My experience was great. When contacted the Enterprise location from my booking they identified another location much closer to my rental unit and transferred my booking. This made the pickup and drop off so convenient. Will definitely book at this location again.

I actually requested an upgrade at the last minute and they were very accommodating and friendly! The prices here were MUCH better than the airport and it's only a 10 minute Uber away.

Car rentals in Sarasota: All you need to know

A Sarasota car rental allows you to go where you want, when you want. You can check out all the sights, and even find out what else the rest of Florida has to offer. CarRentals.com has collected the most frequently asked questions about car rentals in Sarasota. Keep reading to see how to get the best rates on your ideal vehicle.

How do I get a bargain rental car in Sarasota?

CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rate. But, you can do a couple things to keep your next booking affordable. Be sure to:

  • Check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees
  • Book your rental car as far ahead of time as you can
  • Avoid airport pick-ups; they normally are more expensive
  • Compare weekly and daily rates; you might save more with a longer rental

Even a little knowledge can go a long way to getting you the most savings.

What rental suppliers have agencies in Sarasota?

There are around 11 rental car companies to pick from in Sarasota. You'll find some of the best brands, like Hertz. Scan through the reviews to get an idea of which one is best for you.

What type of rental car should I get for my trip to Sarasota?

Whether you want a roomy family vehicle or a low-cost economy car, the sheer wealth of options in this Florida town means you're certain to find an automobile that suits your needs. Some options include:

How old do you have to be to rent a car in Sarasota?

Normally, the age limit for renting a car in Sarasota is 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. However, you might need to pay a surcharge if you're under 25. Be sure to review the rental agreement to determine what the exact charge will be before you rent your vehicle.

Do I need insurance to rent a car in Sarasota?

When cruising through Sarasota or the rest of the U.S. of A., you will need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your automobile. Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the U.S.A.. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.

Although many major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Check the rental car company's policy before you decide.

Are there different fuel policies?

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.

What fuel policy should I get?

At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You should receive your car with the needle at "F". But, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited miles is a good option if you plan to do some sightseeing or visit a lot of business associates all over Sarasota. You can drive wherever you like without incurring additional charges. Be sure to read your policy to find out if there are mileage restrictions.

What are some must-see sights in Sarasota?

There is tons to see and do in this city. Sarasota has around 11 attractions that it is known for. Some of the most popular are:

  • Marie Selby Botanical Gardens
  • The John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art
  • Myakka River State Park
  • Golf

Fortunately, you'll be able to cruise to the one you want or see all of them.

Before you leave the lot

Before you get going on your Sarasota adventure, be sure you check a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. It's worth the time to:

  • Check out the car and determine if there is any damage or scratches. If so, mark it down on your paperwork
  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
  • Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
