Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Int. Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is the busiest airport in the world. This is largely due to it being the largest hub of Delta Air Lines. There is a long-running joke that when you die, regardless of if you’re heading to heaven or hell, you’ll have to connect in Atlanta. 

The airport is well-equipped to handle the volume of passengers. Passengers whose final destination is Atlanta will find the airport easy to navigate and the way to the car rental desks simple to figure out. 

Top international routes

  • Amsterdam
  • Paris
  • Cancun
  • London
  • Toronto
  • Mexico City

Main airlines

ATL is the main hub for Delta Air Lines. Three-quarters of the airport's passengers fly with Delta. Southwest Airlines, a popular low-cost carrier, is the next largest airline by passengers at ATL. Spirit Airlines, Frontier Airlines, and American Airline are also major carriers that serve the airport.

Terminals

Hartsfield-Jackson has two terminals — the domestic terminal and the Maynard H. Jackson Jr. international terminal and seven concourses, A, B, C, D, E, F, and T, which are located between the terminals. The domestic terminal is itself divided into two parts, one for Delta Air Lines and the other for all other airlines. All concourses and terminals are connected by the Plane Train automated people mover system, and it’s also possible to walk between most of them.

Location

Atlanta Airport is about 7 miles (11 km) south of downtown Atlanta. Motorway I-85 is the main road connecting the airport to the city.

Car rental desks

There is a Rental Car Center where all on-airport companies are located. From the baggage claim area, the SkyTrain people mover system carries passengers to the parking lots and Rental Car Center. There is also an Internation Terminal Shuttle carrying passengers from the International Terminal to the Rental Car Center. It runs approximately every 15 minutes.

The Rental Car Center is open 24 hours a day all year long. Dollar, Thrifty, National, and Sixt are all open 24 hours a day. Europcar, Advantage, and Ace are not.

Finally, Routes Car Rental is located off-airport. To reach the company’s location, proceed to the Rental Car Center and call them for a shuttle. There is an area on the ground floor of the center for the Atlanta International Connector and off-airport rental agencies. Note that the company's rental desk closes at 11:30 PM.

Services and facilities

Atlanta Airport is the busiest passenger airport in the world and has plenty to offer. You’ll find many coffee shops, bars, fast food outlets, pizzerias, steakhouses, and restaurants of all kinds. There are countless shops, including duty-free outlets available for international passengers. You’ll also find on-site hotels, ATMs, currency exchange kiosks, baby changing facilities, a place for charging mobile devices, a medical center, a spa, interfaith chapels, and the airport art program, which hosts frequent exhibits and performances. Luggage lockers are located in the southwest area of the domestic terminal atrium. The airport is fully equipped for passengers with reduced mobility. You can find more information on the airport's official website.

Nearest gas station

If you are returning to the airport from downtown Atlanta, there are both Shell and Chevron stations located just off of Exit 73 of I-85 which is one exit before the one renters need to take to reach the rental car center when returning their car.

If coming from the south along I-75, you will need to exit onto I-285. As there are no gas stations where you will have to exit to reach the car rental center, it is best to take Exit 60 (Riverdale Rd.), continue along Riverdale Rd until reaching W Fayetteville Rd., and then turn left where there is a BP station. To reach the car rental center afterward, go back to Riverdale Rd. heading toward the airport and take Terminal Parkway before reaching I-85 (you can not reach the car rental center from Highway 29).

If renting from Routes from the north, other options are a Sunoco and an Exxon station on Highway 29 that require slight detours from the direct route from I-85 to the Routes location on Sullivan Rd. These may be preferable to the stations on Exit 73 since they are closer to the rental agency’s location.
