I placed my order on line when I arrived I was told I had to pay more money for the car they were giving me because the didn't have what I ordered and they had to upgrade me. He also informed me that it was more money and he had to charge me more for the rental car. So I felt like I was being robbed because I was in a situation that I couldn't go somewhere else. SO I was forced to pay more. He said wait a minute and over 5 minutes later in comes back and says your cars outside and you receipts on the seat. I go to the car it had been hosed off and was all wet, the door was open and running. No explaining of anything about the car. I leave and go to pick up my grand children and I have pizza crust in the side door and it wasn't exactly clean. So what did I get for the robbery of extra money on an upgrade that I didn't ask for ( cost me more in gas too) plus the disrespect of not getting a clean car. So to my friends and family that rent always, as well as others that I meet and know BEWARE YOU WILL BE ROBBED BECAUSE WHAT THEY ADVERTIZE AND CONFIRMED IS NOT TRUE.

Picking up our rental car in town vs the airport, saved us over $200! Yes, we needed a taxi/uber from the airport to the dealer but it did not come close to the money we saved. Everyone was very helpful and friendly and there was no line or wait time for picking up the car or dropping off. Great deal!

HERTZ provided very good value for money. Ken was especially helpful when I returned the car, assisting me to move my many articles from the rental into the Uber.

I had a very good experience with your company. This is the second year we have used your company and both were excellent experiences.

I had a scheduled 1pm pickup at Hertz in St. Petersburg Beach, FL. I arrived a few minutes before 1pm to find office closed and nobody in sight. I spent 3 hours on the phone with Hertz before finally talking to someone who could/would help me. I took LYFT to the airport [$25] and was able to get a car there [at a separate additional charge]. NOTE: The Hertz supervisor and staff at the Clearwater/St. Petersburg airport were great once I got there. I am now dealing with both Hertz and Carrentals to get refunded the cost of my phantom rental. Neither party has been much help, so I am disputing the charge through VISA. P.S. I wouldn't recommend Carrentals.com to a friend either after this, there was NO WAY for me to contact them.

While arriving at the set time and date for my RESERVED car, it was not available. It just wasn't there. We were asked to wait. We did, obviously not there, but taking care of other matters, and returned 6 hours later. It never arrived. What's the point of making reservations when they are not respected?

You need a great car to take you around Clearwater whether you're going for a business trip or a vacation. See the famous sites around town and park in front of the best restaurants in Clearwater. We've answered your most popular questions about car rentals in Clearwater. Find out the dos and don'ts of renting a car.

How can I find a great deal on a car rental in Clearwater?

CarRentals.com always strives to get you the best rate. However, there are ways to get an even lower price on your upcoming booking. You can:

  • Compare all the deals available
  • Book as far in advance as possible. You will usually save more and get the car of your choice
  • Check the fuel and mileage policies. This way you'll avoid any surprises on your final bill
  • Don't get more car than you'll need. Generally, the smaller the car, the cheaper the rate

Just following even a few of these tips can help you save on your Clearwater rental car.

What rental companies have outlets in Clearwater?

CarRentals.com has around a dozen rental providers in the Clearwater area. You'll find well-known companies like National and Hertz and wallet-friendly suppliers like Economy and Budget. Scan through the online reviews to help you figure out which one meets your needs.

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

That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Clearwater. If you're having a little trouble picking the right car, be sure to read over the chart below. We have compared the most popular types of vehicles for you:

What's the age requirement to rent a car in Clearwater?

Generally, the age limit for renting a car in Clearwater is 21. But, there might be an added charge if you are under the age of 25 or for higher category rentals. Read over the terms to figure out what the exact price will be before you book your rental.

Do I need insurance to rent a car in Clearwater?

When cruising through Clearwater or the rest of the U.S.A., you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you know your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the U.S.A.. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some insurance on your rental, however, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you get a larger or luxury vehicle. Be sure to check the rental car company's policy before you decide.

What are the different fuel policies?

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

What type of fuel policy should I choose?

We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank. If you want to keep your expenses lower, fill up your tank before returning the rental car.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

If you wish to see all that Clearwater and maybe even the rest of Florida offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Clearwater. Review the fine print to make certain your mileage is truly "unlimited."

Before you drive off

Make sure you go over a few items prior to leaving the lot on your Clearwater adventure. It's worth the time to:

  • Walk around the vehicle and be sure there is no dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • 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 windshield wipers
  • Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
