Car rental at Tampa Airport (TPA): what you need to know

Next time you visit the area, see what you want to see exactly when you want to see it, with a cheap Tampa airport car rental.

How do I find the cheapest car rental company for Tampa International Airport?

Check out CarRentals.com to bag the best deals on cheap and convenient rental cars in the Big Guava. To keep things as cost-effective as possible, try to:

  • - Book as far in advance as you can;
  • - Avoid adding additional drivers, as that will increase the rate; 
  • - Inspect the car on arrival, and ensure any marks and scratches are noted.

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

Generally, you have to be aged 21 or over. Bear in mind that a special surcharge may be added if you happen to be under 25.

What car rental companies are in Tampa Airport?

When it comes to rental cars in Tampa, you’re spoiled for choice. You can take advantage of great deals from major rental companies like Sixt, Avis, and Hertz, or opt for smaller, local companies instead. It’s always wise to check a company’s user reviews before going ahead with a booking.

Where are the car rental companies situated at the airport?

Tampa International Airport (TPA) sits less than 10 miles from the city center, and it’s easy to get your visit off to a smooth start – especially if you reserve your car rental in advance. The airport has its own, dedicated, spacious Rental Car Center which you can access from the Main Terminal via the swift, speedy, and rather fun SkyConnect train service.

Do I need an insurance for a rental car in Tampa?

Yes, car insurance is necessary before you hit the road. It’s best to check if your own car or credit card insurance includes car rentals. US citizens may also purchase insurance at the CarRentals.com checkout, or opt to buy insurance directly from the car rental company.

What do I need to bring when picking up a rental at the airport?

It’s essential to remember to bring your driver’s license when you arrive to pick up your rental car. You should also have the credit card you used to reserve your vehicle. On top of that, if other drivers have been added for the car, they should bring their licenses too.

What fuel policy is available at TPA and which one should I get?

Rental cars often come with full-to-full fuel policies, which means a quick and easy start to your trip. You just have to remember to replenish the tank before returning the vehicle, or you’ll be landed with an extra charge.

Is it advisable to get a car with unlimited miles in Tampa?

Tampa has plenty of landmarks and attractions to discover, and you may also want to get out beyond the city borders to see more of Florida. If so, it’s worth checking how much mileage is included with your rental car. Many rental companies do provide unlimited mileage, which is great news for explorers.

Is it possible to hire one-way in TPA?

Prefer to drop your car rental off at a location that’s different from where you picked it up? That’s often possible, but it’s important to check with the rental company to see if extra charges will be added.

What kind of car should I rent at Tampa International Airport?

Perched on a glittering bay, Tampa is ripe for discovery – whether you want to cruise the urban core for museums and cultural attractions, head to theme parks, or head out to the beaches. Depending on your budget and needs, you can hop into an economy car, treat the family to all the space of an SUV, or enjoy a luxury convertible car rental.

Eager to get stuck into your Tampa adventure, and have the freedom to roam this sun-soaked slice of Florida? Use CarRentals.com to find your ideal rental car at TPA and relax in the knowledge it’ll be waiting for you when you step off that plane.
