The Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport (MSP) offers convenient services for air travelers.

MSP features two terminals. Also known as Lindbergh, Terminal I provides access to both off-airport and on-airport car rental companies. Travelers securing car rentals off the airport site can go to Terminal 1 between the Red and Blue parking ramps. Follow signs to the Tram level to board the underground tram to the Transit Center. After exiting, go up one level. Shuttles buses at that location transport passengers to off-site rental car lots.
Rental counters for Terminal 1 on-airport car rentals are found between the Red and Blue Parking ramps on both the second and third levels. Passengers can take the tram to the Red and Blue ramp to the appropriate level.
Terminal 2 is also known as the Humphrey Terminal. On-airport car rentals for Terminal 2 are accessible on the Purple parking ramp level across from the Terminal 2 building. Counters for on-site car rentals are inside the Ground Transport Center. Terminal 2 does not offer off-airport car rental counters.
Drivers should read the rental contract. Details concerning deposits, late returns, fuel charges, or insurance coverage often varies between companies. Drivers should be aware of procedures to follow in case of an accident or needed repairs. For car returns, drive the rental car to the same site at the given time as directed in the rental car agreement.
Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport offers a wide variety of brands, types and sizes of rental cars. Rental car staff can assist with directions to exit the airport safely. The companies also provide area maps for the driver’s convenience.
