      • Customers being dropped off at the curb - Travel to CVG Airport, follow signs for Arrivals/baggage claim to the front curb of the CVG Terminal.  Get dropped off on curbside of Arrivals/baggage claim level.  Enter the Terminal, turn right and follow signage for Ground Transport West to get to the Rental Car Center.
