Top tips for renting a car at St. Louis Lambert Airport

  • One of the advantages of car rental at Lambert-St Louis Airport (STL) is that all the rental car companies have a location adjacent to the southern end of the airport property, which makes them convenient for those travelers arriving at the airport. From there, you will have easy access to Interstate 70 and will quickly be connected to the entire freeway and highway system in the city, making the trip to your destination quick and convenient.
  • The real advantage of car rental at Lambert-St Louis Airport, as opposed to other forms of transportation, is a combination of both speed and cost-effectiveness. There are public transportation options available to take you downtown from the airport, but these can take more than 30min, plus travelers will need to figure out what to do if they have a lot of luggage to take with them. While taking a taxi is also an option, fares to take you to downtown St. Louis can be an excess of around $35. So, when you combine the speed of travel and the rather cost-effective nature of renting a car, choosing a rental car at this airport is a great option for travelers.
  • While all the rental car companies that offer car rental at Lambert-St Louis Airport have a location offsite from the airport, the airport offers a free shuttle service that operates 24h per day and seven days per week from the terminal buildings to the rental car locations. To meet the shuttles, travelers should depart from Exit 17 of Terminal 1 and Exit 12 at Terminal 2.
  • Travelers should remember that when they are returning their Lambert-St Louis Airport car rental that they do not want to bring it back directly to the terminal building. Rental car companies expect drivers to bring the car back to the same lot from where they rented a car. Once you've dropped off your car, the same shuttle that brought you to the rental car center from the airport can bring you back to the airport terminal building quickly and conveniently.
  • Book your rental car at St. Louis Lambert Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at St. Louis Lambert Airport

  • What car rental companies are easiest to use at this airport?

    In general, the best choice for travelers that are looking for a speedy rental car experience is to use the largest rental car companies, such as Avis in Hertz. Not only do they have locations that are closest to the airport terminal buildings compared to other companies, but each of these locations will also have ample signage directing travelers to the cars they have rented, thus eliminating the need to wait in line or interact with staff when getting a car.

  • What type of documentation will I need to rent a car at the airport?

    If you are traveling to St. Louis from any state in the United States, all you will need to rent a car is a valid driver's license that is in the name of the person renting a car. If you are traveling to St. Louis from a country other than the United States, you can use a valid driver's license issued by your country of origin. In addition, you will also need a valid passport to present to the rental car company to rent a vehicle.

  • How long is it going to take me to get from the airport terminal building to my rental car company?

    Because all the rental car companies that offer service at this airport have a location that is just south of the airport property, you will find that the trip time to any rental car company from the terminal building should take around 3 to 5min time, depending on traffic conditions.

  • What is the best rental car company at St. Louis Lambert Airport?

    Based on ratings and reviews from real users on KAYAK, the best car rental companies at St. Louis Lambert Airport are Enterprise Rent-A-Car (8.6, 77 reviews), Hertz (7.8, 55 reviews), and Dollar (7.3, 68 reviews).

  • Which car rental companies will pick you up at St. Louis Lambert Airport?

    Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from St. Louis Lambert Airport to off-airport locations include Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Hertz, National, and Thrifty.

The staff was courteous and friendly. I liked the fact that I had a choice of which van I could use. There were several different colors (I went with the gray with black wheels). After that the check out was smooth.

Cons:

The airport location I picked it up at (Lambert-St. Louis) the Enterprise signage was not very prominent so it was little confusing finding it.

They were closed when my plane arrived (on time as scheduled at 8:30pm). I never got a car. They were unapologetic that not informing me there would be no airport pickup or way to get the car I reserved left me stranded and scrambling to find a rental car last minute. I will Never do business with Dollar again. I suggest removing this Dollar store from your lists so this does not happen to anyone else.

shuttle pick up at airport was poorly signed so I waited a while at the wrong place. Dollar pick up is in a completely different location to all the other rental car companies but they don't tell you. Fortunately, the Thrifty shuttle driver told me. when I picked up the car, they just pointed in the general direction of where it was parked and I had to search for it. I then had to go back to the counter as it had a scratch. there was not much help checking out. at the return, there was only 1 agent helping people pick up and drop off.

Better checking in procedures as passengers come in. They should be giving a number of something, said that they don't cut lines and people have to stand in line for hours waiting to check out, and the buddies come around holding the spots and checking in causing hazards. And someone is gonna get hurt. Especially located in saint, Louis Missouri. All the violence is that that that was a very bad experience I had. With budget thank you

At pickup, two employees were having a "robust" conversation as to who was responsible for listening to the vehicle numbers radioed back to them. It was a "passionate" conversation that prevented work from continuing. The conditions of some of the vehicles were a bit concerning. The F-150 clearly needed an alignment which could have been a safety issue. Another customer (disabled vet) was provided a Charger that had been in an accident. He waited around for roughly an half hour for help but no one came. He loaded his wheelchair into the trunk and left.

Long line because the checkout process hasn't changed in 30 years. Slow computers and too many unnecessary steps. Person offered me a pickup truck to get out faster. Got to the truck and someone else was in it. Then they gave me another car which was smoked in. Had to return to another Avis. They had no cars to swap but gave me a minivan that didn't have smoke, but wasn't clean. Worst rental experience ever. Will never use Avis ever again. It will go bankrupt.
