Rental car pick up at Miami International Airport

For your convenience, ground operations are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so there are no restrictions on when you can pick up and return a rental car at Miami International Airport.

Miami International Airport is a major hub which offers flights to over 150 destinations. The airport terminal has four levels and wraps around the main parking area in a U shape. There are eight Concourse (A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H) extending outward from the other side of the terminal. Due to the shear size and amount of traffic going through MIA, it is best to have a plan for getting to your destination efficiently.

All of the national brand car rental agencies are represented at Miami International Airport. Finding the rental counters is simple as they are located on the ground level in the baggage claim area. This is where you go to check in and start your rental agreement.

While the rental counters are all in-terminal, the actual pick up lots for all car rentals are off-site and require a short courtesy shuttle bus ride to reach them. The shuttle buses are scheduled to run by baggage claim every 5 minutes. To catch a shuttle bus, you simply go outside of baggage claim to the median and hail down the first shuttle you see representing the rental agency you have reservations with. Once you have reached the pick up lot, you can finalize your agreement (if needed) and pick up your vehicle. Airport security is available to assist with directions if needed.

Rental cars are returned to the “airport triangle” area which is located prior to the passenger drop off area. The airport triangle is very busy and congested with one wrong term costing you a lot of time and frustration. Have the counter agent give you detailed return directions at time of pick up to avoid any issues.
