Sacramento International airport is one of the busiest airports in Sacramento County, California. Located about 10 miles to the northwest of downtown Sacramento, the airport gets most of its airline passengers from Southwest Airlines. So, if you’re boarding South West Airlines, chances are high that you will be landing at Sacramento’s largest airport.
Sacramento is classy indeed, complete with a resting area so you don’t have to circle endlessly as you wait to board your flight or to be picked by a friend. There are plenty of parking spaces for travelers and shopping, dining, and other services are accomplished with great convenience.
As soon as you touch down at the airport, you’ll need some form of transportation. There are plenty of options. For example, you can catch a public bus connecting to Davis, Woodland, and beyond. There are also several taxi operators working onsite waiting to take you anywhere. Then there are shuttles, vans, and sedans always waiting on standby. Car rentals, however, remain your best option especially if you’re not a large group of travelers.
All rental car companies at the airport operate from either of two rental car terminal; Terminal A and Terminal B. Sacramento has an on-airport shuttle that serves these terminals. It transports travelers to the stopping terminals arriving after every ten minutes. F course, you can expect longer wait hours during peak hours that is 4 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. to midnight.
The on-airport shuttle serves all rental car agencies working on-airport.
There are a total of seven rental car agencies that work on-airport. These are Advantage, Alamo, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz, and National.
It is also worth mentioning that four of the seven on-airport rental car providers offer services for people with disability. These are Avis, Budget, Hertz, and National. You will be required to make a reservation for such kind of transportation at least 48 hours to 72 hours in advance.
These are several off-airport rental car agencies, four of which are allowed by the airport management to pick travelers from any of the two rental car terminals. The four are Advance Rent a Car, Dollar Rent a Car, Payless Car Rental, and Thrifty.
Remember to arrange with your preferred agency in advance to avoid last minute complications.
