    You don't much time to drop off the hire car and then catch the Airtram to departures. Pretty slick operation.

    It is a good idea to have a FastBreak or other way to avoid the lane at the desk. Also when you are returning the car go to the 4th floor instead the lobby and take the AirTram there. It is faster

    Don't plan on doing anything same day. Lines are insanely long and move at a snail's pace. The rental company I have was a comparatively short line and still was in line for over an hour and a half.

    They screw you for $20.00 to take the tram to the rental car center...government fee...

    Remember to fill up gas in your car before turning it in. Or else you will get screwed!

    Give yourself 15 minutes from the rental car center to the terminals. If you're traveling out of terminal 3 or international G, you will need the entire 15 minutes.

    Give yourself 15 minutes to get from the rental car center to the terminals. Especially if you're traveling out of terminal one or the international terminal.

    I usually get my car from orbitz.com, and simply come here with my confirmation number to pick up the car.

    Remember the way you got off the tram. That's the way back on. Don't go downstairs and all the way back up.

    Don't prepay your rental car. When you arrive the line will be so long for that company you will want to rent elsewhere at any cost

    Give yourself extra time at the @hertz counter. Like an hour. They are extraordinarily understaffed and provide service at a glacial pace.

    If you rent a GPS, make sure it works before you leave and make sure it could charge in the car too. My GPS wasn't working and lost in SF was definitely not fun.

    Use Hertz, the other agencies are located in a bad place which makes rentals and returns and major pain.

    If you're headed to the airport on the airtram, don't go downstairs, outside, and back up. Instead, go up to the 4th floor and sneak onto the tram when the doors open to let others off. Saves 5 min.
