Top tips for renting a car at Columbia Regional airport

  • One of the best reasons to rent a car at Columbia Regional Airport (COU) is the convenience they offer travelers. Even though the airport provides numerous public transportation options to get you from the airport to other locations, they can be time-consuming and expensive. This is due to extra luggage fees, commuting from the arrival station to your site, and fare hikes during rush hour. In addition, they have a lot of stops along the way and wait times which can be time-consuming. Car rentals at Columbia regional airport provide door-to-door transportation and are reliable despite the weather or day of the week.
  • Picking up your car rental at Columbia Regional Airport is swift and more straightforward due to all the car rental agencies located onsite. The airport features about eight car rental agencies onsite, including Alamo, Hertz, SIXT, Avis, Enterprise, National, Budget, Easirent, and Sunnycars. Please proceed to the baggage claim area and Security check-in to get to them. You will find the rental counters there, within a ten-minute walk. The vehicles lie within a short walk from the counters in the parking area.
  • When you are ready to return your car rental at Columbia Regional Airport, you can bring your vehicle back to the exact location where you picked it up the car. When making reservations, you can get the option to drop the vehicle at a different location. However, you would have to pay extra fees. Most car rental agencies offer 24-hour services. Those that do not work on a 24-hour basis offer after-hour return services. When returning the car rental, ensure your gas tank is full, and the car has no damages. Once you get to the parking lot, lock the car, and submit the contract with keys at the rental counter. If using after-hour services, leave them at the drop box of your rental company.
  • Even though Columbia Regional Airport is not large, passenger traffic is not unusual. West at the rental companies can get hectic, especially on Sundays and Fridays. Therefore, consider reserving car rentals at Columbia Airport online via KAYAK. If you select the pick-up time to be at 45 minutes after your scheduled arrival time, you can be on your way as soon as you arrive.
  • Book your rental car at Columbia Regional airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

I was dismayed to find out that I had to have my car back at noon, when my flight didn't leave till 7PM. Your staff helped me find out the latest time I could return the car without extra charge, since I had picked it up at 3:30PM. I do not find this policy helpful, and was very surprised about it

I would have appreciated a full tank of gas when picking up. A minor thing but had to stop sooner when driving to destination. Attendant was okay with me bringing it back 3/4 full like I picked it up so no big deal

needed to take the car 3 hours from original return location with same date and time return. Was told it would cost 1400.00 more than original cost. The reason for different return was our flight was cancelled and I needed to flight out of a different airport. This price was unreasonable
