KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Grand Island

  • Situated less than 5 miles to the northeast of downtown Grand Island, the Central Nebraska Regional Airport (GRI) makes an ideal location for getting car rentals in Grand Island. In this small but convenient single-terminal airport, you can conveniently find the car rental counters at the arrivals exit, near the baggage claim carousel. Once you have shown the necessary documentation, completed your paperwork, and gotten your keys, you can find the rental cars parked in the airport parking lot right outside of arrivals.

Pros:

It was a good experience over-all. But with my late arrival and early departure, I was concerned, so I showed up 45 minutes earlier than normal, just in case there was a glitch. But for a small airport, everything worked fine.

Cons:

Pickup by taxi to Budget location a few miles from the airport. This actually worked OK, but I was leaving on a 6 AM flight and I was a little concerned about the taxi showing up in a timely fashion. He showed up promptly after my call. Actually, it worked better than some off-airport shuttles that I have used.

Pros:

Friendly manager and decent value

Cons:

Budget location is off airport. The taxi company used allows their drivers to smoke in the vehicle. Both going and coming home the taxi reeked of cigarette smoke.
