Its two-level single passenger terminal features retail shops, dining options, and a Tourist Information Center.

Driving tips for your Sav Airport car rental

Keep these driving tips in mind when you pick up Savannah Airport rental car.

  • It’s a slower way of life down in the South, and the locals’ driving often reflects that. Do like they do and take your time!

  • Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport is situated 16 kilometres northwest of downtown Savannah. Drive Gulfstream Road out of the airport to GA-21 S onto I-516 E and exit to W Bay Street. Or use the GA-307 S from the airport to US-80 E and reach W Bay Street. Both of these routes will bring you to the northwest part of the city in around 20 minutes.

  • The majority of the city is built on a grid system, which makes getting around Savannah in your rental car straightforward.

  • Savannah is a very bike-friendly city. Be aware of cyclists when driving.

  • Historical building restoration projects may cause roadblocks on occasion.

  • Georgia law requires you to turn the car’s headlights on in the rain.

  • On-street parking is limited in downtown Savannah, but there are numerous parking garages offering full-day parking passes at affordable rates. If you park your rental car on the street, metered parking is between 7:30am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.
