Top tips for renting a car at Monterey Regional airport

  • Monterey Regional Airport (MRY) offers both commercial and general airline travel. From the airport, you can get to downtown Monterey and the surrounding Salinas communities by bus or taxi. The bus will get you to downtown Monterey in about 10 minutes. From the main station, however, you'll have to switch buses to go to other destinations. The taxi is another option but there is an airport surcharge both ways which makes this form of travel less cost-effective. If you rent a car at the airport, you can start sightseeing around the Monterey Bay area immediately.
  • The rental car counters are conveniently located in the main terminal on the first floor of the Monterey Regional Airport. They are close together and right next to baggage claim. The rental car lot is adjacent to and within walking distance of the terminal making it easy to get to your rental car. The car rental desks at Monterey Regional Airport are open when most flights arrive. That is from about 8 am to 10:30 pm.
  • Use KAYAK to find a great deal for car rentals at Monterey Regional Airport. You can use the search feature to find the perfect car for your budget. Rental car agencies with offices at this location include Avis, Alamo, Hertz, Enterprise, Budget, and National. You can also upgrade your car rental contract with add-ons like GPS, Toll Pass, roadside assistance, and refueling service.
  • Do you have special needs? The Monterey Regional Airport offers an array of amenities for disabled travelers. For example, if you need wheelchair assistance getting from your gate to the car rental center, you should make this arrangement with your airline. Passengers with special needs can also benefit from the airport's handicap-accessible restrooms and elevators to take you from one level of the airport to another.
  • Book your rental car at Monterey Regional airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Monterey Regional airport

  • How can I pay for my car rental at Monterey Regional Airport?

    The most common form of payment requested for car rentals at this location is a major credit card. This includes cards from American Express, MasterCard, Visa, Diner's Club, or Discover. Although some rental car agencies accept debit cards, you might only be able to use them at the end of your contract. In some other cases, you can use a debit card, however, you might be limited to renting a certain size or type of car. Other restrictions might also apply.

  • What documentation do I need for a car rental at Monterey Regional Airport?

    For starters, you'll need to show a valid driver's license in order to rent a car at Monterey Regional Airport. If you're a foreign driver, an international driver's license might be required.

  • Can I pick up or return my rental car during off hours?

    The Monterey Regional Airport closes at midnight and reopens at 4 am. However, the staff at the car rental agencies will not come in until a few hours later. If your flight lands at MRY at 6 am, you might need to make arrangements for an early pickup. Some car rental agencies will let you pick up your rental car outside of their standard business hours. However, you will have to make arrangements with the car rental agency for this service. Being at the Monterey Regional Airport makes it easy to return your rental car when the agency is closed. To return your rental car, you can park it in the rental car lot and return your keys to the car rental return counter dropbox.

I made the reservation through Kayak, they called me 1 hour before the pick up time and told me they don’t have the car. The person I talked to was very rude, refused to let me talk to his manager, refused to tell me his full name, and at the end told me his is not going to do anything for me.

Pros:

Able to reserve the all-wheel drive, large-size SUV the day before I needed it and at a very good rate on kayak.com, far less than I expect to pay (40% less than several direct car rental websites). Vehicle was in excellent condition with only 8,000 miles on it. Ran beautifully from Monterey to Tahoe and back through some pretty rough storm conditions. Easy pick-up and return at the Monterey Regional Airport.

Cons:

There was nothing I didn't like about the rental car or the company, or the process of getting it online through kayak.com.

Pros:

No, I tried to call their office various times the day before, and they put me on hold for a long time twice, then just hung up the 3rd try. After that it just went to corporate.

Cons:

The young man I encountered upon arrival was very brusque. Whipped thru the paperwork, and when I asked to confirm the quoted price, he said a price of $40 more. I asked why and he said it was because I was picking it up early (less than an hour difference, the flight was a bit early). He re-did it all to reflect the price I was quoted. Never had anything like that happen before.

Pros:

The staff was great, the service was excellent - easy pick up and drop-off (and the woman staffing the desk remembered me three days later!). I found the entire experience to be easy and understandable (where to go, what to do, etc.) from beginning to end.

Cons:

The car wasn't all that great. It was safe, it was functional, and it was most definitely clean. However, I would have preferred something a little more comfortable and modern, even at my small-car/low-level need.
