Top tips for renting a car at Tambor airport

  • One of the reasons that so many people choose to utilize car rental at Tambor Airport (TMU) is because it gives them the flexibility to travel in this amazing area on their own schedule. While travelers will certainly find some public transportation and taxi options to get them from the airport to their destination and to locations around this area, this can become an expensive and time-consuming affair as opposed to having your own rental car that lets you travel where and when you want.
  • Once you have made the choice to book car rental at Tambor Airport, you are going to find it a quite easy process because this smaller airport has all the customer service desks for the rental car companies right in the arrivals hall adjacent to the baggage claim area. Once you have visited your rental car company and picked up your keys and your contract, your vehicle is going to be sitting right outside of the terminal building in the parking lot right next door.
  • The process to return your car rental at Tambor Airport could not be easier. Drive back to the airport and make your way to the same parking lot where you picked up your car where you can easily park your car in one of the spots provided by the rental company. Lock your car and then bring your keys and your completed contract to the same customer service desk where you went to the car to complete your check in or alternatively, drop your keys and your contract in the rental company's dropbox.
  • Because this is a very popular spot for visitors making their way here on vacation, rentals can become difficult at the beginning of the weekend or during holidays when quite a few travelers are making their way to the airport. Because this is a smaller airport, Tambor Airport car rentals become more complicated if more than one flight arrives at the airport at about the same time.
  • Book your rental car at Tambor airport at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Tambor airport

  • Which of the rental car companies at Tambor Airport is easiest?

    Because most of the rental car companies at the airport are large brands travelers are familiar with, all of them will be relatively easy to utilize. If you happen to be a member of one of the loyalty rewards programs for the companies that operate at this airport, by all means, choose to utilize this company as this can offer me an expedited pickup process of your vehicle at this smaller airport.

  • What are some of the amenities available at the rental car center at Tambor Airport?

    Even though this airport does not have a dedicated rental car center, that does not mean there are not some great amenities you can utilize during your rental at the airport.

    Passengers who plan on renting a car at this airport will need a valid driver's license from their country of origin with their name on the license.

Cons:

The Tambor budget office is a one man shop, and apparently that one man doesn't like to work. We showed up on schedule to the Tambor airport, but there was no shuttle to pick us up. When we finally hitchiked our way to the Budget office, it was closed. So we had to get a taxi 30 minutes away. Was impossible to get in touch with Budget. Eventually did, car was supposed to be delivered next day, but was not, and no answer for calls. So... we failed to rent this car.

The booking could not have been easier. The shuttle was waiting at the airport, the cars were there as promised and the staff were friendly and courteous. I highly recommend this Budget location.
