San Juan Airport Guide

Car Hire

Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport, also called San Juan International Airport, is the primary air gateway to the city of San Juan, capital of the island nation of Puerto Rico. San Juan is a popular destination for travellers from the US as it offers a great introduction to the Caribbean. It features a strong Latin culture because of its Spanish heritage but it also has American influence, being a US Commonwealth territory. Driving is a popular option here because exploring at your own pace means you get to fully appreciate the vibrant culture and the breathtaking scenery.

Who to Book With
The car hire agencies present at the airport have desks on the first level of Terminal D. Those arriving at Terminal A, the only terminal physically separated from the rest, can easily walk in the terminal complex to reach the other building. Visitors can use the services of any of the following car rental companies: Enterprise, National, Hertz, Dollar, Charlie, Avis, Budget and Thrifty.

Need to Know Essentials
You will need to show the following documents at vehicle collection:

- Foreign license (preferably International Driving Permit)
- Identity papers (passport, etc.)
- Credit card (the one used in the booking)
- Booking verification form

The FAQs contain more info.

Most of the traffic laws in Puerto Rico are similar to the general laws currently enforced in the US. Though some of the signs within and around San Juan are in Spanish, they will not be that difficult to follow as the symbols should be familiar to those used to driving in the US. Note that parking is difficult in the touristy areas of the capital, particularly the historic district of Old San Juan. Outside of these main attractions, however, parking will be easier to find, although it will involve some parking charges.

Our guide has a few more tips on driving in Puerto Rico.


Though Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport is located outside of the main city it services, San Juan, it is only three miles from it. Driving will be an easy task. Thus, self-drive is a fairly common option for both locals and tourists. Taxis, buses and a rapid transit train ply routes in the city, but the train line is currently limited and does not service the airport or the central areas of San Juan.

Each of the terminals has a taxi rank outside its first level. The drive to San Juan city centre can take about 30 to 45 minutes depending on the traffic. Visitors must note that in Puerto Rico, travellers have the option of hiring ordinary cabs and tourist cabs. The advantage of the latter is that for a slightly higher fare, the drivers offer you their knowledge of the city's main tourist attractions.

Taxi prices:
Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport to Old San Juan via tourist taxi is £12
Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport to Condado or Miramar via tourist taxi is £10
Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport to Isla Verde via tourist taxi is £7.

Buses are cheap at significantly less than a pound per ride and are the preferred mode of transport for many of the locals of San Juan. However, do note that the official bus timetables are only sometimes followed. Many buses arrive late and during rush hour, they are filled to the brim. It is not a good idea to rely on buses when catching onward transport or flights.


The airport has five terminals but only two terminal buildings. Terminal A is separated from the other four by only a few feet. The airport receives around eight to 10 million passengers annually. Many major cities in the US such as Orlando, Atlanta, Chicago, New York, and so on have direct flights to San Juan.

American Parking System operates the parking facilities of the airport. There is a multi-storey car park in front of the terminals with both short-term and long-term parking. The first 30 minutes of parking costs £0.6, the second £2 and any additional hour £1.3.

The airport does not have internet access points or Wi-Fi services.

Information Services
Terminal D, level 1, has a Traveller's Aid counter, while Terminal C has a tourist information counter.

VIP Lounges
Terminal D has the American Airlines Admiral's Club, Terminal B the Delta Airlines Crown Room and Terminal C the Continental Airlines President's Club.

Money and ATMs

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?
