Compliments on my value!

Cons:

The hours of the drop-off location made it very difficult to plan for returning the car and causes us to have to extend a day on the rental. Morning or later afternoon hours would have been appreciated.

The pick up was no problem , the car was great also the price.

Cons:

Dropping off was hell. The receptionist did not pick up the phone. The call was routed out of State. And they also had no idea how to locate the drop off point. Yes they have the address, but no idea where in the mall . I wasted more than 1 hour in the mall trying to find the Avis office

Top tips for renting a car in Lakeland

  • Whether looking for a private weekend getaway or a fun-filled family vacation, Florida's Lakeland city in Polk County has something for everyone. You only need to book cheap car rentals in Lakeland to explore its beauty and heritage. If you are into arts and culture, you'll enjoy gazing at the Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture at Florida Southern College. Or, if you're into sightseeing, you'll find the 30-mile trip to Spooky Hill quite fascinating. You might also want to take a 48-minute drive to Bok Tower Gardens and gaze at this 250-art deco tower surrounded by lovely gardens, two hiking trails, and 20 rooms of El Retiro Estate. Book cheap car rentals in Lakeland through KAYAK and conveniently explore the city's offerings.
  • If you're looking to go to the Orlando Airport, you'll find ten Lakeland car rentals, including Hertz, Dollar Thrifty, Enterprise, Budget, and Easirent. These companies have a wide selection of cheap car rentals in Lakeland. After getting off the plane, head to the baggage claim area at level 1 from A-terminal to pick up your car.
  • Lakeland is like any modern American city with lots of human and vehicle traffic experienced on most roads and streets. The city has ample bike lanes for all cyclists, yet you will still encounter many cyclists using the same roads as motorists. So, one thing to be aware of when driving around Lakeland is to be on the lookout for jaywalking pedestrians and cyclists almost everywhere. To avoid dangerous situations, we advise you to maintain a duty of care and adhere to specific speed limits on each road. Another thing to keep in mind are the rush hours and busy highways. The roadways are busiest from 6:30 to 9:00 am and from 3:30 to 7:30 in the evening. You should avoid driving during these hours if you don't want to get stuck in traffic. It would help if you also steered clear of I-4, one of the busiest highways around peak travel hours.
  • If you are planning to fly to Lakeland, FL, then you need not worry about how you'll get to your hotel from the airport. Car rentals in Lakeland from Orlando International Airport are both cost-effective and convenient. Even if you plan to move around the city and visit some nearby attraction sites, such as the Kennedy Space Center, we've got you covered.
  • At the Orlando Airport, there are about 10 car rental companies, including Hertz, Budget, Thrifty, Priceless, Enterprise, Dollar, and Easirent, all with a wide selection of cars to choose from. From the exit terminal, simply pick up your baggage and head over to the A-side of the terminal on level 1 where you'll pick up your Lakeland rental car.
  • Like most major cities in Florida, Lakeland experiences heavy human and vehicle traffic on its roadways. There are bike lanes on most streets, but many cyclists still prefer to share the main streets with motorists. It is advisable to be wary of other road users, especially bike riders and pedestrians, who are notorious for jaywalking. It is also advisable to play your part to fulfill your duty of care. Always maintain the stipulated speed limit of every given highway and interstate to avoid dangerous incidences.
  • Lakeland experiences rush hour during early mornings and evenings. Between 6:30am and 9am and 4pm and 7pm most highways experience heavy traffic gridlocks as people rush to and from their respective workplaces. One such busy street is Interstate 4. It is the main route to Lakeland, serving both local commuters and tourists passing through Lakeland, and is one of the most congested roads during rush hour. However, the local government recently unveiled the new Polk Parkway, which has since improved the traffic situation in the Hub City. Polk Parkway provides easy access to Interstate 4 through the exit US 98. Snow, hail, and rain can also derail your trip, so make sure you are prepared in accordance with the time and season you plan to travel to Lakeland.
