Car Rentals at SFO???

Anyone have a good suggestion for the easiest Car Rental company at San Francisco airport? I'm coming in from Boston and would love to just jump in a rental car, vs. taking a shuttle and waiting in line. Any good suggestions? Thanks

Yes, it is very convenient having all of the major car rental companies in one location. So easy to get on the airtrain and pop over to the car rental building to pick up your car without having to go to an off-airport location.

if you don't want to wait in line, you have to join those frequent renter programs. Some cost money like Hertz Gold.

We have not had to stand in line at SFO if we have reserved the car ahead of time.

I don't think there's an airport in the country (at least not a major metro one) where you can "just jump in a rental car vs. taking a shuttle."

As pp mentioned, if you belong to a loyalty program and have provided all your info previously, the rental agreement and signatures will be on file and the car will be waiting for you. But you'll still have to take the Air Train over to get it.
