What should I have with me when I pick up my rental car in Tampa?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Tampa's minimum age to rent a car?
Fox's minimum age to rent a car in Tampa is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Fox's policies to determine what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Tampa?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Tampa. Economy or compact vehicles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Tampa vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Fox in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, provide 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 company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Fox?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Fox. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Tampa?
Tampa has enough 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 are looking for more excitement on your Tampa vacation, you can head to one of the three theme parks in the region. Embrace your thrill-seeking side, or take the family to Adventure Island or Adventure Island Water Park.
