San Francisco Airport Inspiration from Alamo

Arriving at San Francisco Airport

When flying towards San Francisco Airport, you'll probably be greeted by searing Northern California sunshine, or fog that famously hangs over the waterside city (depending on the time of day – the mist usually clears by midday). Whatever weather phenomenon you encounter; you'll no doubt be excited to land in the U.S.

Organising car hire from San Francisco Airport couldn’t be easier with Alamo Rent A Car. After you've picked up your suitcase from baggage reclaim, make your way to the Alamo desk. Simply take the Air Train, which operates regularly, to the fourth floor of the Rental Car Centre to pick up your comfy rental vehicle. The Alamo counter is open 24 hours to meet your needs, whatever time your flight gets in.

Travelling from San Francisco Airport

Once you've picked up your car, you'll be ready to drive to the heart of the Golden City. If you organise car hire from San Francisco Airport, prepare yourself to experience one of the busiest airports in the U.S. Located on North McDonnell Road, it takes approximately 30 minutes to drive downtown, where you'll be met with an array of amazing sights, from history-rich Fisherman's Wharf (the most popular tourist destination in San Francisco) to Union Square (the jewel of San Francisco's many shopping districts).

Driving in San Francisco

After you've settled into your hire car, you'll be ready to cruise around San Francisco and absorb all the iconic sights. Driving over the Golden Gate Bridge to the town of Sausalito is a must. Like all of the beautiful Bay Area, Sausalito boasts a sunny climate year round. Unlike the big city just two miles across the water, Sausalito is far quieter, and enjoys less fog and more sunshine. Also, be sure to take the sought after drive down the east-west road on Lombard Street in the Russian Hill neighbourhood. It's famous for being the most crooked street in the world.
