Buffalo Niagara Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Buffalo Niagara International Airport is the major airport serving Buffalo, Niagra Falls, and the rest of western New York. It is also a popular place for Canadians to fly to to reach southern Ontario, as flights are often cheaper than to Toronto.

Many fly to the airport to reach Niagra Falls. The Canadian side is sometimes regarded as a better experience. If you plan to cross the border with your rental car, be sure to check with your supplier beforehand to make sure it's ok with them. Generally, you shouldn't have to pay more nor purchase extra insurance (though you may have to purchase roadside assistance).

A Citgo and a Sunoco station can be found on Dick Rd. just south of the airport. Though there are a couple of stations that seem closer to the airport, they are harder to reach when coming from the expressway.
