Many of these are students at Polk State College and Chain of Lakes High School. If you are new to the city, you need to be careful when navigating the intersection of US Highway 17 and Cypress Garden Blvd. You can customize the GPS app in your rental car to offer you enhanced convenience in navigating unfamiliar routes in Winter Haven.

Pros:

It was a nice, clean vehicle, easy to rent and the staff was nice

Cons:

I brought the vehicle back one day late, which I let them know about ahead of time and they told me that I would just pay for extra day, but they also added on an additional 15.00 as a late fee plus taxes which made it 85 dollars for the extra day, not 60 which is what they told me.

When I picked up the car, I asked the attendant who assisted me if I were to return the car the next morning, which was less than 24 hours from the time I picked it up, if I would receive full credit for the remaining days and was told that I would; however, when I returned the car the next morning, I received the bill after I left and it did not reflect any credit. I called the location to inquire and they said they were not sure to what I was referring.
