Top tips for renting a car at Buffalo Airport

  • A great feature of car rental at Buffalo Airport (BUF) is that they have six major rental car companies that most travelers are familiar with. What is even better is that all six of the companies have their customer service counters on the first floor of the Ground Transportation Center that is right across the street from the terminal building. All the cars that they have available for rent sit in the parking lots of the Ground Transporation Center that is adjacent to the terminal building, just outside of the baggage claim area. The cars are one floor down from the customer service counters in the parking structure.
  • When you are ready to return your car rental at Buffalo Airport, follow the ample signage you will find along Highway 33 as you approach the airport. Once you are on the airport property, proceed to the Ground Transportation Center and head to the appropriate location for your rental car company. Once you're there, park and lock your car and note your gas level and mileage. Take your keys and your contract and hand them to a staff member or simply drop them in the dropbox.
  • Since this is an airport that serves a rather large city, you can find several transportation options to get you from the airport to the center of town. The only problem with these modes of transportation such as buses and taxis is that they can be a problem both in terms of how you're going to transport all of your things and in terms of the ongoing cost of using them. That is what makes car rental at Buffalo Airport such a great combination of convenience and cost savings.
  • Like a lot of major airports in the United States, this airport experiences busier times throughout the day. For travelers that are arriving on flights at this airport and plan on renting a car, you should expect the busiest time of the day will be between 3 pm and 6 pm and then again from 10 pm until midnight. During these times you should expect longer wait times to pick up your Buffalo Airport car rental. That is one of the reasons it is vital to book a car before your trip to this airport.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars at Buffalo Airport for $74 or less
  • Book your rental car at Buffalo Airport at least 5 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Buffalo Airport

  • What documents are required to book a rental car at this airport?

    If you reside in the United States, simply provide your valid driver's license to rent your car. If you are from a country other than the United States, you can use your driver's license from that country as well and the rental car company will most likely want another form of identification to rent your car.

  • Am I allowed to take my rental car across the border into Canada?

    Most of the rental car companies here will allow you to take their rental cars into Canada with no restrictions. It is important to let the rental car company know that you plan on taking your car across the border because they will need to provide you with an insurance card for non-residents. They will do this at no cost to you. Some providers here will also allow you to do a one-way rental to cities in Canada from this airport.

  • What is a popular type of car to rent at this airport?

    The type of car you rent comes down to the reason you are visiting this part of the world. If you are traveling here with a large group and plan on doing a lot of outdoor activities, an SUV is a good choice, especially when roads can be icy or slippery. If you are making a business trip to this area, an economy model is a great way to save a little bit of money on your trip.

I feel scammed /cheated. The price that I have booked during online is totally different when I pay in on the spot. The charges is way higher than expected and it is almost double as what I have booked online. There are additional different types of tax in the payment and the taxes prices is totally different when I book online. The customer service doesn’t allow me to negotiate and he said it is a must to pay. I have no choice because I need the car in hurry. I’m asking for refund for those additional charges.

Pros:

The staff at Buffalo changed my rate on an upgrade instead of just an additional $10. I was very pleased with the drop off for the manager was able to correct the mistake that was done.

Cons:

The whole process of dropping off at a different location was good but please pay attention to the pickup location. Make sure you are getting what was quoted to you and save the email with your confirmation information. I questioned it before I left, but it wasn’t corrected but thankfully it was on the other end.
