How airport deliveries work with Greenvans

People waiting at passenger pickup for a van rental delivery at airport

We’ve all been there. You just landed at the airport. Chaos everywhere. The kids are hungry, you can’t find the restroom, and people are rushing to the exit, bumping into you with oversized suitcases on their way out. All you want is to get out of there, but the shuttle to the car rental office won’t arrive for another 30 minutes, and the taxi stand has a line that snakes around for what feels like miles.

I wish my rental vehicle were waiting for me curbside, you think to yourself.

With Greenvans, it will. All of our passenger shuttle vans for rent come with the option to reserve an airport delivery service. After deplaning and picking up your luggage, you’ll simply need to walk outside to the passenger pick up zone where your van will be waiting. 

15-passenger rental vans are great for groups

It’s easy to pick up your Greenvans’ van when you opt for airport delivery. 

During business hours: our driver will pull up curbside just outside of baggage claim so you can hop right in once you’ve collected your luggage. 

Landing after hours? We’ll leave your rental van in a well-lit, secure lot with clear instructions on how and where to find it. 

How do I get my van once I’ve landed? 
Picking up your van once you’ve landed is a simple process. In advance of your rental, we will complete the necessary steps to ensure delivery is smooth and quick. Here’s what to expect:

The first step is to reserve your 15-passenger van rental in one of two ways: 
1. by booking on our website or 
2. by calling our customer service line. 

During the process, you’ll be given the option for an airport delivery. 

Next, confirm your arrival time with Greenvans: Your arrival time determines if you’ll be doing a curbside exchange or an after hours pickup. Curbside exchange takes place during normal business hours, which are Monday – Friday, 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM, and Saturdays from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM.

After that, you’ll be connected with your driver: When finalizing the rental, you’ll be given the contact information of your driver, who will then text you on the way to the airport. 

Then, send a message after you’ve collected your baggage: In the event that the driver is unable to wait for an extended period of time in the pickup area, send a message when you’ve collected your baggage so he/she can meet you curbside. 

Finally, grab the keys and go! Because all of your license submission, payments, signatures, and paperwork are completed online in advance, all you’ll do at the airport is a quick key exchange.

What if I land after hours? 

In 2023, we saw nearly a quarter of U.S. domestic flights arrive late or cancel completely. If you happen to be on one of these flights, don’t worry about your 15-passenger van rental. Greenvans has a procedure in place to make sure your van retrieval experience is seamless, even if your flight doesn’t arrive on time or if you’re landing outside of business hours. Here’s what we do:

We track your flight
We keep a close eye on flight arrival times, so in the event of a delay that lands within normal business hours, we will still meet you curbside. 

We park the van in a convenient lot
If your flight arrives between 6:00 PM – 9:00 AM during the week or after 12:00 PM on Saturday, we’ll do what’s called a “van stash,” or unattended pick up. Each airport we service has designated lots for this.

We provide clear instructions
During the advance rental process, you will be provided with clear instructions on how to arrive at the designated lot from your terminal. The keys will be in the van and we’ll unlock it remotely when you’ve found it.

We use only safe and secure lots
Rest assured that designated lots are safe, well-lit, and easy to find.We will deliver your van, no matter what
Note that we will always find a way to complete an airport delivery, no matter the circumstances!

How do I return my van when I’m done? 

When you’re ready to return the van, we offer four options to make your departure as swift as possible.

Option #1: Return the 15-passenger van to the airport

Just like the arrival process, we will put you in contact with a driver the day before you leave. All you have to do is drive the van to your departure terminal, unload your luggage, and hand the keys over to the driver who will meet you curbside. 

Option #2: Return the van to your airport hotel

Do you have an extra-early departure flight? If you’re staying at an airport hotel and prefer to take the shuttle to your terminal, just let us know and we can pick up the van from the hotel parking lot. 

Option #3: Return the van to the Greenvans rental office

Clients often choose to return the van directly to our office before departure. Check the address of the office in the destination you will be visiting to see if it’s convenient to your travel plans. 

Option #4: Arrange a customized pick up

We are happy to arrange a van retrieval in the location that’s most convenient to you. Talk to your customer service rep about our customized pick up service while making your reservation.

Other things to know when picking up your Greenvans’ van rental at the airport

Below are a few other things to know when retrieving your 15-passenger van rental at the airport. Keeping these ideas in mind will ensure that your airport delivery experience is simple and seamless. 

Alert your driver when you’ve collected your luggage

The driver will be tracking your flight, but it’s always best to send a message when you’ve made it through baggage claim so he/she can be on the lookout.

Not all designated lots are created equal

For unattended pickups, pay close attention to our van retrieval instructions. Not all lots allow for nine-foot roof heights, so we’ll be very specific about the placement of your vehicle. The same applies for van drop offs.

Your van will be waiting for you at the airport, no matter what it takes

If you reserved an airport delivery, know that no matter what happens, we’ll find a way to get your van to you! Night or day, early landing or delayed take off, your request will be fulfilled.
