If you are flying to Miami and will need a rental car, you can easily rent a car at Miami International Airport. There are 16 rental car companies represented at MIA. All are housed in the MIA Rental Car Center (RCC), located just 1 mile away from the airport.

Getting to the Rental Car Center (RCC)

A shuttle bus service transports travelers from the MIA arrivals level to the RCC lobby, where they then locate a particular rental car company. Once you get your baggage, just step outside the terminal (follow the "Ground Transportation" signs) and wait for the white bus marked "Rental Car Shuttle." You can visit the RCC Web Page for more info and a map of pick-up locations. If you are unsure of where to catch the shuttle, ask a transportation attendant.

Returning a Rental Car

When returning your rental car, go to the MIA Rental Car Center (RCC) at 3900 N.W. 25th Street. Make sure that you have proper directions to this center before you go! It only opened in July 2010, so old maps and GPS navigation systems may have the old address for your rental car company. Once you reach the center, there are clear signs to point you to the right section for your rental car company. You can visit the RCC Web Page for more info and directions.
