Car Rental San Antonio Airport

So you're planning a trip to San Antonio? Welcome to the beautiful Lone Star State! San Antonio is a large, historic city with a population of approximately 1,256,509 people. This places San Antonio at #7 of the top 10 largest US cities. There are plenty of interesting places to visit if you have the time.


To get around a city this size, you want a rental car that is:

  • roomy enough to be comfortable
  • has good gas mileage
  • is easy to drive.
  • has the features you need


If you are not familiar with driving in San Antonio, inquire if any of the vehicles come GPS equipped. This feature will make navigating through traffic much easier.


Many rental car companies offer special discounts for certain groups such as senior citizen and military. Special offers may also be available for certain dates, destinations, and organizations. Be sure to ask when reserving your car and provide the promo code.


Fortunately, there are many rental car facilities located just outside the San Antonio International Airport. For your convenience, car rental customer service counters are located in the airport in Terminal A to reserve a car or ask for additional information.
