San Jose Airport Mini Guide

San Jose Airport is found right on the outskirts of the city, less than two miles from the centre. Although classed as an international airport, its only flights outside of mainland USA are to Hawaii and Mexico.
Car hire offices will be found in the dedicated centre opposite Terminal B whilst Terminal A arrivals must get the shuttle transport to the building.
San Jose is the third biggest city in California and considered to be the capital of the high-tech industrial area, Silicon Valley. To see how the technology created there affects our daily lives, take advantage of your hire car, and visit the city’s Technology Museum, or for a less technical experience drive the short distance to the Winchester Mystery House. There, construction on the house continued for 38 years in the belief that ghosts would be warded off.
