KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Cape Coral

  • Cape Coral is a cape with two bridges as entry points. The cape is flat and large, with streets laid out far from each other. Cape Coral car rentals are a more convenient way of getting around. Navigating cheap car rentals in Cape Coral becomes easy once you’re familiar with its street grid. The Embers Parkway and Hancock Bridge Parkway split the city into the north and south parts. On the other hand, Santa Barbara Boulevard divides the city into the west and east. The main thoroughfares connecting the east and west parts are Cape Coral Parkway, El Dorado Drive, Pine Island Parkway, and Veterans Memorial Parkway. The main thoroughfares connecting the north and south are Santa Barbara, Chiquita, and Del Prado.
  • Southwest Florida International Airport is located about 15 miles from Cape Coral; the driving duration is about 30min. Grab your rental from the airport and hop on Rental Car Return Road, join Terminal Access Road, and head northeast. Stay on Terminal Access Road for about four miles, then make a slight turn to merge to I-75 N. Drive almost a mile, then use exit 131 heading to Cape Coral. Drive about half a mile, merge onto Daniels Parkway, then continue for about five miles. Make a right to S Cleveland Avenue, join College Parkway, and continue to Cape Coral Bridge, which provides access to the city via Cape Coral Parkway E.
  • Cheap car rentals in Cape Coral should avoid certain dangerous intersections while driving around town. These are the intersections on Santa Barbara Boulevard and Veterans Memorial Parkway, Cape Coral Parkway and Coronado Parkway, and Veterans Parkway and Country Club Boulevard. These intersections are dangerous due to inadequate turn lanes, heavy congestion, and inadequate traffic control systems.
  • 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.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Cape Coral for $43 or less
  • Book your rental car in Cape Coral at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Cape Coral are around -42% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

The manager was great. However, it does not matter how great the manager is if the company does not care about their employees or customers.

Cons:

To start, you should have the car that was reserved. Secondly, you make the customer go through all the trouble of getting the car in Cape Coral after you overcharge for the same car that I could have rented outside in Fort Myers. Thanks to the manager, my trip was not ruined not that you really care. The biggest problem is that there is no accountability with companies anymore.

May 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was clean and in great running condition.

Cons:

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.
