Cleveland Airport Guide

Car Hire

Cleveland Airport, known officially as Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, is the largest air hub in Ohio, serving more than eight million passengers each year. It is one of the smallest hubs for United Airlines and stands just 10 miles from the inner-city districts of Cleveland. Despite the fact that the airport boasts a rapid transit system that directly links passengers to downtown Cleveland, car rental at the airport is still a convenient option for arriving passengers. For a major US city, Cleveland and its traffic remain favourable for motorists.

Who to Book With
Rental cars at Cleveland Airport are not located on site. Instead, they are found just a few minutes’ drive from the terminals, at a purpose-built car hire facility. Some of the largest and most reputable rental agencies on the planet provide vehicles for passengers here, including Alamo, Avis, Dollar, National and Thrifty. It is best to book online before reaching Cleveland Airport, with the best deals had via our comparator site. A shuttle bus takes passengers from the terminal building to the rental car facility every 10 minutes, 24 hours.

Need to Know Essentials
To rent a car in Cleveland Airport, patrons must produce the following documents:

- A national driver’s licence
- A passport with a valid visa
- The credit card used for the reservation
- A confirmation slip or booking receipt

Cleveland is one of the easiest US metropolises to drive in. Streets are gridded, with very few one-way thoroughfares, which makes navigating easy. Signs are well-posted and routes to the nearest freeways are clearly marked. Despite boasting better traffic conditions than many other US cities, Cleveland still experiences stop-start traffic in the morning and evening rush hour periods. Three of the most important arterial roads that pass through the city include the I77, the I90 and the I480. Motorists should try to avoid driving in the eastern suburbs of the city.

Passengers will appreciate the transport options available at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. In addition to a plethora of car rental services, the facility boasts expedient rapid transit connections to downtown Cleveland, not to mention convenient bus and taxi options.

The airport connects to the downtown area via the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA). Passengers can jump onto the RTA’s Red Line trains at the lower level of the airport terminal. Trains leave every 15 minutes and take about 20 minutes to make the journey into central Cleveland’s Tower City Station. Tickets, which cost around £1.50 each, can be purchased at vending machines at the airport station. Passengers are reminded to keep tickets/cards in case trolling police ask for proof of payment.

Public buses only connect passengers to downtown Cleveland during early morning hours, when the train lines are closed. Nevertheless, there are several shuttle buses that provide transfers to nearby hotels.

Cleveland Airport offers a taxi service that is not only convenient, but relatively inexpensive. Meters are not used, as pricing is pre-determined according to zones. In addition to airport taxis, three cab companies operate at the facility, including Ace Taxi, Yellow Cab Company and Americab.


There is one main passenger terminal at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, although the building is divided into four concourses. Most flights are domestic, although there are several international routes, including flights to Toronto, Canada, and Cancun, Mexico. United Express is the busiest carrier at the airport.

There are three separate parking lots on site. The closest lot to the terminal building is the hourly, short-term garage, which charges only £2 per hour. The long-term parking garage is situated adjacent to the short-term lot. Daily prices max at around £6.50 here. A few minutes’ walk from the terminal is the Economy Lot, which will cost motorists £1.30 for the first hour or £5.30 for the entire day.

Wireless internet is provided by AT&T free of charge. Passengers need to have their own connection device.

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?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
