KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in St. Augustine

  • With car rentals in St. Augustine, it’s easy to go anywhere you need to both within the city and the larger region. While the town does have basic public transportation, St. Augustine car rentals remain one of the easiest ways to move between neighborhoods. Having your own vehicle will also make it simple for you to go to places that are a bit further from downtown ​​St. Augustine, such as Fort Mose Historic State Park, which is around a 15min drive away. There is also the Davenport Park, which is approximately a 12min drive from the city center.
  • One convenient and efficient place to secure St. Augustine car rentals is the Jacksonville International Airport (JAX), located about an hour north of St. Augustine. Rental car counters can be found on the Lower Level of this single-terminal airport, next to the baggage claim. Agencies at JAX include Avis, Enterprise, Hertz, Budget, Thrifty, Dollar, Alamo, and National. You can collect and drop off your rental vehicle on the first floor of the parking garage next to the terminal.
  • If you’ll be flying into the area, picking up car rentals in St. Augustine directly from Northeast Florida Regional Airport (UST) can be a convenient choice. Northeast Florida Regional Airport hosts several car rental companies on-site, and their offices can be found near baggage claim in the main terminal. Some of the companies that can be found here include Avis, Hertz, and Enterprise.
  • When you opt for cheap car rentals in St. Augustine, you have the freedom to explore Florida's beaches and the great outdoors at the Osceola Wildlife Management Area, less than 2 hours to the northwest. You can take a 45-minute drive to Jacksonville, rated by Forbes as the second-best city in Florida. St. Augustine car rentals can also get you to Daytona Beach in an hour, where you can enjoy sun, sand, and world-famous auto-racing.
  • When driving car rentals in St. Augustine, it’s important that you read up on local driving laws and tips so you can operate your vehicle as responsibly and safely as possible. Downtown St. Augustine is quite busy and has many pedestrians, so drive with extra caution when you are in this area. In the state of Florida, there is a mandatory child restraint law for passengers under 16 years of age. Whenever you are using your windshield wipers, make sure that you have your headlights on as well.
  • In Florida, children five years old and younger must be restrained in a federally approved child restraint device. If you need to add on a child, infant, or booster seat to your St. Augustine car rental, make sure that you mention this when you make your vehicle reservation. Cheap car rentals in St. Augustine often have a certain number of car seats available, and if you wait until you pick up your rental to mention that you need a car seat, there may not be any available for your use.
  • To avoid getting caught in a traffic jam, try not to drive during rush hour, which usually falls between the hours of 7:00 and 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. There are some roads that are known for having a particular amount of traffic, and these include Coquina Boulevard and A Street. Pay extra caution when driving in the rain, as the roads tend to be more slick and dangerous during these conditions.

Find tips and insights for how to book your rental, what car rental insurance you’ll need, how to deal with a car rental agency and what extra fees to expect (and avoid!).

  • Why should I use KAYAK to rent a car in St. Augustine?

    KAYAK searches thousands of car rental agencies to provide you with offers from all car rental agencies operating in St. Augustine so that you can compare car rental rates, reviews and pick-up and drop-off locations to find the best deal for you.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in St. Augustine?

    If you will be visiting St. Augustine during the warmer months and you want to take advantage of the weather, consider renting a convertible. Otherwise, individuals that will be mainly in the city center may find an economy vehicle to be convenient for the area, as a smaller model makes it easier to navigate the busy downtown. If you plan on going to the beach or enjoying some recreational activities, a large SUV can be a nice choice as you will have plenty of room for carrying any necessary equipment.

  • How old do I have to be to rent a car in St. Augustine?

    To rent a car in Florida, you need to be at least 21 years of age. While you are allowed to rent a car when you are ages 21 through 24, you will most likely be charged a daily fee for being a Young Driver. Usually drivers 25 years old and older are not subject to this kind of fee.

  • What’s the speed limit in St. Augustine?

    Within the city limits, the speed limit for each road typically falls between 20 and 50 mph. Rural roads in the air may have a speed limit that is between 55 and 65 mph. When you are driving on the freeway, you will usually have a speed limit within the range of 45 and 70 mph.

  • Do I need to sign up for the rental car company’s toll program?

    Doing so is probably in your best interest because you will almost certainly need to drive on toll roads in and around St. Augustine. Most Florida toll booths take a picture of your license plate in order to charge you electronically. Because the license plate is registered to the rental car company, the charge will go back to them, even if you are using your own SunPass. If you have not signed up and paid for the rental car company’s toll program, you will probably be charged for the tolls plus a fine. To avoid unwarranted expenses such as this, you should consider signing up for the toll program when you rent from St. Augustine car rentals.

  • Where are the best places to park in St. Augustine?

    One of the largest parking areas in St. Augustine is the Historic Downtown Parking Facility, which can hold more than 1,200 vehicles and which charges fares by the hour and day. There is also a large amount of metered street parking that visitors can take advantage of. Keep in mind that street parking is free after 5:00 p.m. every day and all day on Sundays and federal holidays. In downtown St. Augustine, you will find a variety of paid lots that are centrally located. The city has its own smartphone app that allows you to see where space is available and even pay in advance.

I will never use Budget again for my rental needs... The Reservation I made for a Ford Transit passenger van, was not honored. I received a call from local agent a few hours before scheduled pickup, who stated that they were sold out of the vehicle I had "RESERVED"... What's the point of making a reservation, when most of the car rental companies, OVERBOOK their vehicles, Just like the airlines!!! Very dissatisfied customer!!!

Pros:

Drop off was easy and the car was comfy.

Cons:

I made a reservation for a compact car the day before at a specific location and I get to the pickup location and they tell me I have to drive another 15 minutes to another location because they were out of compact cars. That part was fine but a heads up ahead of time would’ve been great. The car I was given at the new location was dirty. The trunk was full of old receipts, a roll of raffle tickets and other trash. The cashier at the new location tried to charge me 30 dollars more than i was quoted. Luckily I caught it before he ran my card.

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:

staff at pick up was okay; polite; did not appear knowledgeable about the car nor have time to provide more than perfunctory direction to the best route to the hwy. staff at drop off was rude

Cons:

the car was quite comfortable. the dash board lights were very bright resulting in dangerous discomfort and distraction at night. the radio was of very low quality and also shined brightly. I tried, unsuccessfully, to reduce the brightness.

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing, this was a terrible experience.

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.

Cons:

Hours published as if open all day long. Came back to put spouse on, note on door they would be back in fifteen. We were able to find someone quickly, but no one mentioned that the office could be closed when I was told he’d have to come back in. Also, we’ve never had to pay for a spouse driver before, only extradrivers beyond that. Spouse driver was additional $13.50.

5.6 Fair

Mar 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Vehicle was clean and available on time

Cons:

I was not made aware by Kayak or by Hertz that there was an additional "concession fee recovery" charge equaling $62.35 tacked on to the rental amount. When I asked the agent he said this was because I picked the car up from the airport. If I had picked the car up at another location the fee would not have been applied. I could have just as easily rented this car from another location near by. I believe that both Kayak and Hertz are responsible. The agent also said that if I had booked directly with Hertz instead of going through a third party they would have made me aware. I feel like I have been ripped off. Last time I will use Kayak or Hertz to rent a car.
