FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Sarasota’s top attractions

Sarasota has an attractive selection of art galleries and museums, many of which are an absolute delight to spend an afternoon in. Around Central Cocoanut, you’ll find the Marietta Museum of Art & Whimsy, an eclectic, pink-hued museum featuring an eccentric range of items, from pink flamingos to flying pigs. Further south, you’ll find Art Center Sarasota, a local nonprofit hub for showcasing artists. There are also many picturesque attractions as you make your way from Downtown to the Marina and Island Park, including the Unconditional Surrender statue (in tribute to that famous WWII kiss) and the always-alluring Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.

Driving north with a car hire from Sarasota, you’ll find the city’s star attraction, the Ringling Museum Complex. Founded by early-twentieth-century circus mogul John Ringling, the family built this large estate and aspired to become serious art collectors. Today, the eye-catching Venetian-Gothic residence is home to a number of museums, including the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, the Cà d'Zan (the former residence), and a Circus Museum containing many of Ringling Bros' original pieces of equipment. It’s hard to top the Ringling, but there are still plenty of exciting museums in the area to explore with a Sarasota car hire, including Sarasota Classic Car Museum, Sarasota Art Museum, and the Bishop Museum of Science and Nature.
