Car Rental Miami Airport

All rental cars at the Miami International Airport are located at the MIA Rental Car Center, which is separate from the airport’s three terminals. The Rental Car Center is located at 3900 NW 25th St., Miami, FL 33142. This is just north of the Dolphin Expressway on Route 953.

Rental Car Center Transportation

Shuttles run regularly between Miami’s airport and the Rental Car Center. The shuttles depart from their station just outside of MIA’s central terminal, and they arrive at the RCC just a few minutes later. Of course, they also take passengers returning rental cars from the RCC to the airport via the same root. To find the shuttle, simply follow the signs in the airport.

In addition to the shuttles that go to and from the airport, there are also Metrorail and Metrobus stations that integrate the RCC with Miami’s public transportation system.

Help When You Need It

Should you need any help or have any questions concerning your rental car, the company’s desks are staffed at the Rental Car Center. If you need to change your reservation, would like a different car or are running late, simply give the desk a call or stop by. There is a desk at the RCC, so that we can provide you with an excellent car rental experience.
