Find Your Way Around Sacramento Airport

During your next visit to the California’s capital city, don’t compromise on your itinerary. See the attractions you want to take in—whether it’s Sutter’s Mill, where gold was discovered, or shopping at Arden Fair mall where retail therapy awaits—when you want to see them with a cheap Sacramento airport car rental.

Pick Up Your Car

When you exit your terminal, walk to the ground-level curb. The courtesy car rental shuttle arrives about every 10 minutes, and will bring you to the rental car facility. If you’re picking up a vehicle at an off-airport site, there may be a shuttle waiting for you that you have arranged for in advance with your preferred rental car provider. Because Sacramento International Airport (SMF) handles over 8 million passengers per year, we recommend reserving a car ahead of time to ensure you get the vehicle you want so you may explore Sacramento, located 10 miles northwest of the airport.

Out & About in Sacramento, CA

If you’re visiting during basketball season, drive out to Sleep Train Arena®—about 6 miles southeast of the airport—to watch the Sacramento Kings play. If you’ve got the kids with you, pay a visit to the Sacramento Zoo, about 14 miles south of the airport. The zoo is right next to Funderland Park and Fairytale Town, two amusement parks geared toward children up to 10 years of age.
Your Sacramento airport rental car can take you out of the immediate Sacramento area, too. Learn about the California Gold Rush and the general history of the state during a visit to Sutter’s Fort, located about 15 miles south of the airport. Should you wish to get out and enjoy nature, take I-80 about 52 miles east of Sutter’s Mill to the Folsom Lake State Recreation Area. Nestled in the Sierra foothills, this park offers bike trails and a lake perfect for kayaking, waterskiing, and other watersports.

Going Home

When you’re ready to leave Sacramento, return your SMF car rental to the rental car facility. This area, which holds all of the on-site car rental companies and their vehicles, was the first facility of its kind in the country when introduced in 1998. The shuttle will bring you to the airport’s two terminals, where you can relax after checking in. If you’re returning your car to an off-site rental company, you may need to make additional arrangements to get to the airport.
Watch the Kings play another game at the sports bar, or grab a cup of coffee to help you get some last-minute work done. Purchase some snacks for the plane at the sundry store, and if you’ve forgotten a gift for a special someone, stop by the on-site jewelry shop.
