About the Guadalajara Airport (GDL), Mexico
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!

Drivers aged between 21 and 24 might be subject to additional local fees and may not be allowed to book vehicles under the Premium, Specialty, SUV, Minivan, Van, Convertible, Utility and Luxury Vehicle categories. Additional drivers must be at least 25 years old.
Each driver must present a full, valid and original national driver's license held for minimum of 2 years. If your license is not in a language used in your destination country, an International Driver's Permit to accompany your national driver's license is highly recommended.

The renter must present a personal credit card, valid in the country of pick-up with enough funds to put a hold for a security deposit. Third-party credit cards will not be accepted. The car rental 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 rental company will place a hold in the amount of the security deposit and, when applicable, any additional local fees not covered in the prepaid voucher on the card provided at the rental location.

You must present a printout of the Booking Confirmation Voucher at the rental location. This document officially confirms all agreed upon services, payment conditions, rates, discounts, as well as vehicle availability within the group selected.
