5.9 OkayOct 17 2021
Beware of prepaid reservations. It makes it hard for the Hertz staff to change anything if there is something wrong, like on my case the pickup/drop-off location!
1.9 HorribleSep 2 2021
Ended up not getting it because they fail to disclose the extra $200 you have to pay to get it
1.9 HorribleJul 27 2021
Hertz did not honor my reservation due to an error on the form. Had to rent from another company at a higher price.

Staff friendly.This is an off airport site with no shuttle. Not cheaper when you have to taxi between airport and rental site.
4.0 OkayMay 14 2021
When I booked online I had no idea that the location was NOT at the airport! They probably showed an address when I booked, but having never been there before I had no idea that that was not at the airport! The airport location said they could rent me another car, but it would be at a higher price,. But Hertz had already charged my credit cards and the airport location could not apply that amount to a new rental at the airport. I would have to pay the airport the full price and then try to get my money back from the other location. Then the other location said that if I took a cab out there to get the original car I could not drop it back off at the airport location when I returned home. I ended up doing $55 worth of cab fares both ways, not to mention the additional time delays. This will be my first and last time renting with Hertz.

Pick up and drop off went smoothly.I guess I wasn't paying attention that this Hertz rental was not an airport pickup, so we had to pay for a cab to get to the rental location in Fort Myers, not at the airport.

I reserved my car and the place closed at 4. No one told me and we took an uber from the airport and we couldn't get a car.It would have been much better if the place were open and I could have picked up what I reserved.

Awesome service!!!
4.0 OkayMay 24 2021
The car was clean and in great running condition.When I booked this vehicle, I had set the pickup location to RSW Airport. The car was a 28 minute uber away from the airport, which cost me additional money. When I asked if I could return it to the airport, they said no. This required us to leave the hotel an hour earlier to get the car dropped off and get a ride to the airport before we left. The staff at Enterprise wasn't rude, but they weren't friendly either. I don't generally write bad reviews, but it was very irritating that I booked a vehicle to be picked up at the airport and was not informed that the location that they reserved was not at the airport. I put that fault on KAYAK and not Enterprise.

The car was over $1000 for dodge minivan 1 week. It was filthy, scratched and smelled like smoke. No washer fluid in the car. Had to Uber to the enterprise location and back.
6.0 GoodApr 2 2021
Staff was not accommodating and rude.. came to visit my family due to a death and the manager had a problem picking the car up from our hotel. Our fight was stepped up due to weather and I did not have time to drop off the car.. I have never dealt with such rude staff.. Arrived and had to wait for the staff to clean a car. Back in Boston never a problem dealing with staff always friendly and accommodating..

Drop off excellent with a friendly agent.Wasn’t sure I wanted the truck that was offered for my long trip, but that seemed to be my best choice of the options available. However, the Dodge Ram Rebel pick up performed admirably for the 1200 mile trip.

Made the reservation 2 weeks in advance and was supposed to get a sports vehicle at 9am (got a call at 8:30 that nothing would be available till noon) and was able to pick up a sedan at noon. Would have been nice to have a full tank of gas to start. My drop off time was supposed to be noon but they told me I had to be there prior to that because they would be closed by then, even though there were later drop off options for that day. They allow multi people to make the same reservation without taking into account their inventory. They kept blaming it on the “snow birds”. Would not recommend and will never use them again.

Car rental insurance in Cape Coral

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Cape Coral car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Cape Coral.


Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Cape Coral car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Cape Coral

  • If you love the freedom of an open road and the beauty of being able to make your vacation what you want, a car rental in Cape Coral will give you that liberty. You’ll not only be able to travel at your own pace, but you can easily get to the far sides of the city without much hassle. If you enjoy golf, you’ll have an easier time reaching the Coral Oaks Golf Course, which is located 14 miles away from downtown Cape Coral. In a rental car, you can also enjoy other places at your convenience, including Fort Myers Beach, which is 13 miles away.
  • Once you arrive at Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW), you’ll find a designated rental car facility where you can pick your car of choice from different Cape Coral car rentals, including Hertz, Budget, and Avis. The rental service center is located at the ground level of the parking garage, which you’ll find across the street from the baggage claim. You’ll have an on-site and off-site rental car option. You can get the car immediately from the airport and drive yourself to Cape Coral. Alternatively, if you'd prefer not to drive from the airport, take the rental car shuttle from the east side of the garage and pick up the car in Cape Coral.  
  • As Cape Coral is a bicycle-friendly community with 90 miles of dedicated interconnected bike routes, you need to be vigilant and follow stipulated rules. These include yielding to cyclists in bike lanes when turning, checking for cyclists before opening your car door, and avoiding high-beam lights when cyclists are approaching. 
  • You aren’t likely to experience much traffic congestion in Cape Coral unless you have to travel down Cape Coral Parkway Rd to the Cape Coral Bridge or cross the Midpoint Bridge during the morning rush hour, which spans from 6am to 8:30am. During the high season from October through May, rush-hour traffic can be intense. You may also find a lineup around 3pm at Gulf Elementary and Middle School during pick up. Pine Island Rd is another street that can get backed up in the afternoon rush.
