Several car hire companies operate in both terminals, and checking in is easy. Those who have pre-booked their service can simply present their paperwork when they arrive at the airport. The associate behind the counter will walk you through the formalities and help you connect to the car rental services area.

If you happen to return the vehicle outside of standard hours, there will be a clearly displayed box where you can drop your keys.
