Car rental location Richmond International Airport

Richmond International Airport Guide

Richmond International (RIC) Airport is seven miles southeast of the capital of Virginia State, Richmond City. The geographical location of Richmond airport has contributed greatly to the growth and success of the airport itself. Just a two hour drive from Washington DC, business travellers needing to visit Washington can use the slightly quieter Richmond airport as an alternative to Washington airport. For the tourist the Blue Ridge Mountains and Virginia Beach are a short drive. The ease of car rental at Richmond airport means that an inbound business traveller can be on their way to Washington with a minimum of fuss, and the tourist can be off on the heritage trail.

Richmond airport has teamed up with car rental search company Hotwire. They will find the best deal from more than 20 car rental agencies. The rental desk is in the airport itself and the car will be waiting in the lot making for a very efficient service.

Airport facilities are as good as you will find anywhere and meet the high expectations that travellers expect from an International airport. Full banking facilities are provided by BB&T of Virginia including foreign currency exchange. There are several ATM's around the airport complex at strategic locations. Business travellers are well catered for with a teleconferencing facility that includes free LAN internet connectivity and meeting or conference rooms for hire. The upper level of the terminal building has a wireless internet facility which, again, is free to use.

The disabled traveller is well catered for with lifts serving all the public areas, wheelchair availability on the upper level and specially designed rest rooms. There are the usual restaurants, bars and cafes with a wide range of food and drinks to choose from. Shopping facilities are available both before check in and after security checking.

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).
