Top Tips For Renting a Car in Tampa

  • For travelers planning on renting a car during their time in Tampa, it is as simple as hopping onto the SkyConnect train after your flight to Tampa International Airport lands. The SkyConnect train can be found in the main terminal building and connects the airport to the Rental Car Center and the Economy Parking Lot.
  • Travelers new to Florida should be extra careful when driving in the rain, especially during the later summer months. Storms can appear out of nowhere and can quickly flood the streets with water, making them dangerous for inexperienced drivers. The flooding will pass quickly, so just be sure to keep an eye on the weather.
  • Rush hour in Tampa lasts from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and picks back up again from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. During rush hour, Hillsborough Ave and many of the I-275 exits can become very backed up so it pays to time your trip accordingly. Much of the historic downtown is made up of smaller streets that can grind to a halt during rush hour as well.
  • One of the major advantages to renting a car in Tampa is the easy access to all of its wonderful nearby beaches and state parks. For instance, Clearwater Beach, Fort De Soto Park, and Caladesi Island State Park are all readily accessed by car, but are extremely laborious to reach via public transportation. Chances are, you will want to take advantage of the wonderful shopping opportunities in the greater Tampa area and a car is necessary for that as well.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Tampa for $28 or less
  • Book your rental car in Tampa at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Tampa are around 18% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Full-size rental cars in Tampa are around 33% cheaper than other car types, on average

Where are the best places to park in Tampa?

In general, streetside parking is not too difficult to find throughout Tampa, especially in the less crowded outer areas. However, in the historic downtown area, streetside parking can become scarce and difficult to find. Parking garages are a great option for drivers heading downtown, though, as they are amply available and fairly cheap.
