Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport is located in the town of Hollywood just south of Fort Lauderdale in Florida. It is less than 2 miles from the beach front, and 5 miles from the main cruise Terminal buildings, as well as being conveniently located for Miami, which is around an hour by road to the south.
Fort Lauderdale is best known as a major centre for the Caribbean Cruise industry, and is one of the busiest passenger ports in the US, but it is also a destination that has plenty to offer for visitors. Fort Lauderdale itself is a relatively quiet resort town, but by hiring a car, you could explore some of the areas nearby including Miami around an hour to the south, or head inland for the Everglades National Park, which can be reached in around 3 hours. Make sure your vehicle comes with Air Conditioning ? especially during the summer months when Florida gets very humid.
Rather than having desks inside the Terminal building, at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport, all of the car rental companies are based in a dedicated rental centre which is located in a building adjacent to Terminal 1 of the airport. On arrival at the airport, you pass through the various security controls, and then leave the building. The rental centre is clearly signposted throughout the airport. At the airport, you can find desks for Thrifty, Royal, Payless, National, EZ Rentacar, Hertz, Alamo, Advantage, Dollar, Budget , Avis and Enterprise .
From the beach in Fort Lauderdale, you would head inland using the route 870, which takes you as far as the Ronald Reagan Turnpike. Turn left to head south as far as Broadview Park where you head back out towards the coast on the Port Everglades Road that runs direct to the airport. From Miami and other cities to the south, you would follow Route95 north from the city centre. This road runs directly to the airport gates. From the Everglades National Park, you would drive east along Route 75 through Weston, and join the Ronald Reagan Turnpike to get you into the airport.
