Top tips for renting a car at Chennai airport

  • Choosing a car rental at Chennai Airport (MAA) can help you explore different destinations quickly or within a day, which would otherwise be impossible with public transportation. This can be helpful for those who want to explore more of Chennai city within a short time. With a car, you can start exploring the Marin beach and in the afternoon hours you're basking at Breezy Beach. Also, renting a car can be cheaper than taking taxis or other public transportation, especially if you're traveling with a group.
  • The type of car you rent at Chennai Airport will depend on your budget, your group size, and your trip plans. If you plan to explore the city, rent a smaller car to maneuver tight city spaces easily. If you are traveling with a large group, you may want to rent a van or SUV to fit the whole group. If you plan to take long drives out of the city, you may want to rent a luxury car that will make long drives comfortable. The most popular type of car at Chennai airport is economy class, which is perfect for budget-minded travelers.
  • Make sure to reserve your car in advance, as rental cars tend to fill up quickly during peak times, around 5 am to 9 am. This would help you avoid long queues at the car rental counter. Also, we recommend allowing yourself 30 minutes before pickup to account for time spent completing paperwork and getting acquainted with the car. Importantly, the car rental companies at the airport offer additional equipment at request, such as kids' safety seats. Check the available additional equipment and request them while making a reservation.
  • Regarding returning the car at Chennai Airport car rental counter, you are supposed to return the car during working hours. However, most rental companies have an after-hour delivery service if something happens and you can’t be there during working hours. You will need to drive the car, park it at the designated parking lot, and drop the keys at the after-hour drop box. Ensure that the car is in the same condition as during pick-up. The company staff will email your car rental receipt the following day.
