San Jose Airport Express Pick-up and Drop Off

Your rental vehicle will be waiting for you at the airport Arrivals parking lot when you land, with everything ready to go. We will send you a message with the parking spot number and photo of the vehicle, so you could find it quickly.

No waiting for shuttles or standing in line.

With Jaco Car Rental, you’ll be on your way in minutes!

VIP Vehicle Delivery Service

We can deliver the rental vehicle to your hotel or AirBnB, within our service area. Please contact us with the address to confirm.

If you’re arriving late in the day and are staying overnight in the San Jose area, we can bring the vehicle right to your hotel, as early as 7 am the following morning.  That way you can get some rest and head out first thing in the morning, all while saving a day of car rental.

Discounted Shuttle to Jaco

If you’re heading to the Central Pacific Coast, and will be going to, or passing through Jaco, we can arrange for a discounted shuttle to bring you from the airport to our office in Jaco and pick up your rental vehicle there.

If you’re staying in Jaco, our shuttle can bring you from the airport to your hotel or AirBnB and we will bring the rental car right to your door!
