When it comes to transportation to and from the airport, the options are plenty and quite varied! They range from public transportation buses to personal limousines. The visitor gets to choose whichever mode of transportation best fits their needs, their budget, and their convenience.
One of such options, however, consistently stands out as a fan favorite. It may not be the most budget-friendly option, but most people think it is worth the extra bucks. That option is renting a car. Renting your own car gives you a sense of freedom and flexibility along your trip that is not offered by any other mode of transportation. You can head to your many destinations at your own convenience every time.
This option is also becoming a more affordable one, with more and more companies introducing several affordable vehicles for customers to choose from.
SFO Car Rental Center
The car rental companies at San Francisco Airport are huddled together at the SFO Car Rental Center.
This center houses the companies and makes it easier for passengers to access all the companies in a convenient and easy manner. The location can be reached through the SFO Car Rental shuttle. The inter-terminal transportation options at the airport are many, and they transport you to every corner of the terminals. The Car Rental Center is just another stop, so you can easily hop on and hop off any shuttle service of your liking as you go to and from the SFO terminals and the SFO Car Rental Center.
