San Francisco Airport Mini Guide

Thirteen miles from the City of San Francisco is California’s second biggest airport, San Francisco International. Flights from all over the world land here, including ones from London Heathrow, it know as a more refined sister to Los Angeles being more laid back.

To collect a rental car, you will need to take the AirTrain Blue Line to the car rental centre where all the final formalities will be completed and then you can start exploring the city and the bay area.   As SFO is on the US Interstate 101 this makes this perfect base for a road trip along the stunning Californian coast.
