The Guadalajara International Airport (GDL), also known as Guadalajara Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla Airport, is located just under 10 miles (about 35 minutes by car) from the heart of the city. Opened in 1951, the GDL is one of the biggest airports in Mexico and the third in number of flights. Aeroméxico, Volaris, Interjet, VivaAerobus, United Airlines and Copa Airlines all offer flights to and from GDL.
The GDL Airports has two terminals and an extra one that connects the airport to terrestrial modes of transportations. In the first two you’ll find stores and restaurants to enjoy yourself until your flight, banking services, tourist information, and VIP lounges.
If you plan on visiting Guadalajara, we recommend renting a car to make your trip easier and more comfortable. Rentcars.com finds and compares the best prices from the rental companies you already know and trust, such as Hertz, Alamo, Europcar, National, Sixt and local brands as well.
Once you’ve picked up your rental car, hit the road and get to know the capital of Jalisco! We suggest the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Hospicio Cabañas (a hospital turned into a museum for its incredible architecture), the Degollado Theater, and the Paseo Chapultepec. If you have enough time, we also recommend driving to Tlaquepaque (less than 4 miles from downtown Guadalajara), Tequila (42 miles), Chapala (31 miles) and Puerto Vallarta (205 miles) for its crystalline waters and beaches!

Additional drivers must be at least 25 years old.

The renter must present a valid and personal credit card with enough funds to be held as a security deposit. Third-party credit cards will not be accepted. The car hire company is solely responsible for approving the provided credit card. Online prepayment does not exempt the renter from providing a valid international credit card during vehicle pick-up. The hire company will place a hold in the amount of the required security deposit and, when applicable, any additional local fees not covered in the prepaid voucher will be charged to the card provided at the hire location.
You must present a printout of the Booking Confirmation Voucher at the hire location. This document officially confirms all agreed upon services, payment conditions, rates, discounts, as well as the availability of a vehicle from the selected group.

Hire car protections usually have the abbreviations CDW and LDW and protect the vehicle from robbery and damage in the event of collisions or accidents.

To pick up the car you must leave a security deposit, also called a pre-authorization. The amount is "blocked" on the renter's credit card and "unlocked" after the return of the car on the same conditions.
It is possible to add optional items to your reservation, such as GPS, child car seat or booster seat. Take advantage of those items so you don’t have to worry about it later!
If someone else is sharing the wheel with you, they need to be added to the car hire agreement as an additional driver and meet the same documentation and minimum age requirements as the main driver or hirer.
Check if your reservation has free mileage or not. Free mileage means you can ride as much as you like with the hire car and you will not pay extra depending on the ride.
