    Miami 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, 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!

    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.

    We had to leave car with keys in glove box on our return as it wasnt explained to us that your facility would be closed at the time we said we wolkd return the car..other than that the car was very good as was the member of staff who resolved our issues..Miami west westr palm beach are both areas that we would recommend visiting.Parking can be an issue and it is quite expensive when it can be found ($5.00 per hour or more.)But the sun shines plenty and people of florida are very accommodating.
