Car Rental Fort Lauderdale Airport

Fort Lauderdale is an extremely popular spring break and honeymoon destination. When you are planning a vacation there it helps to know what car rental options you have at the airport.

The car rental center at the airport gives you a dozen options at your fingertips. Each of the 12 car rental companies on site can be accessed in the same building, which is found next to Terminal 1. You can pick up and drop off your rental car at the airport.

If you are flying into Terminal 1 you will see airport signs directing you to the pedestrian bridge found at Concourse B, right near its checkpoint. If you are flying into any other terminal you can head to the designated area where passengers are picked up and taken to the site of their car rental company. This area is located right outside of the baggage claim level of the airport. You will travel there on a shuttle bus provided by the airport for free.

Once you arrive at the airport to leave Fort Lauderdale you will need to take your car to the Rental Car Center to drop it off. You will then be able to take the airport's free shuttle bus to each terminal. The shuttle bus runs 24/7 and a bus leaves every 10 minutes.

Renting a car at the Fort Lauderdale airport is always easy and convenient.
