In our test from Terminal 3, it took 15 minutes to get to the car rental facility. Then, it took an additional 13 minutes for the shuttle bus to the Sixt location. All four terminals have sidewalks on the departures level, so we may have saved time had we simply walked the terminal to the rental car facility.

South Florida is a great place to rent a convertible, since they are not available in much of the United States year round. In the end, we rented a 275 HP Chevrolet Camaro Convertible RS from Sixt.
