Rental Car Companies servicing the airport include Advantage, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, National, and Thrifty.

The 2006 SCI National Conference is a multi-venue event, and having a car will be a necessity. We tried to keep the accommodations costs down with that in mind. The four venues are: Downtown San Antonio: Travis Park United Methodist Church; Trinity University; University of the Incarnate Word, and the University of Texas at San Antonio. Some of these venues are far-flung, and we tried to keep this in mind in the rare case when event locations change during the day.

We will include ample maps and directions in the conference booklet to help you navigate the conference.

The conference hotel is:

The Red Roof Inn
1011 E. Houston Street
