Top tips for renting a car at Osaka Kansai Intl airport

  • Osaka Kansai Airport is located relatively far away from the city, which means you can leverage a rental car and experience the excellent roads as you drive to the city center. With a rental car, you can choose to stop along the way when you find a delightful POI, unlike shuttles, "Rapi:t" limited express and Haruka trains, or taxis that operate on a tight schedule following the same route. After all, you feel in control, free, and more confident on the road when you're the one behind the steering wheel.
  • It is essential to know that you will incur toll fees when returning your rental vehicle after your stay in Osaka. We recommend that you bring some cash so that you can pass seamlessly through the toll booths. It's also critical to ensure that you allow yourself ample time to return the car and close the rental agreement with your car rental at Osaka Kansai Intl Airport. If possible, drop off the vehicle at least 3h before your flight departure.
  • Once you're done driving, returning the car is straightforward since you're supposed to return it to your car rental agent at the airport. If you rented it on a one-way basis, return it to the specified location. Additionally, you must return the car with a full tank. If you're a foreigner, we advise that you refill the tank in a crewed gas station instead of a self-service station. A manned station saves you the hassle of trying to read Japanese. Don't forget to carry the receipt when closing the contract with your car rental at Osaka Kansai Intl Airport.
  • Like any other city, you can expect rush hour once you get to central Osaka. You want to avoid driving your rental automobile during these times to ensure you have an easy time getting around. The morning rush is around 7 am to 9 am, and the evening rush lasts from about 5 pm to 7 pm. Many residents commute to and from work during these times. If you must drive during the rush hour, we advise that you consider doing so in the evening because the morning rush is much heavier. The Sunday rush begins earlier in the afternoon as many people return from their weekend trips.

FAQs about renting a car at Osaka Kansai Intl airport

  • Where can I find car rental operators at Osaka Kansai Airport?

    After alighting your flight, you will find car rental counters in the Aeroplaza. The time you take to get there depends on the arrival terminal you're coming from. If you've arrived at Terminal 1, the agents are just 3min away using the 2F connection channel. Arriving passengers from Terminal 2 will have to board a free airport shuttle to the Aeroplaza, a short drive that takes about 7min. Once you complete the booking process, you can collect your car onsite.

  • What are the requirements when renting a car at Osaka Kansai Airport?

    Any traveler who wants to hire a vehicle from a car rental at Osaka Kansai Intl Airport must have attained the minimum driving age of 18 years. They also must have a valid, government-issued driver's license. If you're a foreigner, your Osaka Kansai Intl Airport car rental operator will need you to show an International Driver's License (IDL). US citizens can obtain the permit from AAA or AATA. Furthermore, you'll need a credit card from a major financial institution, sufficiently funded to cater to the rental costs.

  • What kind of automobile should I rent at Osaka Kansai Airport?

    The type of car you chose to hire depends on your travel needs. In case you plan on staying within the city and getting around on a budget, an Economy Class rental vehicle will serve you better. It comes in a relatively smaller size, and you can move and park it in crowded urban areas with more ease and less fuel. However, an intermediate SUV or a standard minivan is an ideal choice if you're on a family vacation. They have enough space for four or more passengers with adequate storage space.

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing!

Cons:

We reserved a minivan (Toyota Verso) on the Kayak website, and when we arrived at the pick-up location (Osaka Kansai Airport) we found out that the car company only stocks small cars which were not suitable for my 6 person family. This would have forced us to pay double the price just to rent two small cars. This was absurd! The car company blamed Kayak for false advertisement, since they don’t even stock minivans. We ended up canceling the reservation and just taking the bus, since it was a much cheaper option that renting two small cars. Not sure if I will ever use Kayak again due to this family vacation fiasco.

Pros:

Renting a car in Japan is a little adventurous, if only because one drives on the left and directions in Japanese are not so easy to follow if one doesn't speak and read that language. That is why having the rental car company switch the built-in GPS to English without extra cost and even without getting asked is a significant customer service achievement! The vehicle was ready at the appointed time, it took very little time to complete the paperwork (I had done this before, and the agent spoke just enough English for everything but to be smooth), and the return was equally unproblematic. I can highly recommend Times Car Rental.

Cons:

There were no problems of any kind.
