Top tips for hiring a car at Pierre airport

  • Pierre Airport (PIR) is just a few minutes from downtown Pierre. It is a small airport and is easy to get around. There is no public transportation from the airport to the city. You can take a taxi into the city, but there is only one company that travels to and from the airport. Therefore, a rental car is the most convenient transport from the Pierre Airport to your destination. Having a car rental, you'll also have the freedom to sightsee and visit friends/family on your own schedule.
  • Car rentals at Pierre Airport include Avis, Budget and Easirent. The car rental kiosks are right outside of the baggage claim area. Once you land, simply follow the airport signage to get there. There are agents at these car rental desks from around 8 am to midnight, Monday through Friday, 9 am to 9 pm on Saturday, and noon to 11 pm on Sunday. This means that more than likely someone will be at the car rental kiosk when you land. Additionally, if you have questions, you can get your answer directly from an agent.
  • With KAYAK, you can quickly compare the price of car rentals at this location. You can also search for add-ons or amenities such as GPS, XM radio, infant/toddler/child care seats, roadside assistance, or racks for skis. If you want to add an additional driver to your contract at this location, the rental car agencies will often let you add a spouse or significant other for no additional fee.
  • This airport is typically not busy except during the summer which is the busiest travel time in South Dakota. It can also be busy during the holidays and hunting season (in the Fall). If you plan to visit during either of these seasons, you'll need to book your car rental at least 90 days in advance to ensure you get the type and size of car you want.

FAQs about hiring a car at Pierre airport

  • How can I return my car rental at Pierre Airport?

    The car rentals at Pierre Airport are parked in a lot right next to the terminal which is a quick walk away. When you're returning your car, you'll follow the signs for car rental returns. Next, pull up in the parking lot and find a designated parking space for your rental car agency. Don't forget to record your mileage, collect your belongings and lock the car. There is a dropbox for the keys in the car rental area if it is after hours. Some of the car rental agencies including Avis and Budget will let your return your rental car after hours. However, you will have to arrange with the rental agency if you're going to return it late. There is most often an additional fee for this service.

  • What requirements do I need for a car rental at Pierre Airport?

    You must be at least 21 years of age to rent a car at this location. Some of the agencies, however, will require the driver to be at least 24 years of age. You'll also need a valid US driver's license in order to rent a car. If you're a foreign driver, an international driver's permit will suffice. Foreign drivers might also be asked to show their passports. Car rental agencies at this location will sometimes require you to be a passenger in order to rent a car at this location. Therefore, you should be prepared to present your return airline ticket if needed.

Fantastic car and overall experience, but I would have preferred unlimited mileage which is common in other locations.

Pros:

Was a good car no issues.

Cons:

Take away rentals with cost per mile to drive, I have never heard of this before. I realized after I had booked that down below the cost a fee of per mile was listed. I travel for work regularly and have never experienced this. The estimated total cost is very deceiving. Very dissatisfied.
