Top tips for hiring a car at El Paso airport

  • Car rental at El Paso Airport is convenient compared to other transport options because you don't have to wait for a shuttle bus or outside the terminal. This is a great option if you are in town for just one day, flying out at night, and not renting a car until tomorrow. The car rental process here is simpler and less time-consuming than at many other airports around.
  • The most common cars at the airport car rental center include compact, intermediate, and full-size vehicles. You can also rent a minivan, SUV, or luxury car. An SUV works best if you have a lot of luggage or are traveling with children. On the other hand, a minivan is better for larger families. When you make the reservation, be sure to say if you need an extra driver and mention any special needs that may require hand controls for driving.
  • This airport is usually busy between the hours of 7 am and 9.30 pm. To avoid too much hassle, opt for a car rental at the airport on either end of this time window. This said, the best time to rent your car at El Paso Airport is usually in the morning.
  • When you need to return your car rental at El Paso Airport, simply call the rental company and they will come to collect your vehicle. Some companies have return booths in downtown El Paso, which is about 15min from the airport. When you return it, be sure that no damage has occurred during your stay as this can cause delays in returning the car or even a denial of service altogether.
  • Book your car hire at El Paso airport at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car at El Paso airport

  • Where can I book a car rental at El Paso Airport?

    The El Paso Airport car rental center is located on the lower level of the terminal, near gates E14-E44. You can access this area via the airport's D Concourse. Otherwise, you can come in via the A Concourse and take the sky bridge over. Most companies are situated near baggage claim as well. Distance from the airport's car rental center to the central business district is 25min driving and 45min by public transport.

  • What type of documentation is required to rent a car at the airport?

    All drivers aged 25 and over will need to produce a valid driver's license from their country of residence. If you’re not from the U.S., you'll also be asked for proof of your current address in the form of a utility bill that has been dated no more than three months ago, or an International Driving Permit. You may also be asked for a credit card to hold the car rental. For insurance purposes, you will need to provide proof of insurance that meets the minimum requirements.

  • Do I have to pay for parking my car rental at El Paso Airport?

    No, the Airport car rental center is located on the same level as the terminal, so you won't need to feed any money into an automated machine. You can also leave your vehicle at one of several off-site facilities if that's preferred. When you return your rental vehicle, be sure that there's no damage and any paperwork has been signed by both parties.

  • What amenities are available at the airport car rental center?

    There's a spacious waiting area at the car rental center, as well as a lounge to relax in or make use of power points for recharging devices. There are family restrooms on-site and plenty of seating. You can also get a free cup of coffee or tea while you wait. Some car rental companies offer free shuttle service to and from the airport for their customers. This is a great option if you want to avoid the hassle of taking public transport or have too many bags to carry on foot.

  • Which car hire companies will pick you up at El Paso airport?

    Car hire companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from El Paso airport to off-airport locations include Advantage, Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Europcar, Hertz, National, and Payless.

Pros:

The staff in the pickup and return area is very courteous and helpful. The car was exceptionally clean.

Cons:

Telephone service, needs work. Customer support is obviously farmed out overseas and if the problem isn't in their book they simply keep repeating what's in front of them. In 4 attempts over 3 hours no one at the rental desk in the airport (ELP) ever answered the phone.

Pros:

Picking up from DFW was the best experience I had, honestly the only reason why they get 3 stars & not just 1. Took about 10 min tops & customer service was excellent!

Cons:

Dropping off in El Paso was easy & efficient but picking up another car 4 days later was a nightmare. Took over 40 min just at the desk (there were 2 people ahead of me). Once we were in the parking lot to pick up the car, there was only one person working outside, but he was too busy on a personal call to help us. When he finally came over to tell us which car we could take, he didn't get off the phone, & just said, you can take that one, & went back into his booth, still on his cell phone, while we waited for him to let us out at the exit, which he walked to a couple minutes later, still on his phone. We were the only ones there! The car didn't have any windshield wiper fluid & the remote didn't work. My card was charged 2 separate amounts that didn't add up to the total on my receipt, it was for almost $30 more, & after being reimbursed for some of the inconveniences, the second amount is still on hold almost 2 weeks later & when I call Alamo, I keep getting different answers as to why, including, we don't show anything on hold, we show the transaction complete & there's nothing they can do except wait a few weeks & see if that amount is still on hold. DONT EVER RENT A CAR from the EL PASO LOCATION!

Cons:

I used the car exactly 24 hours but since the drop off city has an hour ahead in the time they charged me $38 additional to my bill. I paid because of my rush to take my flight but I don't think this is correct.

Pros:

Price was ok. No line at pick-up (which should have warned me)

Cons:

It took two people ten minutes to check me out (not including actual car pickup). During that time, I saw another person in line leave out of frustration. The car they rented me did not have a remote key, even though it should have had one. Only one door lock on the whole car. Had to lock the doors before closing, and I accidentally locked the key in the trunk once, which required me to call AAA. I'm positive they charged someone else that expensive key replacement fee in the past, and never got a new key.
