Top tips for hiring a car at Apia Faleolo airport

  • One reason that so many travelers choose car rental at Apia Faleolo Airport is that there are few options to get from the airport to the center of Apia. While there are shuttle buses, taxis, and public transportation options, these all have drawbacks. Taxis can be quite expensive, shuttle buses can often be crowded, and public transportation can run on odd schedules and may not get you exactly to your destination.
  • One of the nice features of car rental at Apia Faleolo Airport (APW) is that they offer rental services from around nine different companies that are a mix of local brands and larger global companies most people are familiar with. Each of the companies has a service counter near the baggage claim, so it is easy to get your keys and be on your way with your Apia Faleolo Airport car rental since all the cars sit right outside the terminal.
  • When you are ready to return your car rental at Apia Faleolo Airport, park where you picked it up and bring your keys to the counter inside of the terminal building. While not all of the local companies will have staff outside in the parking areas, larger companies such as Avis and Budget will not only usually have staff in the lot ready to assist you, they have drop boxes where you can drop your keys and your contract and quickly be on your way.
  • You should expect to spend some more time picking up your rental car at the start of busy travel periods, like at the beginning of weekends. You will also find an increase in traffic here during the holiday seasons of Christmas and New Years. Many tourists visit to enjoy the festive atmosphere and explore the beautiful Samoan culture. Samoa's Independence Day celebrations in June are a significant draw for visitors. Flag Day on April 17th is another important celebration in Samoa.
  • Book your car hire at Apia Faleolo airport at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car at Apia Faleolo airport

  • What type of documentation will I need to rent a car at Apia Faleolo Airport?

    While documentation needs can vary for car rental at Apia Faleolo Airport based on the company you choose, most will expect you to have a valid driver's license issued in their name from their country of residence. For customers with driver's licenses in a non-Roman alphabet, an International Driving Permit (IDP) is also necessary. The IDP will serve as a translation alongside their valid driver's license. You will most certainly need a valid credit card in the name of the renter, as most companies here will not accept debit cards or cash for a rental.

  • What are some of the amenities I will find when renting a car here?

    Although this airport does not offer a dedicated rental center, the terminal area still offers plenty of amenities. This will include plenty of places to do some shopping as well as several places where you can get something to eat or drink that all offer specialized options that are traditional dishes in this area. Some of the other things travelers will find in the terminal include ATMs and currency exchange, free Wi-Fi for checking on e-mails or browsing media while you wait for your car, plus there are information desks that provide assistance and answer travelers' queries.

  • Which one of the rental companies is easiest to use at this airport?

    There is no doubt that the easiest company to use here is going to be the large global brand, Avis. The reasons for this include the fact that they will not only have the largest inventory of cars, but they will have a wider selection of cars. When you combine that with a tremendous online presence to manage your booking and a larger staff than smaller and more local companies, using this brand should generally speed up your rental experience at this airport quite substantially.

  • Which car hire companies will pick you up at Apia Faleolo airport?

    The only car hire company that offers shuttle or pick-up services from Apia Faleolo airport to off-airport locations is Budget.

They accept the booking and when my family pick it up they said no car available bad service

4.4 Mediocre

Pros:

The people at the office in Apia were pleasant and nice to work with.

Cons:

There was no Budget office at the airport. There was no shuttle or driver to meet me and take me to their office which is in Apia about 40 minutes away. I ended up paying for a taxi just to go to Apia and get my rental car that was advertised as being available for pick up at the airport. If you rent with Budget, call their Apia office directly and arrange a pickup.

First my booking confirmation got lost in the local office and I didn't get a car. One day later by surprise I met the staff in front of the city Office and they promised me to get the car that afternoon. And I received it ! Then everything went well with the car. Thanks to Budget Apia staff.
