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.

Tampa Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Tampa

Car Rental in Tampa

On the Gulf Coast of Florida, Tampa is a city with plenty to offer. Many people come here for business trips - but it's equally popular as a vacation destination. Theme parks, a great zoo, and a spectacular aquarium make it wonderful for the family. Adults will enjoy the unique Cuban flavor of the Ybor City neighborhood. Whatever your reason for traveling, Tampa car rental will make your trip easy and comfortable. Check out how to rent a car in Tampa and get ready to hit the coast.

What can families enjoy in Tampa?

If you're traveling to Tampa with children, Busch Gardens has to be top of the list. As soon as you pick up your cheap car rentals at the Tampa airport TPA, the kids will be begging to go to this 335-acre amusement park. Rollercoasters, thrill rides, and animal viewing areas make Busch Gardens the ideal spot to spend a full day. Get there early in your Tampa car hire to make the most of the day out.

On a hot day, cool off at Adventure Island, Tampa's most incredible water park. There's plenty here to keep the kids happy, but adults will have a great time too, thanks to some intense water slides designed for grown-up thrill-seekers. Again, car hire in Tampa is the best way to get here, and you could easily spend an entire day exploring the 30 acres of the water park.

***

Tip:

Can't get enough of theme parks? It'll take about an hour and twenty minutes to drive the 84 miles from Tampa to Orlando. Take your rental car in Tampa and enjoy the trip through the heart of Florida. You might find that accommodation in Tampa is cheaper than in Orlando, making this a top choice for the budget-conscious thrill-seeker.

Things to see in downtown Tampa

One of the top attractions that you can get to in your cheap car hire in Tampa is the city zoo. Located downtown in Lowry Park, this has been voted the number one family-friendly zoo in the country and is packed with interesting exhibits. For even more animals, use rental cars from Tampa to get to the Florida Aquarium. This 250,000-square-foot building will dazzle the whole family.

Adults with an interest in history and culture will want to check out the Ybor City neighborhood. Once the nation's largest Cuban area, known as the Cigar Capital of the World, today it still has a real Latin flair and is regarded as a National Historic Landmark. Take your low cost car hire in Tampa there for great Cuban food, salsa music, and the intriguing Ybor City Museum and Park. Here you can learn all about the history of cigars in Tampa, once one of the most important industries in the city.

What road trips can I take from Tampa?

Use rental cars in Tampa as your starting point to explore the state of Florida. Miami is 280 miles away to the southeast, on a route that will take you past the Everglades and Fort Lauderdale. Almost 470 miles to the northwest, Pensacola is also worth visiting for its natural beauty and great beaches, offering a road trip that will take you right across the Gulf Coast of Florida. Look for cheap car rentals at the Pensacola airport PNS to make this trip in reverse.

How do I get around Tampa?

The best car hire in Tampa will give you total freedom during your trip, allowing you to hop into your vehicle and visit interesting sites in and around the city, as well as further afield. Cheap car rentals in the United States are easy to find, making this a budget-friendly vacation.
