Mods, maybe alter the thread title so that it shows the relevant year?

Cheers!

The ATS may be technically running 24x7, but I waited for 25 minutes after my 4am arrival today. Not sure if that is the norm at that hour or if there was some sort of an issue, but it took me 40 minutes to get to the MMF.

They've been doing scheduled maintenance overnight here and there, but nothing I see was planned for last night into this morning.

To & From Car Rental

Glad to know that the ATS is running.
Have a question, hope someone can help or confirm:

Is the MMF where Budget/Hertz etc Car Rentals are located. How far a walk from MMF to Budget to pick up a car?

Thank you in advance.

All the airport car rental counters are located at the MMF. The rental counters are on the ground floor. The cars are located on the upper levels, an escalator or elevator ride away.

I haven't paid attention to Budget but Hertz and its corporate siblings are directly behind the rental counters on the ground floor. Again, at least with Hertz (not sure about the others) if you're a rewards member you can just go from ATS to car without stopping at the counters. IME, the longest part of the journey is the escalator ride down from the ATS to the ground floor... less than 2 minutes from floor to car.

My experience renting a car at the MMF was with Alamo. IIRC, Alamo and National's, its corporate sibling, cars were located on the third level. Skipping the counter was not an option despite my being an Alamo Insiders member. Avis' cars are located on the second level, I assume Budget's are there too. I just confirmed that they are.
