Everything You Need to Know About Renting a Car at the Airport

Airport rentals in Canada

Renting a vehicle from an on-airport car provider is as simple as flying to your destination and picking up your car in the same location. By doing this, you don't need to queue for a taxi or wait for a shuttle bus, it's as easy as finding the car rental location and starting your trip! VroomVroomVroom has put together a guide about everything you need to know about renting a car at the Airport.

What do I need to know before booking at an airport?

When you choose to book your car rental at an airport, there are a few things to keep in mind, especially in peak travel times. Booking early means that there is a larger range of car rental options available to you. Peak times include Christmas, Easter and holiday periods. A great way to be organised is to book your car hire straight after you have purchased your airfares so you are organised for your holiday.

Why does the car rental company ask for my flight information?

When you book your car rental, it is recommended to input your flight information. The car rental company asks for this information so the rental agencies are aware of your predicted arrival time. They are also able to see if your flight has been delayed so they will know whether to hold a car for you when you land.

What if my flight is delayed?

We understand that these things can happen at anytime. If the flight number has been provided when you booked your car hire, the car rental company will be able to see any delays. Our car rental partners will ensure a staff member is available for a confirmed reservation if the new arrival time is still within their business hours.

If the flight number has been changed, It is essential to notify your chosen rental company as soon as possible.
