National San Diego International Airport Airport

San Diego International Airport (SAN) is located nearby to the city centre of San Diego, in the American state of California. It is amongst the busiest thirty airports in the country, as it handles almost seventeen million passengers per annum, and has in the past, been rated as one of the best airports in the world in the category of airports handling 15 to 20 million passengers. It has all the facilities its passengers require, including several San Diego International Airport car hire companies, which all offer a wide selection of vehicles for leisure and business travel purposes. National Car Hire is one of these companies, and is mainly used by business travellers.

This American airport consists of three terminal buildings, two of which have a significant number of airline gates, while the third is a building with just four airline gates, and is used for all flights between San Diego and Los Angeles. It is referred to as the Commuter Terminal. Terminal 1 is home to a number of airline companies, and Terminal 2 is used for international flights. Passengers arriving at the airport will find facilities such as currency exchange services, ATMs, lost and found offices and accessible restrooms at their disposal, and will be able to reach the airport’s car hire companies by shuttle bus, as they are located within the terminal buildings. The shuttles leave from the centre traffic aisle at Terminal 1 and from the traffic island at the west end of Terminal 2. Both of these terminals feature an East and West side.

In the terminals as well, there are courtesy car rental telephones, which can be used to reach National, and to request a shuttle services, should there not be one available upon your arrival. A vehicle that is equipped with a wheelchair lift can also be requested via these telephones. Alternatively, passengers who require assistance will find the airport volunteers to be extremely helpful. In the future, as part of the airport’s development, a single building is planned that will house all the San Diego International Airport car rental companies, and which will reduce the number of shuttles that are required by passengers.

National is a company with over fifty years of experience in the car hire industry, and have made a good name for themselves amongst corporate clients. They have focused their attention and services on the frequent airport business traveller, and was the first company to introduce a comprehensive frequent-renter program. This program goes by the name of Emerald Club, and is today enjoyed by thousands of National’s customers. It offers benefits that may include car rental discounts, and helps to expedite the process of renting a vehicle. The membership is free of charge, and is not a contract. It is ideal for anyone who is fond of National’s services, and who would like to save time and money when a rented car is required.

Vehicles hired from this airport location are available in various car groups. Each group contains vehicles of a different size or type, and the example car given for the category may vary, however, customers will receive a similar car. Most categories are available to renters between the ages of 21 and 24, but all are usually accessible to persons over the age of 25. Younger drivers may usually not hire a car from the Luxury or Premium categories, or from the categories which contain larger vehicles, such as Fullsize SUV, Minivan and Passenger Van. It is also quite possible for young renters to pay higher rates for their chosen vehicle, as a young driver surcharge will be applicable.

There are many vehicles that seat five passengers, some with more room for luggage than others, but all come with automatic transmissions and usually air conditioning and airbag protection. A few examples are the Chevrolet Aveo, Nissan Versa, Toyota Corolla, Ford Fusion, Chevrolet Impala, Toyota Avalon, Cadillac DTs, Ford Escape and Jeep Grand Cherokee. The last two mentioned are SUVs, while a few are more elegant vehicles ideal for grander business occasions. Available from National as well are Crossovers such as the Dodge Journey and GMC Acadia, convertibles similar to the Ford Mustang, larger SUVs such as the Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet Suburban and Lincoln Navigator, and Minivans and Passenger Vans such as the Dodge Grand Caravan, Toyota Sienna and Chevrolet Express.

The car category chosen should contain vehicles with sufficient room for passengers and luggage items, and all additional items of equipment required is recommended to be requested in advance. Satellite navigation systems can be useful, child seats are available in various sizes and National’s hand control equipment may be used by persons with a lower limb disability. From all the car hire companies at San Diego International Airport, hand controls are free of charge. As well, from National San Diego International Airport, one way hire services can be arranged, allowing the renter to return their vehicle to an alternative rental location. There may be additional charges for one way hires from National, but they could be more convenient for certain travel itineraries.

The primary renter of a vehicle from National should personally collect the vehicle from the rental counters, and should have their valid drivers license and a major credit card in their name on hand. Other documents may also be required, such as a form of identification other than a drivers license, and a passport if from a foreign country.
