Austin-Bergstrom International Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) is the third-busiest airport in the state of Texas. The airport serves the Capital city of Texas, Austin. 

Austin is at the same time the seat of the state government, a large university city, and a hub for tech startups. It is also visited by many tourists. The city is well known for its food and music scenes, being known as the “Live Music Capital of the World.” 

The city is also popular due to the South by Southwest (SXSW) Film and Music festivals which take place every year during March. The film festival hosts many screenings and is significant even in the film industry. The music festival hosts hundreds of bands in venues across the city. In addition to critics and industry members, the festival is popular with diehard music fans. Expect high prices if visiting the city in March including hotel and rental car rates. 

With AUS’ great connections and Austin’s central location, the airport serves as a great point from which to begin an epic road trip through Texas. Dallas is located two hours to the north and San Antonia two hours to the west. Hill Country begins just outside of Austin. It’s even possible to make it all the way to Big Bend Country from the city in a reasonable amount of time (though, not as a day trip, for sure). 

There are many cheap flights from New York to Austin making it great for a weekend getaway.

Main airlines

Southwest, American, United, Delta, and Frontier are the major airlines at the airport. Find cheap flights from New York

Terminals

The airport has two terminals, the main, or Barbara Jordan, Terminal and the South Terminal. The main terminal hosts the flights of the traditional carriers. It also features three different flyer lounges. The Rental Car Center is most convenient to the main terminal, too.

The South Terminal hosts flights from low-cost carriers such as Allegiant Air and Frontier Airlines. It is located on the southern end of the airport and even has a separate entrance, though rental car customers will still need to use the same entrance as the main terminal.

Location

AUS is located approximately 7 miles southeast of Downton Austin near the interchange of US 183 and Texas 71. From Downtown, the airport can be reached either via I-35 and Texas 71 or via E 7th street and Highway 183. Either way, the trip should take between 15 and 45 minutes depending on traffic.

Most popular types of rental car

  • Large cars - from $115 per day
  • Medium cars - from $108 per day
  • Vans - from $130 per day
  • Premium cars - from $116 per day
  • Small cars - from $106 per day
  • SUVs - from $118 per day

Car rental desks

All major suppliers have desks in the Rental Car Facility which is located across from the upper level of the Barbara-Jordan Terminal. Those arriving in the South Terminal with Allegiant, Via Air, or Frontier will need to take a shuttle to the main terminal to reach the Rental Car Facility.

Services and facilities

AUS has all of the facilities and services that an airport of its size usually has. Unique to the airport is the fact that most of the restaurants in it are local businesses as opposed to national chains. The airport also hosts live music (continuing the Live Music Capital theme) every day of the week. Check the monthly schedule to see the artist, stages, and times.

The only hotels at the airport itself are Hilton and Hyatt Place. Quality Inn & Suites has a location just north of the airport and many other chains have locations near the Texas 71 US 183 interchange. Almost all of the hotels offer free shuttle service to and from the airport.

Nearest gas station

The closest gas station to the airport is a Texaco station that is actually at the airport which will be passed on Spirit of Texas Dr. on the way to the Car Rental Center. The prices are significantly hirer than nearby stations, though.

Another Shell station is located at 2453 Bastrop Hwy just on the other side of Highway 71 from the airport. Though requiring a small circle, prices are competitive. If seeking anything other than a fill-up, though, you should stick with the higher-priced, but new and clean, Texaco station at the airport.
