Ways to pick up a rental car at an airport

Published 11 de March de 2024 by admin
Imagine this scenario: the long-awaited trip you planned has finally arrived. With all the excitement in the world, you gather your belongings, disembark from the plane… And now what?
If you’ve booked a rental car, you may have to go through quite a few (quite a lot) procedures that could turn your first day of vacation into an exhausting experience. How to avoid this? By opting for a pickup option that suits you.

Methods of picking up your rental car at the airport

Users often don’t realize that there are different ways to collect their vehicle. It is advisable to know this beforehand in order to make the most appropriate decision:

Traditional Pickup

Traditional pick-up is done at the company’s counter, so you have to go there to pick up the vehicle. Users can face long queues of over an hour at the counters, which can be very frustrating when you want to enjoy your trip as soon as possible or get to that work meeting on time.
Some companies are even starting to take advantage of this situation by offering a premium fast queue that you can access for an additional payment.
So… should I avoid traditional pickup?
Not necessarily. This option is convenient at small airports where personalized service can be provided in a matter of minutes. In fact, it is the system we use at our offices at Castellón Airport with very positive reviews from our customers (4.9 out of 5 stars on Google).

Shuttle Bus to the rental office

Another common alternative is to use shuttle buses, buses that take users to locations away from airports where rental counters are located. At Malco, we discourage this option because it adds another step to the traditional pick-up process, especially if you are traveling with children or a lot of luggage.

Meet&Greet Method – What is it?

This is where Meet&Greet comes in, offering a hassle-free experience from the moment you arrive at the airport and making things much easier in busy locations. This is the system we use at Valencia and Alicante airports to provide the best possible service.
How does Malco’s Meet&Greet work? This type of pick-up is characterized by its convenience and the ease with which all procedures are completed.
  1. Customers go to a meeting point near the airport, which they have been informed of in advance.
  2. A Malco representative will be waiting for them.
  3. At the same meeting point, the vehicle is collected without complications or excessive paperwork.  
It is that simple!
In summary, the Meet & Greet service simplifies the car rental process at busy airports, providing travelers with a faster and easier experience.
If you’re looking for a stress-free car rental experience on your next trip, consider the Meet & Greet service and enjoy a hassle-free start and end to your adventure.
