returned (by mail) that iPhone to us. I am very thankful for all their survices.
