Counter people on both ends were great. Car was a pleasure to drive, only complaint is it wasn't clean. Food spills and grease/oil on the back seat. Windows were dirty

We rented from the downtown location and returned at the airport. Everything was smooth and easy and the car was in excellent condition. Easy cab ride from the port.

I arrived to pick up my vehicle and they did not have the compact Nissan Versa or equivalent and they did not have one available. I ended up with a mini van that was like a boat to drive around for my vacation. I agreed to take it because the counter person said that he would sign it out on empty but I was charged $65.16 for gas when I returned it.

Our flight was a few minutes late, so I called them to let them know, and was informed that they closed at 6 sharp, no exceptions. We had to take a $146 Uber ride to North Port FL to get to a family event. Called their 800 number to have the rental switched to that branch. Told no problem, all set. Show up at the North Port branch, and they have no record of any reservation!

Using Enterprise was as usual a very good experience. Service was friendly, efficient and accommodating. Will use Enterprise again in the future.

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...

Car rentals in Tampa: All you need to know

Tampa is the largest city in Hillsborough County, Florida, and it’s full of must-see attractions. Affectionately referred to as 'The Big Guava,' Tampa is located on the west coast of Florida near the Gulf of Mexico. The city’s close proximity to the Gulf means the inviting waters of Tampa Bay are warm year-round. There’s no better way to experience the sun and surf of The Big Guava than being able to get to the beautiful beaches with a cheap rental car in Tampa.

How can I get a cheap car rental in Tampa?

Take our advice below in order to bag yourself the best deal on a car rental:

  • Search and compare all the deals available;
  • Avoid picking up your vehicle from an airport, as this can be costly;
  • Have a rough idea of how much mileage you’ll need for your rental period; 
  • Book as far ahead as possible.

Which car rental companies are situated in Tampa?

As well as the well-known companies like Sixt, Hertz, and Alamo, you can find a few smaller rental providers, too. Browse their inventory for the rental that best suits you.

What kind of car should I get in Tampa, Florida?

This very often depends on your vacation plans and the size of your travel group. Bringing the whole family? Browse our SUV and minivan rentals and you’ll never be short of leg room or luggage space. Solo traveler? Take to the road in a compact economy vehicle or treat yourself to a sporty convertible!

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Tampa?

By law, you will need to be 21 to rent a car, and under 25s may be required to pay a surcharge.

Do I need insurance to rent a car in Tampa, FL?

Yes. You can purchase insurance from the CarRentals.com checkout if you’re a U.S. citizen. Before you do, though, it’s advisable to ask your own car or credit card insurance provider if they cover you for rentals.

What fuel policy is available in Tampa?

Quite often, you’ll receive your vehicle with a full tank of fuel. The full-to-full policy means that you must return the rental with a full tank, too, so don’t forget to leave enough time to fill up!

Can I book with unlimited mileage when renting a car in Tampa, Florida?

Unlimited mileage is often the preferred choice and is widely available with CarRentals.com. If you opt for limited mileage, you’ll pay by the mile if you exceed the limit, so plan your journeys carefully.

Is it possible to hire a car one-way in Tampa?

Usually, yes. You might pay a surcharge for this, so check the rental company’s policy.

3 sights that you cannot miss in Tampa

Hop into your Tampa car rental and get ready to be dazzled:

  • Take in stunning views from the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, the ‘flag bridge’ of Florida;
  • Test your nerves on a roller coaster at Busch Gardens;
  • Visit the former cigar capital of the world in Ybor City, just under 3 miles from the downtown area.

3 great road trips from Tampa, Florida

As you’ve no doubt realized, Tampa’s urban sprawl is best negotiated with a car rental. You’ll find that exploring the Sunshine State is easy when you’ve got your own set of wheels:

  • Steer your rental car just over 20 miles west to check out St. Petersburg, home to the world-renowned Salvador Dali Museum, top-rated restaurants, and beautiful Fort De Soto Park;
  • Head 60 miles south to beautiful Sarasota, with its white-sand beaches and various shopping districts;
  • Jacksonville is just under a 4-hour drive from Tampa, and is northern Florida’s hidden gem, with its excellent golf courses and quieter beaches.

What is parking like in Tampa?

There are public parking facilities across Tampa, in the form of parking garages, city-owned lots, and on-street parking. Make sure you read the signs for time restrictions to avoid being towed or issued a fine.
