1. Car Rental Facilities at RSW:

Rental Car Center: Located adjacent to the main terminal, the Rental Car Center houses various major car rental agencies, ensuring you have a variety of options to choose from.

Advance Reservations: While last-minute rentals are possible, it's often advisable to book in advance. This ensures availability, especially during peak travel seasons, and may also secure better rates.

2. Essential Documentation:

Driving License and ID: A valid driver's license and a secondary identification (often a credit card) are essential along with your Car Hire Booking Confirmation. International travelers might need an International Driving Permit if their license isn't in English.

Insurance Considerations: Check with us about the different insurance options they provide. Weigh these against any existing coverages you may have to choose the best protection plan.
