Coronavirus Update

Here is the latest information concerning COVID-19 and renting a car on DiscoverCars.com.

We are working around the clock to keep up with the constantly-changing situation throughout the world so we can provide you with up-to-date information regarding travel restrictions, rental branch opening hours, shuttle services, safety measures, and more. Our Customer Support team is ready to assist you any time, night or day.

If seeking general travel advice, we strongly recommend consulting the guidance of your government and the World Health Organization.

Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.

If you do travel, we want you to be as safe as possible while doing so. Thus, we have added information in our search results letting you know which rental companies are disinfecting their vehicles to prevent the spread of the virus.

Badge

A badge is shown next to all cars that we have confirmed are disinfected between each and every renter.

Search filter

Use the filter on the left-hand side of the search results to only see vehicles that are confirmed to be thoroughly disinfected.

We understand your need for flexibility.

We’d like to tell you that we’ve become more flexible, but the truth is that we were always flexible. If you need to change the dates of your rental or you decide to travel somewhere else, you can modify your booking in the My Booking section without charge (although the rental price may change). Our flexible cancellation policy also remains exactly the same.

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.

FAQ

How can I get a SunPass transponder?
SunPass transponders are already installed in many rental cars. You will be charged on per day 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.

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.
