  We had hoped to fly in here and rent a car for our week in the Tahoe area. For a Sunday arrival, there is simply no way to do this. Two car companies are shown on the airport website, but they are both no-shows. The local Hertz number does not answer in 15 tries and has no answering machine to leave a message. The national Hertz office offshores phone answering to the Philippines, and their agents deny the existence, depending on which agent you talk to, either of the airport itself or of any Hertz outlet at or near this airport. The local Enterprise number goes immediately to the national office; at least they were able to say explicitly that there is no weekend coverage here. Scott at the airport was very helpful in giving information over the phone, but in the end there was simply no way to use this airport under the circumstances. We'll drive the extra 40 min from another airport.

  Great experience all around. Here are some notes: - Truckee airport website has a great noise abatement video - The temp tower was very helpful and friendly - Transient Parking was very close to Hampton Inn hotel (which was great). A small off-road walk to get to the back parking lot of the Hotel. - Two bike options are available (airport only beach cruisers and a hourly/ daily rentals that you can ride to downtown Truckee). - Our plane was $10 a night for parking, rope tiedowns.

  If you're flying a private jet into here with VIP's then plan ahead. There is no actual "line service". You will be parked and then offered many golf cart rides to not so much from the facility where you can get your own ice, and thats all they have. They do not receive catering, never found news papers or a coffee machine... Crew room computer was packed with other pilots trying to get their paperwork. The landing fee for our plane is $760 or take 600 gallons. 600 GALLONS IS 4000LBS... Seriously? We were there 3 days and spent $3300 dollars for rides in a golf cart, 600 gallons jet-a, 3 nights parking and a lav service. Looks like all the other reviews are for smaller planes...
