The staff was courteous and helpful. I wasn't sure where the shuttle pickup at Terminal A at LaGuardia was. Payless is not on any of the signs at the shuttle stops.

I have used Payless before and my first experience with them was great, this experience was so-so. I opted for a larger car, Jeep Compass or similar, and ended up with a Nissan that needed a service check. It wasn't worth the extra money. When checking back in, instead of it being completed at the car you have to go back to the desk where this time I had a guy paying more attention to his two cellphones than me trying to return the car.

the employees of the place are very unfriendly. They no say nothing. just look at you when they want to sell you insurance. On the other hand, you rent to tourist, why they only speak in english??? not all the tourist speak in english...

Once you get to the off airport site, the person running the operation was great...friendly, efficient, helpful. The location is relatively well located to major highways and we had no trouble getting there.

I rented a compact car , at pick up , they told Me they not have compact car at this time , so they offer a bigger one ,and made me to pay de diferente, even though I told the employee that I wasn’t my fault and they your honor they word and give me the same rate . They refused . It’s no right that you made reservations in advance and the have to pay more , Also y returned the car full of gas and they Charged $16 more for fuel service . I did’t realize that till I was on the plane ( that happened in Orlando airport) . I felt so frustrated that in hard times like this one we going tru ,some company take advantage from people. Thanks you

Budget was great. We had an issue with another rental agency that would have left us stranded. However, Budget came through for us.

We arrived and had a short wait to get assistance, but the line moved quickly. We had no idea going our to our car that we were walking out to Ann adorable red Volkswagen convertible Love Bug. It was spotless and clean. We had a great time in the Sunshine State soaking up the rays with the top down. Thank you for the unexpected perk!! Can't wait to rent from Budget in the future.

I reserved an SUV a month before my trip, I also went to the rental location a week before the trip to make sure everything was good, my SUV would be there, etc. The lady there said everything was ok and I was good to go. The day of my pick-up appointment, one customer was in tears,not even joking, and I was told that they had NO SUVs!!! How is it that someone reserves a rental for a certain date and time, yet no one makes sure that the required cars are there? Not professional at all. They offered three other cars, two of them were extremely small, the third was still small but was bigger than the other two. I reserved a SUV for a reason. I had 5 people, including myself, one of which is 6'6, and had a lot of luggage. Because that company didn't do their job, we had to leave a lot of our stuff behind and the whole trip was miserable because we were packed like sardines. I feel like the worst part of it all is that the employees just shrugged it off like it was ok and it was not a big deal. I work in retail so I understand the exhaustion from being verbally abused, but they didn't even care that their company messed up big time. I don't recommend the rental place at the Brandon mall.

I don’t like it when employees make sarcastic remarks about customers that just left the office. Makes me uncomfortable........unprofessional customer service, to say the least! The car was very dirty on the outside, the windshield heavily encrusted with dead bugs. The car was good, but the customer service experience left a rather bitter taste that doesn’t make me want to use Budget again.

Budget car rentals in Tampa: All you need to know

There is no better way to see everything Tampa has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Budget rental car. Stop wasting your vacation waiting on the bus, or being nickel and dimed with ride-shares or taxis. Having your own ride allows you to go to the attractions you want to see the most, when you want. Make your next trip to Florida even more enjoyable with a Budget car rental.

Why drive with CarRentals.com?

With close to a quarter-million people, Tampa is a city that has lots going on. Visitors come to enjoy Tampa's Pleasant winters. Of course, this city has more going on like its no lack of entertainment options. No matter what you decide on first, you'll want to check out as much of Tampa as you can during your trip. And with your Budget rental car, you'll be able to see and do more of what this city offers.

CarRentals.com works with some of the top dealers in the industry. With a name like Budget, you know they will try to get you the lowest rate. Open for business in Los Angeles, California around 1958, Budget always strives to provide the best prices for their customers.

What you need to know before you go

How do I get a Tampa Budget car rental at a great price?

We strive to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. But getting your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.

What do I need to bring when I pick up my rental car in Tampa?

You will need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.

What's Tampa's minimum age to rent a car?

Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Tampa is 21. Take time to review Budget's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles especially.

What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Tampa?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Tampa. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Tampa getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.

Does the United States require car insurance?

You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Budget in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?

Budget does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.

Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?

We suggest a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should return it filled up. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Budget. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

Tampa has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else Florida has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Tampa. If you want to add even more entertainment on your Tampa trip, you can head to one of the three theme parks in the area. Embrace your inner child, or take the fam to Adventure Island or Adventure Island Water Park.

Does Tampa Budget offer one-way car rentals?

Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
