Top tips for hiring a car in Mississippi Gulf Coast

  • One of the best places to pick up a rental car in Mississippi Gulf Coast is at Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport. The car rentals are located at the Rental Car Terminal, which is situated at the Ground Transportation level of the airport. This terminal offers a convenient and efficient way to access rental cars for your travel needs in the region. With a rental car, connecting to various parts of the Mississippi Gulf Coast from the airport is a hassle-free process.
  • The Mississippi Gulf Coast features a diverse terrain, including beautiful beaches, marshlands, and urban areas. The roads in the region vary from highways to local streets, with generally good conditions. For a comfortable and versatile experience, renting a midsize or full-size car is recommended. These vehicles offer ample space, smooth driving on highways, and the ability to handle coastal roads and rural areas, making them suitable for exploring the city and its surroundings. Additionally, the type of car you should rent in Mississippi Gulf Coast will depend on the number of people traveling with you and/or the volume of your luggage. For example, if you are traveling alone, with perhaps just one bag, an Economy car will be a suitable option.

While the region is gradually expanding its electric vehicle infrastructure, there are already numerous EV charging stations available, especially in major cities like Gulfport and Biloxi.

It's an excellent way to explore the scenic coastal areas and support sustainable travel while contributing to a cleaner environment.

Roads like Interstate 10, Highway 49, and Highway 90 are heavily affected during these times, leading to traffic congestion. Additionally, limited availability of specific car models, especially during peak tourist seasons, may require early reservations for preferred vehicle types.
