Oakland International Airport Rental Car Center

If you're flying into OAK and searching for a hassle-free all-in-one car rental service, head to the nearby consolidated center. Situated in the northern part of the airfield grounds, it’s home to major agencies that offer top-quality pick-up/drop-off options for arriving and departing passengers.

The Oakland Airport Rental Car Center address is 7600 Earhart Road, Oakland, CA 94621 - it operates 24 hours a day and sits a mile and a half from the terminals. In case you are cruising to RCC from downtown Oakland by a personal car, get on I-880 and then take exit 36 toward Hegenberger Rd/Coliseum. After this, turn right onto CA-61 N/Doolittle Dr and then left onto Langley St. Continue following the blue signs to enter the Car Rental Return lane and arrive at the facility.

Renters starting their journey from terminals have a completely different transport strategy. The free shuttle service is responsible for getting such travelers to the RCC.

Oakland Airport Rental Car Center shuttle

Whether you are coming from Terminal 1 or 2, your task is to catch a free shuttle from Oakland Airport to the Rental Car Center. After landing and collecting your luggage, exit the baggage claim area and proceed to the signposted shuttle stop. Buses depart at the ground level from the 3rd curb outside the building, with lines running every 10 minutes. The average time required for a terminal-to-RCC journey is 8-15 minutes depending on traffic intensity. Keep in mind that shuttle service may be limited between 1:30 am and 4:30 am so be prepared to spend more time traveling during this period due to longer waits. Once you get off the shuttle, you can proceed to your company, sign the agreement, and be on your way.

If your agency is based outside the airport, you need to drive from Oakland Airport to the Rental Car Center first, then board their shuttle and reach their office. Also, you can call them after deplaning to negotiate a bus collection point, in case you haven't done so in advance.

Rental car return

Returning your vehicle to OAK Airport follows a familiar procedure - you arrive at your company's specialized drop-off parking lot, the vehicle undergoes inspection, and you receive a receipt for the closed agreement. If your agency sits within the RCC, drive your vehicle to the appropriate garage. For off-airport companies, you drop off your vehicle at their nearby parking lot, then take a transfer to the facility, and finally take a shuttle bus to the terminal from there.

Oakland Airport Rental Car Facility map

The RCC at OAK Airport is a large complex that includes a multi-level service building plus several open-air parking areas for car pick-up/drop-off/storage purposes. It occupies the area between Earhart Rd on the west and Doolittle Dr on the east side, which allows for all the necessary amenities to be placed as efficiently as possible.

So, Enterprise, Alamo, and National (marked in green) occupy almost the entire northwestern part of the facility. Representatives of the other holding - Avis, Budget, and Payless (red) - sit in the southern section, while Hertz, Dollar, and Thrifty (yellow on the map) can be found to the east of the service building. Finally, Fox (blue) provides rent-a-car procedures in the southeast corner of the RCC. At the same time, the facility itself has convenient access to 98th Ave and Hegenberger Rd, which joins I-880 and connects Oakland to San Jose. See the map below for more routes and information on getting around the area.
