There is no better way to see everything Gainesville has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Enterprise rental car. Don't waste time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. Having your own car enables you to go to the areas you want to see the most, whenever you want. Make your upcoming getaway to Florida even better with an Enterprise car rental.
With over one-hundred thousand people, Gainesville is a city that has lots going on. Many guests come to enjoy Gainesville's Pleasant winter climate and its small-town atmosphere. Whatever you choose to do first, you'll want to take in as much of Gainesville as possible while on your road trip. And with your Enterprise rental car, you'll be able to see and do more of what this city offers.
CarRentals.com works with several of the finest rental car dealers in the business. Enterprise started back in 1957 with a fleet of only seven vehicles. Today, they are recognized as world-wide leader in the rental car industry, with over 7,600 locations in 85 countries. Enterprise prides themselves on fabulous customer service and being there when you need them the most.
We strive to get you the best rates, whether you book. However, booking your car ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Be sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Enterprise's minimum age to rent a car in Gainesville is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Enterprise's policies to determine what the total cost is before you book.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Gainesville. Economy or compact cars are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Gainesville getaway can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Enterprise. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Enterprise does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Enterprise will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Enterprise.
Gainesville 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 region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Gainesville.
Enterprise offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different Enterprise. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Gainesville, having your own set of wheels lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to check out more of Florida, you can drive wherever you want to, without having to coordinate ride-hailing services or hanging out a stop waiting for the bus.
Before your next holiday, book your Enterprise Gainesville car rental and take off to all the items on your itinerary at your own pace. Reserve with CarRentals.com and speed along the streets in Gainesville, Florida.
