Find Your Way Around Oakland Airport

Your trip to California is bound to be full of fun and excitement. The city of Oakland, known for good food and its proximity to the San Francisco Bay Area, is an ideal jumping off point for many adventures. Get your trip started on the right foot with a cheap Oakland airport car rental and see the northern part of the Golden State in style.

Pick Up Your Car at the Airport

Debark your plane and step outside Terminal 1. The complimentary rental car shuttle runs every 10 minutes, and it will bring you to the Rental Car Center, where you can pick up your car keys. Downtown Oakland is only five miles north of Oakland International Airport (OAK), so you’ll be ready to explore in no time. Should you reserve a vehicle through an off-site agency, you may arrange for shuttle transport to that agency from the terminal or the Rental Car Center.

Out & About in Oakland

Put an exclamation point on your Oakland trip with a visit to Jack London Square. Named for the legendary writer, this public space is right on the waterfront along Embarcadero, about 10 miles north of the airport. Take a cruise on the bay, enjoy delicious seafood at one of the restaurants, or watch street performers. If you’re visiting on a Sunday, be sure to purchase some delicious local produce from the farmers market. Are you in Oakland during baseball season? Head to Coliseum® to watch the Oakland A’s attempt to win the American League pennant.
Your Oakland airport rental car will take you beyond Oakland, if you chose. Twenty miles northwest of the airport is Pier 39, one of San Francisco’s top attractions. Eat clam chowder out of a sourdough bowl, watch the sea lions frolic, and learn more about the Bay Area’s unique oceanic ecosystem with a trip to the Aquarium by the Bay. Should you wish to go on a longer adventure, the Bay Area’s wine country, Napa, is 60 miles north of OAK on I-80. Do some shopping, sample some vintages, and marvel at the beautiful territory.

Returning Your Car & Relaxing in the Terminal

When you’re ready to head home, bring your rental car back to the Rental Car Center. The shuttle, which runs every 10 minutes, will bring you back to OAK’s two terminals. If you’ve rented a car from an off-site agency, you may need to make alternative arrangements through your preferred provider to return to the airport.
OAK serves over a dozen airlines, among them Southwest and Alaska, and offers a number of eateries and retail opportunities for you to explore while you are waiting for your flight. Study some of the artwork located within the terminals, then grab a quick meal at the food court. Alternatively, sit down for some Mexican food, or enjoy a visit to the candy store to pick up a last-minute snack for your flight.
