KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Palm Coast

  • If you plan to rent your car from the cheap car rentals in Palm Coast for your road trips to the nearby cities such as; Bunnell, located about 9 miles away; Flagler Beach, about 9 miles away; and Palatka, about 26 miles from Palm Coast, with your kids, you should remember to adhere to the Palm Coast child seat safety guidelines. Based on these guidelines, children under 6 must be secured in a crash-tested, federally approved child restraint seat. 0- to 3-year-old kids should ride in a child restraint device or your rental car's integrated age, weight, or height-appropriate child seat. These should include rear-facing seats or a booster seat.
  • During the harvesting season in Palm Coast, which lasts from the middle of March to the end of May, driving your rental car from the car rentals in Palm Coast on the major roads may be tricky. Most of the farmers in Palm Coast consider this to be their most important season. However, during this time, main roads would see a significant increase in the number of slowly-moving tractors, grain wagons and combines. The slow-moving vehicles contribute to traffic jams.  To avoid causing or being involved in accidents, you will have to exercise patience on the road.
  • Persons with Reduced Mobility (PRM) can rent a car of their choice from any of the numerous car rentals in Palm Coast. Among the Palm Coast car rentals with the best PRM-friendly amenities to consider are; Enterprise, Budget, and Payless car rental agencies. These agencies will offer PRM-friendly amenities such as gas and brake pedal extenders and a surrogate drive. You should, however, note that most car rentals would impose a daily charge for a surrogate driver.
  • Palm Coast is one of the main Daytona Beach spots located along the scenic A1A River and the River to Sea Preserve. You’ll want to book your Palm Coast car rental to take advantage of all that the area’s golf resorts and nature preserves have to offer. Your car rentals in Palm Coast will allow you to carry all the gear you need to tee off the day at Hammock Dunes Club and Links Golf Course, fish in the Intracoastal Waterway, take a hike in the Palm Coast harbor, and spot rare endangered birds along Florida's Great Birding Trail or plan a beach day of lounging in the sun and snorkeling the ocean’s crystalline waters. Maybe you even want to take a day trip to Orlando to visit the city's many amusement parks, less than 1h 30min away.
  • Daytona Beach Airport is the closest place to fly into Palm Coast. Most rental car companies have their rental counters located directly inside the main terminal of the Daytona Beach Airport. The counters are located on the first level directly across from the baggage claim areas.
  • Palm Coast is served by Interstate 95, which crosses the city from north to south. Alternatively, U.S. Route 1 runs parallel to I-95 through the western side of the city. The city is not well equipped for pedestrians, with efforts to install more streetlights and sidewalks throughout the city. Please drive carefully through residential areas and be mindful of pedestrians who may step out into the road without warning. Pedestrians around the A1A and Flagler Beach for example are quite common. There are also several cycling routes to beware of, around the Marina and Matanzas Inlet, Highbridge areas, and from Hammock to Flagler. Please be mindful of respectfully sharing the road with cyclists around these areas.
  • The I-95 tends to get quite congested during the morning rush hour from 7am to 10am around the Palm Coast Parkway interchange. Within the city limits, the intersection around Old Kings Road gets quite backed up during rush hour as well. Please plan your trip accordingly and seek out alternative routes if possible. Be mindful of these times if you are catching a flight or on a tight schedule.

6.4 Okay

Nov 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

My daughter and I went to Budget office in St Augustine, FL to pick up car. First off, hours online were stated as 'opens at 7'am. The employee was not there until going on 8am. Another person told us they didn't have any cars. It was stressful waiting for person to arrive to check. Lucky for me, they did have a car. Headed up the road (an hour plus late) for Concord, NC. Arrived after hours at Avis-Budget office so I had to ca,l Budget for instructions. 'Charlie's helped me get a new drop off spot at Regional airport. I had NO idea how to vet t hete but a friend said they would get me to the airport, which was only 5 miles away. I was instructed to get there before 9pm when they close. We found our way there by 7:15 AND THEY WERE CLOSED!!! Had to drop keys in Dropbox. No one to check car. E etc. POOR BUSINESS!! Susan Streisel

Pros:

Jan 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Budget representative in St. Augustine was very nice despite me storming in while complaining about how long it took us to find the place. Got a good value for the money and the car served its purpose to take us to the airport.

Cons:

First, the pick up location was an address that led to a Walmart. No signs outside about Budget anywhere. No instructions in the confirmation email about walmart either. It took us forever to figure it out. The representative told us Walmart won't let Budget put up a sign outside. Well, at least send instructions to the clients about where to find the location. Second, car smelled bad. It had over 25000 miles on it, so it is older.

8.4 Very good

Jan 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Friendly and quick

Cons:

Lack of signage. The Budget rental desk is inside the Walmart, so I was confused when I arrived at the Walmart parking lot and didn’t see a Budget car rental location. I had to call to find out where it was.

Cons:

Charged for full tank of gas when I could have refilled. Person at Budget counter said Orlando would have been out of gas which was not true. Therefore my rental cost nearly doubled as charges $31.00 usd for gasoline and tank was still half full.

Cons:

When I arrived at hertz, they made me wait over an hour as they didn't have any cars available and someone had to drive it from jacksonville. Then, there was inflexibility when I wanted to change my drop off location. They wouldn't let me even during difficult times like COVID. Then, I received erroneous additional charges on my credit card. Horrible experience. And customer service was incredibly rude.

They did not have the car we reserved. In fact they had no cars available. They sent us to another Avis and they did not have the same type of car available so instead of honoring our price with an upgrade to the vehicle they had, they were going to charge us an additional $200. We will never rent from Avis again. Very disappointed.
